Last Night in New York

I've seen a number of video versions of what happened to Cecily McMillen when she had an epileptic seizure after being arrested and placed on a transit bus. But this one is easily the most disgusting and horrifying of any I've seen so far.

It's not so much the gross indifference of the police to the plight of their prisoner nor is it the outrage of the witnesses, it is that they do these things deliberately with a great deal of malice aforethought, for the strategic purpose of intimidating witnesses and suppressing dissent.

They want to be seen behaving in just as thuggish a manner as you see here.

They want you to see it in order to scare the crap out of you.

Is it working?
