Unlike the non-sense political bungling of the Martin/Zimmerman sideshow, if this really went down this way, this is something to truly be outraged about.

I admit: I frequent LewRockwell.com, so I get more than my fair share of these cop abuse of power reports, but this is ridiculous.

This video did not bring up race, but there is a well known biological effect that people will have the fight or flight effect fire up when they see erratic behavior in other humans and they have attributes such as race, clothing, hygiene, etc the person is not familiar with.

There is a type of unconscious stereotype effect going on here and if we were smart we would screen cops for their physical ability to control the fight or flight response and actually go through conditioning training to reduce it.

This stuff does not need to happen, but it does all the time.

Why did the guy charge at the cops when they arrived?
