I have a question.

Shouldn't the arrest have to be warranted in order for an officer to be able to charge someone with resisting "arrest." I am pretty sure that riding your bike on the sidewalk is not a "crime" that warrants arrest. Therefore, what we really have here is a case of battery on the part of the cop. I hope she wins her civil case and it ends of costing this police department a large sum of money and this cop his eligibility to ever carry a badge.

Too many cops these days think they are above the law and that they can do whatever they want. When will this attitude end?

In the video, it does not appear that she elbowed the officer, but it looks more like she jerked her arm away from his grip, as if it was hurting her. This would be a involuntary reaction to pain. This is another method to escalate an encounter with a perp and is actually taught to cadets, push the buttons, hit the nerves.

And again, the coc aine possession is much too suspicious here, IMHO, seems more likely a plant to thwart some of the heat from all of the other effed up brutality here. A "throw down" or "plant" as someone else said.

Bare it in your mind that the root cause of this episode is a cop over extending his authority over a lone female at 6:00 am. Only the woman actually knows where she is going, possibly to her job at that time of day, I hope that she is not now counted as one of the unemployed as a result of this.

*My first ATS comment*:
In the live leak vid with 43 and 42 seconds left respectivly, one of the "assisting" officers gets in two devastating blows with his right knee. Enough unbelievable brutality to go around I guess.

Nope. If you watch, she has her hands locked in front of her. This makes it difficult for the cop to get any leverage to pull her arm behind her back to cuff her. Kneeing her on the side causes her arm to pull back, making it easier to leverage and move her arm behind her. This isn't out of the ordinary to subdue a resisting suspect.

He didn't knee her in the side, he aimed for and hit her coccyx: a devastatingly painful blow that could cause permanent damage. If you watch carefully you'll realize he knew exactly where to hit her and obviously has used this technique before.

Wrong! They pulled her over because she was riding on the sidewalk!!
Are you trying to distort the facts on this case??

Even if she was wanted on drug charges.. Does that warrent that kind of abuse??? NO way!!

At the end of the video.. It says she HAS been given a warrent for drug charges.. NOT that she was pulled over for drug charges!!

Why defend the cop on this issue? He was clearly in the wrong no matter how you slice it.. Wrong 100%!!

Thus your post is misleading.. And you have to watch the video you posted in your own words...

"Frodo, son of Drogo..."(LOTR) Maybe he has some issues?

Seriously, let's get all these criminals off the streets and sidewalks, and maybe someday we can get to the lesser crimes.. like hijackings and rape and murder and...

That was irony/ sarcasm. Sorry for that.

Man... That's why I moved to Vietnam. If a cop here dose anything like that, the public in general would kill him. For too long, the people in the US has been bred into fearing the cops. I'm sure there where people around watching all this happen. There should have been a serious ass beating. The people need to keep an eye on the wolves guarding the chicken house.

What a lot of people don't know is the state of Florida tortured children to bloody pulps for decades. And when I say tortured that is exactly what I mean. When I say bloody pulps that is also exactly what I mean. The police knew about it and were in on it. We heard their practices were outlawed some time around 1968.

Througout known history there have been four main power monopolizing organizations which have committed the worst violations of human rights. They are governments, militaries, religious organizations, and police forces. Read the famous book "On Power" by Bertrand De Jouvenal the French political critic and activist for more details.

On April 19, 1995 Timothy Mcveigh launched a retaliatory strike against the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City. He did that to strike back against what he saw to be the gross abuse of power by agents of a too powerful government. After all. Somebody had to do something about it. It was clear that when agents of a government committed crimes against the very citizens they were supposed to protect, the only authority they had to answer to was the one they worked for and represented---not the people, but the power of the government. Of course the killers of Waco were let go, which was easily predictable by anyone who is familiar with such proceedings. The adults and children killed in Oklahoma City have been much memorialized, but when do we hear about the adults and children murdered by goverbnment agents in Waco?

If you will take the time to study about the various rebel actions across the globe, including the one in Northern ireland which has lately been ameliorated to some degree, you will find that no matter how much the establishment media have succeeded in demonizing the forces opposing the government, there had still been gross provocations and gross violations committed by those governments which galvanized people into action as rebels or guerrillas or what have you to oppose those ruling governments. In the case of Russia and the Soviet Union the military and police established a complete reign of terror and human extermination and terror.

Keep in mind one thing as you read about the human exterminations that have ravaged this planet. None of them would have been possible without the active, willing, enthusiastic cooperation of the military and the police.

Hundreds of milliuons of innocent people have been systematically murdered, tortured, and slaughterd like animals by the nilitaries and the police.

please don't read anything else into it. this is common practice in new jersey,especially in the rural areas. south jersey is where young cops go to learn to over react
in this case ,what you see is what you get. state troopers included. but i have to say it wasn't always that way with the troopers.
sorry,cuz. not you

Hey, I completely understand that some cops do over-react, and can be seriously power-mad, BUT, I still don't think this woman was all innocent here. My oldest used to live in an area with a lot of drug activity (all they could afford), and there were people on bikes moving money and drugs around. This woman reminded me of them, big time. Just an impression, I know, but that was the first thing that came to my mind.

One thing I did notice, this woman demeanor was not that of crack head, if she was crack head I'm sure she would have been cracking.
If you notice she was in control of self to what she could be under circumstances, she was not out of control, but asking what are you doing.

This might have been bad area, but almost seems racial, was black woman?
