Okay, can't find link to the youtube video, just seen it on the news, so armed crack head robs drug store, 4 cops beat the crap out of him once he finally gives up from the run.
Are they justified?
The news media are making the police look as criminals.
Did he deserve it?
He is a known drug addict, and most likely this isn't the first crime he has done.
On top of that, he was running away from police.
What's my opinon?
Well a can of worms, I think the police should be allowed to use lesson beatings as a deterant for repeat criminals.
If the police catch you speeding over 40, they are judge and jury right on the spot, what makes even worse crime any different?
