[video] Mob of Philly cops assault man holding baby for not paying his $2.25 fare

Police brutality and abuse of power against black people is one of our foremost problems in this country and around the world. Will it take all out anarchy for this madness to stop? Not even an infant child could make these pigs handle this situation any different.

So, this is the bullshit my son witnessed yesterday coming home from work. Dude’s crime? Not paying the $2.25 fare. Look at how small and scared his daughter is, and how he is treated by Septa & Philadelphia police, over $2.25!!! I thought Septa had a policy of allowing fareless riders the courtesy? I wish they would put hands on me while holding my kids!!! This police ‘entitlement’ mentality, which often leads to brutality, has got to stop!

For several minutes after the shooting, Walter L. Scott remained face down with his hands cuffed behind his back.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man, Walter L. Scott, 50, fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.
