You Bruised My Knuckles With Your Face

It's a disquieting video, a recording of two NYPD officers assaulting a homeless man for taking up more than one seat in an almost empty 6 Train (Lexington Avenue local):





The video of this small man being beaten by two larger men is disgusting, but the crowning grotesquerie of it all occurred later, when he was charged with assaulting the arresting officer's knuckles with his face:


Saha said in a criminal complaint that Long told him Joseph kicked his right hand while the officers attempted to cuff the ejected rider on the platform. Long, according to Saha, “sustained swelling and substantial pain to the knuckles of his right hand and was transported to the hospital.”

“He informs me that because of the swelling he is unable to open and close his hand without experiencing pain,” Saha said.



Yeah, I imagine you, dear readers, can scarcely believe it as well. Thankfully, Manhattan District Attorney and utter piece of trash Cy Vance dropped the assault charges against the victim of this act of brutality, but being trash, did not drop misdemeanor 'resisting arrest' charges. AOC, as usual, brought her typical compassion and moral clarity to bear on this issue. We need first responders, not fist responders.

Oh, diddums.

I can't believe the stories about the police coming out of America. If they were coming out of the Philippines or Indonesia, they'd be considered over the top.

I hope for so much better in your country's future.

Right at the beginning of his term, Trump told the police not to be so nice to their prisoners.

What surprises me is not even that they hit, but how quickly the police come out swinging, clearly not in self-defense. Outrageous!

Yours crankily,

It's insane. I like to fight recreationally, and the idea of beating on a weaker, obviously distressed individual is abhorrent. There was plenty of room in that subway car, this cruelty was so gratuitous and arbitrary.
