  • Yep. It’s all about the spectacle. People just want to get the next viral video. Or catch a cop violating a violators civil rights…I’ll bet there is more than one cell phone camera recording out there of this incident…It’s whats wrong with this country nowadays… Oh, and I have not stood by and watched something like this go down without intervening…Before I joined the Navy, I, on two occasions, came to the aid of an officer in a one on one and a three on one knock down drag out on the side of the road. The worst one was when I was 16 years old, made it three on two, we pummeled those punks into submission and then into the hospital, and ultimately jail. Oh, and now I stand on the thin blue line and I have had citizens come to my aid on several occasions when I was about to have my head handed to me by a group of scumbags…But I work in a small town in Texas where I know most of the citizens…They may not all like me, but they wouldn’t let that happen in their neighborhood.
