And the police didn't actually help the situation either, he was going to walk away but they blocked him. They made the situation worse that it would have probably been. If they had simply let the dude and the female walk away,.

What was the Female charged with any know?

Exactly. Just let him go. They clearly were only in for the 'kill'.

The woman? She was probably charged with assaulting an officer. Sorry to say she did start about whacking the head of one of the cops while he was failing to subdue her man. And yeah, that's a no no - can't hit them back even when they start it - as unfair and unjust as it may seem.

Well the guy should consider himself lucky for only getting arrested.

I heard Bill O'Reilly discussing a case last night about a 17 year who was having a disagreement with his manager at work and the manager called the police. When the police showed up the boy was visible upset and threw something down and the cop tased him not once but twice and it resulted in killing the 17 year old.

This tells me whether your in the right or not if a police officer tells you to do something you better do it or it could cost you your life if they didn't get taser training before being issued a taser weapon. Which in this boys case his family won a 600,000 lawsuit as well as a 10 million dollar one against the taser company for selling the taser weapons without training.

I noticed a third cop early on at the scene who seems to conspicuously remain off camera.

You can see three cops clearly at 3m53s as the jiu-jitsu dude tries to walk off after the girl gets maced, yet the main two cops wait for a different cop to show up before the final engagement with the jiu-jitsu dude.

I don't think it is the same cop at the end who claims to be there when he wasn't (9m10s), or is it?

Is it just a camera-shy frightened phantom cop with a bad back or has this guy got something to hide?

When I first saw this post I had to check it out to make sure the guy in the video wasn't my cousin in Destin, FL...Ever since Katrina he's been living on the streets by his own frustrating a decision for family memebers to except. Anyway he calls me when he can to let me know he's okay since not many family memebers want anything to do with him. He advised me that he was harrassed by the police and didn't get up and move fast enough. He said that they beat him so bad that he wouldn't stop bleeding so they had to take him to the hospital. At the hospital the cops advised him that he was being arrested for resisting arrest. Well he goes to court and the judge dismisses his case, apologizes for the cops beating him and let him go. I advised my cousin to lie low when the police come around or it will happen again and he might not be so lucky.

apparently this beach is known for this sort of police conduct.

Although concerns of police brutality at the beach have almost always been present, they have been raised over the past few years. Police are widely known for conducting illegal searches at the beach and issuing tickets to those who are in the water and/or mud pit, where it was technically illegal to be. Some of the worst cases of police brutality in the past four years have included a man being maced for not having a fishing license and a teen aged girl being badly roughhoused for possessing alcohol (a report on the incident can be found here). Both incidents were widely witnessed. In 2007, community members held a session of meetings to address the growing concern over activity at the beach. Neighbors voted down a proposal to build a large parking lot, but voted in favor of graveling the path to the beach, cutting down additional trees to make the path easier to navigate for patrol cars, and installing picnic tables, a grill, and a lifeguard.

Hidden Beach

it would seem that the damn home association was the cause of the trouble here, you know just us rich folks can be here type attitude.

In 1995, residents in the neighborhood surrounding Hidden Beach used money from the Neighborhood Revitalization Plan (NRP) funds to hire off-duty police officers to patrol the beach more frequently. This was done officially through the Kenwood Isles Area Association (KIAA). The reasons behind this stemmed from a concern over illegal activity at the beach. Residents claimed that they were concerned with their safety and wanted to crack down on nudity, drug use, parties, and crime. It was also clearly evident that a lack of an official entrance to the beach represented a major obstacle for the park police to patrol and gain access freely. Patrons of the beach claimed that the wealthy residents in the surrounding neighborhood wanted to reduce or eliminate use by non-residents. Police publicly agreed with the beach-goers by reporting that crime was not any higher at the beach than it was at many other official beaches in Minneapolis. The Kenwood Isles Area Association pushed the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board for a solution.

and there is a law against foul language.

No threatening, profane, abusive, disorderly, insulting or indecent language, conduct or behavior, nor any act tending to a breach of the public peace, shall be allowed in or upon any park, parkway, beach, playground or park waters; nor shall any person play at games of chance, drink intoxicating liquor, or be drunk, or do any indecent, lascivious, lewd or improper act therein. (Code 1960, As Amend., § 1010.210)

OUr society isn't human anymore. The people in power and in government are so 'perfekt' that they can no longer relate to the general citizenry. Heck, half of congressman are millionaires. We live in a surreal otherwordly increasingly authoritarian slave-state. Welcome to the new world.

Soon they will even start gene-filtering babies. Yahoo. Can't wait. New world is great.

This world can't handle true freedom because it's in denial about its true self. The internet and technology has made us see things we're not prepared to see, so we overreact and this is result. We're as bad as the blowhards that invade countries and create more problems than originally were present because they're in denial about the full consequences of war.

