Sorry, no sympathy for the guy from me. I know this is going to make the pro-legalization libtardtarians melt down, but that’s tough.

Your headline is a lie, on an unlit highway a guy attacked a lone cop and fought him for an extended time while simultaneously trying to destroy evidence and he died from the struggle after a lengthy fight.

The war on drugs has become a monumental embarrassment for law enforcement. A death sentence is now okay for noncompliance? If you don’t spit the drugs out, we’ll choke you to death?

Did you watch the video? The lone cop is trying to cuff the guy and the guy starts fighting and trying to destroy the evidence, in a struggle that long against a young man that large someone can die.

Some people NEED killing. Maybe he was one of them.

They could stop if you can get the evidence into your mouth, then they can take off the one handcuff that they did get on you and let you go on your way. the arrest, the fight, the destroying of evidence all forgotten.

Incorrect headline.

The perp died accidentally from a combination of heart problems and a broken bone he probably received when he was resisting arrest after he swallowed the meth that was found in his system (as per the attached news story).

Moral of the story: You gotta be in good shape if you want to fight the police!

Really? So you, Jimred and MEGoody think it’s AOK to kill someone over a traffic stop?

Guess you wouldn’t have a problem if it was a friend or relative either.

I gotta wonder about some of you.

I guess letting him keep the drugs in his mouth and taking them away later wasn’t an option.

Protecting, serving, choking people to death...

He didn’t die cuz of a traffic stop.

He died cuz he was in crappy shape and wasn’t fit enough to fight the police without injuring himself.

The cops don’t psychically know why he was resisting. So they should just let him go if he says he’s willing to fight to avoid the investigation?

And you’d have no problem if they let him go cuz he said he didn’t want to cooperate and it was later found that he’d just raped your friend or relative?

One thing worth noting is that there is about two minutes of the confrontation missing from the posted video at about 2:25 in.

Rush is a drug addict, a recovered addict, but nevertheless an addict. Anyone who is addicted to cigarettes is a drug addict. Every alcoholic is a drug addict...

You’re wacked ,, he never attacked the cop ,, just attempted to destroy evidence by swallowing it ... there is not one frame of video showing an attack on the cop ... HOWEVER after backup arrived at 4:24:20 on the uppermost video timer one cop turns off the dashcam for an undetermined amount of time ,, after the camera is turned back on they call for medical ...

These bastards killed him after turning off the dash cam ... these 2 cops should do life.

When a cop is trying to handcuff you and you engage him in a fight because you are trying to commit a felony (destroy evidence that is hidden on your person, then that is attacking, what did you think initiated all that fighting?

Sorry, but your post made no sense to me, and I couldn't tell whether you were agreeing or rejecting what I said. My intention was to expose how utterly barbaric police behavior is becoming in this country. Anyone who tries to defend this kind of barbaric reaction to a person with a drug problem has got to be seen as someone out of their mind with a "death to the drug users" mentality. Law enforcement is quickly getting the rep as death squads. It truly saddens me to see this happen.

Well, a case could be made that while the officers tried to save his life from a drug overdose he expired.

Certainly this will be investigated.

“You must not fight much if you think that punches have to be thrown.”

Apparently you do, since you claim to know so much about it. Typical thug type. Civilized people do not “fight much,” but this has become a totally uncivilized country, thanks to you and all the other jocks who think being able to throw a punch is a good substitute for brains.

The cop was on the guy’s back, choking him nearly the entire video and he had one of his hands in the cuff. (except when the cop was getting his punches in) The dumbass redneck didn’t even realize he’d killed the guy.

I was being sarcastic, once the handcuffing and the search starts then it has to be finished, a cop cannot let you fight him and prevail.

You cannot make a rule that once the process starts and you are being handcuffed that you can start fighting and if you can get the evidence into your mouth then you get a freebie that day.

“Then there are sheepdogs,” he went on, “and I’m a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf.” Or, as a sign in one California law enforcement agency put it, “We intimidate those who intimidate others.”

So as a sheepdog you kill any sheep that wanders off to the edge of the field?

I should have clarified that I was mainly referring to marijuana, cocaine, heroin, etc. I don’t have a lot of sympathy for pain killer addicts like Rush either though. I have not been a fan of his since his multiple divorces and Oxycontin addiction that have distracted from his message and the message of conservatives.

Sick, no I just watched the video, he resisted arrest, he
swallowed evidence, he continued to resist the officer,
at some point the plastic bag blocked his airway, the officers then gave CPR to no avail.

case closed.

Civilized people do not “fight much,”

I have been in countless fights and I am proud of what I accomplished in every one of them, whether jumping into a fight when a man cuts another with a knife, or humiliating a man attacking a woman, or to protect little guys that I had never met from having to suffer humiliation and injury at the hands of bar bullies, useful fighting by a good person can have a very good effect among the people that walk on the darker side of life.

When you are in a biker bar and one or two bikers single you out for fun then it can be very helpful to have a private citizen that speaks their language walk over, stand firmly in front of you and introduce himself to the bikers while holding firm eye contact with them to let them know that to reach the sheep they have to go through the sheepdog.

Yeah, I am a sheepdog.
