Alas, No : Funny definition of government oppression you've got there…

From the NYT, on the Brelo acquittal in Cleveland:

Patrick A. D’Angelo, one of Officer Brelo’s lawyers, said his team was “elated” with the verdict, and he blamed an “oppressive government” for bringing the charges. “We stood tall; we stood firm,” Mr. D’Angelo said, “because we didn’t do anything illegal. We didn’t do anything wrong.”

So, a cop unloads 49 shots at unarmed people in a car, but it is the police who have been the victims of an oppressive government. Meanwhile, police unilaterally declare curfews and go after peaceful protesters (and anyone else taking the radical action of standing around outside).

That's rich.
