    I do admit that most departments regs & procedures are stacked against the citizens, but little-by-little the pendulum can swing back back a bit. I suspect that's already happening - no departments want the political heat, loss of public confidence, and eventual financial loss that occurs when these videos surface.

    Remember, the SC copper was just indicted on Murder - that's a big deal. You can be sure his fellow officers are thinking a little harder about what circumstances are appropriate to pull the trigger. And thinking a bit more conservatively, I'm sure ....

    While I do believe that if more citizens video what police do, the situation will get better. My concern about the SC incident is that, while and indictment is nice......it's not a conviction. Indictment and conviction is two very very different animals.

    Cop did NOTHING wrong

    These kids were trespassing, and were clearly not compliant. They deserved to be arrested and the young men who tried to jump in are lucky they didn't get shot

McKinney police said in a statement they were responding to a disturbance "involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave," and that some of them were fighting.

    What we see is the lack of professional self control resulting in escalation instead of deescalation of events. Us policing is in really bad shape. Yes, that is so powerful, taking down a bikini-wearing girl. No doubt. BTW, did anyone notice the couple of guys roaming around in the video did nothing to help the kids or calm the policeman down?

    So he lost his cool and acted like a nut, which is not his job

    And that's why you said "Cop did his job"

    Admit it. You did a 180

    For what it's worth....I was referring to the cops beating up the mentally ill man.

    I actually looked at the video on youtube about half an hour ago. That made it pretty clear that the cop acted like an idiot. So, yeah---180.

    While the Chief used terms like, 'broke department rules & procedures', his actions were indefensible'- no mention was made of his lack of effective crowd control.

    Now that these guys are getting bad publicity & weeded-out, the next question becomes, "What becomes of his fellow officers who standby idly, partnering in the rogue officers actions through their inaction"?

    That might not be so excruciatingly critical in this case, but it often is in others.

    Yes, I agree.

    There are structural problems. (if there wasn't, there would less incidents and more convictions)

Not show up doing cartwheels, yelling and screaming, f-bombing everybody with a "flair of drama" about them, pulling guns and acting the fool, which is what we've all witnessed in this video?
    If you get rid of cops with a "flair for the dramatic" have fun with the explosion in crime.

    Hard not to see it that way when you look at the video. Of course, the kids acting like a mob played a part. But, the cop needs to be able to handle that without going Rambo.
