I don’t have time to write a full article for this, so I’ll get right to the point: Does the following video resemble the America you knew growing up? Or does it look like something went terribly wrong instead?
And if you missed the first two challenges, I will link to them here (#1) and here (#2).
Okay, on to the video…
By the way, I want to emphasize that I’m not sharing this video with any intention of using it to demonize law enforcement. After all, I got the sense that at least some of the officers in this video were embarrassed and ashamed of what they were forced to do. Besides, what can one reasonably expect them to do? Be the hero that disobeys their orders and throws their career away over a lemonade stand? Hopefully they at least thought about it, but perhaps decided that the cause just wasn’t important enough.
However, I can’t speak for all of the officers since it appeared that some of them were enjoying themselves a little too much… that woman’s behavior specifically should give everyone the chills. Does it make you feel better knowing there are officers like that who mindlessly follow orders and abuse their authority no matter how absurd it looks? Nah, me neither… hey lady, don’t forget who you are supposed to be working for… and that’s we the people!
We are truly living in some crazy times… I’m just glad someone got this on video because I never would have believed this story without it!
