For every action is a reaction, for every story there are two sides, with that being said, while most people will or do not know both sides of what really occurred, we only have the, in the words of a reporter, comments from the police department, while it well know and documented many times how a small number of law enforcement's so called finest decides to hash out there own version of justice, it should also be noted that no one person no matter how guilty or innocent there may be should ever be treated with such force, over stepping ones authority is simply abuse, rage, etc., and they should be held accountable for there actions, just as you would want a criminal to serve there time, no one reading this has the right to pass any kind of judgement until all the facts are truly in, who knows someday it might be someone you know.

This man was stopped for not wearing his seat belt and this was the outcome? Something thing needs to be done. Someone needs to come forward with a video. I saw a lot of people recording videos.
