'Rising level of anger' among minority groups towards San Jose police

Four police officers in San Jose, California, are under criminal investigation after grainy video footage shows two of then hitting and Tasing an unarmed suspect.

A two-minute clip of cellphone video obtained by the San Jose Mercury-News shows officers Tasing and hitting 20-year-old Phuong Ho as he lay on the ground in the hallway of the apartment he shares with roommates.

Although the video is not entirely clear, one of the hits appears to come after Ho was already handcuffed. If that is the case, then the offic

Protect and Serve?

I sympathize with the LEOs because they have to deal with the biggest scumbags that society has to offer.
But don't police get somekind of sensitivity training when dealing with people that don't pose a threat other than verbal abuse?
Beating a handcuffed man. WTF?

I doubt if I would call the cops if I had any trouble. I'd just prefer to take care of it myself.

I have lost faith in our institutions to protect me.

The cell phone video was unclear but it looked like that student was handcuffed and still received a beating.

I agree with you. I went to the sheriffs office three times about a caretaker stealing about $75,000 from some old people and never even got an incident report written up. When I had 25 cows shot I didn't even bother to call them. I'll find the people that did it and deal with them myself.

It's a sad day in this country when what used to be called "Public Servants"
become the overlords; being a combination of judge, jury and the ones that deal out the punishment.

Of course not all LEOs fit that model and most are good people but I see a distinct trend to respond with excessive violence on the part of those in a position of authority.

It's a brave new world, welcome to the monkey house.

Nothing new here, this has become standard protocol in some police officer's minds and until the public fights back enough against this blatant burtality, I'm afraid we will continue to read articles like this

I wonder what the percentage of LEO's who are good people really is in this country. It seems that a lot of them have an 'us against them' attitude.

I think that many start out with good intentions, but then once they've been on the job a while they become jaded. Also, I think a lot of people join that profession for the power and control that they can't get anywhere else.

The worst problem is that even if you're a good cop you can't "rat" on your friends. There is that thin blue line or whatever it is called. Good cops don't take honor anymore in keeping the force clean.

That's a good point. The good decent cops have 3 basic choices:

1. Go along and get along. (Easy)
2. Quit. (Much more difficult)
3. Blow The Whistle. (Crucifixion)

Gee, I wonder what the majority decide to do?

And I'm sure the San Jose internal affairs unit will do a through investigation and find the LEO's acted with proper restraint and within proper protocol as usual. Move along, nothing to see here!!
