We have all seen the sickening video. Black-uniformed, heavily-armed officers of the law, all of them white, sadistically and repeatedly club and kick a helpless, unarmed black male who writhes on the ground in pain. Numerous other officers of the law stand by and watch, doing nothing to stop the obviously cruel, illegal, and horrifying brutality of their fellow officers.
