    Trust me, I've been watching the show C.O.P.S. for most of my adult life. And yes, they show things just like your videos. 5 cops did not kick his ass. 5 cops brought him to the ground (which he refused to do) and cuffed him. If it takes ten cops to force compliance, then so be it.

    I'm thrilled you know what violence is, and yes, police do need to get violent with non-compliant suspects. It's part of the job.

    But let me test your honesty for just a moment. Do you believe that the officers in all three of your videos would have reacted the same way if only the suspects just obeyed their original commands?

    You know as well as I do that history has show corruption with cops in the past.. Some cops get into the business just to be an asshole, with their cocky attitude.

    It's interesting that of the three videos you posted only the second one depicts an officer actually doing something wrong. The other two show a suspect resisting arrest. If racist police brutality against innocent black people was such an epidemic then you should be able to find incontrovertible proof to back up your claims.

    Yes... but will you be honest and say that some cops can treat certain races different?

    We don't see it Ray..we are white people sitting behind our TV/ Computers watching cop shows .. We don't know what it feels like to be slapped around by a brutal hostile hothead..

    White guilt ^^^

    You admit that you don't see it or experience it because you're white and I assume, live in a nice neighborhood where there's few black people. So how can you be so sure what you're saying is true?

    Correct, and when they do, they are punished by their department. Some are sued, some just quit the job.

    But to say that these videos showed police officers in misconduct is ignorance of our laws and police work. Police officers do have the right to subdue a suspect in any way they can. Police officers do have the right to defend themselves from violent suspects. At times, police do have to get violent with suspects who don't comply with their demands.

    Getting back to the OP, what these football players have demonstrated is that they are ignorant of the laws in this country and our judicial system. They are not protesting anything wrong, they are protesting what they don't like.
