A new video has surfaced showing protesters stopping traffic on a major roadway. When the State Police arrive on scene, they begin to remove the protesters from the road. One man, who is still unidentified at the time of this posting, tried to run away from police. However, it wasn’t long before a State Trooper grabbed the man from behind, and then body-slammed him into the pavement.
This article isn’t here to debate the protests, or the protesters, but it is here to comment on the way Police handle those situations. It wasn’t that long ago that police killed another man by doing the same exact thing. There is a right way and a wrong way to handle anything, and why the police’s first instinct is to resort to violence, is beyond explanation.
