Blatant abuse of power and use of excessive force against a citizen who was just victimized under the guise of "Marine Pride." Let's all applaud this cop's own total disregard for the rights of a citizen HE SERVES and make another thread later bitching about cops doing the same to someone else.

While the kid is aggravating, the cop needs to exercise some professional restraint. He - like far too many cops - need to remember that they're a public servant. This seems especially rampant on smaller forces, where there's less supervision and less to do.

And all of the "once a Marine always a Marine" BS is fun when you're kidding around, (unless he's in the Reserves) this cop is not a U.S. Marine - he's (allegedly) a former Marine.

So what if he balled his fists? Doesn't mean he was going to attack the officers. He CALLED THEM for HELP because he was being assaulted and robbed and the cops took 45 minutes to respond.

The cop had absolutely ZERO reason to attack the kid other than he was annoyed.

If that's the kind of authority you want to give the police in your neighborhoods don't come bitching when they do the same to you for crossing the street in the wrong spot.

Instead he had to proce his badassness as a marine and then start to cover his trail and care if he did do harm to the citizen after. I think the cop is a massive peice of.shit due to his actions.

The cop should go back to playing LL cool J like the jungle bunny he is. The kid should get his ass kicked every time he plays the "U.S. solider" card.

I can't speak for you but I sure as fukc am not a slave and they sure as hell aren't my master. This is still America and that cop was way the fukc out of line.

There is not a single human being in this country that is legally authorized to use force against another human being because of harsh language.

You're simply backing up the unlawful conduct of a police officer simply because he has a badge. You're pathetic.

Unlike you I believe in the Constitution and swore my life to uphold it. If that means going up against two cops who think they're the baddest mother fuckers on the block putting a beat down on a VICTIM of a crime than so be it. I will gladly jump in to protect that individual against a cop who has obviously forgotten his oath and the purpose of his job.

I also find it extremely entertaining that you're defending that cop for brutalizing a citizen because he was upset. You would've hired a lawyer and sued the fukc out of that department if you were the robbery/assault victim and were beaten down because you spoke harsh words towards the cops that responded 45 minutes later.

Like I said... Absolutely appalling that people support this kind of conduct from our law enforcement.
Not to get into a huge debate but if you approach a cop in an aggressive manner, which the kid did proven by the video the cop can stirke first. He doesn't have to wait to get hit all he has to do is believe that he is going to be hit and he is allowed to respond with force one step higher than he is confronted with. 100% legal and support by case law all the way to the supreme court. It's his attitude after the fact that needs alittle work, but even then its not out of line. And I could really careless if that weiner called them for help, many officers have been murdered by the assholes that have called them for help. And that cop didn't beat him down, he delievered one open hand stun and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. The kid was not bloody, and he was not bruised except for his ego. If all I had to go by was the video I was say the cops were justified in their actions.
