Cops can be assholes all day, same as anyone else. The problem is their legal status gives them cover and impunity and regular people get hurt all the time because of it.

Trying to defend any of this behavior for any reason only gets us more of the same.

I don't think anything I have said defends the cops actions, if I have, or even have not been clear on that I will stand corrected, but I did say the riders rights were violated.

The issue was and is the behavior of the cop, the new issue is the FAILURE of his superiors to hold him accountable. The only thing that seems to be changing these issues we see daily is public pressure. At this point the system has not worked. My point about the rider was not to suggest there was an excuse for the cops behavior, but I am asking how his and all of our conduct affects opinion and support for riders, and the eventual outcomes.

Like it or not public opinion is affecting things as serious as murder cases, again I believe LE waited 8 months for a reason, it happens all the time.

The suit has been settled for $65,000 and some promised changes to their use of force policies. I'm impressed that he pushed for policy changes instead of just taking money. We desperately need more citizens like him and fewer cops like Richard Rowe.

settlement agreement,

Edit: These comments on his video say quite a bit about Alex's character..

"..if we couldn't come to a deal, the only thing I would get out of them is money. And, policy was more important to me." Wow man. You're a better man than most.
Patasaurus Rex I think I’m just more privileged in the sense that I’m more patient, and more financially stable than many, which allows me to prioritize other things first.

I’m definitely not better.
