    This is what happens when you have liberals in charge.

    Actually the student took the officer's baton - that's what you saw in his hand. Contrary to the headline, it also did not look like he was hit in the head, which explains how he was able to take the baton. He was hit across the shoulder/back, just like he should be, although you could understand if the officer had missed as they were falling.

    I saw the strike to the upper back/shoulder area at :07. Is there a head strike later in the video?

    Looks the same to me.

    In my state targeting the head would be excessive force unless facing a threat of serious bodily harm or death.

    Targeting the shoulders would have been legit. The key word is also targeting. If a shoulder was the target, and it missed hitting the head, that's still a legit use of force. With a moving suspect hitting exactly where you aimed is harder than it looks.

    I wouldn't blame all cops from all liberal cities if they just resigned, and went elsewhere. If higher ups think they can do the job better, they should do it.

    The student was hospitalized head wound. But I think you are right.

    First, the guy wasn’t hit in the head. The Officer may have been AIMING for his head but that’s not where the miscreant was struck.

    Second, it was CRYSTAL CLEAR that the miscreant had a club of his own and was outpointed and took the blow and he then pushed the weapon away such that they’d not have any physical evidence - except it was caught on film.

    While everyone was laughing hysterically about “conspiracy!” this **** was steadily gaining ground.

    Now it’s FULLY GROWN and devouring Society.

    But that would instigate a “Reign of Terror” I’m which a lot of non-combatants would either be exterminated or left for greener pastures.

    We need to take back te cities and states but people fail to recognize what’s really happening.

    Did you even watch the video? Looks like the guy grabbed the cops baton AFTER the cop struck him with it.

    They decided to charge the cop BECAUSE OF THE VIDEO.

    Crystal clear? Post a screen grab showing this crystal clearly.

    You might want to get your hearing checked because I can CRYSTAL CLEARLY hear his head getting whacked at 00:07. Now that is crystal clear.

    This would not have happened if there had been a line of K-9s. :dog:

    But I wonder where the head wound was. Looks like it was more likely from the concrete than the baton. Either way, a lefty got hit in the head and that's generally a good thing. Too bad for the officer.

    If I had my way I’d give the cops baseball bats and let them go to town on those dirt bags. I hope the protester got a serious concussion. Yes I’m that disgusted by these protesters.

    Let’s see. Don’t fight the Police, they won’t use force? I have had a disagreement with a Deputy. Nobody got hurt.
    I had a college prof complain about how the Police broke up a riot he was in. Using his blackboard (yes that long ago) drawing I showed the Police gave multiple warnings, chances for them to peacefully disburse...
    This Video won’t load for me, internet Extremly slow today.

    I’m thinking it’s getting to be time to encourage the Police to be quicker with the sticks. Asking nice has not worked. (Surprise, surprise, surprise). Over 17 people are dead, millions in damages... the second the protest became a riot it should have been shut down. Lives would have been saved.

    Protesting is a right. I might have joined in. These are riots. Warn the innocents to go home, roll up the rest.

    I admitted my mistake . But it doesn’t change a thing. He was interfering with an arrest and the force was appropriate regardless. The DA was wrong

    I take back my previous take back. Look at the video again. The protester did have a weapon, not the baton. It looks like maybe a box cutter .
