No no, officers saw a metallic object in her hand.
We just don't understand what the officers go through day by day.
This kinda of thing has been on the increase in all major metro areas. Officers are trained to use overwhelming force...problem is, every situation does not justify overwhelming force.
Officers are accountable just like everyone else. We had several officers here in Houston indicted for using force well beyond what was needed...caught on video.
Yea, the burglar was/is a thug and deserved a good @$$ woopin, but not on the ground, several officers holding them down, handcuffed and each officer taking turns kicking the guy in the head and torso.
Just cause they are cops, doesn't give them the right to beat the crap out of someone after gaining control over them.
There seems to be an ominous trend where it appears that our military is becoming a police force and our domestic police forces are becoming a military.
Come on... we need to give ‘em the benefit of the doubt. The bad guys in both Houston and San Antone obviously did not have any dogs for the cops to shoot, which upset the arrest SOP.
It does give them the right to lose their jobs however. The problem is when you inculcate an environment of overwhelming force and the officer is always right you attract sadistic bullies. Such psychopathic tendencies need to be carefully weeded from the system or the public will loose its trust in Authority. Not punishing these well documented excesses taints the entire police force.
