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.
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.

So how did this warrant a news story?
