Here is yet ANOTHER example of the plague known as police brutality being caught on tape. This time in Trois Rivières , Quebec, Canada, a man
suspected of robbing a pharmacy was flees from the police on foot then he decides to give up and lays down in a surrendered position.
What happens next is absolutely disgusting, they proceed to beat the crap out of him.
Four police officers from Trois-Rivières have been suspended with pay over possible misconduct, CBC Radio-Canada has learned.
The suspensions follows an incident during their arrest of an individual suspected of robbery last week.
The officers had been called to a suspected robbery at a pharmacy in the Normanville district of Trois-Rivières early Friday morning.
The four officers then chased a suspect to an area near the Trois-Rivières CÉGEP.
It was what happened during the arrest that has brought the officers' conduct into question.
Of course it's never smart to run from the police as it's probably just going to anger them, but they are trained to act a certain way and must be
held to a higher standard than regular citizens and cannot let their emotions govern their actions.
This man was clearly not a threat and they continued to beat him for no reason that I can think of other than him running from them. I hope these 4
officers lose their job and are charged with assault and punished the same way a regular citizen without a badge would be punished.
This abuse of power by thugs with a badge needs to stop.
Due to those who believe this incident is fake I have found another video which confirms this to be true and was filmed by a security camera. This is
a mainstream source and "has no music". It also explains the incident in great detail with some background information.
They even kicked him in the genitals !

I'm tired of people attacking police officers just because they crack innocent civilians skulls open every once in a while.
It's a tough job, beating the living hell out of unarmed people who show zero signs of resistance.
They're here for our protection, after all.

Undue use of force is a form of assault. The police in this case should be charged with a Felony. A felony conviction should force them off the
police force. Maybe they could get a job as a mall rent a cop if they did not do a background check. This type of needless brutality (even if the
perpetrator is guilty) is a violation of their duty and I am sorry to say but there needs to be a few cases where the police are made an example of to
deter this in the future.
The only two things that stop me from pulling a million pound heist on a bank or jewelers to stop this grind we call life, or beating the # out of
some guy who bad mouthed me, is the fact I'd loose my family & the fear of living in prison...I ask my self when I see this type of behavior from
people who we pay to protect us, is why do the Police not posses this same fear?
There should be mass uprising and boycotts on Tax's when we see this, but no - We let it happen
You mean like the fake kicks and punches to the head and torso when he is clearly laying down?
Yeah, it's so fake
What would justify the beating he suffered in your opinion?
Look at the first kick like I asked you to.
It's clearly evident that it wasn't much more than a "tap". The "cop" even came close to tripping over the "perp" because he was trying to make it
look like he was really belting him.
Also, ZERO response from the "perp" the entire time "he" was enduring the "beating" ??
Really? Even the first kick. Imagine if that were you and you got "kicked in the ribs" - could you lay absolutely motionless? How about afterwards,
when "punches" occurred?
The "perp" is totally motionless. His body is limp. "He" doesn't even raise his arms to try and protect his face, or even struggle AT ALL... as if....
"he" is not a "he" at all..... "he's" a mannequin or dummy of some kind and this is staged nonsense.
I'm all for exposing police brutality. It's just that this one smells.
The only time the "perp" here shows ANY kind of movement is BEFORE that very obvious edit I pointed out around 25 seconds into this video.
ah SOLIDSNAKE101 i wanted to post that one but you're first
That case is from 3 years ago, video leaked this week and the victim's father wanted
the world to know what happend so the system could learn from it (prolly never will).
Only one officer is prosecuted, and all are still on active dudy all that time.
I'm shocked by this behavior !! to serve and kick the crap outta people !!
Well, I respect your right to disagree and have a different opinion but our perception of this incident clearly differs. From your two posts so far it
appears that you are hinting that this is staged or fake. There is enough reality in this incident for the officers to be suspended.
I am sorry but I cannot look at that video and think that it's over exaggerated. To me, it's very clear that they beat the crap of this guy and in
my opinion their actions were unacceptable no matter what the suspect did prior to this altercation.
There is no excuse for police to kick anyone like that, especially when they are surrendering. That kick that you say wasn't much of a kick appears
to be much more painful to me than you are portraying. Have you ever been kicked in the head with a frozen boot? I bet it hurts. Even if the kick was
"fake" the punches to the head immediately after were certainly real.
Perhaps the suspect was intoxicated and exhausted which is why he did not resist the beating as most of us probably would due to natural instinct. I
don't know about you, but I have ran in the snow while it's very cold out, and it is extremely exhausting which may be part of the reason why he
finally gave up. This city is north of Montreal. I wonder what temperature it was that night...I bet it was freaking cold!
What part of it would be fake and for what purpose, when cops are being suspended over it? If it went no further, this is still a black mark on their
files? (and the least they should get if all is as it appears)
I guess I'm just missing motive or reasoning of any kind to fake something here. The guy being beaten has no control to fake anything and the ones
who do have control may be losing their careers for it.

In fact it looks like the "cop" nearly falls forward trying to kick the "perp" almost as if he was trying to make it look like a hard kick and
then lost his balance trying to do so.

Have you ever tried to kick anything standing on snow/ice? You almost always fall over.
I'm not justifying the officers but the man clearly should be considered a threat.
I agree, that he should be considered a threat due to the reasons you mentioned but the situation must be assessed and acted upon accordingly, these
officers did not do so.
These officers abused their power and beat a man who could be considered defenseless due to the position he was in and the way he was outnumbered.
Perhaps they could have pointed their gun at him and told him to put his arms behind his back then cuff him...that would be a more logical approach.
Going MMA on him his not the logical approach.
I have edited my OP with this video for those who think it is fake. This mainstream outlet describes how the footage was taken from a security camera
and is very real. They also talk about the incident in great detail.
He was even kicked in the genitals!
