Man, didn't these guys ever hear of RODNEY KING?? This will turn out to be the best day of that "suspected car thief' life! He will be $$$$ on tax payer dime. Stupid, and based on this video (not withstanding something we can't see) totally uncalled for. These two need to go to prison.

After all that has happened over the last few years. They are going to have a TV Show called Cops gone wild ! The very few Stuped Thug Cops make the rest of us look bad. When they go to jail the good old boys will be there to welcome them.

I've been in law enforcement for a long time, in a department bordering one of the most violent cities in the country. I've learned along the way that when they swing at you, you swing harder, but when they run from you, a beat down doesn't teach them not to run, it teaches them to run faster. These cops don't deserve any consideration. Even if he killed someone in a car chase (no mention of this actually occurring) once he surrenders, he has to be treated properly. It appears the car thief may have division mates (2 discredited POS's). Thanks guys for tarnishing the badge. I hope that extra couple of wacks the guy got was worth it all.

Unforgivable! No attempt to cuff and take into custody. Those two deserve to be locked up...for a long time!

Exactly, once he was down he didn't even resist. he was just covering up. No one even tried to take him into custody. The Idiots were even still whacking him when more blues arrived. Its sickening to think idiots like this are still doing this crap. A person passing by would have been damn close to being justified in using deadly force against the POS cops. WOW.

" A person passing by would have been damn close to being justified in using deadly force against the POS cops. WOW" - One of the dumbest things I have ever heard. You do have the word Chief in your name? So JoBlow citizen with no training whatsoever is allowed to walk by two cops using force on someone and allowed to pass judgement on whether or not they should or should not be using the correct amount of force? Give me a break.

So if the bad guy was waving a gun and the cops were behind cover talking to him trying to get him to surrender and a "concerned" citizen like you described should be allowed to come up and pass judgement on the behavior of the police and escalate the situation and pull a gun because he feels the cops should be doing more. Same logic.

Would not want to work for you. No citizen ever has a right to "jump into the game". How many times have we had to take someone into custody for righteous reasons where there are people yelling let him go!

Sorry for the double post. Damn Firefox. Don't get me wrong, like KevCopAz said. All they did is add zeros to the check at the expense of taxpayers.
