I came back home from Iraq and 2 week later I was walking down my own street when a squad car pulled up and 2 cops got out. I got punched in the face, drug out into the street and tasored before being thrown in the back of a police car and taken to the station. Turns out they wanted to charge me with striking an officer and running a month ago when I wasn’t even in the country......When that didn’t hold up because my alibi being the USMC, they charged me with failure to obey and resisting arrest, all to justify why they had to beat me up
That’s just my personal worst experience with police. Keep in mind I’ve lived in Baltimore all my life, suposidely the most dangerous city in America and I’ve deployed to a war zone 3 times yet the only time I’ve had a gun pointed in my face was at the hands of a police officer.
They ride around our communities as if they are a foreign army occupying territory, treating the entire community as threats.
