I can't imagine a time when it is necessary to punch a subdued woman in the face. If she is resisting, mace and cuff her.

These cops just went ape shit for no reason and the city of Carlsbad is going to pay out the ass for this.

Also since when do you get arrested for a seat belt violation? Once again, fuck the police.

Sadly, citizens of the city of Carlsbad who pay taxes will be the ones who end up footing the bill. It would be nice if the actual officers involved were punished for this. Unfortunately, history tells us that at most they will be suspended with pay.

Just how it goes in society, cops run amok and are only held responsible if they kill the wrong person. Carlsbad is a wealthy coastal city so they will pay up for sure, question is whether local news will run with this and get the community involved. I doubt it but I can hope.

i keep repeating this......we should all understand that in the US, in the eyes of the Law... we are ALL criminals. our arrest and convictions are just a matter of time. they will be getting to all of us eventually.

This stuff makes me sick, and I'm seeing it far too often. As a resident of another country, I am becoming less and less likely to ever visit the U.S.

Whelp, now I need some eye bleach. One of the more fucked up things I've seen on the internet, and that's saying something.

So she called the police department and complained that he told her to fuck off after she asked if there was a bathroom nearby. Minutes later, the same officer is arresting her for a seatbelt? If they can prove she called the police before the arrest, it's pretty open and shut case - criminally and civilly. If I were on the jury, I'd giver her whatever amount she asked for with the goal of bankrupting that county.

I can see this as two possibilities.

  1. As presented, police retaliation for a complaint.

  2. An entitled bitch who resisted arrest.

I suspect its more of the first as its hard to believe two burly officers couldnt subdue an entitled bitch without punching her in the head. I would like to see the police's defense, just because I like to hear both sides, sadly I suspect this will be settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.

Well, the woman said she called the police dept. to complain about the same officer just minutes before the arrest. I'm sure they have recordings of her call or at least a log of it. Don't you think that would be incriminating against the officer if he arrests her for a seatbelt minutes after she called to complain that he told her to fuck off after she asked if there was a bathroom nearby?

@Biohazard nowhere to be seen on this one. Probably trying to come up with a way to explain the totality of the situation and make use of force seem reasonable.

Any of you school shooter types reading, turn your attention to the police. You will be actual hero's and people will love you for sacrificing your life to take out greasy petty tax agents.

Good luck!

I think we're all starting to wrap our heads around the fact that many police departments are staffed by an inordinately high number of unethical people, and the more we see crazy things like this the faster we tend to demand that police departments fix the problem now! Those of us who believe that force is a reasonable shortcut can't help but talk ourselves in to believing that getting a little bit violent ourselves wouldn't force a very quick conclusion from their end. I'm often a proponent of the shortcut myself, and in some cases it is absolutely the best option.

Realistically, though, this is one of those situations that needs to be attacked nonviolently. Because of the unique nature of police and civilian interaction, the very existence of these types of videos has already begun the change that we all demand. The upper echelons of the police hierarchy, which are political in nature, are already starting to find their jobs hanging on their stance on this topic. Some of the more recent videos of police misconduct have actually resulted in some very real charges being filed, some of which carry a very high probability of convictions. Departments around the country are surely starting to consider, when hiring candidates, the probability of them doing something stupid, on camera and off. Mayors everywhere have to be pulling Chiefs aside and saying, "look, we're flat fucking broke out here, every damn one of us, and you can't keep costing us cash we don't have by fucking up."

It takes a long time to flush civil servants and bring in better ones, but I have to believe that's what's happening right this minute. The only thing that can fuck us up now is a bunch of people getting violent. We need to ride this out, keep publishing videos like this to fuel the fire, and let the fact that in a capitalist society no civil service apparatus that's costing $millions in penalties can survive reform for long.

No, we need people to defend themselves against assault and false arrest; and then we need those same people to win in a court of law, which is inevitably where cases like that will go. Nothing will change until there is personal accountability for police officers; whether that comes from the department in the form of internal sanctions, the state in the form of monetary accountability, or the people on the receiving end of this abuse does not really matter. Something has to give. We cannot wait for corrupt politicians to change police behavior and related law. People in positions of political power see police as their own private army, which exists for the purposes of punishment, taxation, and the suppression of rebellious behavior. We need people to start fighting back, to immediately disarm and detain violent officers, and to not give them into the custody of the agencies which they belong to.
