I`ve Got a question. If a cop beats himself up, can he be charged with police brutality and put in jail?

I resent your use of female genitalia as a negative with the inferance that any soft approach to a situation is feminine or that a feminine approach is essentially a negative. Take sexism out of your argument please.

@ Cataclism0 "i hate very few people more than ones like you who are more sorry a criminal got beat up than for a guy who was nearly killed seconds earlier"

The courts are there to slam him in jail for that, and with the way they do so in the USA I imagine he would be going there for a lomg time.

It is not for the police to dish out tough justice. Thankfully we no longer live in that period of time were people are hanged, without trial, by angry mobs. Get a grip dude.

Ohh Wait WAIT! The Cops are all INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!! I mean sure there`s some compelling Video Footage of them whooping the tar out of what may or may not be a criminal, but really what PROOF do we have that they`re bad people right? Guys?

They Deserve their Day in Court and the mild slap on the wrist that would be issued to any other criminal in this vaginized society. It`s just a Shame we can`t fire our criminals when they misbehave on film.

You know I`m just sayin`. Hate to be thought of as some kind of Crazy Right Wing Zealot or something for supporting the Cops and all.

Hey, umm, I cant prove you wrong but you are probably all of thos e things too! After all, things like hatred is an unavoisable human emotion. Also other things like racism is some thing that other people will always do, like you and being christian.

They wanted to teach him a lesson.

At the point where he hit the cop with his van dosen`t that warrant the use of deadly force not that they should`ve when he was unconscious but while driving away I`m suprised they didn`t shoot at him.

@Nullsign,

That shouldn`t matter. Instead of putting this guy behind bars for 10 years he probably got off with probation as well as suing the city for million`s of dollars. In retrospect would you rather beat an unconscious person, that would`ve been going to jail, and because of what you did he gets probation AND money, or would you rather just send him to jail where he belongs...gee...dumb f***in` cops abusin` their f***in power. It doesn`t surprise me though with all the dirty cops in the world...

I really hate it when I see police abuse their power.

But I can understand it here. At .07 he runs over the leg of an officer trying to deploy a spike strip. I can just imagine cries of officer down over the radio. Less then a minute after seeing or hearing that they get their hands on him. No time to calm down.

So hitting the guy a couple of times... I wont forgive, but I understand. Too bad there were so many cops there.

Damn....dude landed on the ground unconscious. There was no logical reason to beat him after that. Just drating take him away. It was really drating dumb on his part trying to run the officer over, but beating him when he`s unconscious is not proper law enforcement. Let the inmates handle that poo when he gets to prison.

No he doesn`t. Sure he has a right to feel that the American government is unjust, corrupt, whatever he wants, but saying that every American person is such? No. It is not alright for hatred to beget more hatred.

@ davymid: In case you haven`t noticed, the majority of Groogle`s comments are anti-American.

He has a right to feel the way he does, as I`m sure the previous Presidential Administration personally affected him in some way that has ruined his life.

But it`s starting to get tiresome... like a broken record or an annoying parrot.

And for the record Groogle, I have fought alongside CANADIAN soldiers in both Iraq AND Afghanistan.

Groogle, as a fellow non-American, and in no way a supporter of recent American foreign policy, I`d still call that a bit strong. Maybe you need to wipe some of the excess tar off your brush?

Just saying.

Countries where you are executed for expressing yourself, where you have 0 freedom and your liberties are just as useless as teh poo under your shoe. I will name a few countries. Iran, Iraq, Germany (during Hitlers regime), Cuba Pakistan, Afghanistan, North Korea, Dem. Rep. of Congo, Albania, Tajikistan, Sudan, Sierra Leone.

Being a police officer is extremely stressful. My friend was the most honest respectful person I have gotten to know. After about 8 months in the force his mentality dramatically changed. He is now hostile, rude and arrogant. Don`t knock on the way police officers behave, however, this is not the way to apprehend a suspect.

Maybe he was simply swerving to save a few hundred bucks on tires?

Also, I`ve read the story, there`s absolutely nothing about any police officer dying. I`d like to see a link to this story you read though.

I am usually the one to hate cops and say how unlawful they are, but I have absolutely no remorse for that guy. I saw this chase on CNN and this guy purposely swerved to hit that cop. That cop died minutes later. While i know it is not the cops` duties to do serve the punishment, this guy deserves whatever he gets and more.

Wow...

I totally understand why they beat on the guy... they had just seen him nearly run over one of their fellow officers, adrenaline takes over sometimes and things like this will happen.

But doesn`t make it right.

Being police officers, they should be and are held to a higher standard, therefore the firings are justified.

But the guy driving the van deserves everything he gets for what he did. While there are indeed times that I have no love for police officers and do not support their actions here, in this instance I completely understand why it went down the way it did.

I`m glad they are fired, corrupt cops brutalize people all the time and get away with by hiding behind their badge, and its bullpoo. Beating the poo out of someone who is a genuine threat? Awesome. Beating the poo out of someone unconcious? That`s someone being pissed off and acting out of some unprofessional self-righteous anger. It happens because they know a lot of the time they can get away with it. I wish more f ucking cops like this would be arrested.

I can understand being angry for the dangerous chase and hitting one of their own(but the cop but himself in harms way trying to stop him with a spike strip), but you know there is going to be film. Cops need to think a little. If I ever get stopped for any reason, first thing I will ask if the cop is recording this and if not ask them to record it.
