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

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.

Do we know why they were called out and by who? The people filming can say what they want. Maybe they saved some abused kids. There is nothing conclusive on the video.
