Alleged Police Brutality

I saw the video of Jonathan Baez crying out, helpless in handcuffs, his head smashed repeatedly into the pavement by someone who swore to protect us.

But we don’t need them behaving like this. And let me be clear - most of them don’t. But we can’t have even one officer behave like this.
