Here’s the story- cops pull over a diabetic man in shock who they think is drunk driving. They go all cowboy with guns drawn, kicking the window of his car, screaming conflicting orders at him, and then a half-dozen cops pull him out of the car, and beat and kick him before discovering insulin in his pocket:
I’m not really sure what my favorite part of this video is- first, the warning for offensive language. Actually, the words “mother fucker” don’t bother me any where near as much as watching some douchebag cop run in and kick a man in the neck when he is clearly restrained and not resisting. Check out that real tough guy with a badge at 45 seconds in. Any chief that keeps that guy on the force is part of the damned problem.
My next favorite part is when these morons start asking each other if they are ok. What could they hurt? Their toes on the guy’s head?
And then, of course, the laughter afterwards, when instead they should be shaken up by how bad they screwed the pooch and how poorly they handled the situation.
If you’ll notice, the guy has done what you are supposed to do when you get pulled over, doing so even in a diabetic shock. He’s stopped the car, his hands are on the wheel, and he waits for instruction. Yet our Rockette Rambo has to go over guns drawn, kicking the window, acting like a maniac. I always thought the point of police was to defuse a situation, not escalate it.
At this point, though, with our politicians and courts bending over backwards to negate our rights and to look the other way when cops misbehave, I suppose we should all be happy they didn’t just execute the guy on the spot. Thank god there was no dog in the car.
And by the way, in my near ten years in the military, with all the exhaustive weapon training I received on a number of firearms, never once did an instructor inform me that the proper thing to do with a drawn and loaded weapon was to kick one foot up into the air. If you did that shit on any range in the world, they would kick you out and might possibly give you an article 15. What would happen if his foot slipped and he discharged? What if he shot the guy because of that? Or himself? Would the other cops think he had been shot when they heard the discharge and saw him on the ground and then unload into the driver? Just terrible fucking policework.

From the comments:
Honestly, the first 30 seconds look like an episode of Reno 911, but without the guy in the really tight shorts.
No kidding, right?
