    It is really sickening just how butal and hateful law enforcement can be against the people they're getting their pay from: … r_embedded

    The many videos reports I've read and watched law enforcement in action is simply nothing more then pure hate.

    Brutalizing people when they can't even protect themselves from the beatings brings back the days of prison camps in Germany.

      While this is wrong and shouldn't be allowed - how come no-one ever posts videos on Youtube of police doing nothing wrong, or people shooting at police, or people throwing things at police.

      I know a lot of very good policemen who are not brutal, who obey the law and use the force required in particular circumstances....

      ..when was the last time you saw a forum posting...

      "Look at this policeman helping a woman across the road...."

    You know, they say there its a fine line between being a criminal and being a police officer. Two sides of the coin.

    We have some very fine officers, and then those like you've showcased. I think it's time to stiffen the penalties for police brutality, and make it mandatory dismissal for even the slightest infraction. There should be zero tolerance.

    Is right We Can No Longer Turn A Blind Eye to how American Citizens are being treated by the very people they are paying.

      There are good officers we all know that but guess what they're aren't so good when they stand by while they allow other officers to violate the law.

    It's not about us are them in law enforcement, they should be working for the people and if they can't keep their attitude in check and citizens have to suffer for that then they are in the wrong job and we don't need them.

    I'm sorry but if an officer tells me to sit down, I sit down. She provoked the officer to use force and yes, he was probably way out of line, but she was acting out before the camera stopped recording. The fact that she continued asking if the camera was recording tells me that she wanted the officer to get in trouble. Unfortunately, there are people who will do anything, and I mean ANYTHING, to get attention.
    I'm not trying to justify the police, but it is clear that she wanted to get beaten. She's probably one of those people that like people to feel sorry for them. I've come across a few of those in my lifetime, and it's sad. The video doesn't show the police beating her. She might have cracked her head open by slamming herself on the floor. The black eyes... that's a different story, that was on him for sure.

       I guess you have your opinion but I don't agree with you at all.  Our own kids act up but we don't try to beat to the point that and Ambulance has to be called.

      She's not a kid SpanStar. She's a full grown woman. God knows why she got arrested to begin with. Officers put their lives at risk every day to keep citizens safe from idiots who think they can do what they please. I'm not saying he was right, but the film doesn't show him beating her, it only shows the result of their struggle. Like I said before, she could have cracked her head open herself. It happens to kids when they're wrestling each other in a playful manner. That's what I saw on the video, blood on the floor, and paramedics taking her out. Where in the video does it show that the officer is responsible for this?

        The woman was hand-cuffed and if you think the police don't beat people when they are helpless then there are plenty of links at the bottom to show they do.  People have a right to expect not to be treated like the are a victim of a street gang by the by police adult or a child.

          I agree.. I'm one who considers officers should have a thourough psychological evaluation every six months to keep their anger management in check. You deal with the garbage of the world on an everyday basis, you'll end up like them.

          However, in this specific video, he's not beating her. He didn't use force. I'm just saying...

            I tend to agree.  It looks like an interrogation room, with the camera recording what happens.  Then the camera freezes for a period (how odd) and the next photo is of the girl on the ground with a large puddle of something red.  The view changes and someone (or something) is on a gurney, being taken out.  The view once more changes to the girl with black eyes.

            The recording has very obviously been tampered with, with an additional sequence added.  By whom and for what purpose?  I rather doubt that the police added that sequence with black eyes, so who did?  Why did not the camera show any beating?  Somehow I doubt that any investigator looking at it will fail to ask the same question.

    It looks kind of strange indeed. With those type of beatings her eyes should be swollen much more. And she clearly tried to provoke him to do smth. to her. She should just comply, if she got to that situation of being arrested. She's got herself into more trouble and him too, I guess. But this video shows or proves nothing.

    For me it provides we as citizens have giving law enforce way to much control over other people because they've proven time again they aren't worth our trust when they won't even testify against each other for wrong doing because they are afraid of the blue color brotherhood.

    When you disobey a police officer they can use force to make you comply, but that is not the same as a beating. They are meant to use non-violent restraint holds and physical restraints to accomplish their goal.

    Citizens are forever under attack by law enforcement, because the police seem to think that no matter what they do, they cannot do no wrong. Egotistical is a prime word for most of them.

    This happened three days ago. This is the same highway I take to drive home from work. When you see stuff like this happening, you realize that there are good cops and bad ones. That A88h*le put a lot of people in danger and the police did a great job at arresting him without excessive force.

    You might have to type:

                  suspect wanted for assault on officer arrested after chase

    Miami Police did a fabulous job!

    Part of the caption underneath the woman who had been beat reads as follows:

    The officer claimed that the woman just fell down... The officer was eventually fired after an investigation showed the shocking extent of the woman's injuries from the officer beating her.

    I guess the lady's beating was no mystery for the police department that fired the officer.

    Looks like she has a broken nose which may cause her eyes to be blackened as a result.  Perhaps it may have resulted from hitting the floor face down, but I'm not making excuses for the cop either.  I doubt she would have been injured if she had complied with the officer to begin with.
