I have just watched a number of youtube clips on police assaulting people for doing absolutly nothing. In the UK this rarely happens but in America it seems a frequent occurance. Why are they sor brutal?

I'd rather they are sometimes excessive than do nothing, like in my home country, where you see 4 cops at a bar drinking some coffee or watching the soccer game.
It's true that some American cops are too excessive, some have reasons, other don't. Some think that because they're the authority they have the right to do whatever they want to you, but that's just a few cases, but no one talks about the good cops because that doesn't bring drama, and people like drama.
Would you watch a video of a cop that's peacefully talking to a citizen to move away, or would you rather watch a video of a cop that's using excessive force on someone?
We only talk about what brings drama, and that gives a bad image to the rest of the cops that do a great job at it.0
