Come on people were you all raised in such a sheltered life!?!?!? The guy was swerving all over the road at 4am in Vegas. The cops have every right to suspect he was drunk or worse, there were also multiple cops cars involved at the scene which means he did not pull over upon initial sounding of the sirens and he obviously didn't pull over on the side of the road as his car was still in drive when they pulled him from the seat.
The cop that everyone is saying kicked the driver in the head, was kicking out his arm as he was resisting being cuffed. Those kicks were not aggressive by any means and if you think they are than you have been officially sissified.
Grow up people this is the world we live in, there are bad people and good people, cops deal with both and they need to maintain there edge at all times.

While the police beating down on him were in the wrong, I can't help think that the man himself was also in the wrong. Why the HELL was he driving while undergoing diabetic shock? Surely thats reckless endangerment of other road users.
As a diabetic myself, I can tell you, while diabetic shock can be a fast onset, you get enough of a warning to pull over and stop the car.
DIabetic shock normally starts with a feeling of lightheadedness, that all diabetics come to recognise. Followed by a drunken sensation, then fainting, and finally, if untreated, death. There is at least 2 minutes between the lightheadedness and the drunkenness. Two minutes is plenty of time to pull over and stop, and eat something. All responsible diabetics carry some form of carbohydrate rich food for this reason. Its a myth that they should eat or drink sugar. While it will work if its the only thing around, its not particularly that good.

I just think that the cops need to understand that not every swerving car is a drunk driver.
