I have kept that story with me for many many years now.
that needs to be taught in every school.

Hope that cop fries. It didn't look like a whole lot of resistance was going on with 3 cops sitting on him.

Just another incident to add to my list of reasons I hate cops. It really is us against them.

Well, while I do dislike cops (mainly for petty traffic citations) You do have to realize you can't just lump them all into one catagory. There are alot of cops out there that do their job everyday and put their life on the line to make your life a little safer.

I can't see the video at work (GG firewall) but as far as resisting goes, any resisting is too much resisting. I know first hand (from working in a prison) that people seem to think "oh well theres 3 guys on him" that is excessive, 9 times out of 10 you take that third or second guy away and that dude is back up whipping someones ass, I've been in situations where it took 5 guys to subdue a very large and very unruly inmate.

All I can say is don't pass judgement before you know all the facts. Like I said though, I can't see the video till I get back home (6 and a half hours and counting)

Alot of police agencies are not allowing their officers to carry tasers anymore. People consider it inhumane, and after the "don't tase me bro" event it got alot of publicity.

a larger riot than the Rodney King trial, while Rodney is still alive that incident had better and longer video showing several minutes of no concern (understatement of the century) by several cops for his well being. just asking?

I stand by my comment. I know there are some officers that do a lot of good work, but because of the system in place I have no idea who I'm dealing with. Is it just some guy who passed a test or someone with that sense of serving and protecting. I don't know what ongoing testing or evaluations they get, but some people shouldn't be cops. That's where whatever the current system is fails.
The other thing that infuriates me is the "blue line". We all know it happens, cops will often protect other cops when they do something wrong. If I fuck up they'll take me in straightaway, but another cop they sometimes look the other way. That's where I get the us versus them attitude.

So I guess my problem is with the system for hiring and retaining officers. It's set up in a way that the public gets policed by people with a wide range of morals and motives for being in a position of authority.

I agree 100%. Even if it's for the most ridiculous reason possible, don't give them a reason to tack on "resisting arrest" and justify whatever idiotic thing they're after you for in the first place.
