Not good.

This was caused by a "lack of proper training?" Hmmm. I see a resisting, possibly drunk woman disobeying an officer. Even under the best of circumstances, subduing any suspect is not pretty. Maybe if she had obeyed the officers in the first place she would not have been arrested. Also, we get to see a snippet of the entire incident. What preceded this and what followed?

Police brutality and excessive force is just a way police official can do what ever they want because of a badge they are above the law and the brotherhood of cops know they can get by with it. Power and control is how they feel with that badge. My son was at a wedding party two tough so called women came from behind and pulled his hair to get him down ripped his clothes and of course arrested him as he was leaving the party, i had us marshalls at my door and neighbors and swat team saying he hit an police official no that is not what happened because they have a badge they can say and lie do whatever and of course police officers are always right. they can lie change there stories at any given time and not have to accountable; It is really hard to respect them. I know there are good ones out there but more bad then good.

Jeana, your comment that there are more bad caps than good is so far off. That is absolutely not true. YOU try doing this job, dealing with people that want to spit on you, kick or hit you, or worse and then see how you feel. A society that makes war against it's police had better learn to make friends with the criminals.

Far off, lady. You live in another world.
