    It's amazing how many American police officers are truly ****ed in the head.

    A man has recently died after police chokeholed him for no valid reason.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...=NYDailyNewsTw

    Within the recent month there was also this example of a policeman punching a woman in the face... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-n...atedly-3814090

    and someone posted a thread a few weeks back of police shooting a cow to death for no reason...

    In these examples, what would happen if citizens stepped in to defend the victims? They get charged for obstructing the police? Like the people videoing/witnessing it, there's not really a lot you can do.

    Wonder if we'll end up seeing a similar trend in the UK

    Nothing new. I don't usually have a problem with the police roughing up criminals but killing unarmed men us pretty despicable.

    I doubt we'll see a similar trend here in the UK. Our police is pretty docile compared to places like the USA and France. Most don't even have guns/

    British police are actually very benign and docile in contrast to other police forces around the world. If anything the trend will continue in that direction as people no longer seem to be cautious of the police as once was the case.
