Then again..I'm not one to take the Anti-Cop side by default and for definite reasons. That's just me.

IF there was a reason to stop these guys the reason should have been made clear in the first sentence out of the cops mouth!
if you condone these actions in anyway you are looking for a really bad future when they decide they don't LIKE something about YOU!
A: Not necessarily. I have seen people arrested for drug possession with a warrant served that were not told anything but their rights.
B: You assume that the guy was arrested because he was black. ASS U Me. There is no data presented other than the video. As you well know video can present a picture of an event that is totally out of context skewing the whole meaning of the event.
I will say if it is as it appears, then an extreme miscarriage of justice has occurred and the officer should be fired. If not...then a lot of people have opened mouth and inserted foot.
I hate to say this but the guy who first got hassled resisted just enough
to allow the cop to do what he did and justify it.

Because it is his right. Here in America we have the right to go about freely without undue harassment. This man broke no laws if he wants to dance down the street it is his right as long as he isn't hurting anyone which he clearly wasn't. Everyone of these cops should be charged and the one in the yellow shirt should also be charged with assault along with the cop that started this.

They booked him, didn't they?
So this man DID break a law.

I don't know if the cops were acting on a hunch or a tip-off, but they were doing what it says on the tin: FIGHTING CRIME.
I don't believe those guys were out collecting for the Red Cross, and probably the streets of LV were a little bit safer that night after that.
