Viral video shows Rhode Island cop brutally assaulting black man during arrest

A video clip has gone viral of the Rhode Island policeman who brutally assaulted a black man in April 2019. The video, which reveals the scale of violence, shows Providence cop Joseph Hanley dragging Rishod Gore from his car, kneeling on his neck and thrashing him while responding to a domestic dispute involving a different man. Hanley was charged for the assault and the case is still pending.

It would be nice if the media would show the brutality non-blacks experience, too. Just for something different every once in a while.

"The executive director of PERA, Jose Batista, published the videos himself, noting that his own board had voted against their release to the public. City and state officials also opposed the move, according to WJAR.  But Batista, who was elected to Rhode Island House of Representatives last week, said he felt that the public needed to see the videos, even if it could lead to his firing. 'I had positive and productive working relationships with almost everybody on the [PERA] board. But the more I advocated the release of this video, the worse those relationships began to deteriorate,' Batista said at a press conference on Tuesday. 'That is something that I think is unfortunate. And the people have a right to know how they are being policed and what happens as a consequence.' " Meh, sounds like selfish politics. The guy releases a video to a case that was already being taken care of in the courts, just one week after becoming a politician. Not to mention, playing up that he has the moral high ground over his colleagues, when his actions are the most likely to cause further harm in the future due to potential civil unrest and distrust of law enforcement.
