I do my best to always find accurate sources but usually take most of them with a grain of salt, so to speak. I prefer to try and have the most open
minded and neutral view point I possibly can.
They say pictures are worth a thousand words, and sometimes videos are worth more. When I see this video, I can not really stay neutral in this
circumstance. In my opinion, it does not matter too much... what went on before. Police are supposed to use only the appropriate force to control a
situation. Once the suspect is handcuffed and put in a vehicle, Unless he is kicking and could possibly harm himself or others, there is no need fo
such terror tactics.
I have a feeling that many of these kinds of officers who exhibit this type of behavior, have watched way too many lethal weapon and Die Hard movies.
They identify there own personality with an actor in a movie and take on the personality or scene with them on their job. I will admit, that is
streaching it a bit...lol this is only speculation on my part, but the rise of this type of behavior, after the suspect is detained is definitely
happening much more than it used to. Perhaps that is more to do with more people and camera filming everything and actually catching it on tape.
The media is a double edged sword, the create the drama and the images and make such things available for all to see, thus changing perspectives both
positively and negatively. They also help expose such truths to the public eye and show the realities. I have been on both sides of the law, and I
must say that I have seen how a small situation can be manipulated and exaggerated by authorities to bring a desired response or effect.
I try and hold a neutral stance when it comes to law enforcement, but anymore...It is getting quite hard to not be a little paranoid and biased after
seeing video ,after video, after video of these types of events unfold. In my eyes it is a stunning confirmation that we are living in a police
state, with our interests no longer valued.
