Kentucky Man Beat to a Pulp by Kentucky State Police

Here are the excuses the Kentucky State Police are slinging about, this doesn't scan, he never deserved to receive a beating like this. The police chase never broke the speed limit by the way. 

http://www.kentucky.com/2015/04/06/3786542/knox-man-arrested-on-numerous.html

I implore you to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 10 in Harlan County, yes that Harlan County, and ask them why they beat the hell out of this guy. 

Plus they are trying to shut it up by giving him a sweet plea deal.

This ranks up there with Sen. Ted Stevens' idiotic "series of tubes" rant from 2006. Yet another example of an elected representative who has sold out the interests of his constituents to serve the interests cable companies. He doesn't seem to understand the most basic tenets of the Net Neutrality ruling, which protects the communications rights of all Internet users.

I don't agree that big money won on this one, Cenk. Not at all. The big companies that have supported Net Neutrality in the past (including Google and Amazon) were largely absent during the debate this time around. This was a genuine victory of organizing (from the grassroots to the White House and many points in between) over organized money. That's why it's so remarkable.

Building an Internet Movement from the Bottom-Up
In the early days of the Arab Spring, Wael Ghonim declared, “If you want to liberate a society, just give them the Internet.” In retrospect Ghonim, a well-known Egyptian activist at the center of Cairo protests, should not have stopped there. Just giving a ...
