Physical Arrest of Rutgers Student Posted To YouTube

February 08, 2011  | 


Four New Brunswick (N.J.) Police officers hold down a student while one punches him in a clip posted to YouTube from an arrest outside a nightclub.

"Give me your hand. Stop resisting," officers are heard yelling just before one punches the student four times.

Elliot Marx, 20, of Lindenhurst, N.Y. and Joseph Keepers, 21, of Edison were arrested in the incident. When officers arrived at a chaotic scene, 50 people were in the street outside a house party at Stone and Prosper streets. One officer tackled Keepers to stop him from kicking another person, and Marx jumped on the officers' back, reports The Star-Ledger.

The video, taken by somebody apparently in a nearby house, begins after officers wrestled Marx to the ground.

Looks perfectly reasonable to me. The problem is that the public at large have never had to try and handcuff or subdue someone who does not want to be subdued. Walk a mile in our shoes.
