Is this happening more often or is the Internet just making us more aware of it? This police officer didn’t know he was on video, obviously. The kick in the head, then pushing the guys arm up way beyond where he needed to, then the high five…pretty disgusting.
I know the guy is a criminal and I know he’s a suspected gang member, but does this really help reform anyone? I believe this kind of behavior does nothing more than send more young kids into gangs and helps to create distrust and hate toward police officers in general.
From what I’ve read this officer hasn’t been disciplined or suspended yet, but I’ll update when I find out more.
