WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO REMIND OFFICERS TO FIRST GO BY THE BOOK DURING ARREST'S AND SECOND IF YOU CAN'T CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS THERE WILL BE A CAMERA DOCUMENTING EVERYTHING YOU DO.

I don't like to MMQ other officers, but I don't see a scenario in which this is an appropriate use of force. He's tazed... He's down. Did he try and harm an officer? Or are they angry he made them run?

Not a nice video. Personally I like that we have the public's attention, just wish it showed us in a good light.

EVERY officer can go over the line or over-react to a situation. ONE TIME might be able to be explained away as a control but this is certainly not acceptable. If you want to hold him down with your foot, that is ok, no problem. The video is really poor, but during part of this, it looks like he is handcuffed.
But I reserve my final opinion until the reports come in.
