LAPD beating videos

William Cardenas was beaten savagely by LAPD while lying on the ground. Someone video’ed it. Now it’s on YouTube. And all over the media.

This happened Aug. 8 in Hollywood. On July 8 in Hollywood, LAPD savaagely beat two protestors at an anti-Minutemen counter-protest and we got it on video and posted it on YouTube.

Last night, after getting at least a dozen people subscribing to my YouTube videos in that day, I checked the stats for the July 8 beating video and it showed 37,000 viewings which was way up. A few hours later it was 82,000. This morning it’s a mind-boggling 132,000. People must be looking for the Aug. 8 video and finding this one too.

And why two beatings by Hollywood LAPD a month apart?

PS There are so many hits happening so fast on the videos now that depending on which way you view the link, YouTube gives a different number of total views. For example, one screen is currently showing 132,000 while another is at 83,000.

    […] One bit of good news is that this attack is casting renewed attention on police brutality. The taser attack is getting a lot of attention due to its unusual nature (taser abuse) and the circumstances (student at an elite institution instead of poor black man on a street corner), but it comes on the heels of two other LAPD police brutality videos that have been released lately. I think the attack has also helped liberals notice other police assaults (even though they happen a lot), like the recent one on striking janitors in Houston, where the strikers sat down in the middle of a street and the cops trampled them with their horses. With this kind of attention, probably a few of the most violent cops will get fired and some of the rest will be more restrained… for a little while. Posted by Jake on November 19, 2006 8:51 pm […]
