Video shows police officers repeatedly pummeling shirtless man in Jewish youth center in Brooklyn
New York Daily News ^ | 10-15-12 | Irving Dejohn et al

Posted on 10/15/2012 1:14:52 PM PDT by RKBA Democrat

Two police officers repeatedly pummeled a shirtless man in a Jewish youth center in Brooklyn after they roused him from sleeping and moved to arrest him, surveillance video released Sunday night shows.

Cops showed up at the Aliya Institute on E. New York Ave. in Crown Heights on the evening of Oct. 8 after receiving a call about a fight between two men, a community source told the Daily News.

But Zlamy Trappler, 24, a volunteer security guard at the center, said he called cops because he found the shirtless man drunk and sleeping in the lounge of the center, which provides services to young Jewish adults.

Unruly teen?
Drunk uncle?
Mentally-handicapped son?

NEVER invite “The Man” into your life.
They guy in charge regrets calling the cops and you can see why.

looked to me like the guy squared off and wanted a fight and that's what he got. As long as he was resisting, he was just inviting more. Can't fault the cops on this one. I sure wouldn't want a female partner in a brawl.

I don’t think that male cop needed an invitation.

A little grappling skill goes a long way. Punching that coconut only gives you a broken hand and an internet audience you don’t really want.

Yeah, I’m not seeing abuse. I see a guy resisting arrest and two cops failing or flailing miserably until the 3rd cop arrives.

Looks everyone got a good workout.

Only problem I have with this is the woman cop was underpowered and had to resort to beating on the guy with her super fly baton.

She couldn’t give an assist to the brawny cop and get his azz on the the ground.

Problem solved when a nice big cop came in and tossed him on the floor.

Morals of the day:

Women’s don’t belong in those situations.

Never take a swing at a cop. It’s gonna end badly.

Oh and the third moral of the day:

If yoos bacon with a badge learn some Aikido, Hapkido or Jui Jitsu.

Usually ends the fight with something broken and you don’t have to exert yourself so much.

This is a perfect example of why cops need more/better training. They allowed him to keep them in front instead of having one behind him. The female office was using her ASP collapsible baton (Think Nancy Kerrigan) incorrectly.

After the Rodney King incident I trained a number of police groups in the correct use of the defensive tactical baton (Yes the name does matter when you are in court defending your actions.) and Pr-24. It is amazing how few of our officers have no advanced training in this.

LOL

I studied to become a cop(didn’t) and took offensive/defensive classes.

I never see cops use their baton correctly.

We were taught poke, punch and use of the baton for leverage holds that were well....a wee bit painful but very effective in leading people around in circles until they uncle or “Whatever you want man! Whatever you want man! AahhHHHHHH!”

Not so fast there. I have worked with Women officers that take down men twice their size with out breaking a sweat, or the perps bones. It is all a matter of training.

Continued:

Cop: While I’m beating the snot out of you I’ll have my uniformed secretary whip your @$$ with her little stick.

Guy: I didn’t do anything leave me alone.

Cops: We’re such big men. Only took half a doz of us to beat the snot out of you. Now we can all stand around and look tough.

Guy: (F)@cking pigs!

I was speaking generally.

I know a couple of women(Very Hot) and I wouldn’t want them beating on me but, I’d feel very comfortable if they had my back in a bar.

Then again, one is MMA and a couple years back I saw her with a nice shiny black bloch on her cheeck. Seems she got it hitting the mat, with her face.

The other is 5th degree black Tae Kwon Do. I sparred with her when she was 14 and a mere black belt, with two years of Hapkido.

I ended up on the ground and I didn’t know how to fall I probably would be walking around with a bird perch where my clavicle seperated at the shoulder.(Have a friend who has one of those. Yeeeesh!)

I could see them as cops and since I couldn’t hit on them, while on duty, I’d let em hit me...spank me ////

Please see a vision care professional. He did no such thing. The idiot gorilla with the cop costume on did all this himself, and belongs in a cell with a larger, hornier dude.

Well, let’s see....Old Man.

at 1:04 it looks like he may have touched the officers hand. Assault in any city.

At 1:09 the Uniformed Secretary gently tugs at his lower arm above the wrist(How frickin stupid is that?) He forcefully pulls his arm up in a fashion I would interpret as a swing, if I was standing in front of guy.

Yeah, it looks like he just pulled away when on tape but when he pulls away from the uniformed secretary and I’m standing there well, that sure isn’t how I’m going to interpret it.

So now he’s up for Resisting Arrest.

At this point I’m sure the officers are demanding he comply and as they move in he starts flailing his arms. Looks desperate and as the Male officer moves to press the bumb, grabbing both his wrist, the blockhead properly breaks the grip of the officer and does in a fairly violent manner.

Now it’s game on, like Donkey Kong.

Cop goes haywire, uniformed secretary gives the guy several love taps. He ain’t complying.

At this point he is probably being yelled at and told to turn over, get on the ground, etc...whatever.

The Brawny cop attempts several times to get a hold of the misift. After a minute he finally gets the upper hand and seems to have the 99%er pushed over into a submissive position but, it looks like Mr. Brawny cop is a bit out of breath as he leans on the Resistor.

At 2:55 the cop attempts to leverage the Resistor off the couch. I don’t know why he couldn’t. He looks about 40 pounds heavier. Anyway, it’s at this point the Resistor puts his hand on the cops shoulder probing to see if he can the cop off him.

When he can’t, he starts fiddling with the Brawny Cop’s hands to release the fingers. More assault.

At this point Mr. Brain Squeeze, lashes out in a manner that I would interpret as a couple of swings, knocking the baton out of the uniformed secretary’s hand and pushing her back. Another Assault.

After 2.5 minutes and even Bigger Brawny Cop comes in and it’s game over, even as the pimple headed miscreant continues to resist by turning so he can’t be cuffed.

But, to bad, so sad...it’s over.

So that’s the way I see it and I call em when I see em.

If cops is wrong and wrong in the head for shooting dogs then I call em on it.

When they are right...well, thems the breaks.

That’s the way I see it too. In fact a male officer would have forced the mans hands behind his back and cuffed him before he had a chance to start anything.When the little female tried it she wasn’t strong enough to make it stick.Then the big brave cop with her had to show his ass.

The guy made too many offensive moves but two male cops would have been able to handle it differently.

you should know if you resist arrest you will be taken with force. you can decide if it’s worth it to fight with the cops or take it up with the judge

They received a call about a fight, responded and this fellow did not obey a lawful command.

I don't know, idiots?

What does anyone expect to accomplish by resisting the cops?

"Sir, you win. Have a nice day!"

That's idiotic.

If you want to "resist" the cops, elect a new sheriff, get bad ones fired, whatever, but you're not going to work anything out in the impromptu court of sidewalk justice.

Peaceful resistance is best, however the cops are taking that off the table.

Seems cops think they are better than everyone else and we all have to jump at their slightest whim, or be beat, tazed or shot.

Its time to return cops to their proper role of being a public servant.

"They" meaning the two cops shown in the video who woke the guy up on the couch? Where was the fight?

And FWIW:

The community source said Halevi had been allowed to stay at the Institute.
