    The first cop you see in the video obviously has had practice getting his foot up so high, enough about that. I especially liked the guy who made his way into the crowd to lend his contribution "kick to the face" I thought it was gracefull as well as a good finishing touch. enjoy

    "ok we got em we got em" A round of butt pats for everyone, high five we beat the ch** out of a sick guy.

    Fairly common police tactics nowadays. Beat/shoot first, ask questions later, all in the name of going home at all costs.

    I want Officers to go home to their families every night.
    Some of this behaviour is unneccesary, uncalled for, and flat out wrong , but it has become justified as long as "everyone goes home to their family".

    That is just disgusting. There was no need for any of that even if the dude was drunk as a skunk.

    looks like they tried cleaning it up once they decided he may have been in dibetic shock. But alas to little to late the guy should have sued for more than $300,00. Some leo's think they can do what they want when they want. Don't get me wrong those guys have a tuff job but some of them do some really stupid stuff.

    When a person is in shock or having a seizure most cops figure they can take them, so they take advantage. Cops also feel they can take most people with at least partial body paralysis. A guy that I went to school with normally waits for backup then after the perp is cuffed he tazers them.

    In Iowa? You are kidding me right? Your school mate tazers them AFTER handcuffed?

    Some one should catch him off duty, and take that tazer and shove it far far up his ass and turn it on:eek::eek:And wait till the batteries run down.;)

    Pathetic behavior on the part of these cops, but I don't believe this is the norm...at least not in these parts. I'm not sure sure what all the struggling was that required so many get in on it, he didn't appear to resist. Around here at least, I believe they would try to talk to him and find out what the problem is.

    No, believe it or not there are lots of crooked cops in Iowa. I know one cop whose kid committed armed robbery with a pistol(9mm I think) and got PROBATION! What the Hell, I would still be in jail!

    That makes me sick to watch it. Sadly enough a situation happened to me that was similar to this around 1986. I was jumped by a cop and did not know he was a cop. I punched him and he backed away. Then they started moving in and I surrendered. However, they threw me down and the cop that I punched began kicking me and I could not guard his kicks. The next thing I know the cops realized that I was not who they thought I was, however they were going to arrest me for hitting the officer. What saved me were the people that lived around me that saw everything, and I had no arrest records. I was just a guy walking along the sidewalk after a nice run. The police gave me a speech on how they could arrest me for what I did (hitting the officer) but once I said that I was going to talk to an attorney they suddenly just mellowed out and appologized. I really was not hurt, but it was pretty humiliating. The sad thing, after the cops let me up off the ground, I realized that the cop that was kicking me was actually a guy that had worked out at the gym where I worked out in recent years. One day, maybe about 2 years later, he was behind me in traffic and pulled me over and I thought oh no, here we go again. However, he walked up to my car and appologized. I got out of the car and we shook hands. We must have talked for about five minutes and he was actually a pretty nice guy.

    From Priests, to police officers, every group of two or more has issues. Unfortunately, folks only want to read about the bad ones.

    Just because I had a negative excepience with the police doesn't mean that I dislike them. I took the Boise City Police academy several years ago. I respect them and am grateful that we live in a country where we are protected. I have a rather large handful of friends that are police officers and just because I had a bad incident with them does not mean I have to look at them in a negative view. There are many stories that come out of the good that they do.

    And some folks want to ignore the bad officers and innapropriate tactics/use of force.

    I couldn't justify their behaviour if the guy had turned out to be drunk. Confused is NOT RESISTING whether you're drunk or in an insulin shock.

    F%&k those a$$#^*&$, and the a$$#^*&$ that trained them and told them that was appropriate behaviour.

    Tom


    P.S. I am a reasonable man.
    If someone wants to explain the citizens actions, the officers actions, and why they were justified, from an LEO perspective, I'll listen.
    But blanket generalizations to the effect that people are just overscrutinizing/overreacting to an unfortunate situation doesn't go very far with me.

    To suggest that any officer anywhere in the country is trained to behave in that type of manner, indicates a complete lack of knowledge about the subject.

    To expect anyone to drop into this thread and suggest the officers actions also were justified, suggests you expect current or past officers to back you up on the already extreme opinion you have of all police officers. That's not going to happen.

    A reasonable person would have not made a remark that sums up an entire group of folks who put their lives on the line every time they walk out of their house, and compare them to the officers in the video.

    I'm done here.

    EDIT.....Do you know what the black band around the badge in my siggy represents? It's a band that all officers in a department wear when an officer is killed in the line of duty. I can guarantee none of those dead officers cared one way or the other what anybody involved thought of them.
