To Serve and Protect

Great outraged rant from MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnel on police brutality at Occupy Wall Street - and, in fact, every day across America, from the beating of Rodney King to Anthony Bologna's pepper-spray attack. Police do it, he says, "because they know they can." He challenges police "investigators" to say it ain't so, and do something about it. Terrific.
