So this is what freedom looks like. We have agreed as a people to fund thugs that can stop and harass us at any given moment in time. This is what freedom looks like: Being stopped, dragged out of your vehicle and beaten in the street because the state has removed your right to freely travel. Is this really America? Is this Liberty? Is this the notion that our nation was founded on? Please tell any one of our founding Fathers that the new Govt. won’t allow them to travel without proper licensing or they will be dragged from their carriage and beaten. You see the point. We have to stop walking around every day pretending that we are free, because we are not. We must live the truth and face the truth that this is not freedom. We must consciously face the fact that we live in a state of oppression and confront it. This is not “For and by the people”. This is by the state and for the state. The consent of the governed does not extend to tyranny. The consent of the governed is being withdrawn and it is becoming more apparent every day and will continue so moving forward. Up until now, the joke has been on us. But now the joke is over. Buckle up.
“EUCLID, Ohio — Suburban Cleveland police have released dashcam footage of a violent arrest after witness video of the incident went viral, CBS affiliate WHIO-TV in Cleveland reports.
The Euclid Police Department released footage of the Saturday arrest on Sunday afternoon after witness video racked up thousands of views on Facebook.
In the dashcam footage, a police officer asks a black suspect to “face away” from him twice before kicking and taking the man to the ground. Two officers can be seen struggling to subdue the suspect while a woman appears to plead with the suspect. One officer begins punching the man and hitting his head against the pavement.
“He don’t got no gun on him,” the woman screams in the video. “Stop hitting him!”
“Euclid police said they will review the incident “so that the public can have a full and open understanding of the series of events that eventually led to this violent encounter.”
After footage of the arrest went viral, protesters marched on Saturday, demanding answers from police.
“There seems to be some aggression and at no time have we seen de-escalation take place,” Michael Nelson, attorney for the Cleveland NAACP, told Cleveland.com. “This particular videotape is disturbing regardless of the underlying circumstances.”
