    He probably could have sued if he hadn't resisted arrest.

    That wouldn't have necessarily prevented him from winning a civil case if he so chose. There isn't a whole lot to sue on though, unless he sustained some sort of serious and/or long-lasting injury.

    True. It didn't look like the cops were using excessive force. They could have thumped him a little more if they wanted to.

    Arresting someone does not mean they are guilty of anything. The court decides that.
    If you resist, you will go to jail, even if you didn't do anything before.

    We don't know if this guy deserved to be arrested or not. The video doesn't show it all. It could have been disorderly conduct, public drunkeness or failure to follow a legal order.

    Resisting arrest can easily lead to assaulting an officer and that could mean some hard time.
    yeah the whole "What am I being arrested for?"...."Resisting arrest!" Nice, real nice.

    The cops should be fined and suspended for a brief amount of time for illegal arrest.

    Like that would ever happen ...

    I had a cop tell me that all "good" cops have at least one complaint by a civilian open in Internal Affairs the majority of the time.

    Why? We don't know why they arrested the guy. It could have been for public drunkeness or disorderly conduct. There are rules in stadiums and they were just enforcing them. Seems to me the guy brought it on himself and acted like he was intoxicated.

    Seems to me that the guy was cheering for the Jets. I kinda thought maybe that was legal at a Jets/Chargers game. Maybe we're rewriting the rules so that people can't cheer for the away team. But I haven't been notified of that being a problem. I'll have to keep that in mind next time I'm at a Chicago/Denver game rooting for the Bears. I can be arrested for cheering Cutler. Nice Big Brother world we live in.

    And how do you know he was arrested for cheering for the Jets? You just assume that?

    That would be unfair. I'd rather see you arrested for cheering for Denver.

    You assume the police are right. But even the people in the video who were right there were saying the man did nothing wrong and was merely rooting for the Jets. Cops can't just go around arresting people at whim and then allowed to charge people with resisting arrest when the initial arrest was unjust. The cops are restricted, not the People.
