The Baltimore Sun reported that Warren Brown, the attorney for the man who was punched, previously identified the officer as Arthur Williams, who had been an officer since last year.

A video surfaced over the weekend showing an officer confronting a man before repeatedly punching him. In the video, the man then falls onto a set of stairs, where the police officer continued to strike him. Brown, the attorney, identified the man being hit as Dashawn McGrier, 26.

Brown told The Baltimore Sun that McGrier had a run-in in June with the same officer who beat him.

“It seems like this officer had just decided that Dashawn was going to be his punching bag,” Brown said. “And this was a brutal attack that was degrading and demeaning to my client, to that community, and to the police department.”

I think that the victim, Dashawn McGrier, showed amazing restraint by keeping his hands down while being punched repeatedly.

Of course, if he had not he probably would have been shot dead.

Later the Baltimore Police Department issued this tweet:

Just another reminder of why football players are kneeling during the National Anthem. 

It is not to show disrespect to the troops, it’s to show solidarity with victims of police brutality like Dashawn McGrier.

    Kobach won the Kansas primary by 345 votes. No fraud here. Nope. These aren’t the votes you’re looking for. Move along now.

    Like, maybe, look at those signatures in Virginia.

    “The Buzans asked for one year paid service for them and Almitra’s mother, new phones and — at the suggestion of law enforcement officers they had spoken with — an identify-theft protection plan.

    Too much, Sprint told them.

    “We have reviewed your concerns with our Legal and Office of Privacy,” wrote Richard Layne, a Sprint executive and regulatory services supervisor on July 8. His “best and final offer” was a one-time credit of $532 to pay off the leases on their two phones, and he would make the couple eligible for two new phones.

    “This had been such a disruption to our lives,” Almitra says. “There has been an emotional scar. And even if they would have said OK six months (paid service) and identity theft protection or if they had just acted quickly, we would have been happy. But it’s been six weeks.”

    Lisa Belot, a communications manager for Sprint, says that the company tries to treat every complaint or question as quickly as possible and that she thought, “to the best of my knowledge,” that Sprint had handled the Buzans’ situation as best it could.

    “I can’t speak to how decisions were made and can’t offer details about what we did offer her,” Belot says. “However there were products and services offered that WE FELT were satisfactory.”

    “NOW he hopes that the grand jury’s damning report will expose the actions the church took to cover up abuse and that the report will help prevent other children from getting hurt.
    “Let’s expose this, and let’s get this taken care of. Let’s get them away. Let’s protect,” Rowan told the station. “It’s what we have to do for our children and for our grandchildren.”
    ” it was time for Catholics to “wake up and hold church officials accountable.” “Believe victims when they come forward, and never tell them to ‘get over it,’””
    “You did this damage. You’re the ones who caused this mess. NOW make it right.”

    Kudos for putting that other office on administrative leave. Maybe he should be working in a kindergarten, he didn’t seem like he had a clue about what to do or how to behave or the difference between right and wrong. No PD can support drones.
