    As 2014 draws to a close, we can’t help but conclude that cops looked pretty bad this year. With the nation struggling to reconcile a lack of indictment for the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo., or the strangling death of Eric Garner by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo, arguments about militarized law enforcement and structural racial bias in the justice system reached a fever pitch. But Brown’s death wasn’t caught on video, which left the door open for doubt, theory, and epistemological evasion.

    Over the past few months, however, many other unarmed civilians have been brutalized or even killed by police while a bystander or security camera recorded the entire incident. In these cases, it is often more difficult to argue that cops acted reasonably and within protocol. Taken together, these videos create a dark picture of the times we live in—one that must be confronted. Take heed, however: These images are disturbing, and not for the faint of heart.

    Police brutality has not gone viral.

    Accusations of racism against police has gone viral.

    The people complaining the loudest couldn't care less if a policeman kills a white person, accidentally or on purpose.
