I was asked by a commenter why I don't believe the rave raid abuse allegations will go anywhere. First, the much vaunted video tape shows no abuse. There are people on the ground, but that's standard arrest procedure. There is no evidence of abuse on the tape. Second, there are accounts of savage beatings and dog maulings, but so far no injuries have surfaced beyond bruises that can easily be attributed to being thrown to the ground and handcuffed. Rough handling by the police during arrest is not new and not an abuse.
