Last week a judge ordered the murder case of a BART cop shooting an unarmed man in the back to downtown Los Angeles. A YouTube video showing the incident was the leading factor community anger. Then over the weekend, another BART cop incident was caught and put on YouTube. Basically, it shows a cop pushing a drunk man against a window--unfortunately, he pushed him through the window. Did the cop have bad luck with a fragile window or was that too much aggression?
