That's really f*cked up. All those officers involved should be fired and charged with police brutality. Who's the guy in the t-shirt a plain clothes detective or just someone hanging around?

There is more to it than that. He got into an argument with someone in the parking lot and they threw a cup of coffee at his car. The person alleged he started screaming he had a gun and was going to shoot him, so they called police.

So while uncalled for and obviously brutality, his version of events that they just randomly accused him of having a gun isn't true.

I'm assuming the guy walking around was just watching it. Plain clothes cops dress in business casual, not a t-shirt.

OK thanks for clarifying the story. As he didn't have a gun and was complying they didn't need to use excess force in that instance. Like if he did have a gun I believe they could have used any force necessary to stop him within the remit of the law. Say he was pointing a gun and shouting they could have wrestled him to the ground etc. But this is still straight up police brutality. I believe there's a degree of fabrication to stir up unrest though because like you say they omitted the other part of the story and whilst they were very heavy handed his teeth didn't appear knocked out. But still, it's video evidence of police being real heavy handed unncessarily. But on the other hand say he had a conceled weapon so they could have acted according to protocol. I don't agree with brutality at all but the police need to do their job and could have saved someone's life said he did pull a gun and shoot the guy he was arguing with. I'm assuming the guy around is the one he was arguing with maybe.

They do them but not as much. They used to get big celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and George Clooney, and I think Bill Clinton even did one when he was president. But they have Klay Thompson and Dancing with the Stars people in ads now.

She noticed a contrast to her own school days in the 1990s. "If you were a 15-year-old lad in the 90s, you worshipped Liam Gallagher. Now, you worship Ed Sheeran"
Someone needs to write a sequel to the Tom Brokaw book about WWII vets called The Greatest Generation about Gen Z called The Lamest Generation.

I thought El Chapo had the greatest escape. But this guy just did some shit that if it happened in a movie you'd say was too unrealistic to ever happen in real life. You've got to give him some kind of respect for that I guess.
