I can just see law abiding pistol owners shooting cops just so they don't get that sort of treatment when approached
by cops at traffic stops, or wherever.

What state was this in? There's lots of Cherokee counties I think?

It's hard for me to give cops the benefit of the doubt. Once I was stopped for making a right turn on red. I sat there from 12 am-2am and when I asked the cop how much longer it would be, he answered me with "Do you want me to take you to jail right now?" It was a simple traffic ticket. I never will understand that. Yes, I made a right turn on red without stopping, I only slowed down, but the streets were completely empty, and I was just trying to go home from work.

And cops everywhere are wondering why people are resisting arrest.

I would use deadly force to prevent such a thing from happening to me.
The DA refused to press charges?
You can't be serious?
Was it one of his poker buddies?

Poor Bosh. Look at the circles under his eyes and you can tell he's been through hell,
I hope he wins enough to care for himself and his family,
That would be the bare minimum I might consider justice.
Be nice for that cop to get his karmic payback too though

All this over an unpaid parking ticket. Jeeeeez.........!!

Thank you!
There's a Cherokee Co Ga too I know.

I will never understand why cops act like violence is so acceptable.
Mental health workers have to deal with a lot worse than cussing and spitting and somehow very, very rarely hurt anyone. That's because they are taught that if someone is in your custody, it is your duty to protect them- and that they can be held liable for injuring someone, even if that someone is violent, because dealing with sometimes violent people is the nature of the job.

If someone is spitting at you, and they are NOT in handcuffs, you can pull up your shirt or jacket- and throw a jacket or sheet at their face. That's the kind of things that mental health workers HAVE to learn to do.

That and keep your anger tamped down by using a bit of pity. The person is sick, the person is out of control, the person is scared....ect. I know it's very different being a cop because the environment is not as controlled..(although admission environments can be dangerous with weapons brought in and stuff) but a LOT of it is mindset.....hurting people UNDER YOUR PROTECTION is NOT ok. Once those cuffs go on, or that person is locked in a cage you put him in, he's yours to protect.

The thing that irks me most is the officer's lawyer saying they did nothing wrong. They were responsible for a man suffering a permanent spinal injury. How could there be nothing wrong with that?

If they didn't do anything wrong because they followed standard procedures, then those procedures need to be investigated. There were other options available to the officers. Being physically violent should not have been the first choice.

There's a case in Rome GA where they stopped a young man for public drunk and tazed him right beside a drop off. The guy is paralyzed neck down, for life. After he fell down the drop off several feet he complained he couldn't feel his legs but they drug him up the hill. I think he was 19 or 20 years old. I read his blood test showed he wasn't even drunk.

The cops got 16 days off suspension and that was it.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. Boo hoo poor piggy got upset Bosh said some bad hoo hoo.

This is a complete assault of an American!! He's tied up like an animal...and as for the "he attempted to spit" BS story...when someone attempts to spit their head jerks back to create momentum of the saliva! There is ZERO evidence of that on this video.

I hope Bosh sues the HELL out of the County, the department, and EACH pig that assaulted him. Be prepared my fellow Americans...the cops today are being trained that we are slaves and if we speak up we are a threat to their power!!

Oh Xcatheter will always,always stand up for the violent out of control cops no matter how in the wrong they are. No one will call him on it because they will spend the next few hours responding to his baiting, belitteling borderline abusive posts.

I'll sum up his arguments so he can either go away or contribute to the thread in a positive manner.

"We don't know the whole story" *
"You don't know the law." **
"Show me where"***

*Who cares violence is the last option for men who have run out of ideas. Unacceptable is unacceptablePERIOD!
** 40,000 added just last year alone, who can? The legal system is not about justice or doing what is right, it is about entrapment and sanctioned theft by the establisment..
*** I don't have to nor should anyone else. If you want to make a stand on a subject then YOU do the research. This isn't highschool where you can bully the nerds into doing your homework.

No X is not my favorite person he is baitng and abusive and if there were an ignore function he would be the first one I put on it. Right now I have trained myself to pass over most posts with his avatar. On occasion a couple get through my internal filter.

God I HATE cops. All of them. Even if he did spit on them, which I doubt, this was still extreme and excessive. Those cops involved can burn in hell.

I think everything that needs to be said about this incident has already been said by the wise and observant ATS community here. Not much anyone can really add here, it's just another turd added to the every growing pile of law enforcement's abusive record.

I can add my opinion toward a solution, which is to "convince" LEO's like these that their actions will have consequences. I for one would find out the names of the cops beating me, then wait for them to come out of the local grocery store at night, and well.... you can see where I'm going.

Maybe if they didn't really believe they were "untouchable" they wouldn't "continue" abusing their make believe powers of authority.

It seems like spitting is now the universal defense for cops who injure those in their custody.
I pray none of these cops have babies at home.
"Your honor, the child spit formula at me so I was forced to subdue it with my taser"

Pathetic if you ask me.

Well I'd have challenged them to produce the evidence, in the form of a spittle sample from the alleged incident - but only in the aftermath, so they don't have the opportunity of equipping themselves with one forcibly at the time to set me up.

They are scum!

Well, this guy apparently accepted a settlement for $350,000...

If that video has set a precedent, I think he'll win.

I'll bet they fine you more than that for underpaying your tax bill!

Tell me this is what it means to be innocent until proven guilty?

That only applies at trial. Not before the trial or in jail.

posted on Jan, 13 2012 @ 11:58 AM
These criminal cops are not even stating that he actually spit, they state that he was "prepared to spit".

Update to the first video:

They violated this man's basic human rights, destroyed his ability to live a normal life & with it his family's financial future; and for what? A traffic ticket and psychotic cop's inability to control his rage filled delusions of Godhood.

I can't get over the fact that they brought him in for failure to pay a traffic ticket - which is theft in itself and then slam his head and break his back. Even if he's faking that move to bring him head first in to the ground was disgusting. Not much more to be said. The only that should be treated that was is the jailer involved.

Wow, I could not imagine how much that hurt.

We need a cop on ATS to help us explain that if there are any.

I miss that Cop in the Norman Rockwell painting, of the kid and cop sitting on stools at the malt shop. Too bad that cop had to retire. Now we have Jackboot thugs.

for two day's now i've been watching american cops on youtube kick the # out of people they are meant to be 'protecting'

I am genuinely considering a karma campaign. In fact if there is a 2013 and these guys are still around I'm going to find out where they live and dish out a little payback,,,, I should easily get a good few before someone finds this post and traces it all back to me.

That's not a beating... I worked forensic corrections for 4.5 years and quit because of the beatings I've seen. Hard to take when your a nurse helping people. But you have no idea what these guys put up with. I would get at least 3 death threats before I was half way through my shift. My wide even got a call from the jail letting her know that they know when I'm working and when she's alone. Hard life. Hard to justify to outsiders too. Every time an inmate gets put in a cell the tape is reviewed and the inmate has the option to press charges and let it get worked out in court. somebody needs to manage these fellas. Give them some slack.

No fire them if they break the rules, I have a tough job to but that don't give me the right to break the rules and if I do at my job I get fired. That was 100% police brutality and there was no reason for it and that seriously looked like it hurt.
