When will cops learn that their authority does not allow them to be assholes?

Florida officers under fire after slapping, dragging incidents caught on video – CNN.com

The subject video discusses two separate instances in which Law Enforcement is suspected of abuse to people. In the first situation a Florida Cop slaps the crap out of an old man, then arrests the old man. At NO time is this acceptable conduct for a police officer and I suspect the officer will be working for a landscape company in the very near future.

The second situation is a little more difficult to call. In this case a woman has refused to get up when told to by officers, so an officer is seen dragging her down the courtroom hallway by her leg restraints. Frankly folks, this kind of stuff happens quite often. People in custody just sometimes do not want to comply with the officer’s orders and do their own mini sit-in. This usually lasts about 2 minutes, then the officer takes the necessary action to move the person from place A to place B. You will note the officer is not beating the woman, just simply dragging her down the hallway by her restraints. This woman could have at any time indicated she would walk as required, she likely would have been allowed to.

What do you think? Seriously, let’s get interactive for a minute and discuss this.
