THINGS LIKE THIS DON'T HAPPEN IN FREE COUNTRIES. It doesn't matter that the abuse of this respected scholar -- for jaywalking! -- was perpetrated by local cops. This "throw 'em on the sidewalk and grind their face in the dirt" mentality is thoroughly entrenched in U.S. police culture.
Doesn't matter whether such bullying is fostered by federal paramilitary training, violent-cop TV shows and movies, recruiting practices that draw cops from the dregs of society, the poison of an unjust justice system, or what. It just has to stop.
