    Not to change the subject, only to draw a parallel, but it's the same damn argument torture apologists use when people object to "advanced interrogation techniques."

    Sorry dude but when you're making an arrest the LAST thing you want to do is make an all day affair of it.

    You're the cop. You are in control. NEVER give the suspect control. You tend to live longer that way.

    Absolutely not. With that feeble a level of squirming from someone that wasted, I probably could have gotten her in cuffs myself and I'm smaller than she is. There was absolutely no reason to throw her on the ground, and even if there was, that is not how you go about it. You don't literally toss people head-first into the floor. The goal of a take-down is to make restraint easier, and thus the cop follows them down to soften their blow and also to keep both hands firmly on them. He just sort of tossed her. Seems the only goal was to wave his dick.

    People can die from head injuries like that and he needs to be charged with reckless endangerment at a minimum.

    I answered yes because the question on the poll is "Is this policeman being Brutal to this citizen". I would answer "no" to the question as worded in the OP, though.

    Of course it was, by very definition you have to use disproportionate force to effect an arrest.

    If both parties use equal force no one will win. And the cops have to win.

    Then go apply at your local police force and show them how it's done

    Oh. No. That is what I'm saying lol. Risk of injury is high regardless of intent. That is why you sign the waiver in the gym.

    I've dented the hoods of a few cars with the foreheads of drunks. Sometimes you have to take a more assertive approach to get the idiot to shut up and start paying attention.
    its funny that police cannot take a little more time with a citizen drunk or not to get them to comply and also use the same force they would use on a man..
    I find the lack of logic in humans most disturbing...

    Re: Do you feel this policeman handled this woman withen police guidelines?

    I made this thread.. I am very disturbed by the fact that people feel the police always have to use brute force to handle a citizen and be justified..also they are not smart enough to use their brains instead of their muscle..and on a woman too.....sad..i am a property manager I better not look crooked at one of my tenants and I own the dam property...I would never do a woman like that drunk or not..black or white
