    I really hate when shit like this goes on and they place the cop that gets busted on administrative leave. They should be suspended without pay until the investigation has completed in cases like these. In the end the guy has to be fired. What is worst in most cases, these cops move and get hired by another police force in another state. Kind of like priests.

    THE OFFICER WAS OUT-NUMBERED. THESE CHARGES ARE RIDICULOUS. IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE GONE AS LONG AS IT DID. IF THE GUYS IN THE TRUCK WOULD HAVE JUST DONE WHAT THEY WERE TOLD EVERYTHING WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT. BESIDES, WE DON’T KNOW HOW LONG THE OFFICER FOLLOWED OR CHASED THE TRUCK BEFORE THEY STOPPED. GOOD FOR THE OFFICER FOR TAKING CONTROL OF THE SITUATION UNTIL BACK-UP ARRIVED.

    Wow! The officer should be arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. My brother is in law enforcement, the only mistake this kid made was getting out of the car. That cop is a disgrace to the profession, he’s an black spot to all the good police officers who actually work very hard to keep their cities and towns safe.
    The cop ultimately should go to jail for breaking the law- no one is above the law not even a cop.
    PS Randy, if taking control of a situation includes beating a boy while he is down on the ground on all fours with a weapon that is meant and can kill someone, then you seriously have a problem with situational assessment and anger- get some help.

    It’s a little late, but put that cop in jail. the driver was noncombative, he should not have gotten out of the car but didden’t deserve a beating for his actions.

    Officer did nothing wrong these guys are out there risking there lives and you get some nuckle heads who dont want to listen to what there told, clearly the officer was out numbered! he did what he had to do too take control of the situation. And he lived to go home to his family.
    America is in tough shape when officers arent allowed to do there job because of the pathetic people who now infest the USA. take away all the cops i will survive but the likes of you will be belly aching for help because of the bad people, well your stuck with it, you created it now you must live with it…
