Ok, so I saw the cop jabbing the guy pretty hard, he could've been less over-zealous, but honestly they "tried" to arrest him for a justified reason, and maybe he was trying to resist arrest, so when the crowd came in and helped him escape, they're in the wrong as well.

Sorry, it's bad on both sides on this one and this isn't some "victory" for the people.

All violence is horrible, don't care who's involved. Can't condone it, sorry.

It is a sad day when the people paid to protect us, are the ones we need protecting from.

i believe in non violence myself, but too many cops have been abusing their power for way to long. To make progress in society, sometimes more direct action is needed. think of all the abuses we dont see because no one was there to film. not to be to big of a cynic, but honestly what if our founding fathers main force against the british was peacefull protests? right now we would be bitching about tea taxes while housing british soliders, all while talking with english accents! cops and the governments they represent do not respond to diplomacy or intellectualism.

The crowd was emotionally charged to start with! The officers took a big gamble and lost! They should have erred on the side of caution.

While it is not right to respond to violence with more violence, this made me laugh. It's an eye for an eye, a beating for a beating. Reactionist train of thought leads to more conflict, this I know, but how does one put out a fire? By lighting a bigger one next to it.

Yeah I wasn't sure at first either.

But hey, does it really matter where or when, cops or guards?

Okay... I take that back. Real cops would have probably used a *little* more restraint... enough to drag him behind the stands for a good "tuning up".

No matter where it is I don't know if socialism is to blame. Maybe that answer lies a little further down the rabbit hole.

This more resembled natural phenomenon than a social upheaval.

There was action, then reaction.

2 wrongs don't make a right,

But 1 wrong seems to attract a LOT more wrong

I am watching it again........feel good everytime watching it.......this is justice in its purest form.
Give them the taste of their own medicine.

Are you saying that a real cop would have done a better job by using a little more restraint in front of the public, then having a go at him behind the stands??

I sure hope not..cause that is appalling....Then people wonder why the average citizen has no respect for cops.?

I want to respect cops,and there are some I have high respect for..and I realize their job is not easy..but with a menatality that they are allowed to give a "tuning in".....like they are entitled to that, because of their badge?

Please tell me you weren't endorsing what the real cops would do, cause thats even worse then what these security clowns did.

By all means, not an endorsement.

Just saying that it would more likely happen that way if they had been real cops. Therefore remaining unseen, with little to no public reaction.

The term "tuning up" is one that real cops (around here) use in reference to improvisational law enforcement... brutality, beatings, coercion, etc.

No. I would never support police misconduct in any light.

When I say a *little* more restraint... it was sarcasm. Meaning just enough restraint, and just long enough to beat him elsewhere besides before the eyes of thousands of witnesses.

Thanks for your concern though.

Unfortunately, I'm sure next time they'll just drag the guy off the field before they beat him senseless. Trust me, the only thing they learned is to hide the brutality more carefully.

The people reacting to the brutality isn't what's most important to me...it's the fact that they can, and they chose to do it; that's very important!

People simply forget how powerful they really are! There is no amount of police or soldiers on this planet to subdue the masses. There is no amount of ammunition that they can effectively use against all of us. Because, if they fight by hand, we will quickly over power them. If they use weapons...they will soon see that they're also doing themselves harm and are actually attacking loved ones in the mix.

As smart as we are...ants seem to better understand that there is strength in numbers.

I beg you, do not be naive!

Contrary to popular belief, the police do not exist to uphold justice. The police are to "Protect and Serve" but it's to protect and serve the code of law, not people. Justice is the department of the courts; however, the courts have the responsibility to uphold the law as well. Our sense of justice is determined by morality. For the justice system, ONLY the code of law matters. Justice is served if people who break the law (whether the law was ethical or not) are punished.

Cops are in a position of power. It is human nature that such power is abused but that does not make all cops 'evil'. I can assure you everyone here will dial 911 or 111 if the # is going down.

The crowd didn't have to beat the security guards (they are not cops). Only stop them from beating the poor fellow.
Peace above all. You don't have to attack, you can defend and maintain peace.
But it's hard for an angry crowd to do the right thing... The guards were asking for it.
