This video, by a guy who is only identified as “Green,” speaks pretty much for itself.
As regular readers will recognize, the themes in the video have been subject to many posts at SJ, and you don’t need to read them again. If you feel the need to discuss them, point them out, that’s fine, but I have nothing to add that hasn’t been said before.
A search for more information about this incident revealed nothing. But for Mr. Green, who has no warrants despite being black, no one would have known that this manly deputy punched a special needs woman in the face while his enabling deputy held her.
Sure, it could be argued that Mr. Green could have jumped up and rushed to the woman’s defense, but don’t be greedy about what a good person should do. He video-taped the punch, he refused to give it up to the cop despite being threatened, and he came forward with it afterward.
Happy Veteran’s Day, Mr. Green. Thank you for your service.
