So you're justifying what the cop did because she was DUI?

I was talking about if she hadn't got into her car knowing she was drunk. She would of never end up arrested and slam into a cell bench. By a officer who is haveing a bad day.

 

Yes I know the officer is in the wrong here for use of force.

That's irrelevant.

We see these stories day in and day out, yet the same simply isn't true of other western countries.

I've no doubt I can find a lot more if I had the desire...I do not, however.

 

As mentioned by FloatingFatMan, it is probably less common now than it was before.  It is just more visible now.

Maybe if she weren't so bloody drunk, and therefore in a state of self-induced instability, she wouldn't have gone down and made it to the bench. Time for the 12 steps.

Blaming the victim is the lowest of the low.  :no:

There is no doubt that the shove—which was extremely aggressive in nature—was deliberate. Whether the officer intended for her to get hurt as she did is irrelevant.

 

I wouldn't call it extremely aggressive. It was forceful sure, a sober person would have easily remained upright. And its not irrelevant whether he intended to harm her or not. It was an accident, he overestimated her ability to stand in her state. Drink drivers are hated by Police. Before she left the Police, my Mum used to come home crying half the nights because she'd witnessed the scene of a drunk driver taking out a small child at speed and fled. And this is the countryside.

 

So he pushed her, a little hard sure. She ended up hurt, he didn't mean for it to happen, he got her medical help right after. There's a difference between accidently hurting somebody and deliberately mistreating them.

My dad is still a police man and he's told me stories about times a suspect tried to escape, still in handcuffs. He grabbed him by the belt and cuffs, spun him around to throw him into the back of the car, and realized too late that the backdoor was still closed. With a thump. Although it can't have helped that 1 week prior, that same scumbag had assaulted me because I asked him for ID when he tried to buy alcohol.

It is amazing how easy it is to skew the results in your favor with the Internet.

 

For instance, I googled:

 

police brutality UK

 

 

http://police-brutality-uk.co.uk/

 

UK must have a real issue with police brutality, eh?

 

 

You Googled for police brutality in the UK and you got a site for it.

 

Your point being?

Did you actually look at that site before you posted it? Here are some of the examples of police brutality:

  • Armed police stop on double yellow lines to grab a coffee
  • Inspector ‘too busy’ to investigate complaint
  • Tasers fired 41 times by North East police in a year
  • Anti-G8 protesters fear ‘heavy-handed’ police response

Nobody is disputing that police brutality occurs in other countries, including the UK, but it just isn't comparable to the level seen in the United States. Very rarely do police officers in the US face criminal charges or disciplinary action in cases like this. The officer here should have been dismissed from the force and charged with assault yet he still has his job.

 

At extended version of the video can be seen here.

 

By the way, it should be noted that when she was found by police she was asleep in her vehicle at the side of the road. She had realised she was too drunk to drive and stopped the car. That's not to excuse her for drink driving but rather to point out that she's not the drunk menace as claimed some others in this topic.

He committed battery, which is defined by:

  1. an unlawful application of force
  2. to the person of another
  3. resulting in either bodily injury or an offensive touching

That's a criminal offence. It doesn't matter whether she was a drunk driver or a murderer, she wasn't resisting and therefore the application of force was unlawful.

 

I don't see how anybody could watch that video and defend the actions of the officer. :no:

Actually things like this are not as common as you make them out to sound, but that is your agenda, so you have to make it sound like this is some epidemic. The issue with the internet is people only post stories like this and they gain international attention. Never posting the millions of positive encounters people have with law enforcement daily. The typically outcome of a situation like this is, 1: The officer will be fired, 2: The department will be sued and pay out a large sum of money. 3: The officer will be civilly sued and receive a judgement against him. All of that will happen, on top of if he is actually charged with anything criminal. His career is ruined, his life may be ruined also, and he deserves it. There are a ton of other men and women that need jobs and are willing to do put their lives on the line for $13-$18 an hour who would not act like this guy, and the department/city/agency doesn't want the law suit, so it's not like this is out of control and people are just doing whatever they want, as your post and the source act like. I've seen this source before and their stories repeat over and over like a broken record.

 

Just like mass murder.  They're far more common in the USA than most other countries.  But, in saying that, you've probably also got one of the, if not the, biggest combined police forces in the world, so it's kind of expected.

1.  The officer won't be fired.  He'll be stood down on full pay, and once the heat is off, he'll slide back into a job.
2.  A cop could fart in the wrong direction and get sued over there.  The USA is sue crazy, of course she'll sue.
3.  Doubtful that the police will let one of their own get that deep.  They'll pay handsomely for it all to go away

That he is doing the same thing to show that somehow police brutality is some huge, growing epidemic and out of control in the US.

 

You know, had you actually read what you quoted, you would have seen that my point was how you search on the Internet will skew your results the way you want them to be.

 

Please read the thread in its entirety to understand "points".

I don't think anyone in here was under the impression police brutality was a US only problem. 

 

I didn't see the merit in searching for police brutality in the UK and then posting that it exists.
