University of Georgia Ninja Detained: More Questions than Answers
The photo you see here is from Red and Black.com an independent student newspaper from Georgia University. It is said to be taken by a cell phone camera and depicts an AFT agent pinning a University Student down.
Previously, I had written a short post how a student dressed as a Ninja was detained by the AFT. A person who commented on the post showed a link to this picture.
If you look carefully at the picture something appears screwy. Look at the legs of the AFT agent the one that is extended toward you appears distorted. Almost like a bad attempt at a photo-shopped picture.
Now, there are other clues that this may not appear as it seems. If you look at the people that are standing around at the scene everyone appears nonchanlant. If you were seeing an AFT agent pin down a suspect with what looks like the full weight of his body on the student's neck, would you not be paying close attention?
I have looked at this picture under higher magnification, and it appears to show signs of being photo-shopped, but then again it could just be a bad picture. What do you think?
The Forth amendment allows for an officer of the law to use reasonable force to subdue a suspect. So there are really two questions here. Does this picture depict what really happened? And is this a proper use of reasonable force?
