So no, I'm not surprised a lawsuit was filed over alleged brutality by enormously outnumbered Amherst police at the Blarney Blowout. But I am surprised it took this long.
After all, if it is such a strong case why wait almost one full year to file your complaint?
Rule #1: Hold your phone horizontally Rule #2: Leave when police ask
And I always thought lawyers were not supposed to try their case in the media? Here these legal beagles posted their "evidence" to the web for the entire world to see, and issued press releases no less.
Specifically timed of course to coincide with the upsurge in media interest as we approach the one year anniversary of that outrageous event.
Interesting how you can clearly see objects detonate near officers busy arresting someone on the ground. And I recognize that dull thud a full can of beer makes when it hits a nearby snowbank, as I had one miss my head by 6" the year before at Townhouse Apartments during the Blarney Blowout.
It's easy to look at a snippet of video and come up with ways you would have calmly handled the situation better. Hindsight is always a piece of cake.
Or maybe I should say, "keg of beer."
