Just the typical low blow swipes from you again. I give up trying to get something of substance out of this. Let just leave it there like you suggested.
I think its a shame that a lot of people on here, see a police officer being assualted and all of a sudden go crazy with happiness. Its quite sad really. I cant understand the mentality that a lot of the people possess, in that they openly support violence against one group of people and then condone it against a much worse group (the criminals).

Ok, this is F'ed up on both sides. The cops were a bit excessive. But to be honest, he was resisting. You couldnt see exactly what was going on but it was fairly obvious he was struggling. On the other hand, he was just some fan being a doofus, not really a threat at all. On the other hand, they beat the hell out of those cops. Not really a valid response to being upset about "unnecessary violence"
However when they did attempt to get away and were mobbed that is where I do not agree.

Thanks to OP for posting this.
Unfortunately, in countries like United States, China, Russia, North Korea, Israel, Singapore and Jamaica, the police always win. The government of these countries have all the powers to spin/silent people and media.
