I fyou think the police are gettign too agreesive, why watch them through a camera instead of a scope?

Militarized police only stay that way because we allow them to.

I love the videos that show the cops being aggressive but fail to show you what started the whole thing. Invariably if you just do what they tell you to do, when they tell you to do it, you`ll be fine.

I`m still amazed that it took the tow truck driver 6+ minutes to hook that car.....

The fact that one policeman can`t talk a loudmouth person down and the fact that all those cops responded to that clearly shows the incompetence of this police-force.
Problem is that with the terrorist-scarecard being played there`s a big need for cops and security people. The pool of good cops and security people has dried up long ago and now the standards of joining the police are getting lower and lower.
I wonder how long it will take before convicted murderers on a chain gang will be policing the streets.

So I`m guessing the lesson here is to not park like an idiot in front of the local crack house.

If you have been "beat up by cops, slammed into screens, tear gassed." you might want to re-evaluate how you are living. #1 trait of people who have run ins with the law.....0 accountability for their own actions. That guy was a jack ass and talked himself into jail.

I`ve been beat up by cops, slammed into screens, tear gassed.
This video is obviously evidence of a slow day at the doughnut house.

@djwajda: The TV show "Cops" has had a long run, it`s still being made! :-) And spawned a LOT of similar shows. "To Serve And Protect" is a Canadian show, very similar to Cops, but SO DEPRESSING! 90% of the "clients" are stoned or drunk...

I`ve had lots of good experience with cops, first hand. But I`ve heard horror stories, from people inside the police department, and 1st hand experiences from people I know.

And yes, female cops are either VERY good or VERY bad... there`s just no middle ground it seems!

Not all cops are bad... but not all of them are good either. And they have badges and guns...

Also got off with a warning when a cop found a quarter of weed in my pocket. Though I was 16 at the time.

Guess you got a run of bad luck gerry. So far i have had 0 problems with cops. Even got off without a warning doing 70 in a 45. Guess mine can cancel out yours. Take the good with the bad.

@gerry

And why do you think that is? Is it more entertaining or bring more comments to watch the cops doing a good thing or a bad thing?

I spent 20 years in various forms of law enforcement. I`ve seen the good and the bad. However I`ve seen more good than bad. I will never deny there are non-nice individuals wearing a badge but I`ll defend the good ones til I`m in the grave.

The cops that responded to my door in less than 5 minutes a few months back and helped me find my autistic daughter that had woken up early and snuck out of the house in only a diaper....they are fracking heroes in my book. So, for the 4 of them I`ll deal with 1 or 2 bad ones that are dicks. Sorry that`s just how I feel.

The cops really overdid it in this one. The guy looks like he wasn`t resisting or getting physically aggressive.

@ djwajda, I see your point, but there are sooooo many videos. And for every video there`s a few instances that weren`t caught on camera. Individually a cop might be a cool guy, but collectively I don`t trust them. I don`t believe they are there to help or protect me.

Just background: My dad was the town sheriff. I was brought up to trust and respect the police. And I did until I grew up and saw them in real life. No, I`ve never had a major run-in with them, but every dealing with them I have had has been negative, even when I was the one who called.

Especially female cops. They are the WORST!

@djwajda: No worries, but I`m not NEARLY as bad as @piperfawn! I hope! Yeesh!

I bash the cops when they`re bad, I praise them when they`re good.

The problem is: we "entrust" them to behave better than they do in this video. The number of things they do wrong? The crimes they commit? The essential human rights they deny? It cannot be glossed over OR forgiven.

I dearly hope they investigate this. I cannot imagine any excuse for the initial action (choke hold & slam-down) other than "I thought he was resisting". That piggy needs to be fired, asap.

Our new police chief is now running an investigation. Yes, this is where I live :)

@5Cats: Omaha has cops just like any other city, both good and bad. This one just happened to not be so good. To lump all of them into a category and label them pigs makes you no better than @piperfawn in my opinion. Sorry, but I call it as I see it and I`m tired of all cops being bashed for the actions of a few.

"I know my rights"

I love when I hear people scream this, what do they think? The cops are going to stop and say, "hell, I didn`t know you knew... you`re free to go."

Also, what the chances that they actually know their rights verses some distorted perception of liberty.

OK. Cop is moving black guy, black guy bumps into truck, cop put choke-hold on black guy and hauls him down without warning.
That cannot possibly be legal.
Guy#2 stands there yelling at the cops. Eventually cops chase him into his house and arrest him.

Tow truck guy just keeps calmly working...

Eventually, at least 13 cruiser cars show up (12 left and at least 1 to the right we can`t see) to arrest two non-violent dudes.

Nebraska has "piggy-cops" who knew?

I guess `a pig is a pig` no matter where he or she is.
