Iraqi Police Brutality (Rodney King Style!)
"This occurred @ OP2 in Ramadi. At the time, we were providing overwatch for the police station. The IP's constructed a TCP and stopped a taxi. The occupants were forced out of the car then beaten and shot at. They were later released.

However, after they were released, we believe the IP's were attempting to intimidate the locals."
