Follow the link at the bottom to watch two pretty stunning videos.
The second is that of a Congressman getting unnecessarily physical with a couple of students who just asked him a simple question.
But the first is the really shocking one: a Seattle policeman in a scuffle with a couple of unruly jaywalkers (jaywalkers
!) and responding by punching a 17-year-old girl in the face! Not slapping, not backhanding, not even pulling back on his hit... a proper, full-on, cocking-his-hand-back-and-unleashing-a-haymaker sort of punch, right on the face. What makes it even worse, he's a white policeman against a black*
girl. That's just asking for trouble.
And these are the people who are supposed to help keep society in order? Rash of video footage incriminates lawmakers, police - Yahoo! News * Or should I say African-American? I can never remember whether or not 'black' is acceptable nowadays. I think I've heard enough people in the media say it to think it's alright...
