I think Andre Branca is drunk on boot polish.
Assuming the attempt to arrest was lawful, at what moment in this video did #TyreNichols comply or was effectively forced to comply with lawful arrest?
I can't tell.
But until that moment the police are privileged to use force to compel compliance with lawful arrest. https://t.co/I1CIOMuGNX

“The law says you can’t resist and run away from the police who are beating you to death for fun because trying to save your own life is resisting, which justifies beating you to death.”
Five cops vs one unarmed man trying to field goal kick hid head off isn’t trying to force compliance, that’s murder.

Cops have the authority to use force to control you, but 5 armed assholes beating one guy laying on the ground is not authorized. Holding a limp rag up so other assholes can hit/pepper spray/kick, is not authorized. IMHO, it was 1st degree murder.
I have lost my confidence in Branca’s analyses. Too bad.
