    The handicapped man threatened the brave officers so they were forced to defend themselves with brutal force.

    crazy stuff

    nothing will happen to them either except maybe a lawsuit against the city. which the residents end up paying for in the end

    the cop that pulled the gun in dc during the snowball fight in 09 i think got a week desk duty :rolleye: after 6 months delays from the chief in taking action and constant bothering by the local media she gave reluctantly gave out info on it

    let's see a citizen in dc does the same. probably gets a 20 year felony conviction

    So it's ok to to slam a man to the ground after yanking him from a wheelchair? Your missing the point here, whether his legs worked or not it is still excessive force pure and simple.

    all we are shown here is a "disabled" man getting thrown to the ground. what we dont see are the events leading up to the beginning of this video.

    i dont necessarily agree with the cops here, but we dont know the course of events that led to the guy being "taken down".

    it may have been police brutality, it may have been justified. whatever the case, i doubt we'll ever know the true story.

    Definitely a chump move...even if they had to arrest him they could have stood him up, propped him up against a car etc. in order to get the cuffs on. Of course, we're only seeing the victim's pov...we have no idea what the guy was doing or saying to the cops before they grabbed him. Having said that, I know they never would've slammed an old white man to the ground like that regardless of the provocation.

    It just goes to show, you can't hide behind a wheelchair.

    Your brain's in a wheelchair because you believe in man-made Global Warming. :uhw:
