Even if....he just shot someone?Would you feel the same if this person was involved in harming you or your own child?Or worse ..murder?What scenario would justify this type of behavior?

So what happened before the video started? Trying to make judgments either way without having the entire story is not the correct next step. But, of course as shown in the San Francisco shooting incident, certain individuals will do just that simply out of personal prejudices and not from facts.
It dont matter, your innocent until proven guilty and cops do not have the right to chose sentences for criminals. So their is no justifications. A cop was holding him down while she beat his face in. You think thats right? If i was that man, I would have ended up with the death sentence. I would have sweepted her feet and beat her face into the pavement.
This is what the good old quick, hand on each side of her head, make a sharp twisting motion, neck snapper move is for. This is not an arrest, it is a farce.
I've worked in law enforcement (lawyer) for enough years to know that blame is not 100% for either side. It fluctuates, sometimes the police are in the right, sometimes they are not.
This gong show of an arrest lays at LEAST 50% of the blame onto those police officers, they failed to use their training. Nobody can deny that, because the police academy does not teach gang-beatings for any situation. Even if the man was ramped up on a drug cocktail the SOP is not a beat down. I know for a fact a beat down is a lazy pig's cop out.
Decorated honest cops have told me so;
"If an arrest gets to a point where it's a slug fest or all out brawl we have failed in our duty and training."
Add that to the fact its two on one, I'd definitely say the police hold some blame here.

If someone attacks you with a knife and you shoot them it is NOT considered self defence and you WILL be charged.
If a police officer THINKS you have a knife and kills you they will NOT be charged.
What did THESE guys do before this picture was taken to deserve this
"Resisting" arrest or not, if it were you or someone you knew and loved would you accept this type of treatment or not? That is the question
Why didn't he just stay on the ground? Maybe because some of us are getting sick and tired of having to Sit! Stay! and Obey! just like a bunch of dogs...
I can't speak for him but I can speak for myself had I been in that situation. I'd have been fighting for my life, meaning theirs were at risk because I would have been trying to stop the attack by causing complete incapacitation of my attackers.
A badge doesn't grant protection from self defense. Neither does it allow unlawful assaults on citizens.
I did not notice the officer on the ground at the beginning of the video. Very interesting indeed. But as many have pointed out in this thread, "who knows what happened before the video started" he could have tripped or been knocked to the ground by his baton wielding comrade.
My question is this, "Are police allowed to BEAT you (yes YOU) into submission?? If they can do it to him they can legally do it to you....... maybe even for dancing at a monument
I thought all police officers had pepper spray or O2, why not use that?
Do you really need to beat someone in the head with a stick 20 times?
Just because you have a lack of imagination and compassion for fellow human beings, and believe that a brutal, beating is the only way to control a person
doesn't mean that I have to believe or act that way.
