Why don't you show the whole story on the videos that were taken of him trying to get the gun of the female CHP officer that occured before LAPD arrived and kicked his rotten ass!

I remember watching that video on tv, we all know they cut out the parts they did not want us to see. I work in northern calif. and my G.O. has the same use of force that the LAPD guys used. Lets see, we ruined some cops lives and put them in jail. Gave the scumbag $3.8m because we don't want to support our cops, we might look bad. I can't think of one incident where a suspect got his ass kicked that would look ok to the news or liberal citizens of this state. I still can not believe how FU this was. I see that he changed with all that money. What a joke.
