Loyd declared that many of the accusations against him are “made up,” and said he was brutalized by officers after an intense, nine-day manhunt. “They done took my eye, broke my nose, broke my jaw,” Loyd complained. “I didn’t resist.”
Many of you reading this may be wondering if I condone the violence that took place, on either side. The answer is no. If it turns out that Loyd is guilty, then I do not condone his actions at all. In fact, it’s inhuman. On the flip side, I do not condone what the police did either. Beating a man so severely that he more than likely will lose an eye, broke his jaw, broke his nose, inflicted numerous lacerations and bruises, and the list goes on and on. That too, in my humble opinion, is barbaric in nature.
