Good. I hope they all get canned if they find that the department was letting a criminal officer slip on by because his daddy is the Chief.

Not one second of footage actually shows that those officers used excessive force. The man was clearly intoxicated. How does anyone know if he didn't resist, and or not attack the officers. How do you know what he was punching. An arm to get control of hands? So he punched!!! Belive it or not, many suspects who resist listen to comands. WTF is wrong with you people. Don't call next time. Let the idiot go and get hit by a car. And so what his father is the chief. Lots of officers follow in their fathers footsteps. After 20 years a guy is bound to have rank. All this nonsense. The reporter said the suspect was seriously injured. He got up just fine.

They were asked to make sure the suspect did not hurt himself. It does not look like the suspect was permitted to hurt himself. "Mission accomplished"

Hey Folks has anyone noticed that the vast majority of the video reports associated with this website appear to be anti-police.

They seem to be slanted towards showing officer in a bad light often time subtly suggesting officer misconduct or even attempting to show officers being pranked again in a bad light.

I don"t know why but look for yourself itsure seems that way to me.
