Lsherm: You'd think if a cop didn't want to get bitten he wouldn't shove his fingers in a detainee's mouth. Just sayin'.
charmingkiddo: Live in Seattle.It is NOT cold enough here to merit keeping your car running. The dude was obviously planning on stealing shiat, and him having a criminal records makes that plain as day.Did the officers handle this well? No. But I don't believe the guy they arrested was innocent given he had left his car idling.
Dinjiin: hipster city or not
ReverendJasen: No matter how progressive a town might be, law enforcement always attracts authoritarian douchebags and bullies.
RedVentrue: Dinjiin: On par for SPD. Not only to they "not have to be nice", they excel at it. Never understood how such a progressive city ended up with such a Gestapo-like police force.Progressive usually progresses into Gestapo.

We are about 2 steps away from Obama having Brown Shirts.Lucky for us St. Reagan was way WAY more progressive than Obama, you farking troll.Reagan didn't sign the 2013 NDAAYou mean the thing the GOP passed?You mean the thing they both passed and Obama signed? Looks like it to me.
Bit'O'Gristle: As a retired police officer, and I'm assuming most of the criminal apologists here have not been, this is excellent police work. His car was running, and that is a common tactic by criminals, as he is one. Suspects coming off the car when you are interviewing them, or a sudden flexing of the muscles indicates a desire to fight or run. So they put him down. And yes, he resisted arrest, and bit the police officer, and he got punched for it. He's obviously a dickhead, and anyone else in that position would just let the officers do their job, and move on. But no, he had to be a dick and resist and not comply. This was perfect police work, and if you can't see it, you have never worn a badge, or are a criminal apologist./high five to the officers for a job well done.
EVERYBODY PANIC: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Dinjiin: On par for SPD. Not only to they "not have to be nice", they excel at it. Never understood how such a progressive city ended up with such a Gestapo-like police force.You don't?? Seriously???Hey OC. People who want to live in "progressive cities" prefer little exposure to the real world. But if anything disturbs their bubble-boy existence, they are the first ones to scream for rescue by the police. Then things escalate quickly once those guys arrive, usually to the horror of the original complaintant.On a reality-based note... how yo getting by dude?

Seriously???+1 seems like no matter which extreme side you swing there is always a Gestapo-like police force
Koodz: Between the armor, steroids, taser, stick, pepper spray, and ability to call for backup, I can see no reason for a police officer to ever PUNCH someone. Yes, hitting someone with a stick is more likely to cause injury than a punch, but there's something so visceral about balling up a fist and punching somebody in the face. It's too intimate to be a police action. Does that make sense?
Koodz: At one point, after the officer questioned him about the number of keys on his key ring, Ocak complained, "Why are you being so rude to me?"Longley responded: "I don't have to be nice to you."Wait....what's the proper number of keys on a key ring? I have three. Is that too few or too many? I'd better stay out of Seattle just in case it's the wrong number.
duffblue: I was told by Fark liberals that the police could do no wrong and that I should turn in my guns because these brave heros will come to my rescue at the drop of a hat. It's weird there's such a huge disconnect between people like Weaver95 and reality.
Madbassist1: lack of warmth: Although, I think it has more to do with protecting the insurance companies from having to pay morans for letting their cars be stolen so easily.95% of auto-related laws (including the new ultra-strict dui laws) are about protecting insurance companies. Believe that, friend, cause it. is. farking. true.
kombat_unit: Warm up your car while shopping? Or getting ready to shoplift?
mhedstrom: These guys better not ever come to the mountains of Colorado in the winter. They'd have a whole lot of "questioning" to do with *everybody* leaving their cars running if it's a short enough period of time.
Arkanaut: Amateurs. NYPD would have just shot him.
jmr61: I'm no police apologist but if they cops want to handcuff you and take you to jail resisting them is stupid. You will ALWAYS lose. Go to the station quietly and sort out your problems with them through a lawyer.Idiot.
four officers took Isaac Ocak to the pavement after learning he had a prior felony conviction and had been tagged in the department's computer as being "assaultive to officers." However, the department could not provide an incident in which Ocak had ever been so.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: MerelyFoolish: Unfortunately, the law enforcement occupation attracts folks who are too stupid for business but with a bit more ambition than McDonalds employees. They are given guns and taught that they are above the law. Add to that a bit of protection money and a thorough indoctrination of which criminals are allowed to practice with impunity, and you have a bunch of thugs who are not really concerned about law enforcement.2/10
jmr61: I think some people need to RTFA:"At the time, Ocak was being questioned and was not under arrest, according to police Sgt. Sean Whitcomb. The incident escalated when Ocak resisted the officers' attempts to handcuff him for flight and officer-safety reasons, Whitcomb said."I'm no police apologist but if they cops want to handcuff you and take you to jail resisting them is stupid. You will ALWAYS lose. Go to the station quietly and sort out your problems with them through a lawyer.Idiot.
stlbluez: the kid cop was a bit of a smart-ass...
