The individual disobeys a direct police order, is out after curfew and attempts to drive off but gets caught in a traffic jam? Why is there almost always a pattern of disregarding a police order? Maybe the officers are racist? Oh…wait…that can’t be it? What then? Oh yeah…he totally disregarded a direct police order. I wonder if police are sick and tired of this too?
The problem with “media” is that people these days want instant information and media - by this I assume you mean the mainstream media - and they haven’t caught up.
An article shouldn’t be released without all the facts - why were those two teenagers stopped*, what* they did to require being arrested etc.
If the DA has made a kneejerk reaction to placate the crowd, that will and should be addressed. But don’t forget the cops involved probably aren’t really in trouble. Most cases of police brutality see the union intervening and the cop getting his job back if he’s been fired.
Having said that, I do wonder if the mainstream media is conflating protester and rioter now - just as they conflated “illegal alien” with immigrant.
Protesters aren’t violent - once they become violent they are rioters and if they need to be shot, etc, go for it.
