How stupid are cops?

You might think that after the Rodney King case way back in 1991 cops would be more careful about beating and/or killing people. The guy who made the Rodney King video was using an old-fashioned video camera. Except for a minority of techno-fogies like me, almost everyone now carries a device that can take pictures and videos.

The bullies/assholes in the above video must assume that the helicopter hovering above their cop riot and beat-down is recording what they're doing. 

Note the asshole in the white shirt who arrives late but still gets in some licks on the defenseless perp. Note too that the woman narrating the early part of the video shuts up when the beating begins. 

The cops---I count at least eleven---are clearly unconcerned, probably because they know they'll get away with it.

Later: The county quickly awarded the perp $650,000 to avoid litigation it would surely lose.

Cops are stupid - and you want to give them more power with a mandatory helmet law that will be used as a pretext?

Actually, I didn't support the mandatory helmet law, though I wrote about it. What interests me is how much in denial about the real dangers in riding a bike advocates are.
