Well, hell. Don`t those stupid cops have loud-mouthed old mothers? They need to to back for some training.

Cops are asshats. Until they get held accountable, this will continue. They are NOT above the law, but most of the time they get to act like it.

jclv,
Thank you. You`re right on both points. Still would like to see the lead-up, though.

Sleepyhallow,
Unfortunately, we see too much of this kind of story because the cops who routinely do the job right are just not considered newsworthy and so we end up with a skewed opinion of how cops behave, in general. I`m sure there are plenty of would-be Hitlers who joined the force to gain authority and have the chance to push others around with impunity, but there are many who join because they feel a drive to keep people safe, even at the risk of their own lives.

F[u]ck the police.

Nothing but bullies with a badge and a gun.

They used to actually serve a purpose catching criminals but now all they do is Gestapo work.

I cheer every time one get shot.

While the cop was overly aggressive in trying to hustle her out of the courtroom, she did deliberately try to strike him in the face.
clearer video from another angle

Have to play something of the devil`s advocate, here. While it looks to me that the cops were in the wrong, I also have to note that we have no video until that moment and, therefore, no way to say with certainty that they were as completely in the wrong as they appear to have been. I`d like to have seen the 30-60 preceding seconds of what happened.

Gerry unless the cop was arresting you it`s not resisting. Cops do not have the right to just put their hands on you when they want to.

So, first the filibuster is illegally stopped, then police brutality commences when CITIZENS object.
Anybody still under the delusion that we live in a `free` country, where the elected officials work for the citizenry?
Thought not.

My big gripe Gerry is what constitutes resisting arrest? Was she being formally charged with a crime something? See if she had just been flaying around or not moving I would have been ok with whatever she had done as she would have brought it down on herself. Problem here is a cop can make up a litany of bogus claims and because they are a cop their word is better than anyone else.

Just like the guy that had his dog shot by cops. Yea the douchenozzle was being a jerk to the cops but you should have thicker skin then to say he`s obstructing justice with loud music. Seriously. Where are all the obstruction charges for the Media as they follow car chases in Helicopter`s that`s noisy and distracting.

If the cop grabs your elbow and you yank it back you are in fact resisting arrest. That said, the cops were still douche sacks.

I`m guessing she was refusing to get up until the officers were right up on top of her. Note that every other seat around her is already empty because everyone else got up and moved long before the cops arrived. She probably thought she could make some statement by not moving. She`s from the generation of people that held "sit-ins". Damned hippies.

The way I see it...she didn`t do what the officers told her to do and then resisted arrest.

That pissed me off!!!!

I wonder what she did before the video?

By everyone`s reaction on the video, it couldn`t have been much. They were all pissed off too!

I just don`t like a lot of the DPS officers here in Texas. They are arrogant and walk around like their pooe don`t stink. If you try to talk to them, they`ll blow you off and treat you like a peon. These, like a lot of officers it seems, are the ones that were picked on and outcasts who get a little power and feel like it`s payback on everyone. I sure like to see my tax money hard at work.

That looks like felony aggravated battery and armed criminal action to me.

Why do we let these Nazi pukes treat us this way and get away with it?
