Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 14, 2021

Videos of multiple arrests in Ocean City, Maryland, have gone viral showing the violent extremes that local police will go to when upholding the state's ban on disposable e-cigs. In one, a group of cops tackled and pinned a teen to the ground before violently kneeing him in the ribs. In another, a teen was tased before being put in handcuffs. All for the crime of... vaping.

I oppose cop brutality, but I make an exception for vapers, as long as they thug out on smokers as well.

The cop dropping his knee into that guy's ribs needs to go.

After that he immediately goes to start shoving somebody who was objecting to his actions.

He's a large lawsuit waiting to happen.

BTW I still think we're going to eventually see a video like this end with some dead cops. Someone is going to say "enough" and start shooting, start swinging a bat or something.

Police need to stop recruiting ex-military.. thier training makes them way too aggressive and leaves them with an "us vs them" mentality.

#3 - you get what you pay for. If you pay low wages, you get inferior applicants. The defund police people don't realize it, but they are are actually setting the stage for even lower quality people becoming police officers. It doesn't help that the unions protect these bad apples, either.

Pay more and demand much higher standards. Use extreme prejudice to get rid of the abusive and racist (no matter race) cops, regardless of union protection. I believe this would lead to a drop in thug cops.
