Police brutality cases on rise since 9/11

Email Print

USA Today is reporting on an increase in prosecutions of police officers for uses of “excessive force” (I’d rather drop the euphemisms and go with “beatings and tortures”) or other tactics that “violate victims’ civil rights” (I would have used “murder”).

According to the article, “the heightened prosecutions come as the nation’s largest police union fears that agencies are dropping standards to fill thousands of vacancies and “scrimping” on training.”

State control of the police-justice-law triumvirate guarantees low quality of service, high prices, inefficiency, injustice and chaos.
