Three law enforcement criminals have only been suspended but not arrested, over a violent arrest caught on camera

It is not clear why American citizens pull out cameras instead of weapons to neutralize criminal police officers. The Constitution allows them to do so; natural justice requires them to do so. Not to kill the officers, but to arrest them as every citizen has the right and obligation to do in such circumstances. Just as as they should have in the George Floyd case.
After all, it should be clear to everyone that as long as those in charge of law enforcement continue to cover up criminals in uniform who murder and use illegal violence against civilians, the violence and killing of innocent citizens by criminal officers will continue.

America's founding fathers foresaw this, which is why they allowed citizens to bear arms. Not to oppose some imaginary invading army, but for their citizens' self-defense against governmental violence.

In a true democracy, the citizens would have jumped on the violent policemen, saved the hapless victim, and thrown the uniformed criminals into the nearest jail. Because that is where they should be kept until their investigation and trial are over. While due process is taking its course, these allegedly-guilty-by-video miscreants should not be allowed back on the streets: their only appropriate place is in jail, as the first and necessary step for real and not fake due process.

Of course, It is important to protect police officers from violence by the citizens. But it is equally and no less important to protect citizens from violence by the police.

However, the belief that police officers deserve more protection from citizens than do the citizens who pay their salaries is the belief of a totalitarian regime, not of a democracy.

The rule of law must be upheld. But it must lead by example.

When the example that the rule of law gives, again and again, is of violence against citizens, one should not be surprised by the tragic outcomes. Not by events such as the January 6th Capitol invasion, nor when psychopaths shoot innocent people inside schools and shopping malls.

The behavior of citizens will never be better than the behavior of the corrupt government that purportedly serves them. Nor of the out-of-control police force that purportedly protects them

A country needs a strong police force, not a violent police force. A violent policeman is like a man who beats his wife. It's not a sign of his strength or unquestionable authority; it's a sign of his weakness and mental illness.

We should send to prison for many years anyone who was involved in the recruiting, training and commanding of these 3 vicious, violent policemen. The 3 policemen are themselves outlaws, and should be treated as such. We should confiscate their property and savings, and credit it to their victim's bank account as some small recompense.

Do this once. Get rid of the problem forever.

This is not a call to fight the police, God forbid. This is a call to give our unqualified support to the overwhelming majority of decent police officers who do such an important job for all of us. We need to throw out of the barrel the few rotten apples that taint the rest of it; the poisonous ones that damage the image and respect the majority of police officers definitely deserve. in truth, we need to protect our policemen by cleaning the poison out of their members. So they can continue to serve, and protect, us.
