The asshole needs to be sitting in prison....for a loooong time...
Because they are confrontational and disrespectful to any authority. They ain't too bright.
This happened in August of 2017 and now its news?
IMHO, many people of the ethnicity in question are defiant toward authority (police officers, teachers, managers, etc.) because they are very angry and hurt people.
They are still hurting from the discrimination that they (or their parents and especially grandparents) suffered. (Even President Nixon said that it was a shame that people of that ethnicity could not walk into any restaurant and have a meal like any other American.)
In dealing with them (especially young males), one must be very careful. A smile would help. Don't yell at them. Show them respect. Say "Sir" and "Ma'am."
About ten years ago on the Los Angeles subway, I saw a law enforcement officer ask a young male of that ethnicity to show his ticket.
The young man replied something like: "No, I will not show it to you. You have not asked the other passengers to show you their tickets!"
The law enforcement officer just walked away.
Yes, like it or not, people in authority have to know when to turn a blind eye.
In fact, many police officers are already ignoring "minor" infractions.
In the case of the person mentioned in the OP, it would have been better to have just let him jaywalk.
Of course, if a car had hit him, then his family would have sued the officers for NOT having stopped him from jaywalking!
Let's face it: In 2018 America, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.
My advice to educated young people: DON'T go into professions where you have to deal with the defiant.
Jaywalking is a gateway crime.
"In the case of the person mentioned in the OP, it would have been better to have just let him jaywalk."
They did - twice - and just asked him politely to stop and use the crosswalks. On the 4th time (after he came out of a bar) they interceded. He was talked to politely, became belligerent, was given his choice of punishment (ticket or arrest) and he chose to ultimately run away (evading arrest) after specifically being told not to move.
The resultant altercation was brought on by the the perps deliberate actions. When caught, he then resisted. Excessive force was not used. The force used was that necessary to subdue a fleeing fighting suspect. Once the cuffs were applied, the use of force stopped.
The true racist are those who can only see skin color as the only ones being victims. When it is issues like this that continue to fuel division. When if msm would title it TWO COPS BEAT A MAN........ why is the public so dumbed down they can not pick up on mass brainwashing that is being done to the public via MSM BS.
but they just have to fuel it by saying " white cops on a black man..
Where in the hell are they ( leftist liberals) for the WHITE FARMERS in S. Africa
J walking THREE times?
Lucky he wasn’t shot.
LOL wonder if you 'd say that if your kid was shot for doing that, or how about your parent(s) brother or sister.........
I use my baton at work quite often, however I have never had to beat someone with it.
Normally when "they" see the baton come out they are smitten with fear and they freeze.
So my first question is "what happened in this case to escalate from drawing a baton -- which itself normally solves the problem -- to beating someone with it?"
We are always reminded to behave as though we are being recorded because we probably are.
