Police officers do not have an easy job. Keep in mind they are human too.
No one said police had an easy job. No one said they were not human. However, the fact that they have a hard job, and that they are human, does not give the liscene to abuse their postions of power.
This isnt a case of lets beatup the punks uneccesarily
It isn't? Then tell us what it IS
a case of. I am quite interested to hear why you think that level of force was justifed, and what the basis for that justifcation is.
...cops want safety and security...
If your going to make blanket statements, I'll do the same. Cops want power, not saftey and security. I can not even begin to tell you the shit I have dealt with and police for SKATEBOARDING. I've seen cops put skaters in hadcuffs, beat them, and then let them go. Nothing to do with security. Nothing to do with saftey. Everything to do with (abuse of) power.
Is the guy dead???? nope.....
as if to imply that the only way a cop can do wrong is to kill someone? How many people have died from police shooting first and asking questions later?
If u want to get mad at the cops for being overeactive in a violent environment then get equally mad at the idiots on the street who kill them without remorse.
Sorry, that argument does not cut it. Law enforcement SHOULD be held to a high standard of care than the common street thug.
