I disagree. I don't need to know the full context to conclude that a cop punching a citizen in the head multiple times under the circumstances shown in the video clip is wrong.

I can't defend a cop punching someone, they're not there or paid to take control of a problem by TKO. If someone punches at a cop the best course of action for the cop to take would be to restrain the person, not get in to a boxing match. That is escalating the problem not solving it.

This problem has become too common. The cop needs to be let go, he's a risk to the public and his coworkers. Then we need to go back a review all people in his department that were there to oversee him and check all people that trained him as well. It seems a little extreme calling for a review of so many but the problem has gotten out of hand. Something has gone wrong in the overseeing, screening or training and that problem needs to be found and fixed.

The public must take sweeping measures to reverse what has become an epidemic of police abuse and brutality perpetrated on the public under the guise of law enforcement . No one is above the law but the police, if allowed to go unchallenged, in this blatant criminality, will become only more emboldened in assaults on the public. We the taxpayers are the very people who pay the police to "serve and protect". And they work for the people - their true boss. The district attorney in Orange County, CA has and will prosecute police who commit crimes and has gone on record to state that anyone has the constitutional right to protect yourself from being assaulted even if it is a police officer. We the people have the obligation to uphold our constitutional rights and to defend ourselves if attacked. A police officer who breaks the law is committing a crime and has just become a criminal. DO NOT BE BRAINWASHED BY COPS WHO TELL YOU THAT YOU CANNOT DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST THEM IF THEY ARE THREATENING YOUR LIFE. Too many people who could have intervened to protect a non hostile unarmed citizen have stood idly by as the police proceeded to carry out an assault on an individual which has resulted in the deaths of many fellow citizens. You can start by beginning a petition to re-call the POBR (Police officer bill of rights) that was passed by virtually no one in the public even knowing about it. Many DA's in the country won't even bother to launch an investigation of police brutality since the police are very skillful at using the POBR which prevents the very legal scrutiny/investigation that the public is subjected to. Do you feel it is lawful for a police officer to not face the same consequences as the general public when they commit a crime? Civilian oversight MUST be a part of policing the police or these heinous acts of brutality will not only continue but will steadily increase. a reply to: jaynkeel

I am waiting for the public to start jumping in on some of these.

lol no, that's not going to happen, and cops know it. Most people have too much to lose. Your average working person who is married with kids isn't going to start brawling with cops and land themselves in jail for assaulting them. Their own personal lives will always come first even if they do witness an injustice.
