My gosh! Haven't people ever heard of an invention called a tripod? Or bean bags? Or telephoto lenses? Or shooting through a window instead of a screen!

I know, the police are supposed to respond to a suspicious male, dressed like a ninja, rapidly leaving the scene of a report of shots fired, by hugging him into submission! It's terrible that they should be concerned by a male carrying an illegal firearm, who has to their knowledge, already cranked off a couple rounds. They should've offered him tea!

I love how people start the videos after the police have the subject on the ground and try and act as if the person is just some harmless young man getting beat by the police. People, these people you see on these videos most of the time are either drunk, or hopped up on mind twisting drugs that make them very hard to control at times. The other thing civilians fail to understand is that police officers are TRAINED in the academy to strike an individual with kicks and punches if it is required. Bottom line we go home at night, whatever it takes. If you don't like it try the job yourself.
