She has learned a valuable lesson.  The police are filthy animals that have a license to beat the crap out of you whenever they feel like it.

She'll take this lesson to heart.

They say the Devil lives in my soul
I promise not to let him take control

Nah, the real lesson she learned is not to walk outside while black.

You think this would have happened to white kids? Hellllll no.

Rincewind53: You think this would have happened to white kids? Hellllll no.


It really would depend on the part of town that they were in.  The girls admitted to breaking curfew, giving the police some attitude, running away & fighting back when caught.  The police were justified here in giving out a very minor amount of street justice regardless of color (perhaps not to the extent that they did here though).  In a neighborhood filled with expensive houses, expensive cars & doctors & lawyers living there, no the police would have been much more gentle.  However I can think of a neighborhood around here (95% white) where the girls there would be beat on just as much for doing the same as these did.  Of course that neighborhood is filled with meth heads, junkies, welfare queens & just pure white trash.

It's economics not race that determines much of the police actions these days. Can daddy afford a lawyer is one of the first things that they ask themselves before the street justice comes into play

She was out after curfew, ran from police and resisted arrest.

Her mother should *also* be beaten for naming her daughter Merceedez.

Yeah man, curfew violation is serious business.  Running down teenagers, tackling, then beating them because they were lippy and ran is reasonable response from police.  Gotta show those kids who's boss.  Can't let them get away with being lippy and running.  No sir.  Breaking curfew is tantamount to murder, so actually they should have just shot her.

Fun fact, curfew violation is a misdemeanor, meaning cops likely couldn't even  arrest her for it. Legally the most they could give her is a ticket.

It may not be justified but the reality is that if you make the police chase you, they WILL beat on you a bit when they catch you.  If you start fighting back & hitting them at that point they will start going overboard in their enthusiasm to subdue you.  If she had just stood there being lippy, she may have pissed off the police but they wouldn't have (probably, you really can't tell with some of them) started beating on her (too many potential witnesses attracted by the noise).  She might have gotten a ticket for being outside 5 min after curfew (which a judge probably would have thrown out if she pressed the issue - 10pm is really early especially in the summer), but she wouldn't be sitting in the hospital right now.

But you already knew all of that....

Where I live in Baltimore there is a curfew. If there wasn't, we would have roaming gangs of teenagers out at all hours of the night.

We have that now, but without the curfew it would be worse. It would be like the Warriors movie.

Will and should are two completely different things.  God forbid police show restraint and forethought when doing their jobs.  Someone runs?  Beating the shiat out of them is the only way to respond.  Are they mouthing off?  Oh man, disrespecting me, beat the shiat out of them!  Yes, they ran.  Yes, they were lippy.  Last I checked, it's illegal for me to beat people when they get lippy with me.  Yet folks give the police a free pass.  These are teenagers doing what teenagers do.  Obviously the right response is to beat them.

I would like to point out that in your paragraph you failed to mention the fact that she resisted, and 99% of the time it's resisting that leads to the beating.

Oh go try trolling somewhere else.  I said that they police wouldn't beat on you (probably) for just being lippy.  And then there is your continued ignoring of the little fact that the girls were fighting with the police when caught.  Nope, it's all about giving the police free pass to beat on anyone whenever they feel like it.  It has absolutely nothing to do with the girls fighting with them, nope nothing at all....

When you run from cops...they chase you and tackle you!

When tackled by cops, you tend to get scuffed up some.

Did you somehow think they were playing "touch-apprehend"???
None of this shiat would have happened if she'd just gotten in the back of the car and got driven home.

2014-07-17 12:45:00 PM  
Looks like she had good reason to run from the cops - they're dangerous thugs with no self control and probably will not be held accountable for their actions.

If a suspect is unarmed and not fighting back and you put her in the hospital, you should be tried for assault - badge or no.
 
2014-07-17 12:45:02 PM  
It must be awful having to spell out your attractive and successful first name for everything. Or imagine being a teacher for an inner-city school: "Yunique, can you answer this question? No, not the Yunique with two E's. No, not you either, one that ends with a K."

What you "believe" and what is going to happen to you when you run from the police and then resist aren't even in the same universe, honey. But now you know.

Curfew violation: Reason to stop and talk to you
Running away from cops when they try to stop and talk to you: Reason to tackle you
Trying to free yourself from restraint after being tackled for running away from cops who have stopped to talk to you: A likely chance that cops will use too much force to subdue you.

I'm not saying she deserved the damage she received, but to argue she didn't deserve any of this over a curfew violation is disingenuous at best.  She received the damage she did for running and resisting.

It's only in the US, and doesn't exist in a few of the largest cities - NYC and Boston to name two.  San Francisco only applies it to people under 14 after 1am.

All the other countries in the world don't seem to feel the need for police to hassle people who are or might appear to be under 18 doing nothing else wrong.
