A few weeks back I did a post on Police Brutality , so this story from CNN.com caught my eye right away. In Prince George’s County, Maryland a police officer has been suspended, and prosectuors are investigating an incident in which officers wielding nightsticks beat John Mckenna, a University of Maryland student, to unconciousness. A police report was filed stating the student had assualted officers and their horses, but a video that was filmed of the incident seems to contradict the report. Here’s the video, what do you think?
From what I can see, the student was actually trying to step away from the officers. The article went on to say that Mckenna sustained a cut on his head that required 8 staples to close, plus a badly swollen arm and bruises on his body.
