Brutal Scene: NYPD cop beating an unarmed black man while another officer stands by and does nothing.

(ht Michael Edelstein)


  1. Wenzel, we must not be looking at the same picture - that black man has arms!

  2. Judging from all the white pieces sitting on the side of the board, I'd hardly say the cop is 'beating' him.

  3. I dunno, I see more black pieces on that board than white. You're so racist.

  4. Check the board carefully. It appears that black has many more pieces on the board. Unable to tell who is really beating the other one, but by piece count the black side is ahead. :)

    1. I would say the cop, presumably playing white is losing. Either his king is on the run or his queen is surrounded. Hard to tell which one it is in the photo, I would guess the former. Neither is good.

      IME people who play chess everyday in public places tend to be very good at it.
