Remember David Silva who was beaten to death by Kern County sheriff deputies in Bakersfield, California in May 2013? After they murdered him, the cops confiscated the cell phones of eye witnesses to prevent the evidence of what really happened from being seen. Later on, after the cell phones had been in their custody for some time, they released this video, apparently to make it look as though the beating wasn’t all that bad (nevermind the fact that the guy died, they beat him so bad).
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that after careful review of videos in each cell phone, the cops selected one that showed their abuse of power the least and truncated it by removing the part showing the actual murder before releasing it. I mean comon – they beat David Silva to death. Do they really want me to believe that there was nothing more to their conduct than what’s shown in this video?
Am I the only one who notices the alarming spike in cases of cop on civilian violence? Could it be that people with power to initiate force shape police to comply with the use of deadly force against civilians so they don’t second guess about killing the very people they swore to protect when ordered to do so?
