Via HuffPo, an unusual entry in our long series of cops behaving badly: There’s no doubt that this is, in fact, brutality, but there is some doubt that any serious harm was done. Also, what’s the deal with the press making a big deal about the high-five? It’s not clear if the second cop even saw the kick to the suspect’s face. Looks to me like they’re celebrating having apprehended him, not booting him in the skull.
Still, a nasty blow, and one for which he’ll surely reprimanded. Prediction: Desk duty for three months.
