Get ready for an excellent video on police brutality, but this time from Spain. It appears that the powers that be use the same methods everywhere. One can imagine that because of Spain’s bloody past, think Conquistadors and Franco wars, they would possibly would make the best sadistic police officers, and the most vicious torturers. Perhaps it’s embedded in their DNA.
From this excellent five-minute video, you can almost see on the horizon where the USA is going, if the present trend of police brutality continues to increase. Disgraceful.
I should call this:
“Psst, wanna see some cowardly Spanish coppers?”
Good article on issue underneath the video.
Spain Police Beating Everyone: A Warning To America

Spain Tortures. Amnesty International backs this claim with facts, figures and prisoners’ horrible experiences that will truly shock you.
In the last 10 years, the Committee for the Prevention of Torture has collected 6,621 complaints of torture committed by the Spain police. The figure contrasts with the low number of convictions handed down by the courts – 752 to be precise.
“The practice of torture is an everyday reality in Spain. Day after day we receive information from people who have suffered all kinds of abuse and torture from stress positions, to push-ups, rape or physical assault,” complains Jorge del Cura, spokesman for the Committee for the Prevention of Torture.
According to Pau Perez, adviser to the National Mechanism for Prevention of Torture and expert in national and international courts for victims of abuse and torture, every police force in Spain has elite units formed for to torture. “The intimidating torture of immigrants, the torture of militant social movements is physical but plays more with fear, threats, and terror. Fear of pain is more devastating than the pain,” feels Perez.
