Yea because the cop has a right to take control of you even if you haven’t done anything..

If a cop requests sexual favors even you should do it then file a complaint..

That’s ridiculous.


Cops do not detain a person without reason, you do not know what came before this clever little video was cut so the cop looks like a bastard

US cops shooting black people is an EU orchestrated trick to create hatred and attempt to created disorder in the US, in order to hurt the Trump administration. There's almost always an EU backed 2nd shooter that actually kills the target in an orchestrated provocation.

Look on the bright side. At least he wasn't shot.


Haha, this is my thought. Everyone there should count their lucky starts the cops didn't blast him and anyone nearby recording it.

I mean, in a way, the cop not shooting him (only tazing him) means he doesn't get a fat bonus and 6 months paid vacation, so you could say the cop was the real hero here.

The reason for him being detained is irrelevant because he was being compliant. Are you implying that certain crimes allow for an escalation of force on compliant suspects? Police are not there to judge or punish, they are there to enforce the law. And using force on a compliant individual goes beyond enforcing the law. Had there been an immediate need to use force prior to the video being recorded there would have been much more urgency from the officers to take control of the situation. That urgency wasn't there.

So what exactly are you looking for prior to the video that would justify using force on a compliant individual?

Yep, EU intelligence spooks are notorious for orchestrating incidents in which a black gets killed and a cop appears to be the culprit, while media and other extremists makes a political case out of it. It is not to be excluded at all, that royals from northern Europe and from the UK are behind this tactic together with the German and Italian governments.

Oh I got this one, this is easy.

Suspect was resisting arrest by forcing the cop to use his tazer on him (as in, as soon as the cop tazed the suspect he was resisting arrest). Non-compliance of any degree from any directive a cop gives, whether it is possible or not being irrelevant, is an immediate charge of assaulting an officer, and the suspect is liable for the recharge cost of the tazer as well as any expenses the officer incurs between the assault and booking.

There are countless reason the cop would react that why.. the guy could be a known trouble maker and a gun carrier, he could have threaten someone, saying something like I will shoot you, implying he had a gun.. so the cop was alerted and was showing caution.. afraid he would pull a weapon.

Use of violence should be reserved for violence. People not following directions one million percent should not be a cause for violence. He may be deaf, he may be slow, he may be having a panic attack -- but was he endangering anyone?

The police using force should never be to assert authority, but only to prevent harm.

I must be watching and or listening to the wrong or totally different video. He was ordered to sit on the curb with legs out stretched and ankles crossed. This position is used so the person in question can not just jump up and either attack the officers or bystanders or jump up and flee from officers. He was given plenty of verbal direction to do just that. From his slow response and movements it seems he was high. Its always strange to read comments from those that have never put themselves in those shoes. The officers made a assessment that this individual was a threat risk for violence or for fleeing. Why is it that officers have to wait to be physically attack with possibility of death before they defend themselves? Just because a individual has chosen to serve in the capacity of law enforcement don't mean that they are martial arts masters or boxers etc. some do have to rely on the less than lethal tools that they have. Actually some depts. require the use instead of physical hands on. Back on topic, this individual decided he didn't have to comply with the instructions he was given resulting in him being tazed. He wasn't beaten or shot just made to comply with lawful orders.

We've been informed plenty of times around here by those who have served or are currently serving in law enforcement that a taser is not the most reliable weapon in their arsenal. So if there was any threat involving a firearm I can assure you that the police would not have their tasers out instead of their firearm. That's just common sense. And an individuals priors might make an officer more cautious of that individual but it doesn't dictate the current situation.

If the man was perceived to be a threat for whatever reason to the officers then why didn't they cuff him from the start of the detainment.Confusion is violent behavior?

That's outrageous and uncalled for! Some people shouldn't even be on the police force. It's a-holes like this cop that give police a bad reputation.

What about a conservative saying it is ok for the government to murder its civilians if they don’t follow an order..

No trial..

No jury of your peers..

Just executed.
