    Another proud moment for the Government Street Gangs and the scum on the West Coast.

    I saw this video earlier this week. Definitely a "respect mah authoritah" arrest.

    It does look bad hogtieing a fan and hauling him out. But did he not bring some of this on himself?

    First of all, why do out of town fans need to be the most vocal animated fan in an arena? Have seen this over the years. Even gone to an away game and seen our own fans just going nuts in the crowd. While at home they would be much more subdued.
    I think there is a little commonsense missing here. At an away arena where there are thousands of opposing fans drinking alcohol and you decide to make a spectacle of yourself , what do you think the reaction is going to be?
    If the cops hadn't came in when they did there would have been eventually some beers flying in on the guy and everyone around him.

    Then to be further idiot he decides to resist them. Come on, what do you think the 8 or 12 cops are going to do. "Let him go boys, he is just too strong for the 10 of us".
    good grief.

    There might be more to it than the video shows. There is some missing time between when he is cheering and the cops are cuffing him.

    Yeah um you are so wrong it isn't even funny. Its people like you that the police can get away with practically anything. Apathy is a bad thing.

    Resisting arrest is the dumbest thing a person can do. It pretty much gives the cops the right to hurt you. Like pointing a gun at one gives them the right to kill you.

    It shouldn't be that way especially when there is not a good reason for the arrest such as this case. If he was a wanted criminal or had a warrent for his arres then it would be understandable for the police to use force. But the force they exihibited in the video just shows that cops are nothing but cowards who rely on superior numbers to abuse innocent people.

    If I was being arrested for not doing anything wrong, I would resist absolutely and if it wasn't for the simple reason that they can get away with anything, I'm sure you would as well. If you don't then just continue to play dead.

    A rational person will not resist. When a guy resists he is putting the cops in danger and they have the right to protect themselves which may result in hurting the guy. He may have been innocent of any crime but is guilty of resisting arrest. So the only ones that win when you resist arrest is the cops.
    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.
