Man Charged For Covering Head During Police Beating, VIDEO LINKS INLCUDED

Unfortunately, one of the most common things the cops do, with the "in-justice" system's complicity, is beat someone up. Then whether the victim moves, covers his head, or even just takes the beating without doing a thing, the cops say the victim is RESISTING!   --Redwood Curtain CopWatch

GMatamoros Man charged for covering head during police beating

A Miami man whose beating at the hands of police was captured on cell phone video has been charged with resisting arrest without violence, a charge his lawyer says came from nothing more than the man's attempts to cover his head from the blows.

"The Mehserle Trial" , from Mumia Abu-Jamal July 10, 2010

   The manslaughter verdict returned against former BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) cop, Johannes Mehserle, for the videotaped murder of Oscar Grant, sent hundreds of protesters back into the hot streets of Oakland, California, Grant's hometown.

   The corporate media scratched its collective head, essentially asking 'Why protest when the guy was convicted?"

   The protesters knew, however, that the court system bent heaven and earth to return the lightest verdict possible; involuntary manslaughter' and that Mehserle faces a possible sentence of probation to a maximum of 4 years in prison.

   They knew that Mehserle got a non black jury, hundreds of miles from Oakland.

   They knew that each of those hundreds could've been Oscar Grant, unarmed, shot to death on tape and the same thing would've happened.

   Of course, the corporate media doesn't get it.
