The most famous incident in American history of police brutality against African-Americans is the Rodney King beating, which did not involve a single shot being fired.

I do get what you're saying, that the story is pulling its punches in not having the Americops actually shooting anyone, but to say that the cops "only" physically beating people makes it not about police brutality... that's one of the most pernicious forms of police brutality!
