My friend has entirely too much time on his hands.
Very clever video, I thought it was neat.

Bullies with badges and a gun with a huge power trip straight to their head. I am glad more and more people are taping these ******, getting their name and badge numbers. But unfortunately most cases after IA does their investigations the officer is found to be within the regulations of the department. It is truly unfortunate that civilians can't do anything to stop that kind of stuff without all of the brutality focused on them.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't know what the guy did to have the police called to him in the first place. All I know, is he seemed pretty docile when he was cuffed. He just kept repeating "I didn't do anything."
This is my personal assessment, I wasn't there, I am not a LEO, nor a professional. But from the comments made in the video, the first cop tried to taser the guy first, now looking at the video it appears he went for the face. If only one barb hits the target, the effect is drastically reduced, and the barbs need to be within a 4 inch spread to have the most effect. It looks to me as only one barb made contact. And who knows, maybe it was only pepper spray as the officer did not announce "TASER, TASER, TASER," or just the heat of the moment he forgot to. Did the guy rear up to the cop with his hammer, yes. Were 10-11 shots necessary, no. It just seems like this **** is happening more and more. Or just the simple fact that it's always happened, but without the technology of cameras everywhere nobody saw what really happens.
I think that aussie deserved it. He tried to kick one of the officers so one of them took him down and literally took the wind out of him. I don't know what happened before or after the vid, but what I saw didn't look like unnecessary force to me.
