    Police are allowed to chase you when you flee from the commission of a crime or if they have probably cause to believe you committed a crime.

    If they catch you they are allowed to beat you if you resist arrest.

    This all sounds quite regular and normal to me.

    Thanks for the update ZZ PUPPS .

    When you jay-walk you endanger not only yourself but motorists.

    You are a 100-200 lb bag of water that is very heavy and hard.

    A car hitting you would damage the car and also the driver.

    Plus when you jay-walk in the clear view of police you are flaunting the law and making a mockery of it.

    So, yah, don't forget to use the crosswalks. No sh!t.

    If you are going to jay-walk then I recommend that you look both ways first. Make sure there is no traffic. And no police around neither.

    Many moons ago I too was going to be cop. You could actually shoot cars being chased then but pay sucked. Now the pay is good but you get fired for calling a guy in a dress a guy.

    All I saw was some punk who the cops tried to deal with civily stupidly escalate the situation and the resist arrest. If that "outrages" you then go ahead and be outraged.

    No one gives a rat's ass.

    When the New York Times writes about the incident and all that followed on March 8, 2018, then yes. It’s news.

    And all y’all excusing the cop and explaining why he deserved a beat-down have yet to explain why he resigned, why his superiors found his actions inexcusable, why his civil rights were violated, and why the FBI is investigating.
