Another troubling sign that the U.S. is moving towards a Police State

6 Police officers in Fullerton, CA beat a schizophrenic man to death after he fled during questioning. The officers are currently on paid administrative leave.

I am glad the people of Fullerton are trying to hold these officers accountable. A badge does not make you above the law. We want our police to serve and protect, not engage in mob behavior whenever a suspect upsets them. It seems like there is a story about police officers killing someone every month. Why do we keep letting this happen?
