I'm a Bro-ny!
Are American police really as bad as these threads make out, or is it just that America's a huge country with a few bad apples?
Does your media demand sensationalism to the extent that stories reported are told solely from exaggerated accounts from (what can sometimes only dubiously be called) victims?
While we have stories about the police loving up over here in the UK, it usually just comes down to incompetence - as opposed to the malice that the stories from America seem to paint.
N.B. I am not a "police apologist" or whatever I'll be called for asking this, I'm just amazed at the disparity I see between the UK and US on this. I'm also not saying the woman in this case deserved what she got, but I will still reserve judgement until I hear more than just her testimony.
On the off chance you don't actually know that Caro is batshit insane, no, all American police aren't like that and goddamn the fact that people have to think that they're apologists for thinking so depresses the gently caress out of me.
