Think You Want to File A Police Complaint? Better Think Again.

Abby Zimet

Filmed with a hidden camera, a 10-minute video montage of a guy trying to file a police complaint. He asks, entirely reasonably, for a form. In response, invariably belligerent police hassle him, harass him, threaten him with arrest, order him to leave the station, order him to leave the city, ask if someone slept with his wife, show him their gun, and hassle him again. Apologies: can't find the source. But it sure looks legit, and infuriating.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
