The guy was naked in the snow, was drunk and had been tasered already.

You tell me not one of those FIVE cops could sit on his legs, grab them, or otherwise subdue him, AFTER he was cuffed?

Why the beating with the nightstick?

The guy wasn’t kicking anyone or otherwise being aggressive. Why the kicks to the ribs? Really? Why the violence against a naked man whose only resistance was refusing to turn over on his stomach in the snow?

If there is such a thing as “excessive use of force” this is certainly it, in my opinion.

We don't see what happened leading up to him being in cuffs. We have no sense if the guy had been violent prior to that.

Once again, let's see the entire story here - the video starts in mid-stream.

I dunno, I think I side with dirtboy on this one. Dude was being a drunkass idiot. And you KNOW I'm no copsucker. :)

When there's crap going on that overreaches, you can COUNT on me backing citizens. This one might have been rough, but not excessive. If you are a drunkass idiot and cops got you, stay drunkass, and lose the idiot.
