It's long, long past time we put every cop in the country on trial, convicted them all, sentenced all of them to death, and executed every last one of them.

/RICO... if one is guilty, all are guilty.

Yet again, horrendous behaviour. But did she actually lose the eye?

What happened in the hallway?  That jail needs more cameras.

The officer is still employed and has not been charged with a crime.

Could you swing by Montreal after you're done? Could you also toss in every public official and school board administrators too?

Doesn't matter.   She was not resisting when the officer shoved her in the back.

I hate that the fact that a person is small is used to make the crime seem worse. Would it be OK if some assh0le cop broke the face of a large drunk man?!?!?!

And the cop should be put on trial and sent to prison. He was clearly not in danger and this was not self defense. It was a plain old "You annoy me and I am a cop so I am going to kick your ass" event.

If I was a cop and I knew someone did that, I'd smack him around with a nightstick and throw him in the hole myself.

How can his fellow officers not be mortified by that behavior?

THIS.

No matter WHAT happened in the hallway she was well under control when this bully threw her face first in to a bench.

This is exactly the kind of person that should lose his job and never be a cop again.

What a pleasant peace officer.

Obviously, the woman deserved it because while she was in the hall, a group of motorcyclists surrounded her in a threatening manner and she ran over one of them while she attempted to flee.

The morale of the story is that if you're shiat-faced drunk, do not pull over to the side of the road to sleep it off. Get that shiat home.

Thin blue line. Us against them.

It is a really big problem. Cops protect other cops even when they are in the wrong. A cop that protects a bad cop is ALSO a bad cop and since virtually all cops do this virtually all cops are bad.

It's a cultural problem among police and this attitude is rapidly causing them to lose support of the general public.

I grew up in the 70s and we were told to always look for a cop when there was trouble. Now many kids are advised to mistrust cops and minimize contact. And it is good advice.

I know right?  She did the right thing in realizing she was too drunk to drive and the end result is arrest?  WTF?

Obviously he felt threatened and had to quickly get her into the cell for his protection.

Operative Word: emboldened.

This is what happens when a schoolyard bully grows up. He decides to embark on a career that allows him to get paid to do what he has done since he was a kid. Granted, not all cops are this way. I have personal friends on several police forces, and they are the salt of the earth. However, I also know of several such examples of this type of scum. It seems like police forces/peace officers draw a higher percentage of this type.

I grew up in the 70's, but my dad WAS a cop. He instilled in me from a very young age that 90% of all cops are assholes and to NEVER trust a cop.

His stories about cops who got off on beating up "suspects" and laughing about it with the gang afterward weren't the exception.

Make no mistake: Cops are a legalized gang and we've done nothing but extend their ability to skirt the law to their own ends the last three decades.

Stop resisting...

2013-10-11 10:27:32 AM
she was out drinking and driving. She didn't care for my family or for me that night, did she? If she had been at home where she belongs instead of breaking the law, she wouldn't have been in the cell in the first place. Anything that happens from that point on is on her. Cry me a river.

and it's not like she was that hot to begin with...

that's usually like 99% of the case when it comes to police brutality especially once the person is insidea vehicle or the building.

That seems a pretty farking stupid statement, first because terrorists don't kill many people despite the out-sized reaction they get from politicians/media/paranoid people with no sense of perspective, and secondly cops killing people is one of the things we expect them to have to do occasionally, because plenty of violent criminals don't response to polite language and a firm tone of voice.

Shoulder mounted cameras on all cops, active the entire time they're on duty. We as the public should be demanding this, for our safety as well as cops'.

Here in Oklahoma City the old county jail had an elevator as the actual jail was on the 3rd floor. It was like a freight elevator (yes, I had the privilege of taking a ride in it once). It was well known that many suspect would attempt to escape while on the ride from the ground floor to the 3rd floor. Many a suspects had to be subdued in that elevator. The most notorious case was a dude that walked into the elevator on the ground floor and by the time it got to the 3rd floor he never walked or talked again. They beat him nearly to death. Good times, good times.

Would be a lot cheaper to stop recruiting so many asshole bullies. Or more stringent psych evaluations. Or better conflict resolution training.
 
2013-10-11 10:42:11 AM
Not sure if this excuses the force of the shove, but did anyone else notice that she grabs the doorframe and is pushing back from being placed in the cell.  I don't think this is a case of the officer randomly throwing a person into the room, but misjudging the amount of force to use when shoving a resistant prisoner.

She could have tried to assault someone in the hallway, he pushes her into the cell because she'll come at him otherwise, and she gets a natural 1 on her dex check.

Unlikely, but not impossible.

Personally, I'd like to see police procedures changed to the point where most crimes don't even require a trip downtown. Serve and protect, not beat and punish. You get popped doing a DUI? The local cop should drive you home, the Statie should toss ya in the squad car and drop you in the drunk tank at the end of the night.

Drug dealers.  Congress.  Wall Street.

Police seem to have gotten worse, largely because of the war on drugs, but try to maintain perspective.  The big problem you have with cops is not their lawlessness, but that they get away with it.

Exactly.  This tape proves nothing.  *SOMETHING* happened in the hall that caused the cop to throw her back in the cell.
