Sounds like a buch of bull **** excuses to me.

They wiggled the laws reasoning to adjust to the crime of the cop.

If it were Joe Public that treated a non offending, DOING NOTHING WRONG elderly person like that, they'd be locked up.

This man wouldn't be in the shape he is in if it weren't for his xenophobic neighbor calling, and an equally as ignorant officer handling the call.

Why has common sense taken a back seat to these types of encounters?

As more and more combat veterans returning from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are being hired by police departments across the country, you can expect to see this military mentality become more commonplace among police officers. People they stop on the street are not seen as citizens to be treated with respect, and in many cases no longer even as suspects, but as an enemy. Welcome to the New America.
For some of us, there's nothing new about America.

many people see "cops tv" today and think that is fully representative of the job.. its just a sliver

Are you a hater?

We need civil order for there to be society.. we need professional well trained highly vetted police for that.. we also need better solutions for use of force options.. police work can be very brutal..
America police are some of the best in the world given the social desires of our society.. one percent of police make it through all the parts of the process that shouldnt.. as I have said before one day you will talk to a drone and a robot

Society ultimately gets what it will pay for in all things
Do you believe these dash cams and similar videos have helped in discovering incidents of officer misconduct which otherwise might be unnoticed or not noticed early?

I believe I have used mine to protect myself from a least a handful of complaints in my career which could have been listed as unsubstantiated... no evidence either way...

Everyone is a police authority now after watching cops... there another sidevofvthe equation too... the one that happens 99 percent of the time... bad people found bad things ... thats the reality
Even if there was no camera here I doubt.. seriously doubt ...this wouldn't get covered up... too many house payments on the line.. anyway ..no stop isnt documented anymore.. caneras are everywhere

Cameras don't affect me in the least...

Have they uncovered "more" acts for the public to see..sure... what they don't reveal is a public that no longer respects anything or anyone...

Hell... film me 24/7... boring

I have already strongly condemned the action of this fired and crimiinally filed upon officer as unjustifiable ... based upon the video absent anything else I would have found him guilty of assault under color of authority... but I would also want to know why... what went thru his mind that allowed him to think what he did read even tactically sound... why would I want to know... so I could make sure my trainees clearly understood... went to go to jail.. do this

On my department as I have said this technique would be a use of force in a drag down donnybrook...this is not a technique he learned in any formal or accepted training program and would not be used against a citizen who was compliant or argumentative.. hell.. most people argue.. its teaching them to play nice that is the majority of the day..

Big payout on this one

Have never seen Cops actually dislike reality shows. Do not see why it was even addressed in your response. Rather stupid thing to do on your part.

You really did not answer the question except for this "Have they uncovered "more" acts for the public to see..sure..." but that is only a partial to "Even if there was no camera here I doubt.. seriously doubt ...this wouldn't get covered up... too many house payments on the line.." Do not know what too many house payments on the line means.

It was a straightforward question and you presumed a great deal, pontificiated, went on tangents in your response.

But ok, is is the Internet although I believe a genuine, professional and mature person as you portrayed yourself to be would have answered directly without antics.
