It is clear that the officer asks a few times why are you moving do you have something on you. So it is clear the kid is not complying 100%. I may not know everything but i know you dont move while a officer pats you down. Any movement while in a position like that they cant 100% perceive if its a threat to them or a twitch reaction that you did on accident. Then you can see the officer pull the kid back a bit and the kid had hold of the poster. Every arrest i have seen they want your hands open and not holding onto anything(gives you leverage to do any number of things) and this kid was clearly holding onto the poster. And from then on the kid was ating like a idiot saying i am not resisting but the pure of act of saying he is not resisting and not putting his arms back is the act As with others i dont 100% trust cops because there are bad eggs but in this case the cop was justified. Also the kid didnt get hurt. It wasnt like the cop did a pile driver on the kid. It was a body thr

I'd bet a fiver the kid mouthed off about the cops getting thrills groping people or similar. Then he hung onto the poster frame instead of putting his hands behind his back. Big deal.
