The cops seem determined to prove the protesters right

So... the police department is admitting its officers committed a crime.

Why aren't the officers being charged? The police are not supposed to be a protection racket. An officer is not allowed to knife someone's tires just because he thinks they are anti-police. They don't get permission to commit whatever criminal act they want just because they have a badge.

The oddest thing about all this are the reactions from the police themselves to the protests. The protesters are marching because the police commit violence against the public (particularly the black public) and officers are not held into account for the criminal actions they commit. And the police's reaction is to commit more crime against the protesters and more impunity?
