    Nothing has changed since that video was released. The jury found all cops not guilty of police brutality. When I first saw that video thirty years ago, I knew it was brutal to witness a human being being beaten for reasons I could not comprehend at that time. To me it clearly showed that he wasn’t resisting. To me it showed that he was trying to evade the brutal punishment that was being set upon him! All the cops were white and he was black and unarmed being pummeled with night sticks! If he were a smaller man they would have killed him!

    I remember the killing of a young girl around the same time by a Korean shopkeeper, she got away with murder by a racist judge

    I hope black people and all people of this country don't let this racism get away this time. Give them something to remember until the end of this world.
