    I would love to see that too

    I believe the cops had a legitimate reason to arrest him. I doubt they did it for kicks. Cops are notorious for not making more work for themselves then they have to. They really didn't want to have to do the paper work on this guy.
    I'm sure they are notorious for not wanting to do paper work as they are notorious for lying. It's not that he refused and it isn't that he was a bother to anyone. The cops should have just realized that drunk people=unruly therefore they should have not touched him or approached him until he hit someone. And believe it or not the cops will benefit the most from this because he will have to pay a fine which cops are notorious for giving out.

    So the cops should have babysat the guy untill he assaulted someone?
    The guy was drunk and disorderly. The cops politely tried to remove him from the stands, he resisted and they used force to remove him. Hopefully the results of his trial will be made as public as the incomplete video.
    Most cops are honest, hard working, conscientious, ex military people. They are us.

    Rhetorical question, since we'll probably never know.
    Those were the charges filed against him.

    NO he wasn't disorderly. And it isn't wrong or illegal to be drunk, most people-his age-get drunk at least once a week. And are they all arrested?
    Besides it was a sporting evenet, so people are expected to be drinking. And drunk.
    Most cops are ex-military and has it ever occurred to you the type of people who join the military? Cops are not ex special forces or high ranking officers...basically the ones who need to think. So you are right cops are not thinkers, they are just brutes. And yeah there are good cops who wouldn't arrest someone for just being drunk. But the cops in the video they were not doing it to preserve order they were doing it just to bully.
    There are many police officers who become officers just to bully and that trend is only getting more popular. Cops do not represent me. The way they behave on most occassions is just wrong.

    .
    Actually they didn't arrest him for being drunk. He refused a lawful order to leave the stands. The stadium owners have the right to refuse service to anyone. The cops were just doing their job. There were 42 ejections at that game. Without police, American football games would be like european soccer games

    So how did this warrant a news story?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
