PHILLY

Of course, if these THREE men who are being viciously beaten by FIFTEEN policemen are PROVEN guilty of the crime by a JURY, then let them burn!

But videos such as this police brutality not only cause me to become physically ill, but also anger me and frighten me to death!

Thoughts please.

This is the story about it:
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- More than a dozen police officers...

This is the actual video:

15 Philly officers taken off street after videotaped beating

What's the rest of the story?

Thought, that looked very unnecessary.

I thought I had put up the link as to what exactly happened. Here it is:

Yeah... those officers lost it. They ran up to the vehicle and pulled the guys out. If those guys were armed, then the officers would've kept their distance. I still don't know what caused them to lose it, but that video definitely shows abuse of power.

That's my point, the cops would have had every right to viciously beat them up as they did, had they been trying to fight them back, but they weren't. In fact, they were lying flat on their bellies when these countless thugs nearly beat them to death!

When I see stuff like this, I don't really feel like I want to hear the rest of the story. It actually doesn't matter what happened before that, because the beating the cops gave was unnecessary in response to it. *NOTHING* justifies a beating like that short of an active attempt to overpower an officer with deadlier force, or when the officer is outnumbered and must fight for his life to control the suspect. 15 against 3 is not acceptable here. There are no guns, and the only movement the guys in the car were doing is a response to being gang beaten, which is sort of an expected reflex. It deepens my hate for the abuse that police engage in, and I hope the justice system finds them guilty and does worse than slap a fine. Cops have no self control anymore. They're letting anger rule their behavior. This is why I don't mind when a civillian wins a confrontation violently with a cop.

Philly, your cops in the video are the pigs in the truest insulting sense. It's too bad they got out of it with less injury than the suspects, and I hope you nail 'em properly for it.

You'd think they'd have learned by now from the stupidity of the Rodney King incident.

Live videos like this literally make me want to vomit. They look like a pack of thugs, or vultures gaining up on one man who is already down, and literally beat him close to death.

They say they sometimes lose control because of all the things they see. I sometimes lose control also, but I've never in my life wanted to beat anyone up.

What's so horrible about things like this, which happen more often than we can imagine, is that they always get away scott free!

I use to think cops were as close to God as possible, who were cool, calm and collected. Is it any wonder after seeing so many videos such as this one, that they frighten me more than a hardcore criminal?

Cops that use the excuse that they lose control because of what they see don't belong in a police uniform. The difficult part of being a cop that most of the pigs can't master is simple SELF CONTROL. Because it makes them angry does not give them an excuse to lose control or take out their anger on someone because it enraged them. That's bullshit.

I'm also disappointed that as an officer of the law, they can hypocritically get away with worse actions than the civilians they penalize for doing the same thing. They get wrist slaps for their brutality. I sometimes am comforted by the notion that many of them (but not enough) will die violent deaths in the line of duty for choosing their profession and abusing it.

I've seen a few cops that showed great judgement and restraint when confronted with a vulgar, abusive or physically violent weaponless suspect. I always marvel at why they didn't immaturely or short-sightedly become violent or verbally abusive (cops have the fastest and cheapest habit of making verbal threats which end up as authority abuse) like most of the cattle they work with. I gain a new respect for the very very few that can apparently remain human in a profession that seems to thrive on inexcuseable behavior due to poor training, poor screening, and weak minds who are given too much power.

There's that common survey question that goes around that says "If you could kill a human and face no punishment for it nor ever be caught for the crime, would you?" and my answer is: "Yup. Guilty cops."

Ayi Sweety Pie, there's nothing funny about 3 men getting beaten to a pulp by a mob of cops. So unnecessary when the men were already down on the floor. If they are guilty, let a judge and jury judge them for punishment. It isn't up to these vultures to do it.

last time I checked, cop killers/wounders rarely get arrested...these guys were lucky they weren't "Shot while resisting arrest'...there was a guy around here who shot three cops with an AK-47..his stoner cousins sold him out to the cops who ambushed him while he was in the toilet. The way the cops tell the tale, you'd think it was the gunfight at the OK corral..

Ya Savanah you are right
Ya Savanah I seen that on TV. It really made me sick, the one cop was kicking the one guy that was being held down and then runs around the car and starts kicking the other guy that is being held down and you know I bet they get off
And will charge the guys with resisting Arrest and assaulting a police officer too. That is besides the shooting for witch I am sure they are guilty

Re: Ya Savanah you are right
Yes, it made me sick, too.

I'm sure they are guilty, but a jury should decide, before these (thugs) cops beat them close to death!

Re: Ya Savanah you are right
I guess that is what I was saying too,
What I was saying is I am sure the cops are guilty of abuse. having been involved in situations like this, I know there are better ways to handle things then this!

My thoughts on this? Besides "What the hell were they thinking?"

Years ago, when Rodney King had the same thing happen to him, what was the outcome? Black men rioting in the streets, calls for the cops heads, and so on...

What really happened afterwards? Cops got "sensitivity training", more cars got cameras and sound recorders, etc.

Then recently the 3 cops that shot over 50 times at Mr Bell and were cleared of the shootings recently. Whats going on now? Black men rioting in the streets... ok, no riots, but Al Sharpton got arrested.

Either way, if they are found to have used excessive force, more people in that city will know that they can do what they want, more or less, because now the police will be afraid to use any force or they're going to get video taped and accused.

Then there's the thing that happened down here in Ft Pierce. Black kid out past curfew doing something stupid and the cop stops her. He tries to handcuff her for a while, repeatedly telling to stop resisting arrest (I think he was just cuffing her to turn her over to her parents) and finally when she bit him, he punched her once then maced her.

Now tell me that you could have kept your head and not punched the person who was acting like an animal and biting you and I'll call you a liar. He kept his head and only punched her once... I probably would have knocked her out for it.

And of course, the race card was pulled, "excessive force" was said and so on... He was still cleared of it since it was video taped and proven to be neither.

Sorry so long, just my thoughts on it.

The Rodney King videos I've seen are plain police brutality.

As for the sensitivity aspect of a cops job, if he can't contain his violent acts like a human being, then he should get out of the business. We all have highly stressful jobs, but we don't go around beating someone close to death.

All the video I've seen, there was absolutely no cause to continue the vicious kicking and beating, since the man is obviously lying down in a fetal position, trying to protect himself against the vicious kicking.

Of course, cops have every right to fight back and beat a person who is trying to bite them and kick them, but the videos I've seen, haven't been the case.

I must say one thing about El Paso. We have the best police force in just about the whole country. There has never been police brutality, and anyone who has committed a crime, they catch. Too bad these cops (thugs) I keep seeing in live videos don't conduct themselves and their out of control tempers like our El Paso police force does.

Don't ever appologize for your long thoughts. I welcome them, besides, they keep me thinking! :o)
