I'm generally in agreement with TD when it comes to thug cops, but this is a pretty poor example. For starters, the video doesn't show the incident that led up to the arrest. While resisting arrest is usually a catchall charge, it looks like she might actually have resisted, and in that case these cops really did act far more professionally than I'd expect. As for the chief, he didn't say at least they didn't raper her or even suggest that they might have. He said with other departments having to deal with such problems he's relieved that this is the biggest controversy his department faces. I think that's actually a reasonable statement.
Bad show from Techdirt on this one.
