Video: Watch black suspect beat white female police officer senseless

Video: Watch black suspect beat white female police officer senseless

Wayne Dupree writes that this video explains why police need to use excessive force against suspects who resist arrest. I’m not sure I agree with Dupree’s reasoning, but the footage of a traffic stop should give pause to anyone subscribing to the view police are just bullies when confronting black would-be criminals.

In it, black man mercilessly beats a white female patrol officer unconscious before ordering his daughter back into his car, telling her, “I can’t go to jail.” Happily, as the voiceover notes, that’s exactly where he did go and will be spending the next 60 years. Try to imagine how differently the scenario would have turned if the officer had drawn her service weapon.
