This is gross. Look how they act when a camera is on them, imagine when it's not.

I am more than fine with the Police doing their job. That is what we pay them to do.

But in this video, what exactly is their job?

This video shows the situation very well, a Black man that needs to comply or else. Nothing more or nothing less.

I am not a fan of lawsuits; this situation is a prime example of a great one!

All you have to do is comply and you will not get hurt. Isn't that what the Gestapo officer wrote an article about last week?

Call me crazy (I'm opening myself up I know), but I would welcome Al Sharpton getting involved in this one lol. There has to be a way to weed out these power hungry, corrupt, lawless officers. They are the ones that need to be arrested.

"It's also hard to reconcile a dedication to the "minimum degree of physical force" with the warning to the public in the pages of the Washington Post, penned by Officer Sunil Dutta of the Los Angeles Police Department, that "If you don't want to get shot...just do what I tell you." Dutta and his colleagues apparently don't agree that "to secure and maintain the respect and approval of the public means also the securing of the willing co-operation of the public," as the principles would have it."

"But modern police forces have gone dangerously off-track. They've become little more than a new set of predators from which the public needs protection. That Dutta's column was actually a response to public outrage over police conduct shows how disconnected policing has become from the people it supposedly serves."

Payday for this guy. He should have told them he was Santa Claus, Elvis or DB Cooper.
She said the only thing they needed was for him to tell them who he was.

There is. Each and every cop that claims to detest this sort of behavior MUST stand up and blow the whistle on them all. Until that happens, there is no such thing as a good cop.

Total abuse of power. Guy deserves a huge payday for the violation of his rights and those cops should be prosecuted and jailed.

Don't worry. I'm sure Truebeliever, Airborne and the others will be here soon to condemn the actions of these officers.

meanwhile:
You and Me: Texting while driving and killing someone == Manslaughter/Murder
Cops: Using devices while driving and killing someone ==Investigation, suspension, paid vacation and no charges because he was working (aka, on the job).
