First of all I had already stated that some of the people did go to far...yet..you want to condemn me for sticking up for a guy who obviously was no serious threat,getting clubbed to the head.
I did not say your family would be running on a field now did I?
But are you so sure someone you love will not find themselves in a position someday,that they did not instigate,but because of circumstances ,and authority believing them to be some kind of threat,won't endure harsh and unjust punishment?
NO..you can't..and if you want to make the mob seem like the bad guys here..have at it.
I for one would love to have the first few guys that ran out there, as family members of mine, and I'd be damn proud to tell others that they were family.

This is actually pretty old. I showed this to some of my co workers last year, and I was laid off in April.

Yeah! Beating up people for doing their job! Let's go to Wal-Mart and punch employees for stocking shelves!

To make matters worse he resisted arrest and if I was the cops or security detail there, I would certainly have done the same thing. Sorry Vitchilo but sometimes cops should be violent and this is one of those times.
Then you could have also been on the receiving end of some angry mob justice and got what you deserved.
It is never ok to initiate brutal violence against someone resisting arrest for a very minor and non-violent crime. Especially when you already have them on the ground with several pigs on top of them! If several of you are not strong enough to peacefully restrain him then you are not fit for the job.

No, that guy who ran across the field with a sign was an idiot. He deserved everything he got and knew full well he was not meant to do that.
The facts here are that this is just a thread for people to bash police, and why is that? 9 times out of 10 is because they are the ones who feel wronged by them because they have been in trouble before. You are calling me judgmental but at the same time taking sides by condoning what the violent thugs did to the police. Pot calling kettle black?
