I would love to beat the hell out of this cop one on one.

I don't see why some people think this is a victory against police brutality. Suppose I saw a cop riding a bicycle. I decide to shoulder-block him and claim he assaulted me, but the incident was videotaped. Could I expect my punishment to be the loss of my job and to have the taxpayers pay any fines?
Odds are this ex-cop will wind up working for another police department somewhere else. Maybe he can go to California and shoot an handcuffed suspect in the back for resisting arrest, or go to Texas and join an extortion racket.
Patrick Pogan claimed activist Christopher Long steering into him and knocked him down during a demonstration in New York.

I don't know what I can add aside to say that it is always nice to see justice prevail. The cop straight up assaulted this man and tried to lie/cover it up.
Which was stupid to attempt to do, considering there was BOUND to be tons of cameras around....
You know, as more and more cameras pop up, it creates the illusion that there are more and more brutality cases, but, really there is the same amount, there are just more cameras around to catch it.
That said, most cops are great. There are a few bad apples that ruin it for the rest though. This is one, and justice has been served.
