He should have lost his job[edit]

I don't take crap from people that are supposed to protect you. The police officer should have lost his job forever, not suspended from pay. FellowWiki Newsie 20:58, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Not just the officer.[edit]

This officer seemed too comfortable berating citizens. The entire police department of this town should be reviewed. This is definitely not the first or only time people have been harassed by this officer. If the department allows this type of behaviour, then what else do they allow that has not been caught on tape?


We need more people like that dude who got pulled over that are willing to stand up to authority. 24.2.58.216 22:56, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

It's not like incidents like this are common, 24.2.58.216. Contralya 02:01, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Correction: It's not like incidents like this are commonly caught on tape.

Outrage[edit]

81.159.82.85 16:11, 12 September 2007 (UTC) That policeman behaved outragously and should have lost his job as he clearly does not do it right.

This is neither news nor brutality[edit]

Firstly, Who cares? No major networks have picked this up, this is just internet crap.

Secondly, the kid was being annoying to the officer so he pretty much deserves what he got.

He's lucky the officer didn't arrest him or beat him up. If I was a cop I probably would have shot him or at least beat him seriously.
