    The only thing I don't like about it is that there were two Spanish speaking officers on the scene. They should have tried to communicate with the suspect and did not. Other than that, however, the police probably acted pretty reasonably, based on the facts as I read them in this article.

    However, I don't think that resisting arrest charges should have been filed, under the circumstances.

    Assuming the testimony is accurate, it appears there were errors on both sides here. It's understandable how and why this happened.

    That's pretty much the way I see it.

    What "errors" did a man who does not speak English, or even think like an adult, make?

    Kicked in the door, then he evaded and resisted the police.

    He did not kick in the door. As for evading the police, he hid in the bathroom when a bunch of people he never saw before broke into his house.

    Yes he did kick in the door and everyone knows who the police are.

    Bet he was high.

    They spoke Spanish to him and he still didn't answer. Where did you get the idea he can't think like an adult? I didn't read in there that he was retarded.

    You need to bear in mind the cops had no idea who he was and since he didn't answer them and hid from them they naturally assumed he was an intruder, as you and I both would have as well had we been one of the police officers.

    Believe me, I'm a big civil libertarian and a strong critic of the methods deployed by law enforcement, but they need to be given some reasonable latitude. From what I have read, I don't believe the police were solely at fault here.
