I THINK THEIR BEST DEFENSE IS THAT THEY AREN’T RACIST, THEY’RE JUST FASCIST: Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Commission Police Leave Student Bloodied, Beaten.
A University of Virginia student’s bloody arrest has sparked a massive protest and led Gov. Terry McAuliffe to call for an investigation.
A video showing the bloody arrest of a black UVA undergraduate Martese Johnson sparked hundreds of students to protest against police brutality Wednesday night.
Johnson, 20, joined the demonstration, sporting 10 fresh stitches in his head from the violent takedown early that morning outside a Charlottesville pub.
Footage from the arrest, showing a cop pinning the Honor Committee student against the street and blood covering his face, outraged classmates and spurred McAuliffe to call for an independent probe of the arresting agency.
UVA was quick to challenge authorities for actions taken during Johnson’s arrest. He was pinched for public intoxication and obstruction of justice about 1 a.m. Wednesday.
After all, the same outfit aimed guns at a white coed who had a case of spring water that they thought was beer.
Best question: Why does Virginia have an Alcoholic Beverage Commission with armed police? And for those of you who want more government — this is what “more government” looks like.
On the other hand, the Daily News doesn’t cover itself with glory here:
More recently, members of a University of Virginia fraternity Phi Kappa Psi were accused in a report by Rolling Stone of gang-raping a female student. The magazine admitted after national scrutiny that major portions of its story were inaccurate.
Really? “Major portions?” Like, the part that came after the byline. . . .
