When you're being brutally attacked all the victim thinks about is survival, uniform is irrelevant, every Human has a right to self defense and no damn uniform changes that


Very good point. Many people do not want think about it in these terms.


Yes you have the right to defend yourself. But not the freedom to do so when those words "you are under arrest" are spoken.Actually , you do have the freedom to resist arrest. Except you have the consequences to face when doing so....

Their job is to treat everyone with the same rights and dignity as a CITIZEN, innocent until proven guilty by a COURT.



Who remember about that now?

No matter are You black or white, matters that You have hands in Your pockets.

Really? If You did nothing but cop say "you are under arrest" are you going to put your hands on the back, lay on your face on the ground? Then they are handcuffing You and driving to police station. You look like criminal, but you are INNOCENT...funny right?

This much unjustified use of force is disturbing in many ways .
If the perp was a known terrorist with a suicide belt bomb ,
he is dangerous .
Some punk on a pushbike , screaming "mummy" , is obviously
NO threat to anyone .Especially face down , cuffed and tasered.
NOT DANGEROUS !

A human being . Probably with a few pre-existing health issues
that don't need beating .

Have seen more bravery from a ten year old ,...
in a wheelchair !!!!

Get your sh*t together America !

I don't know what happened before, couldn't see the guy that was getting beat so I'm not saying a thing about the actual beating. I just hope there won't be riots over this.


I hope there is.

I hope that every time a group of cops beat an unarmed person senseless, riots ensue. Every single time. No exception. When it becomes apparent that each beating (or shooting) of an unarmed person costs the city tons of taxpayer dollars in containing the riots that will follow, maybe some serious steps will be taken in how we handle it.

Riot. Lots. Every time.

believe that if you want to. Having a police officer say you are under arrest doesn't mean you lose your human rights.

Then you'd have to admit that you might have a bit of bias against the cops.

Pro Tip: Getting arrested isn't a badge of honor.

I don't have to admit anything because you made a wrong assumption
like some chump.
If it were a badge of honor, I certainly wouldn't dishonor it.

Care to try again?

You amongst others have a bias and dont know the law or policies law enforcement abids by. Its easy to preface videos with titling to steer opinion. Learn the state statutes on use of force designated for law enforcement to affect an arrest and then research the non lethal general orders by LEO departments, then post. Otherwise your uneducated view is just that, ignorant.

WOW a Beat Down..

Probably another Baltimore MD incident if he had Died ! In Philly ...


as i see Mostly White Cops..

just like a Homeless man

Death of Kelly Thomas
en.wikipedia.org...

Should Never be forgotten..

a Serious Beat Down By 3 Cops resulted in Death...



and Apparently The Group 'Anonymous" got involved to Do Justice ...


Anonymous response In August 2011, the Internet activist group Anonymous demanded that the officers involved be prosecuted, the Fullerton Police Chief resign, and that Thomas's family be awarded US$5 million in compensation;

They threatened to shut down the Fullerton municipal website if their demands were not met.
In January 2014, after the police officers involved were acquitted, Anonymous released their personal addresses,
as well as the identities of the jurors.
On January 18 and 19, Anonymous took down several websites belonging to or run by Fullerton police and municipality.[

en.wikipedia.org...

Just Maybe Anonymous Should Help out this Man ..

if its True and Correct a Innocent Bystander ..

A lot of this stems from the times people live in. They are against authority, period. In some cases it is difficult not to agree with them. In some cases , though , it is a matter of I am not going to let someone tell me what to do or not to do. Back in my time a lot of us believed the same way. However , we had peaceful protests. Thats what it is all about, The manner in which your disdain for some of these acts are displayed.Do I need to refresh people's memories of great people around the world that changed this world for the better with a non-violent approach ?


The world hasn't changed, the people in power have only fooled us into believing it has. They still control everything. It's the illusion of change that we have been sold. So keep peddling that fairy tale.

The totalitarian paradise that their ancestors have envisioned for centuries is almost here. The system is fighting teeth and nail to keep the current regime but we are evolving as a species and so Mich our government. Nothing changed I would like to say the original colonists had WAY more rights than. It only applied to white men but They could at least have land with no property taxes, and wouldn't get beat in the streets.

Will hold judgement on this as well. I dont know why the police were involved in the beginning .What I apparently do see is the person struggling against the police till the end. Even Rodney King admitted he should have been more compliant during the arrest.


oh so you see nothing wrong with this picture? how 8 pigs cant take control of one man? damn maybe they should have called for back up.

As I said in my original post , I am withholding my judgement on this case. However , in that video , it appears that he was still struggling and appears to be still trying to make a getaway .That is all. All these videos never show the entire event. Always just the part that some can use as proof of their beliefs....PEACE.

Pigs. Dirty, rotten pigs. No honour, no dignity, no respect, no remorse. String them up with the criminals they claim they're protecting us from I say. Throw away the key. Penalties should be at least doubled for agents of the Law. There should be no toleration of abuse of power in circumstances like these.

I don't care if the guy was a violent pedophile on crystal meth, this was excessive use of force any way you cut it. And the guy wasn't even close - he was just a reckless bicycle rider (is there really such a thing? Is America that far-gone as a Fascist Nanny State?).

No, this is pure sadism; brutes getting off on violence. Nothing more, nothing less. Just an excuse for indulging in violent psychopathic compulsions. These are not officers of the Law and keepers of the Peace. These are thugs, and they should be treated like thugs. Those who claim to be 'legitimate' or genuine officers of the Law and keepers of the Peace should do everything and anything they can to expose and annihilate these blights on human civilization, otherwise they're only aiding and abetting their own inevitable demise. People won't stand for this much longer, and pretty soon the tables will turn and it won't be a helpless unarmed citizen at the center of that orgy of violence - it'll be the Law itself.

What goes around comes around, even if it takes a while. You can always bet on that.

Furthermore, anyone who defends this behaviour is one of them. If not in deed, then in spirit. This is not how humans should seek to resolve their differences. Unless this guy was an immediate threat to society, there was no reason to use this much force. If that's the way we're going to arrest non-threatening people, then why don't we just start shooting them in the streets like the shameless Nazis we're becoming and save everyone the time?

This guy was hardly a cause for alarm. He rode his bicycle the wrong way down a quiet-looking suburban street at night time. That doesn't sound very dangerous to me, and surely not to the police. For Christ's sake, if that's all it takes to be beaten half to death by cops these days, then god help anyone who leaves their house. Not that you're much safer there, either.

No . I was actually locked up for about 2 hrs once upon a time due to a friend. I gave him a ride home .On the way we were pulled over and he dropped the drugs he had in my car. I went along with the police , my friend signed a sworn statement that I had not known , and I was free again with no record. Thats the way that should go...Now after that "false arrest" I felt I was open to say what I pleased...


I've been arrested thirty three times. Don't let anyone tell you
that you should've done anything different. You did exactly what
you should've done. Period.

But even after words you should just keep your mouth shut.
They know where you live and like a pit bull. They can make decisions
that aren't in your best interest. You might as well play russian roulette
if your going to smart off to the cops. I know it's not right. But obviously,
self preservation is righteous.


arrested only thirty three times? you say that like its a good thing lol!
