I believe the subject was NOT wheelchair bound as you stated. He stood up unassisted to fight the officer. The Officer did take it too far but what would you have done?
I hope you don't turn out to be a troll who looks for cops to critique? There are quite a few firemen who step out of line and when I see them reported on I try to judge them against the backdrop of their encounter without saying, "Oh, here's another drunken fireman behind the wheel." I don't blame you for pointing this out but your attitude stinks.
You dont know what your talking about. There have been dozens upon dozens of videos posted lately of cops out of line. Some of them I will agree are borderline, most are out of line. It is becoming more and more of a problem these days and bad cops need to be exposed. Hiding their actions is a thing of the past. Most of the videos I have a problem with are related to how cops deal with the armed honest citizen. But, these types of videos show the lack of control that cops have under minimal stress and makes you wonder how they will handle high stress situations. The guy in the chair was out of line. I could have subdued him and cuffed him in 2 seconds without any punches thrown or losing my temper. That was an easy, low stress situation handled incorrectly.
