    That elbow to the face was brutal not to mention the other strikes to the head. If the detainee wasn't trapped in the corner they could have easily taken him down. This much force is not necessary.

    Mesa's finest. :rolleyes:

    This was nothing short of a mugging. I'm surprised they didn`t take his wallet. Except for the fact that they work for a city government instead of the federal government, this has SS written all over it.

    Good, decent cops are undoubtedly appalled by this. They understand how the actions of a few reprobates taint the entire profession.

    Me and my crew (4 of us) took down more than a few crazies over the years and never once was a punch thrown.

    This whole thing is disgraceful.

    Also could easily be placed in the "to players compelled" thread.

    I have begun calling the businesses I patronize in Mesa stating I am afraid to set foot in the city until the Police Department is reformed - too many racist, out of control cops in Mesa. This is what, the fourth similar incident in the last few years?

    As a staunch supporter of LE, I'm appalled and embarrassed by this display. This appears to be nothing more than common thuggery.

    Apparently a woman called police saying her ex-boyfriend (not the man pictured) was trying to break into her apartment - massive police response. Ex-boyfriend was quickly arrested, this man did not get off his phone and you see what happened.

    Georgia cop fired for hitting fleeing suspect with car gets hired by neighboring county

    A police officer in Georgia who was fired Saturday after body camera footage showed him hitting a fleeing suspect with his car has been hired by a neighboring police department.

    Taylor Saulters, a former officer for the Athens-Clarke County Police Department in Georgia, on Monday was hired by the neighboring Oglethorpe County Sheriff's Office.

    Oglethorpe County Sheriff David Gabriel announced the news on Facebook Monday afternoon, saying, “I have known him since he was a baby and I know he will be a great asset to our county.”

    The sheriff further defended his decision to hire Saulters, adding that he had “no reservations” in regards to the incident over the weekend when “a fleeing felon struck his patrol car.”

    “If his name sounds familiar it is probably due to the fact that he was recently terminated by ACCPD for an incident where a fleeing felon struck his patrol car while he was attempting to apprehend him,” Gabriel wrote in the post. “In talking to Saulters the first question he asked was if our citizens supported law enforcement. Without hesitation I assured him they did and that we have excellent people that live in our county. I have no reservations about Dep. Saulters serving this community.”

    The rookie police officer was fired for using excessive force after striking a man with his patrol car during a pursuit.

    Is there going to be a time when we start to see armed resistance to this sort of activity? Not a joke question.
