    The guy with the camera is a moron trying to add fuel to the fire.

    The windows were already broken by protesters.

    The police were busting out the windshield so they could safely drive the vehicle away without risk of the broken windshield injuring them.

    Leaving a damaged cruiser with all of the things commonly contained inside of it is a bad idea as we have already seen looters walking around with stolen ARs - taken from police vehicles.

    I agree 100% the guy is annoying. But with a broken windshield its best to kick it out from the inside. Other wise you get full of glass. But why would they stand on the hood and then hit the hood repeatedly?
    They officers are going through alot right now.

    Here's a video of what actually happened to that cruiser:
    https://mobile.twitter.com/Nelsonbar...17955429371904

    I'm going to speculate and take a guess of why they were hitting the window from the outside:
    1) The window was too caved in at parts and kicking it in from the inside with a foot was too dangerous. It was deemed easier to break the windshield safely from the exterior, then throw the glass in the back and sweep it off the dash and the seat, before driving away.

    2) The officers didn't consider getting inside the vehicle and kicking the windshield outwards because they had never been in this situation. As a disclaimer, I wouldn't have thought to do that either. If a bird or something caved my windshield in, I would have thought to hit it from the outside in and finish the job of the bird before grabbing it with gloves and (re)moving it.

    I watched the video three times and I don't see officers hitting anywhere else on the vehicle besides the windshield. It sucks that information like this is going around and painting a false narrative (fake news).

    Another big one that people have been sharing is that cops are "covering up their badge numbers" with black tape, so they cannot be identified. Yet, anyone who knows even a little about police work would know that this has been done for a long time as a method to honor a fallen officer, similar to lowering a flag to half mast.

    That explaines a lot. I knew someone would catch both sides.

    I would not suspect an officer would destroy his or her own patrol unit.

    Thank you

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Their to dumb to know a windshield is only sitting there glued in or in its rubber molding.

    You always remove an windshield from the inside by pushing it out with you're feet if nessary...

    No it's not.

    Edit: I originally made a comment about a paintball gun that wasn't completely correct. Editing to remove it out.

    There are reasons that paintballs could be employed to later identify people. Google for a bit more info.

    Maybe it didn't work? Either way, even if their method of removing the windshield is flawed, it doesn't give evidence that supports what the moron shouting into his phone is saying.

    Plus, how the hell does one record with such poor quality? Even the shittiest of phones nowadays record in at least 720p...
