Sounds like King Jones is taking lessons from Bloomers in NYC on how to violate the citizens of Richmond's rights under the Constitution.

I hope he does sue and wins big $$$ from the city.

I saw the whole video of the event. The young man was drunk, but the officer overreacted and was totally in the wrong in his handling of the situation. I don't believe race has anything to do with it, but the officer was wrong to have gotten out of control.
