There's obviously a huge problem if police are arresting people for calling them names since I know of no law that prohibits any citizen from doing so (unless there are threats being made). If police are this sensitive and cannot control their emotions, then they shouldn't be doing the job they are.
And to the people saying the guy should have kept quiet or are defending these actions, you're a bunch of pussy sheeple. If no one holds police accountable for their actions, it won't matter how quiet you keep eventually.

I'm not saying he was wrong or right here but he should have understood his Miranda rights
Maybe a little class is in order here.
Miranda rights and what they mean to idiots who provoke cops.
(And, yes, normal folks who are having one of those days)
1 You have the right to remain silent. (i.e....shut up!)
this one would have been a good piece of advice before he opened his mouth.
2 If you give up the right to remain silent anything you say will be used against you in a court of law.
(Didn't you hear me before when I said "Shut up!" If you don't then it's gonna get worse.)
3 You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to you.
(You can't handle this. Call a lawyer. Ok fine, you're broke. We'll call one for you free of charge.)
4 You have the right to have the attorney with you during questioning.
(Hey, didn't we say we'd let you have a lawyer? Shut up and wait for him to get here and whatever you do, don't babble to the cops you idiot!)
Maybe these should be posted on the side of police cars so people can read them BEFORE they get themselves arrested.
This man decided to video tape some cops harassing some young woman for no reason as they pulled her over and groped her breasts.
I also find some humor in the fact that the police in this instance are actually committing numerous crimes that range from false imprisonment, armed robbery, and kidnapping, but then

In this country you have many rights. Including the right to stay silent.
I'm thinking this guy should have used that one right.

The cops are people too. And if you get in their face or start calling them names. Well you can expect a beat down.
What more 'satisfying result' do you mean? Cops get away with what they were doing to the woman all the time.

Lol I have to say this guy is an idiot
You dont call a cop a nazi to his face, by saying that you think your bigger than the law, and when the cop asked for his ID he should have shown it to them without making a fuss.
Yes the cops were wrong but if this guy just kept quite and then took the matter further by going through right channels he would have gotten a much more satisfying result.
