How to Treat Criminal Suspects; the Official Version

Donald Trump, speaking to police today:

 "When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in. Rough. I said, please don’t be too nice. Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head. You know, the way you put their hand over their head, like don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody. I said you could take the hand away, OK.”

This is one more of at least a hundred legitimate grounds for impeachment of this grotesque excuse for a human being, and not one of the lesser ones, as behavior like this, licensed by the state, is one of the surest paths to fascism that anyone could imagine.

And when the country finally comes to its sense and drags this hateful man out of the White House, I only ask one thing: Do it rough.  Please don't be too nice.  It's the way he wants our country to treat criminal suspects.
