Join the Excessive Police Force

Last month, this video of excessive force from Victoria police officers caused quite a bit of controversy in my hometown. Look, we all know cops regularly suffer abuse from drunk nightclub goers and they have a tough job at the best of times, but there is NO excuse for this kind of excessive force and blatant abuse of power. I have enormous respect for police officers who put themselves in the line of danger everyday but when the person is already detained and is not resisting arrest, why knee them and hit them when they are on the ground?

I ws reminded of this video when I saw this funny picture online this morning. “Small Penis? Join the Police.”

There are many other far worse examples of police brutality and excessive force all over the world, however, the bottomline is those who choose to serve and protect are not above the law themselves and your ego should be left at home when you are out on patrol.
