Am I the only one that doesn't see police brutality here? The guy was resisting arrest. Also he wasn't being beat with the nightstick he was being jabbed probably to comply and let them cuff him. In a situation like that they want to get it settled as quickly as possible to AVOID what happened. Sitting on the guy in the field asking nicely until he decided to put his hands behind his back isn't how the law works.

Yes there are some situations where it's clear brutality, but this doesn't seem so clear to me.

Also you can't just let people take the law into their hands like what happened here, who gets to decide whats right and wrong at that point? There were plenty of witnesses and a camera, they could have taken it to court like civilized human beings. The guys life was not in danger, they weren't actively beating him or kicking him, there was no need to step in.

Violence as an answer to violence will get you no where. All we can see is one angle of a video but a court case is how this should have been dealt with if it truly was brutality.


Are you sure you watched the right video? Nice fairy tale you made up there. 4 on 1, u can subdue no problem. If it was 1 or 2 guys than maybe you can justify using your baton a few times to get his hands. But this whole thing about "poking" him with it....LMAO
nice one. The government is also looking out for YOUR best interest

If you get anywhere near a cop in the United States, you're guaranteed to get shot.

I really truly don't CONDONE this type of attitude towards Police officers. Their jobs are very dangerous as it is, and many lose their lives on the job, because of hate mongering. Yes there are some bad apples, but not ALL police are BAD.... this guy ran on the field with a sign, no he wasn't a threat, but they must maintain peace and order, specially when soo many people were in once place at one time.

SHAME on them

Its NO wonder why there are no "Higher beings" if they exist, would want to interact with us, were savage beings capable of only destruction and hurt.

Considering that the man had a sign with some incentive to the referee, I don't think that any person (police or private security) used to soccer matches would think that the man was thinking about attacking anyone.


Off-topic: Also @ whoever mentioned my name (can't remember who it was) It's a reference to "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king." I was going to go with PuppetStrings but I think it was taken.
Have you read H. G. Wells' "The Country of the Blind"?


He could be though, and that's why laws and rules like that are set in place. Seemingly harmless people running around can turn not so harmless when they have a concealed weapon. Imagine if it was just okay for anyone to do that as long as they had a flag, it'd only be a matter of time before someone ended up seriously injured on the field by some maniac fan thats pissed off.

No I haven't read the book.

If you look clearly they are not hitting him in an up and down motion they are jabbing him with it. Yes it probably still hurts like hell, but it's hardly lethal. Also it wasn't just the one security office, the one closest to the camera gives him a jab or two also.

4 on 1 is not as easy as it seems when you're trying to hold the guy down and get his arms behind his back. He could be carrying a knife or a gun for all they know and they're not gonna give him the chance to reach for it. So they are trying to cuff him as soon as possible.

I also don't appreciate your tone, suggesting that I made up a fairy tale, it's hostile and rude. I'm simply stating my opinion on what I saw like everyone else.

I also do not believe the government is always looking out for your best interest. Almost never. These however are security guards, or perhaps cops I'm not sure. I wouldn't exactly consider them to be the men in black or covert ops or anything so nefarious, it doesn't take a whole lot to become a cop, or definitely a security officer.

If these officers of whatever kind, were brutally attacking this man it should have been settled in court. I mean there were hundreds of witnesses that could have testified about what happened if it was unjust. It's really hard to tell from one angle on a camera pretty far away with people in the way. In not even 30 seconds more he probably would have been cuffed. Instead, it turns into a riot and assault, and guess who that looks bad on? The public.

This is the sort of thing they point to and say "Look. You guys aren't capable of handling yourselves civilly so we NEED to be around all the time. We NEED to use force." It only makes things worse.

maluminse's video is not the subject of this thread, it does contain wrondoings, but is overedited. We need the right perspective here.

There was no need to hit the guy.All they had to do was tie him up and carry him out,not beat him up while he's being held!That's an act of a coward and shows abuse of power!They act like the guy was a terrorist or something,when all he was doing was having a good time!

Funny how this thread got that much flags and posts.

Never saw that coming.


It's kinda sad this thread gets that much attention and much more important threads do not.

Clearly not what you observed the first time, or rather bothered to mention, although you now say you see what everybody saw?? The jabbing is potentially lethal, and if you are a policeman and have not been trained for this observation, then you are ignorant for not inquiring in your training as to the possible affects of this kind of action. Just because you might be trained to do this action, does not allow you unresposibilty for the consequences. What you are saying is that ordinary folk always have to play catch-up with the law legalese and and big money.

These are not even cops, they are just security guards at a sporting event!

Absolute rubbish.

Lord knows I am one of the first to complain about police brutality, but this guy invaded the pitch at a sporting event.

He got what he deserved, the fool.

Two wrongs do not make a right

yes they shouldn't have been hitting that guy like that in anyway. There were plenty of them where they could restrain him. I don't think he was going anywhere.

However when they did attempt to get away and were mobbed that is where I do not agree.


Why do you disagree with the mob?

I've seen plenty of streakers at football games. The wardens get them and escort them off. Probably gets time for being a goof or a fine. This is over the top.

Dont start none, wont be none. they got what they earned.

Had they been good cops/wardens, this would have been a crowd of laughter instead.

It's not supposed to be the police's job to subdue someone using 4 officers and then proceed to beat him with a baton, either. Only in a society as twisted as today's are people like you around making excuses for it. I'm just pointing out the many ways it could have been handled other than the one you are sickly trying to justify. Why do you think that crowd got so upset and jumped in?


I've still not seen this "severe" beating this guy was given. The cop poked him a few times cause he wouldn't let them cuff him. What the hell video are you guys watching anyway. You seem to be mixing up Rodney King getting thumped over and over to some twit getting poked with a stick. Hell most took worse whuppins from their pappy back in the day when they misbehaved. Gimme a friggen break.

I find it even more funny, that people react, as if this happened yesterday.
If there is some kind of time traveling, than it is like this thread. People argue about things, which happened a long time ago.
Doesn't matter at all. They were not there when it was discussed in 2004. Who cares about time and space? This is a conspiracy forum! Defend ignorance!
