Just when you think the police could not outdo themselves in stupidity.
They outdo themselves.
A homeless man was assaulting two black teens with a knife. The teens defend themselves with their skateboards.
The cops arrive and (drum roll):
point guns at and detain the black teens.
The gathered crowd tried to explain that the teens were the victims, but they were black which evidently equates in those cops minds as guilty.
If the teens had been white, it is pretty much a given that police would have approached with weapons in their holsters and taken statements from the teens and bystanders and set out about searching for the homeless man.
Abolish qualified immunity.
