I witnessed this incident with my own eyes. Just as this author writes so eloquently, it was an absurd, disturbing, and ultimately quotidian example of police brutality. But I will say this for humanity: I also witnessed a large crowd of people whipping out their smartphones, filming the incident, questioning the officers, and refusing to leave. LaBouvier is right, there is plenty we can do. I could have done more. I will do more.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
