Police officer pulls a knife on a homeless man and slashes up the homeless man’s tent; hit only shelter.
Excessive force is 30 police cars to catch one guy, arresting him, and then dragging him like a dog across the pavement and pinning his head down with your knee in an act of domination. To the police, it’s a war zone out there. It’s cops vs everyone else. This is what they’re taught. This is why their behavior sucks. And incidents like this are indicative of that cop mentality, even if this incident is not quite as tragic is some of the others.
Excessive force was necessary
Springfield, Illinois police spokesman said this after the incident where they tazered an 8 month pregnant woman and slammed her to the ground. In my opinion, this is a blatant admission of guilt.
I didn’t realize that EXCESSIVE force was ever justified.(via beatyourselfup)
Three Florida police officers in Collier county beat man who wasn’t resisting. You can hear his screams for pain and him saying he’s not resisting.
Notice they keep yelling “give me your hands”, even though he was compliant. It seems unlikely that he was refusing to give them his hands.
They know that if they dog pile you, they can beat the shit out of you while yelling at you to do something they’re physically forcing you not to do so they can continue to beat the shit out of you, claiming that you were resisting.
Yelling out “give me your hands” while three cops pin you down and prevent you from moving, is just stage performance for the camera.
