Cops cause Sacto melee

Bad cop stories have been filling the news lately, but this videotaped melee of off-duty cops causing a melee at a Sacramento Radisson boxing match is particularly shocking, because so many cops and their family members and friends willingly took part in this.

Don’t expect any punishments or anything. The Brotherhood protects its own. But keep this in mind when police present themselves as de facto heroes. This sort of thing is not uncommon.
