A cop in Owasso Oklahoma has been caught on camera using excessive force against a suspect after previously being fired for stomping on a handcuffed man’s head and then repeatedly elbowing him in the face.

Officer Mike Denton is again under investigation after video emerged of him repeatedly beating a suspect with the butt end of a shotgun.

Video:: Cop Previously Fired For Excessive Force Beats Suspect With Shotgun

my opinion is not welcome here, but i can say this is assault with a deadly weapon. i will not sit idle if my son is treated this way with out stopping the criminal commiting the assault, nor would i expect him to sit by and watch this happening to another member of the family, or an innocent person, without stopping the commission of the crime. when the law says i would be a criminal if i stopped this from going on, then i guess i would be a criminal. and anyone who would turn a blind eye to this, or justify it, is a coward..... in my opinion.

If I... a common citizen, restrained a man and bashed him in the face with my elbow and stomped on his head... I would be guilty of a felony.
As such a felon, I would play hell trying to ever possess a firearm again.

This guy gets a firearm issued to him.

How does this make sense???

So he was fired for violently assaulting someone while in uniform... And then he was hired again, to do the same job?

However, the Fraternal Order of Police argued that Denton was “protecting himself” by stomping on the man’s head, almost breaking both his arms, and elbowing him in the face. They filed a grievance which was heard by a federal mediator, eventually leading to Denton getting his job back, and even receiving back pay and benefits.

Nothing more than an organized gang.

At least he didn't blow his head off with the shotgun...by many cop standards of late, he was reasonably restrained. (sarcasm)

He got way too caught up in the adrenaline of the moment. The situation was mostly under control and there was no reason to bash the dude's head WHILE he was being tased.

That cop needs to be black balled from wearing any kind of badge, including security guard.

Here's the video that was the cause of the previous sacking, stomping to the head, elbowing in the face. Victim received $75000 in compensation. Nice piece of work that officer...not.

Well, it was the city/whatever that got the beating in the wallet. Anyway, it's pretty obvious that the safety of a prisoner...repeat prisoner, was not the highest concern in that episode. And who knows what went on beforehand, or after for that matter. The compliance of other officers in those kinds of situations bothers me too, that's scary.

Tyt just released a video this past weekend where they explaned that more people die by american police, per capita then any other police force in the world. It's something like 145 per 100,000 people die by police guns a year. No other country even comes close to it. Hell there are individual states that have more deaths by cops then the entire lifetime of some countries.

Now if you look at the 2011 numbers of total gun deaths in canada it works out to be 0.02 deaths per 100,000.

The number difference is phenomenal. And the canada numbers are Total gun deaths in Canada.
I'll never visit the states again. It's too dangerous to risk it.

It very well could have turned into a pulp fiction moment. Jabbing him in the head with the barrel of the shotgun...what could go wrong?

Honestly, the US isn't nearly as bad as it seems. In fact, it's pretty safe in most places. Remember, you're on a doom-porn/conspiracy theory site. So people here are naturally going to focus on the controversial parts.

However: I would advise tourists not to make themselves "targets" (like flashing large amounts of money, wearing excessively flashy jewelry, being belligerent to locals, etc). Also, learn to read the atmosphere. For example, if it looks like there's going to be a massive brawl, it's probably better to leave. You can't get front row views of fights/"drama" and then be shocked that you got caught up in the violence. And don't go looking for trouble or you'll find it. Then again, I'd offer this advice to any tourists, regardless of their destination.

I can't think of any other company who would rehire you after stomping on a customer's head and elbowing him in the face.

"Well, Mr. McStomperson, I see you were fired from our McDonalds last month for almost killing a customer but... awe, what the hell, yer hired!"

Not only was he rehired, but he was also given back-pay. Watching videos like this make my blood boil. I've been on the receiving end of police brutality while handcuffed, and it makes you feel helpless and enraged. Why don't the citizens in this country ever stand up and demand these problems get fixed. Those are our tax dollars paying these corrupt pieces of human trash to rough us up. And it's our tax dollars paying this CRIMINAL'S back-pay for his vacation after being fired the first time.

Um, "good cops"? When you say you can't stop the bad ones from doing this sort of thing? Here's your golden opportunity.

FOP et al purport to be representing YOU when they force pieces of human # like this guy back onto the job. YOU GUYS have the ability to tell them that's not what you want done.

As you don't, from our perspective, you seem to be not only condoning this sort of behavior, but supporting it. So don't act all butthurt when we don't trust you and tar you all with the same brush.

LEOs should be required to pass a state licensing exam and be subject to an independant review board. Actions like could cause an officer to lose his/her license and no longer be allowed to practice law enforcement.
