You apparently lack the necessary comprehension skills when reading something, therefore you should not be allowed to offer any opinion. The man did
NOT have a knife, and you are making yourself look more ignorant than you already appear.
Anyone who thinks this is okay is demented themselves. And the cop got a reprimand, but of course not for his actions toward the CITIZEN, but for
turning off his camera. If the man would have had a knife, I think the cop should have simply drawn his weapon, as that is what they are trained to
He knew the man didn't have a knife, he just didn't like the way he walked up to him. He viewed it as "aggressive." Another thing that makes it
blatantly obvious that procedure was not followed is when the cop gets him on the ground, and then keeps beating him in the face. He wasn't trying to
subdue him, he was trying to beat the crap out of him.
Then when the man tries to hold the cop off of him, his partner comes up and tazes the man in the face. That officer should be prosecuted as well.
This man did not assault a cop judging by the video, and that is why the family has gotten a lawyer, who will be out for blood, and will sue the crap
out of them, as well as probably push for criminal charges.
