Welcome to the jungle

This is your war on drugs. This is your war on civil liberties. This is your war on the Constitution. This is your war on your fellow citizens.

What you see on this video isn't an aberration. It's what goes on, in one form or another, every day in this country.

I'm fairly certain that if you read the offense report it won't leave quite the same image in your mind as this video will.

This should be required viewing for every judge who sits and decides whether the police acted reasonably or not in a given situation. This is what happens when you say it's okay to infringe upon our civil liberties in the name of security.
