We need to start enforcing excesive force laws on these overbearing I can get away with anything police. They are not above the law. The man in this video was not a threat, was unarmed, and surrounded by the police. He had nowhere to go! This is a blatent missuse of power. This just accured and there are not any more links that I am aware of.

I am not sure why I keep having to point this out, but…
If it falls under these rules then the police are allowed to do it:
(Yes… This is a Florida Matrix, but most states have the exact same thing, even the military police use these rules.)

Fleeing, is Active Physical resistance, which allows the Officers to perform a “Takedown”. That is exactly what the officer did, as is even stated by the article, so the officer was within his rights and duties. The fact that the person was excessively hurt in the process comes under, “if you don’t want a butt whooping, don’t resist arrest”.

Can you provide proof that he was..

1. Not a threat
2. Unarmed
3. Surrounded by the police

?

If you can not, then are you simply police bashing?

As the video shows nothing to support your assertions, I must assume you have detailed information from another source. Please provide that source.

Semper

Can YOU provide proof he wasn't
1. 2. 3.
if not are you just asking loaded questions?
Are you a total cop brutality-loving fascist? Probably not, so if you have issue with the phrasing of the OP, it doesn't support your case to follow suit.

If he was charged with a criminal violation it is the issue of a court to determine his guilt or innocence- none of ours. So why then must we be so careful about expressing our personal opinions? Honestly, did you really need the OPer saying, "I feel..." Please. Let's not get hung up on semantics. I think it is fairly clear he was merely expressing his opinion about an incident HE NOTED HAD LITTLE REPORTING BEHIND CURRENTLY.
