  1. There's been a protest ongoing in Ferguson for weeks. No burning trash cans == ZERO media attention.
  2. I remember one of Burman's on going (and on and on) bits of schtick was "LOOK AT THAT LITTLE MEGGETT RUN!" Which was a play on one of Howard Cosell's darker moments.
  3. Pressure their employers to fire them. For one.
  4. It's not about him thinking it's important. It's about him ####### with ppl who don't. Because you can't. do. that.
  5. Bennett's statement is evidence.
  6. We have tons and tons and tons of evidence that police routinely behave exactly as Bennett describes. To put the police in the best light, it was a tense, possibly lethal situation, and this behavior is how they subdue people. It's just how they do it. I have more sympathy for the cop in the moment than I do for the department trying to play their ham-fisted, cover your backside PR game.
  7. I believe officer attitudes can change when they realize they're not dealing with a nobody, yeah.
  8. Among the videos shown by Lombardo was Bennett being taken to a police car after he was handcuffed: The next video showed Bennett talking with officers saying he didn't do anything and asking for an explanation behind his detention: Another video showed an officer apologizing to Bennett: There was no video of Bennett's detention as Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Jay Rivera said the officer forgot to turn his body cam on prior to responding to what was falsely reported as a shooting, per Shoro.
  9. You haven't seen video of the actual arrest. It has not been shown. Plus it's great that LVPD tried to get Goodell to go after Bennett: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-rejects-las-vegas-police-union-request-wont-investigate-michael-bennett/ (unrelated autoplaying video on that link, sorry)
  10. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2735952-lvmpd-body-cam-footage-in-michael-bennett-incident-released "There was no video of Bennett's detention as Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Jay Rivera said the officer forgot to turn his body cam on prior to responding to what was falsely reported as a shooting, per Shoro."
  11. Edited video. Cop involved didn't have his body cam on (as always). Same old same old.
  12. Something new happen? All I know is the LVPD contradicted Bennett, which, in case you haven't noticed false statements by police are part of the issue.
