Amshi points to a shocking act of police brutality

Arutz Sheva reports that the perpetrators will stand trial for their crime, which is wonderful. Still the unpleasent side of me is asking familiar, unpleasent questions:

1 - Would you be outranged if the same act of violence had been commited against an Arab? I would, I hope.

2 - Would a policeman be brought to trial as quickly had he brutalized an Arab demonstrator. I hope so, but I don't know.

3 - Is this an isolated incident, or is this sort of behavior endemic in the ranks of the Israeli police? Are other Jews being beaten by policemen? And if they are, shouldn't we assume that the same thing happens to Arabs?
