Right to the temple on that one..I cant get how blatent it was..I mean he was layed out expecting cuf,and a camera above...
I would even say that the cop could of curled his toe under a bit and got him in the face.. Maybe.
Do cops wear steel toecaps normally over there? either way a size 11 in the head hurts (I can contest to that!)
Mind you that guy (the crim) could easily of hurt or killed an innocent, he was clearly going for broke and the cop was wound up in the heat of the chase... Without knowing the cops background I would have to say give him a fair hearing and a severe reprimand, but he should keep his job on the strength of that video.

It does not matter what the suspect might have done during the chase or that the officers might have been pumped up with adrenaline!
It is not a law enforcement officers job to punish a suspect, only arrest them!
It is SUPPOSE to be decided in a court of law, once a suspect is found guilty, what their punishment should be!
Not just doled out by officers at their whim because they may be upset with a suspect!

Hmmm, so because someone does something wrong, it's OK to kick them in the head, torture and beat them, even kill them?
Do people still not see the irony in the death penalty? "We" think killing is wrong, so we're going to execute you?
This planet really has no hope does it.

Its not like that kick knocked him out or did any type of damage. He barely kicked him.

Geez, perhaps the cop was a little pissed after this guy put innocent people's lives at risk with that high speed chase? What if the guy had killed a pregnant woman with his car? Would anyone still have cared if he got a kick in the head at his arrest?
Let's keep things in perspective here, the cop didn't kick a pregnant woman in the head at a peaceful teaparty or something. Sure he needs to be a professional but even professionals make minor slip-ups which I think this was in light of what the perp just put them through.

It was one kick to the head. Lets not make a big deal of it. Now I am sure the poor officer will get suspended and loose his job for one minor transgression.
