The May 2019 beating following a traffic stop left him with a broken jaw, three broken ribs, a broken wrist and a gash to his head that required six staples to close.
Even if we were to pretend that pain compliance is a thing (which it very clearly isn't), this sure as hell would not fit any remotely reasonable definition. That he has attempted to defend his actions as "pain compliance" reveals how truly evil he is, and anyone attempting to defend him needs to be permanently removed from public service.
Bowman’s beating was carried out by Jacob Brown, a white trooper who, before resigning in March, tallied 23 use-of-force incidents dating to 2015 — 19 of them targeting Black people, according to state police records.
Aside from the federal investigation, Brown faces state charges of second-degree battery and malfeasance in Bowman’s beating. He also faces state charges in two other violent arrests of Black motorists, including one he boasted about last year in a group chat with other troopers, saying the suspect is “gonna be sore” and “it warms my heart knowing we could educate that young man.”
Then I end up in debates on Reddit and get told that racism isn't a thing anymore.
