I can't beat the system but I'm a part of it. So what to do? If a cop says stop then stop. You can ask why you're being stopped.

It's a very common mindset among Americans that people apprehended by the police deserve these severe beatings. Most don't actually believe in the Eighth Amendment, as they will not only support this but then support the idea of people being raped multiple times in prison.
Is it so hard for you to comprehend that the criminal the cops were chasing was a danger to others including horses & cops who are people too?
The cops should have just let him go. right?
If it was you he robbed who you gonna call?

I'm sorry I didn't catch that but did you mean they tased him while he was laying flat on the ground so that he can't get his hands behind his back so they can justify beating him? Luckily he managed to get his hands behind his back anyways. Cause you know, having hundreds Of thousands of volts flowing through your body can cause lost of bodily control. This is common sense. It won't do you any good to bend and twist this video to its breaking point.
However, if he hurt an officer, that beating was justified.

Quite the ignorant comment. Many Americans, you can see some of them here, do not believe people are to be beat by the police.
