Mostly unrelated to your post, but rollergirl relevant - any chance you have any information on the rollergirl purportedly beaten to a bloody pulp by police officers in Deep Ellum this Friday? I came across pictures of the incident here:

I then found your blog while googling to see if I could find out anything else. There doesn't seem to be any press on this, and I'm still unclear on exactly what happened, except there does appear to be excessive force and there's sure as hell a lot of blood on the girl's face. Seems like something the press ought to be hopping on, neh?

It's not really clear what happened, but this is what I've heard so far...

Muff Thumper from Assassination City was skating down the street handing out flyers. A cop pulled her over to give her a ticket. A crowd stared to gather and more police were called in. What I hear is that she got distracted and took her hands off of the police car. The cop got pissed, she got an attitude...

She had to get stiches and spent the day in jail, but other than that, she seems to be ok.

The incident was totally senseless and unnecessary, there were plenty of witnesses, and there most likely will be legal action taken. (Rollergirls from across the country are already talking about a legal fund.)

Hey, I watched this happen from Cafe Brazil, I had a very clear view of what happened. I'm not a big fan of the Police AT all, and I totally symptahize with the girl. But what I saw was the girl giving a hard time with the cop for the Jaywalking, and tried to swing at him. It hit the cop, and he did what he's probably trained to do and restrained her by holding her arms and pushing her against the hood of the car. He wasn't holding very tight, because she got out and fell over. She went after the cop again, and this time he had to slam her against the hood.

I remember being mad at the cop because the girl was really hot and that just shouldn't happen. But I really understand his situation, he's got a really hard job and did exactly what he would do to any thug who tried to swing at him. I hope this doesn't ruin his record.
