Here's an update.

Looks like the pig was on paid suspension ever since the incident. I repeat, paid suspension.

About a year ago the police chief of Fort Worth, Texas made local news when he went on record saying he wanted his officers to get testosterone shots to help manage stress and keep up energy levels.

Also known as vacation. And people think it's ok to let cops investigate cops...

Update. The officer enjoyed 8 month tax payer paid vacation. Now he has been fired. Lets see how long someone spots him working for another department.

Just another jackbooted thug! Let's break out the Wheel and do some breaking on it to learn up the meaning of liberty and civil service for all the jack booted thugs in blue.

Protect and serve? Yeah, their Corporate masters!

This is what we get for disbanding the citizen militia's. Paid suspension, that fascist pig should be in jail for Insurrection.

There are no laws that I know of that prevents people from video taping the police in Nevada. The cop was way out of line, and I hope he gets taken to the cleaners and put in jail.

They say if you're a good guy you have nothing to hide. Well, I guess that cop had something to hide.

What it should say is that Las Vegas TAXPAYERS pay $100,000 settlement for assault.

These occurrences trouble me. It always seems to play out the same way, and have a very poor ending.
Look around Youtube one afternoon when you have time, and look at the follow up videos, or news stories.

It goes like this:
Cop notices civilian filming.
Cop doesn't like civilian filming.
Civilian is usually very polite, and reminds the cop about rights/asks the cop to explain the law he/she is hoping to enforce.
Cop doesn't like the idea that civilian might be right (and usually is - Note: laws change state to state).
Cop makes arbitrary arrest/or inflicts violence.
Civilian is usually released from police custody without charge, and without apology.
Video goes out onto the internet.
News organization takes up the story.
Police department says they are looking into it.
Officer is suspended, usually with full pay.

After many months the officer may, or - more usually - may not lose his job.
There may, or - more usually - may not be a very quiet monetary compensation to the victim.

Result?
Absolutely no deterrent for officers of the law to change their MO.
No special training given regarding this kind of occurrence.
Rarely a public apology will be made (usually in a very local way).

So it will continue to happen.

Until the police departments, and other law enforcement agencies, are properly trained to 'cope' with civilians filming them, and the courts start coming down hard on those who take their version of the law too far, we can expect no change.

Sad, isn't it?

The biggest problem I have with this kid of incident is how completely ignorant most LEOs are about the laws they are paid to enforce. Not always their fault, because there are people up the food chain who tell them what to do. Policing is more than being a paid thug, and I realize that there are many LEOs with integrity. However, these usually don't end up arresting people for 'resisting' or 'interfering.'
The cop in the OP video (and I'll admit that the "nope!" answer was odd!) assaulted the videographer.
It was a pure and simple act of thuggery. There was no need for it.
I think the pay these guys receive during their 'paid leave' should be taken back once they are found guilty (in the few cases where that happens!).
