This week's episode of "Saturday Night Live" mocked and condemned police brutality with a sketch about Detective Blazer --  a white cop played by Taran Killam who goes out of his way to beat up exclusively black men.

"You see why I gotta fire you Blazer?" asks Beck Bennett as the police chief.

"Cause my partner filmed everything with his body cam?" Killam responds. "Also cause I edited it all together and added music and put it up on YouTube?"
