What if the guy was high while driving? What if he lost controll of his car and killed someone? Think about that for a minute. All this guy had to do was spit out the drugs and he'd be fine a night in the slammer and a fine, but he resisted arrest. Now if the cop had taserd this guy and cuffed him you'd be yelling and screaming about how the taser wasnt necessary and how the cop could just grab him and taken him down.

Legalize it all meth the whole nine yards, if people are free they should be free to do what they want, regulating it is better than money going into criminals hands.

I'm outraged! The police are out of control. The guy was caught on camera putting drugs in his mouth. The officer should of just hand cuffed him and took him to the station. This is too much the police are falling right in line with the new world order. Evil

the men in the video from the ops link are absolutely correct


we need new policies and ways of doing things


this drug war is not working

and it is a war, and its not killing the enemy its killing innocent people

people shouldnt be arrested for drugs, at most they should be helped

this is a free country

but due to the drug war, amongst other things police are too brutal


no one should ever be at risk during a simple traffic stop

but due to policies implemented by law enforcement, they constantly raise the stakes attributing to these situations


except for explosives cops should never search vehicles and except for being intoxicated should never take people out of their vehicle

everything is escalating too much in the past couple years and we are hearing of too many injuries and deaths due to police encounters


we need true change as all this is doing is causing a greater rift between civilians and law enforcement


but to be realistic, nothing will ever change and these incidents will continue to increase in number, law enforcement will never back down or change their policies, they will only make things worse, we are in for a truly scary future

and its simply all to gain control over a free population

our forefathers died for us to be free

the only thing i wonder is how long it will be before people start standing up and start dying again in the name of freedom

Yeah sorry. But that man did not deserve to die. No one deserves to die over some drugs. Sorry. This vile PIG murdered this man.

And what if he was alien spy from the planet zargon and what he put in his mouth was secret plans for the destruction of Earth ?

It's so easy to play with "what if's" when you weren't there to full appreciate the situation

I agree dude, completely. pot is legal in my state if you got the CannibusCard, but they are quite easy to get. You go to clinics, pay them 100 bucks or so, and they hook you up.

But seriously ALL drugs should be legalized and regulated and all that.

The war on drugs is senseless.

poor man, he had some drugs on him and didn't want to go to jail because big brother wants to controle what you do. He is nervous and doesn't want to show the cop the drugs for he wants to live free, the cop sees the threat as something huge and goes over the line.

One man dead

score:

freedom: 0

Opression: 1

Welcome to another day in America

never mind. I find it disgusting how a pig comes into the thread and says what he thinks about the video and all of you agree with him. Quite pathetic.

Haven't had time to read all the posts on this subject. However from a law enforcement officer's point of view, I don't believe that the cop did anything wrong. Here you have a situation where the suspect is quite a bit larger that the cop-(it's called officer/suspect factors-relating to the resistance/response continuum).
If it were me in that situation, I probably would have let the guy swallow the drug, which can be very harmful to him, and then swab his mouth for residue. Then charge him with destruction of evidence, if there is narcotic residue, which is a felony here in Florida. I think that you may find that the court rules in favor for the officer. My final thought is: Good Cop trying to to his job, accidental death of suspect-not the first time something like that has happened.

Even though the war on drugs is senseless, the man should've cooperated with the cop. If he didn't resist, he may still be alive today.


I know, that sucks to think about......but you should know better than to resist a police officer.

BTW---it seemed like an accident anyway.

You have no idea what your talking about. Do yourself a favor and take a citizen's police academy, get involved, learn what it's like to be a cop hitting the crime ridden streets. Not just sitting on websites, getting hypnotized by all the hype!!!!!

That's definately adding a better view into what happened. Punching and hitting the guy with his knee was definately not needed, however I still don't see them intentionally killing the guy, and he was quite a big guy so help was needed but aren't cops trained in how to see if someone is breathing or CPR ? Seems like they were more interested in getting the bag out of his throat than his health. Interesting though that the coronas report didn't say he died by asphyxiation which would be the cause if the bag was blocking his airway. I really don't know what to think now so I'm going to leave this thread as I don't think I can add anymore

One more person learns the hard way: when you are doing something illegal and you get caught by the cops, do what they tell you to do.

pretty much.

people should know better by now not to eff with cops. Especially when they caught you with something ILLEGAL.

Even though I may disagree with that item being illegal, you still need to obey a police officer when he's telling you to do something.
