    Sigh, again and again, folks, just do what the Police say. Don`t fight with them, you will lose. Is it really that difficult?

    Okay Patrolboat. First two cops. Not overweight. Bulletproof vests do that to you. Third cop was a doughnut lover.

    To the cop haters who will claim brutality: THIS WAS NOT BRUTALITY! HE WILLFULLY TRIED TO BOX WITH THOSE COPS!

    You resist, you`re drated. Period.

    "anyone else notice everysingle one of those cops was overweight, some of them extremely"

    I noticed long sleeve shirts, winter gloves, winter jackets, bullet proof vests, and likely, winter underclothing for those in long sleeve shirts but no jacket.

    No doubt some of them were overweight, but for those of us who hate being cold, it`s pretty obvious how large of a difference layers can make.

    All that said, this was one of the tamer video`s on this cop watch youtube channel.

    Christ, you really are that brainwashed, aren`t you?, you deluded cretin. If CCTV had been invented back in 1942, I guarantee there would have been some feckwitt like you saying "just do what the Gestapo tell you, just get on the train, how hard is it?" when images of Jews being beaten up as they resisted being taken to concentration camps surfaced.

    I see no issue. This is what happens when you refuse to submit to arrest. You are subdued and forcibly restrained. Tough guy got what was coming to him. Funny how he suddenly seemed super cooperative afterward.

    What do you expect will happen when you try to resist arrest? Do you really think the cops are going to say "Oh, I`m sorry. I didn`t realize you didn`t want to be arrested!" and walk away???

    @MacGuffin- Do you never tire of your broken record vitriol regarding the States? If you are going to bring up the faults of a Nation, try not to make them historical failures that no one alive today has witnessed- kinda lessens the validity and makes you seem like an hysterical nutcase.
    But as long as we`re revisiting the past, what`s your stance on the U.K.`s imprisoning, torturing, castrating and otherwise maiming folks in Africa during the 50`s and 60`s?

    It`s impossible to know the full story here, but I would not consider that police brutality. The subjects body language was confrontational and he repeatedly extended his arms towards the officers and the other citizen. As the subject became clearly increasingly agitated the non-officer retreated indicated he did not feel safe. The officer used neutral body language and calming hand gestures. AFTER his partner attempted to place the subject under arrest the officer put up his hands and the subject did not back down. The officer did his job period.

    Wow, MacGuffin I had no idea they were taking him away to be gassed in a gas chamber! I thought they were arresting him for trespassing. You are so right, he should have fought harder than he did to prove your point!

    Thanks for that link trippyhippy. I`m in agreement with MacGuffin and piperfawn on this one.
    @ Lebowski, Auburnjunky, Reciprocity, RobSwindol and CaptKangaroo - Of course the man was agitated! He had permission to be there and (although we don`t have audio) was likely trying to tell the cops that. As such, they had no business trying to haul him off to jail - he hadn`t done anything wrong. A simple phone call to the property owner could have confirmed that. Why should he have allowed them to arrest him? If you had permission to sleep someplace and some cops showed up and tried to arrest you, you`d just say "okey dokey, take me away"? I really doubt it. Cops are not perfect people and they aren`t always right. This was abuse, plain and simple.

    It may have been a bit over the top, but the guy clearly was resisting. Just remember, folks, cops aren`t paid to fight fair; they`re paid to win.

    Guys:

    1:22. Fists up. Pulls pants up to gain range of motion. READY TO FIGHT!

    You do not do this against a cop, EVER!

    If he is detaining you unlawfully, allow it, and SUE THEM! YOU WILL WIN!

    this guy has the classic `israeli-just-out-of-the-army-look` if that is the case then his `aggressive` body language could be an israeli being an israeli. they are always very animated when they talk, more so than italians.

    Yeah, he was resisting, but aren`t the cops supposed to be trained in how to
    deal with that using "minimal" force? It looked more like they were enjoying the
    brawl.

    Sadly, many high school bullies choose law enforcement as a career.
    Even more sad is that they pass the psych screening.

    What are your thoughts on being the most surveillanced country on the planet? Or are you that brainwashed? Funny how you think police over there don`t beat the crap out of people facts show otherwise.

    I`d also recommend you don`t wiggle away from an officer and enter a boxing stance. They`ll see that as a threat and beat the crap out of you until you stop.

    ROFL!!! Ya they started being killed right after we declared independence there was no French and Indian War. Now tell me how you like to pay taxes to a royal family that got it`s fortune through generations of genocide on multiple cultures....

    That`s still no reason to keep resisting after you`ve been outmatched.

    why was that female officer trying to stick her nightstick up his @ss?

    When did this happen?

    He was resisting arrest. But he may have been there legally, if that was the case I would also. He pulled up he`s pants after he was shoved and they slid down. And he do not put up he`s hand till the cop tried to go golden gloves on him, and then tried to relax till he was hit in the jaw. I cop was using him as a punching bag and not trying to use a Submission Hold on him. Bad cop or poorly trained take your pick. The male police officer Escalate it and was not trying to disarm the situation.

    1. that cop look like Al Bundy.
    2. why are they all so fat?
    3. way overboard, not trying to pacify just beat the crap out of the guy who is half his size. Or better said, half his weight.

    In this case, I`m not on the side of those cops. Was way, WAY out of proportion.

    -----------

    That`s what the courts are for.

    There was no abuse here, plain and simple. Once they place you under arrest, you comply, period. If you fight, you get beat. You work it all out afterward, using the courts if needed. That`s the beauty of our system.

    I hope next time you run into the cops they beat the snot out of you after you don`t comply

    I agree with Forplay - it was resisting arrest. As to him being there legally or not, there is no way to tell since there is no audio to know what the conversation was.

    However, this was an overly excessive use of force. Like that naked college kid that got shot and died, the cops could have (and should have) used a taser or pepper spray on him. Physical beating should only occur if the suspect takes it to that level.

    The police protocol of dominate and control is in and of itself Fascist. This is attractive to the type of people that become cops. It allows them to vent and express their violence onto others in a plauseable and deniable way. In this way they can perpetrate and yet still be considered a "hero". (Psychological profile).
