    I saw this article and this is some fucked up shit right here.

    “A Blue Island police officer will not face criminal charges in the death last fall of an elderly Hispanic man who was tackled when he was mistaken for a graffiti suspect, authorities said Monday.

    There was “insufficient evidence to charge in this tragedy,” said John Gorman, a spokesman for the Cook County state’s attorney.

    Still, the county medical examiner ruled the death a homicide Monday, saying Antonio Manrique, 74, would not have died had he not been hurt in the scuffle with police.

    Chief Medical Examiner Edmund Donoghue said Manrique, who suffered broken ribs, cuts and bruises, died as a result of blood clots that formed in his legs and traveled to his heart and lungs. Those clots were the result of Manrique being tackled, he said.

    “It started because of trauma, when he was thrown down on the ground by the police,” Donoghue said.”

    i'm going to mistake a cop for a drug dealer and make a citizen's arrest by tackling him, and we'll see if i get charges pressed against me.

    yup. thats how the American Police like to work. Goddamn I hate the cops in the united states, always trying to be the fuckin hero. Making the city a better place to live in my ass.

    How does some dumb cop do that anyway? Shouldnt he have identified himself first? I doubt the old man was moving very fast. And yes the police are the largest most violently corrupt gang of thugs to ever walk the street. You never know if one is a decent human being looking out for you or if they are just trying to toss you in the pen to meet thier quota..

    in miami i saw on the news that this veteran from desert storm who had a badly crippled arm was beat by cops then his arm was pulled behind his back, cuffed, and he thrown on the floor. they clubbed him again because they claimed he was resisting arrest. guess why they raided his house...
