    Police brutality? Not at all. Another case of civilian stupidity. The cops had probable cause and that gives them the right to investigate. If they see drug use or, as in this case, believe that you are hiding someone who has been the victim of domestic abuse, they have a right to talk to you and make sure everyone is OK. Not letting them in is just making you look guilty and giving them a reason to enter the home.

    I saw nothing wrong. The guy should have opened the door and cooperated. The cops thought there was domestic violence going on. Geesh....the guys an idiot.

    I think the police did well.
    They are called to a domestic violence incident and they are refused entry, probably by the perpetrator. What should they have done - gone home and let a murder take place?
    If the police came to my house asking questions I would invite them in and talk about the issue they were investigating, why the hell not? Some citizens are knobs. (I`m sure some police are too, but on this occasion it was the citizen. Knob.)

    If you give the cops a reason to use their own "better judgement" don`t be surprised when they do. That being said, it could of been obvious the citizen was just being a hard ass but they cant assume

    The one thing I have against this is, "a phone call reporting an incident" I mean literally if I call the police about my random neighbor anonymously that guy could be subject to a breach simply on faulty intel. I mean I want there to be some investigating to be done instead of just throwing the rules out the window because they "think" something is going on.

    Ugggh. Hard to watch. That said, my verdict on this one is that the citizen should have been willing to step outside with his family, as the officer suggested, and show that everyone was all right.

    I *don`t* have the sense the police officers were eager to kick in that door, and I *don`t* have the sense they were eager to go in that house. The uncooperative behavior of the citizen forced them to.

    I don`t know the whole story here, but it would seem the best course of action might have been to comply (keep the video running though), then do the lawsuit thing if he thinks he`s got a case.

    Right or wrong, if you don`t comply with an officer`s request, they`re going to get you. Of course, there are exceptions, like the poor guy last week that didn`t resist at all and ended up getting beat to death.

    I want to believe that most cops are respectful guys and cool-headed. Any time I`ve had an interaction with a cop, they`ve been nothing but professional.

    We all know there are bad cops, I just hope there are fewer of them than the number of videos of bad cops circulating the Internet might suggest.

    Well, clearly, when the police get a report of domestic violence, drug traffic, a shooting - whatever - at a house, and someone inside says everything`s okay, they should take him at his word and go away.

    They do not need a warrant in cases where domestic violence is a concern. That man is setting a terrible example to that child and made a simple situation traumatizing.

    Also...he screams like a woman.

    Incidentally, I`m giving the video 4 *s because I think videos like this are interesting to analyze to figure out if the situation was handled correctly. I also think videos like this help to convey what a difficult job being a police officer is. Police officers have to make judgments based on incomplete information all the time and getting it wrong can have disastrous consequences.

    What brutality? Screaming Boy got tazed - -that`s hardly an act of `brutality.`

    He wouldn`t have been tazed at all if he`d simply been calm and let the cops see there was no abuse going on. A short conversation, a quick peek inside, and done.

    The dude was an idiot.

    Dometic violence call - the cops are required to enter and check, no warrent needed. Right or wrong, the femanazi`s got that passed. In other states it`s worse, the cops are required to arrest someone on every domestic violence call. So if there`s no problem they still take the man into custody overnight just to make sure the woman has a chance to escape. He ends up with an arrest record whether he`s done something or not.

    So the cops HAD to enter. They did not have to require them to "get on the ground". They passively didn`t cooperate, they were not violent and shouldn`t have been restrained.

    Stupid people AND stupid cops.

    Also, the cops were very nice, especially the one in the lead after the door was knocked in.

    They could have come in all gung ho, but he was all "Please get down." in a calm whispering voice. Nice guy.

    I`d also point out that in a large majority of domestic violence situations the victim will actually end up defending the husband, or wife as the case may be.

    These are the one of the worst situations for a cop to walk into as you do not know what to expect and these officers handled it pretty calmly.

    Hmm, yeah- however. They wanted to see for themselves there was no domestic violence. Unless they could get the wife alone whatever she said is suspect. I would never have dared say something was wrong unless I was 100% certain my ex would not be able to get to me afterwards. Better safe than sorry.

    @chicagojay: They DID! It`s called "Detroit" :-)

    If the police get a call for domestic violence? they ARE coming into the house. It might be a small violation of your rights? But it saves many lives. Screaming at them won`t make them run away...

    I wonder why they Tasered the female first?

    5Cats But is obvious...in order to protect the woman, the police had to break in and taze the poo out of her. Like when they have tazed and pushed face to ground that pregnant woman in the parking to protect the child in the womb.

    It`s possible that, while the guy was ranting to the cops about his rights, his bruised and bloody wife was motioning to the cops to come in and save her. I`m not saying that`s what happened, I`m just saying it`s counter-productive to jump to conclusions based on ninety seconds of video. That being said, FTP.

    I like it when people post the names/addresses/phone numbers of cops when they do stuff like this.

    Since no one is allowed to police the police, it`s really the only option we have to give the power hungry pricks what they deserve: fame for being an non-nice individual.

    Not enough information here. But it appears no warrant and no probable cause. Man and woman both told them to go. The cops are not to diagnose battered woman syndrome. We are not a country who has to lie down and be complicit when the cops come. I would say I always side with liberty and the police have to prove they are right. That is how it works in a suppression hearing. The state has to prove it did not violate the constitution.

    I think the real problem in this case is police training. They are so afraid that no situation can be solved anymore with common logic. Guy does not want 4 cops in his house, i understand what about just one guy, unarmed? Giving something back, compromising to defuse the situation like a normal person would?

    Instead they escalate the situation. Not because they want to, but because that`s how they are trained these days. No one goes in alone. period. No one backs out an inch in fear of losing authority even when the decision was wrong from get go and they know it.

    No common sense from either side. And police are the one who are required to stay calm and use.... common sense. That`s what bothers me in these videos, use of "standard procedures" instead of using your own head. Two people hands up in air. Check.. 4 cops with guns and tazers: check. No injuries on either civilians: check. This probably is not a crime happening here: check. Procedure: bust in, t
