The body slam appears to be a little out of left field. Even the officer admits on the video that the guy didn't understand a lick of English. The suspect gave no indication on camera of resisting so my guess is the Officer is out of line. The suspect wasn't even pulling away. I like how they continue to ask him questions in English knowing he has no idea what they are saying. You can hear the Officer trying to justify his actions on the video but there was no sign the guy was resisting in any way.

completely out of line for officer to have taken the subject down like that. I watch every video i can that involves officers because I myself am a officer and have been for 8 years. even if the guy was trying to take a step forward who cares, hes cuffed anyou have a partner next to you to assist. man i hate to see brothers in blue make bad judgement calls that ends their career and or give the rest of us a bad rep. use force when you need to... and when you do it will be justified, its as simple as that.. be safe watch your 6 out there guys.
