The Power of the Video in the News


, Blogger: Orry's Orations
I tell ya, video is everywhere, and I just don't get why folks don't pay attention, especially cops in the limelight. I saw something a couple of days ago that really bugged me. Campus police (for lack of a better term) pepper sprayed a line of students in an Occupy Davis protest. They were all lined up, and this officer just walked slowly and purposefully up and down the line, spraying these folks. It was idiotic. Actually, I'm losing a lot of confidence in the proverbial men in blue everywhere. I think they all need to go through anger management as part of training and then mandatory refreshers every year. These folks weren't fighting; they were sitting. And it was all caught on video.
