Great, one of these

Birmingham police beating video: Five officers fired – Breaking News from The Birmingham News – al.com

The good news — if there is ever any good news about public servants beating an unconscious man — is that in contrast to some cities, the mayor and the chief are taking decisive action, and the right action. It’s been delayed, because the officers involved and the mid-level supervisors covered it up, but good work.

  1. Are we still in a post-racial society? Just checking.

  2. This technically happened before the Giant Cataclysmic Event last November that caused Post-Racism, so technically this could be motivated by some sort of racism.

  3. I was impressed with the DA coming fwd with this. Many would be happy to offer the defendant a sweetheart deal or even dismiss to protect “our officers.” This has a racial aspect but I know of several cops, b&W who have no qualms about giving beatdowns regardless of race. It is also sad to see police dep’ts becoming so militaristic.

    Hells yeah. We’re in a post-racial society after all.
