Peoria IL, police accused in the beating of a motorist have been arrested(2) I'm not sure what exactly constitutes "beating" I saw none in the video. From the vantage point of the cruiser dash cam, several officers can be seen struggling to remove a suspect from his suv, apparently then a brief ground struggle commences. Thoughts comments? I don't see any "beating" taking place here what about you?

May not have been a beating, but looked like quite a stomping!

You can tell that the officer who stays in front of the car, before stompy comes into the screen, is grabbing for his weapon and readying himself like the suspect is trying to get away.

I do believe he was resisting arrest, but 20+ kicks/stomps, to what is most likely the head is over doing it a little.

Have a good look at the video next time.
6 officers, to arrest 1 unarmed man. Theres your tax dollars well spent.!!
And when he's on the ground with a few officers on top of him with their knee is his back, call another officer so he can kick and stomp the hell out him.

This is not what we pay them to do!
And if you dont agree, the next time your pulled over - just wonder how your going to be treated...hmmmm

Trained attack ants were attacking the courageous law enforcement officer. He was forced to defend himself the suspect and the other officers. The officer deserves some kind of decoration and a pay raise. Video never shows the whole picture in these kinds of situations. Video is only reliable when used to prosecute civilians.

The officer in front of the cruiser should have a two-gun holster.

What I want to know is why they pulled him over.
People do not trust the police now and that is caused by
what has been going on around the country.

I would say that sense the police have been arrested there has to be something else that has not been released.
I would like to see a picture of his face and head. Also as I stated above I want to know why they pulled him over. He may have done nothing more than ask why they stopped him.

I noticed that the officer in front of the cruiser (with the cam) seems to peer over the hood to see the stomping and I do believe he is grinning.

Its hard to tell just what's going on from the dash cam. Though the one officer does makes about 18-20 leg movements that could be stomps. But you can't see what he's stomping on.

In any event.. here's an atricle on it that gives a few more details.

MSNBC - Two Peoria Officers Arrested in Beating

Those officers were named in a lawsuit filed earlier this year by Bryce Scott. The 33–year–old Scott claimed he was brutally kicked and stomped by police following a brief chase in May of 2008.

How dare you say that about a trusted public servant sworn to up hold the law.

He is clearly grimacing, his life was in danger multiple times, that’s why he repeatedly
Reaches for his weapon then removes his hand. To untrained observers it just looks like he doesn’t know what he is doing, but that is part of the deception. His police training.

I have no doubt all the officers involved have in the past received numerous, Recommendations, Decorations, Commendations, Citations, Awards, Community recognition, locker room pats each other on the back, and general accolades.

I didn’t see any beating either; the guy stomping on someone’s head was in the way.
