  • Cops are probably taking testosterone supplements and can’t control their rage and desire to dominate everything. It’s common among older cops and should be something that’s looked into. Respect to the soldier for staying calm and surviving.

  • Sprayed, pointing weapons at him, and kicked... How are not those police guys arrested? I mean just getting fired its kinda easy. 30 days in temporary jail and fined and fired. To make them regret what they did. You cant just empty a pepper spray on a lieutenant cause you hold one, and threaten to shoot him.

  • In my country even the lowest in rank or even the simple soldier (here is mandatory to join) is above every police officer if they want to search you or ask you anything is in your hand to say yes and if they even try to do a body search and the soldier don't want has the constitutional right to ask for the military police to come and do what the simple police wants or try to do. Happened to me years ago at a central spot in our capital and it were the hardest unit back then named MAT it means like Restoration of Order Unit and they truly are hardcore, anyway i told them (i was in my civilian clothes had the weekend off) if you want to search me call the military police to do it if you want to ask me anything about where I'm going now or what i am doing here be my guest but DO NOT ask NOTHING that has to do with my military service plus give me your names and badges (they had nothing to identify them) so after they get super nervous their supervisor came said sorry after i show only at him my ID and that I'm free to go. True story no bs this is how was working back then now idk to be honest

  • I dont understand why we are only shown an edited version of what i would have to assume is Bodcam footage of an incident that we have no business drawing conclusions for based on what is provided.If notice the only reference to the reason for the traffic stop is given by the anchor employed by the broadcast station . ( He said / She said) If you had the slightest bit if consideration for what your viewer's ( informed opinions) were , i would suggest providing them with an unedited , full account of the situation at hand .This is how TRUE JOURNALISTS & REPORTERS inform their Local and NATIONAL viewers of newsworthy events happening around their world for the sole purpose of public awareness , in order to preserve moral conduct and ethical standards for determining what is right and wrong in our societies.
