The click bait title is the first sign that this so-called journalist’s article is completely off base. First of all, 14 officers did not take down one man. Only 4 officers were restraining the man that was clearly resisting. The other 10 were there for crowd control because ill-informed bystanders, cell-phone video “journalists” and the like tend to escalate these types of incidences unnecessarily. I watched the full 11 minute video. There are so many holes this this so-called journalist’s article. First of all, she exposes her bias by calling the cops “pigs”. Real journalists try to be as objective as possible and gather all of the facts. “14 officers take down homeless man” — False, as explained above. “They literally stomped on his prosthetic leg” — False, there was no stomping — an officer stepped on his leg and held down his prosthetic leg to restrain them, because he was kicking the officers. “Man-handling of his head” — False, the officer restrained his head because he was trying to bite his leg. This woman is just exploiting what happened to further her own agenda. This isn’t real journalism. This is misleading and full of lies and exaggerations.
