Quit making it easy for them: demand the "good cops" arrest and prosecute the "few bad apples" or admit that they are accomplices through failure to enforce the law equally.

[edit on 6-6-2009 by apacheman]

I agree with everything you are saying, I truly do. I want the good cops to weed out the "bad apples," as you say and I feel for the man that was assaulted. The force on the part of the police was excessive and there is no denying that. The video doesn't lie. If the officer is proved guilty then let the court put him away for a long time.

Is this the only video of the incident or is their a complete version? There is an obvious time lapse in the one posted.

I'm not saying this attack was warranted. I just would like to see what happened in the missing seconds or minutes. Who knows it might gives some clues into what happened.

You guys know what i mean.

here's an unedited version. it appears the man's only crime was being asked to cover up his bare chest and gave the officer's some lip service.
i'm only judging that he gave lip service by the body language displayed and the male cop's subsequent reaction.
doesn't excuse the beating administered. there are good cops out there. unfortunately, the bad cops make the entire force look bad.

off topic, i thought males were allowed to go shirtless?

Agh! What the hell? I keep seeing this type of thing happen more and more lately...

It's really scary that these stories don't phase me anymore, they happen almost everyday. I should be outraged but I expect nothing less from these pigs, the USSA is heading into a dark age nothing that happens surprises me anymore.

I think the cops are going to tell the courts that they never told him to zip his jacket. Therefore, it looked like he was reaching into his jacket for a weapon.. We have all seen this same scenario play out time and time again..

Sorry, I had a question about an uncut version, but someone already posted it.

Why is it that nobody questions other motives behind these so called 'cop beatings" ?

I'm starting to get this sneaking suspicion that some of these outlandish cop beatings in broad daylight, are fraudulent.

Something tells me that these cops and the "victim" conspire in the hopes of sharing outlandish settlements by the courts.

People have conspired for far less money.

A cop or cop(s) partners with a con artist agreeing that they will bruise his eye and tap him a few times in the ribs with a stick in plain camera view.

No long investigation really required, millions of dollars being paid to the victim, which a large portion thereof is wired to the cops. The story fades away and the Sheeple are passified with the false thinking that justice has been served.

Just because the media says it's a bad cop vs. good civilian case, maybe not.......question everything....trust nothing that you hear, and only half of what you see.

I'm not condoning the behavior by the assaulting officer but we need to know the facts. If the officer is found guilty then by all means prosecute to the furthest extent of the law. We don't know if the officer thought he or his partner was threatened? Sometimes they have to make split second responses and many a times they are deemed inappropriate or callous. However, we need to wait for an investigations' findings to make any conclusions on the matter.


Perhaps you do not realize how the criminal justice system works. You do not prosecute someone AFTER they are "found guilty." Instead, people are prosecuted after charges are brought against them and, ideally speaking, if the evidence proves guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, then the defendant is "found guilty."

I fail to see why this matters either way the cop is corrupt and breaking the law, either by assault or by taking a bribe and falsifying police reports etc. In either case justice does not get served I have yet to see an officer get the same sentence that a regular citizen would if their places were switched.

I can tell you from firsthand experience that Passaic cops are pretty rough.

This does not surprise me in the least.

I'm glad these videos of police brutality keep coming up, it's exposing these disgraces of officers. The more they show, the more people are aware and hopefully this starts preventing them from doing this. I remember getting pulled over, for going just 5 over the limit, he was acting as though I ran someone over. Then he went on about how it's "his" town, and blah blah. Then again I think he was mad because when I pulled over it was over the state line and he was out of his juristiction. Not my fault he put on his lights to slow. Idiot.

But I was also once tasered by the cops when I had to much to drink. So much so that everyone who was there, said I was so drunk I couldn't even stand, but these cops had felt I was too loud, so they tasered me three times. They also dropped me off at the hospital, but then tried to lie about it and say the ambulence took me there, even though it's in the nurses report that the cops dropped me off and there were a lot of witnesses that said the same thing. The marks were right on my spine too, they could have caused serious damage. I'm wondering if it was hot tempered rookie, rookies are often pretty unpleasant to deal with.

This is being disgusting. But, I really don't think this is anything new. I think every generation of police have had animals on the force who have done similar things. It doesn't make this right, don't get me wrong. I just think this is finally coming to the attention of the public-at-large. Just ask certain minority groups. Their grandparents will tell you. Not only that, I remember the father of a buddy of mine telling us years ago that when they saw a cop walking down the street in Brooklyn when he was a kid people made way for the cop.
Nowadays with all the video equipment we are seeing it all happen and are waking up to the violence.

Omg tell me your joking? .. what he SAID to the cop? Free speech.. as long as he didn't threaten their lives or health with violence he can say wtf ever he damn well pleases to those bastards.

If these .... cops.... don't get there force in line with what we deem acceptable, the reprecutions will be severe.


I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that the man said he had a gun in his jacket, and threatened to shoot the female officer.

We need cops. I hate power tripping egomanaical fools. Why do these types of jerkwads even get a badge? There are so many actual bad people out there that need a good beating...why can't these (wo)men in blue find them instead of beating the nearest minority or whatever?

You speak the truth.

For those who would like to see a more detailed video of what happened:
LiveLeak

The frame rate is lacking, so it is difficult to see details like whether or not he turned toward the cop after being placed against the cruiser to be arrested. Either way, the show of force was unwarranted.

Think for a minute.
If that would be the case then the cops would pull out a gun too and we would have a standoff where cops point guns at the subject.
You do not rush in to a suspect that is about to pull out a fire arm. It's ilogical. The cops just wanted to show who is boss and who is slave.

Exactly just as the poster said above me... if that were the case, then they would have drawn guns... not beat the guy... read this from the article...


That's not all. The video shows Officer Rios beats Holloway with his fists and his baton.

The 49-year-old, who is on medication for schizophrenia, does not appear to resist but that doesn't stop Officer Rios. At one point, he seems to stand Holloway back up, only to bodyslam him into the police cruiser.
