New York PD Vehicle hits protestors in a frightening display of eroding police public relations.
"I'm not going to blame officers who were trying to deal with an absolutely impossible situation. The folks who were converging on that police car did the wrong thing to begin with, and they created an untenable situation," he said. "I wish the officers had found a different approach, but let's begin at the beginning. The protesters in that video did the wrong thing to surround that police car, period."

I would want to ask here; does it really matter that the Citizens here were in the wrong? Is the capacity for civility slipping; because it sure looks like it might be. I'm not sure that less civility is something that we can really afford to see ourselves moving towards.
