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.

"Yeah, cause you only beat up black guys."

"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?"
