Beyond livid watching this.

5 months later and it is just coming to light?

This officer needs to be fired immediately and prosecuted.

Forget investigating - proof is in the video of his misconduct.

What a lowlife coward!

This is why nobody trusts cops and why protests break out.

Come on. Where's the training, the ethics?

What kind of "Man" does this?

Clearly he was in danger for his life...clearly. They almost killed him, good think he had pepper spray. Blah.

So you're saying if you go up to someone in the street and spray them with pepper spray you won't get charged with assault because it's a deterrent?

I'm not particularly outraged over this really, it's not that bad on a scale of police abuse, but it's still wrong. I've pepper sprayed myself before and it sucked but it wasn't all that horrible. Still...no reason for him to spray them. He could have just backed out as he was doing anyway as he sprayed them.

I'm quite sure if a regular civilian did that to someone who was not even handcuffed they would get charged with assault. Why does the officer get to get away with it just because he has a badge on? Police officers should be held to a higher standard than civilians, not lower, due to the power that they have.

I still can't believe you continue to try and justify the actions of that officer.

ETA:


The cop probably stopped that one kid from lunging and getting serious felony assault charges.


Totally. The next time you have an interaction with a police officer maybe they'll pepper spray you because you were "probably" going to deserve it at some point.


Ok then, continue with your one sided argument and see who can display the most believable astonished disgust. Remember to hug before the thread dies from all the agreement.

Sounds like a Cartman argument:



Works quite well.

I hear you.

I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, but its ridiculous for people to automatically go to the racist card even before the trial is completed or information is released. BTW that goes for both sides: either they automatically assume its a racist act or it is not.

The problem with labelling things racist today is that its more of a distraction to keep from getting to the truth by diverting from the real issue and keeping the people arguing among themselves.

Anyone that is not racist , can clearly see that their are some issues within the LEO community and if both the white community and the black community would join forces on this, something would be accomplished.

Agreed, it will take us all coming together to change the direction our police force is headed it seems.
