I don’t know the extenuating circumstances but that kick to the chest was unwarranted and flat out wrong. That officer needs to be severely disciplined if not out right fired. I’ve never had a problem with cops and all my dealings with them have been great but I’m seeing way, way, way too many instances like this. In just this last week I’ve seen two women brutalized by cops. One lady was slammed against her car so hard you could see her head bounce back off the car from the force of the slam. The other one got body slammed to the ground TWICE. Neither of them offered any sort of resistance to even remotely warrant that type of treatment. What worries me the most are the cases of botched no-knocks on the wrong doors that end up with innocent pets and people being gunned down.

I don’t know if it’s a culture shift in law enforcement or it’s always been this way and they’re now getting caught more often because the proliferation of cameras. Either way law enforcement as a whole needs to do some serious housekeeping and take on a hard line preventative attitude. I still have plenty of faith in my local PD but can’t deny these cases will be in the back of my head next time I deal with them and that’s a shame.

BFD. If that mope would’ve followed commands, he wouldn’t have gotten sprayed or kicked. He was actively resisting arrest.

Do what you’re told. If you think the police are wrong, tell it to the judge and then sue them.

To thebronze: Telling a judge or suing doesn’t result in anything any more. Police are investigated by their bretheren in blue and the go-along, get-along district attorney’s won’t prosecute. And you’re stupider than you’d like to admit to being – public employees can’t be sued. That’s why they act the way they do. I WISH they could be. That would make them more accountable for their actions. I’m to the point the if “I” think an officer is not abiding by the law, then I refuse to accept his authority form that point on. I will no longer follow his commands and it will be man against man. I will use the same and more force against him than he used against me. The more the public see of crap like this, the more they will stand up for themselves. Now, why don’t you come to my house and see how you’re treated. !!!!!!!

The kick to the throat was totally wrong. No call for that. But keep in mind, this only half the story. What was said earlier? What was done by the arrestee earlier? What happened that they guy ended up on the ground? Half the story is missing. Did he have warrants out for his arrest? We don’t know. Did he resist earlier? We don’t know. A full, independent investigation needs to be conducted.

This is a commonly used technique taught to all law enforcement. It is a distraction technique used to temporarily stun a resisting arrestee so the officer can move into position to handcuff.
