Continuity mistake: In the big fight scene, Roddy Piper and Keith David are wrestling and struggling about and land so the black guy's pants are getting soaking wet. In the very next shot as the fight continues, his pants are dry. (00:58:55)

Question: Why did all the police officers destroy the shantytown? And why did they beat the blind priest to death?

Answer: As part of the alien takeover, they're suppressing any resistance and discussion of the plot. They know there's a group, led by the preacher, who are onto the conspiracy and that they're somewhere in the camp. They destroy the camp to disburse them and prevent word from getting out.
