    Santa Clara PD attacks Pac 12 fan. No word of Grand Jury investigation yet.


    49er stadium seems to be off to a bad start. It's one incident after another.

    The product on the field, and the field itself, isn't much better. Don't know what led to the thing, but the guy seemed more than willing to be cuffed, yet they seemed intent on taking him down to the ground? Weird. Bad policing is bad policing.

    A police riot. Inexcusable. I guess it's legal for police to assault people. That guy was not resisting.

    There's going to come a tipping point where people aren't going to allow themselves to be policed in this manner anymore. Frankly, the officers are lucky that the crowd didn't get surly. There were a lot more fans than cops there.

    No doubt. The police mugged this guy. And crowd was very upset.

    Other than the several people yelling at the cops to stop and the Deadspin article, nobody cares.

    Just wait until Harbaugh leaves.

    No kidding.

    The Raiders with Harbaugh will win more games next season than the Niners if the franchise is stupid enough to promote from within.

    Can't wait to hear the police apologists tell us why this one was entirely reasonable and necessary. Not sure if cops are actually doing this shit more frequently, or if social media just enables us to see it more, but seems like there's a damn near daily "cops gone wild" story nowadays.

    I'm convinced part of the problem is that the profession, by nature, just seems to attract a disproportionate number of assholes.