Humans ARE deviation. And they're trying to destroy it. They're destroying humans.

It's written on the wall. Non-standard deviation has been deemed unworthy. No more will we work through the problem as humans might once have. We're becoming more like machines.

This is the beginning of the end of what humans are. We will combine with AI and cybernetics. What 'human' means will change from what it's now. People today will be seen as savages.

Funny thing is, they're more like us than we realize. They just happen to be in control. But had we been the ones in control, I doubt the circumstances would be any different. It's really sad.

The flaw may be universal in nature. Maybe all life behaves this way. Maybe that urge people have for oneness is the source of it. We desire to be one of one, unilateral hive mind.

Sure the guy was being a loud mouth douche but that does not make up for the "cops" behavior. The cops clearly put their hands on him without informing him, then decided he was under arrest for swearing. He then tried to leave, and even told the loud mouth girl to leave the cops alone and leave. He was actually doing the cops a favor at first, i believe that's why he got so pissed.

The cops are clearly in the wrong here, they lied, they decided to tackle a guy for calling them out and trying to leave. Sure the guy was a loud mouth and being a prick but the cops were more in the wrong, i'd be pissed too.

Also what kind of park is that? Looks like a national forest, more than likely they were tubing down the river and got out, then were harassed by cops from the looks of it.

I really loved the guy recording

I found the guy filming the event quite funny as well. At least he didn't get arrested for filming

Thank you for the post, my friend was telling me just yesterday that I was swearing to loud while telling a story in the park at an Islander rugby match. The police are starting to get mad at not being listened to, it can only get worse as the tension everywhere builds.

I thought it was funny when the girl got maced for
assaulting an officer, then screamed & cried that she
was maced like it was for no reason.
She's lucky it wasn't me. I would've beaten
her until she was unconscious. As a previous
poster stated, a simple "yes sir" will do.

A Cop buddy told me that they can arrest anyone whos voice breaks normal conversational levels under a little known ordinance in 99% of incorporated cities called "Breach of Peace" This allows them to detain you even if you havent committed any crime and you can get up to 90 days in jail for this misdemeanor. He claims it allows them to do their jobs more effectively. whatever.

You like to beat women unconcious? Which department do you work for?

No I wouldn't like beating anyone unconscious.
Man or woman, if you jump a person from behind
that is wearing a baton & sidearm well, good luck
coming out unscathed.
Those two officers in my view are as much to blame
as the guy & girl. Sometimes you have to pick your battles.

I am so sick of these "police brutality" threads. If a cop tells you that you are under arrest you submit. It's that simple. I refuse to feel sorry for some idiot who doesn't understand the rules of society. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time is something that most prosecutors can relate to. If you comply with the officers and cause no problems and have no major criminal records, the charges will usually be dropped. And the reason why so many officers are necessary to restrain a combative person like this is for the safety of everyone involved. Get over yourselves folks most cops are good people. And pointing to stuff like this as brutality is crying wolf.

I dunno about you all but me? ANYONE puts their hands on me before telling me EXACTLY why, AND, without having a legal cause?

Police are not required to tell you why you are arrested at the scene, only that you are under arrest. The rest has to be settled in court. If you attempt to leave, or otherwise avoid arrest, you are resisting and you allow them to basically beat on you until you comply.

That’s the way the law is laid out in this country.

Did you forget the /sarcasm? Or... Hold on. Back up a second...

Cops don't have to tell you why you're arrested? Seriously, are you kidding???

Please show me a state statute or otherwise stating that police have to give you the reason for your arrest at the time the arrest is made?

Here, straight from a “what to do if your arrested” website:

Flex your rights
No. Police are not required to tell you what you're being arrested for. Within 72 hours you have right to be brought before a judge or released. When brought before a judge, that's when the charges against you will be read.
Nevertheless, at the time of arrest, police will typically give you a basic explanation for why you're being taken into custody. Remember to keep your mouth shut and ask for a lawyer.

One reason is that the officer does not always have all the investigation done at the time of arrest to appropriately charge you. Another example: if you hit someone with a car and they die later at the hospital, the charges are going to be much different then they were at the scene.

The guy is obviously intoxicated and belligerent in a public park. That has got to be enough to escort someone away. He refused to leave, and starts fighting. Sorry, he deserved every bit of it. The cops acted professionally here. They did exactly what they are supposed to. I don't want foul-mouth drunken idiots in the public park when I take my family there. You can drink and act a fool all you want on private property. You go into public, there are rules of conduct to some extent. You can't be a raving drunk idiot for one. Fighting with cops who are trying to escort you somewhere is just a bad idea.
