    Excessive? Yep.

    Both of these are great points. The badge itself doesn't necessarily change a persons core personality, but the working conditions can impact their judgment in a negative sense and the way they interact with other people. Cops are still people who generally have very good intentions. Common sense says that you don't provoke the authority just because you have the ability, human nature works both ways and ill consequences could result. Respecting authority is almost always the safe bet, take your complaint to the department or the feds after the incident. Don't gamble that you can actually out-argue a cop on the scene and win. It will only escalate. Not saying the cop is always right, but you shouldn't deliberately bring down the wrath upon yourself.

    That said, some people have absolutely no business ever being cops. This case is an example of excessive and totally unnecessary force being used against a minor child with a smart mouth, nothing more. This guy should be behind bars, being held to the same standard the rest of us are.

    Unless you can a camera stashed away somewhere recording the whole event. Then let your mouth fly and become an internet star!

    Normally I don't really get to wrapped around the axle over articles alleging police abuse. But this one is just sickening. This 15 year old girl is basically just standing ther, probably running her mouth like troubled kids tend to do, and then kicks her shoes off out the cell door (probably after being ordered to do so). What follows is a full on assault that is completely unwarranted. If that had been my daughter, in jail for auto theft or not, and this happened...I would seriously struggle with whether or not to find this asshole show him just how protective I am.

    Scumbags like this make it so hard for the good cops out there to catch a break.

    It needs to get out there in the public that this stuff happens everyday. Police brutality is one of the countries biggest problems, but is overlooked, and is rewarded by its system. At the end, you see the sheriff (or whoever he was) didn't make a comment, because he did not want the public on his back that he agreed with what happened. This has to stop immediately.

    It's a matter of common sense that you don't diss a police officer, precisely to minimize your chances of being abused for acting like a jerk. However, that does not excuse a cop's using excessive force, or even verbal abuse (something my husband had to put up with during a traffic stop). If a cop is found to have used excessive force, then he should have to face the consequences: suspension, dismissal, or even criminal charges.
