Business owners want officer reinstated.

Remember the Baltimore cop awhile back who got filmed abusing a teenager who was skateboarding in the inner harbor of Baltimore? Well, business owners want him reinstated.

He had every right to yell at the kids to stop. He had every right to call their parents. He still didn't have any right to body-slam somebody half his size. Police officers are taught equal force, but this officer obviously didn't get the fucking memo. I know Julia and Empyrean would agree on this.
