    Those 57 shouldn’t even be allowed to work mall security

      @Rino Ponce yes cops are the direct descendants of the PADDY ROLLERS. Their purpose is to keep oppressed people in line.

    • Rino Ponce Now that’s some failed logic.

    • Rino Ponce if people didn’t eat bread then we wouldn’t need bakers. Therefore there is no baker misconduct when they poison your bread.

      That’s what you sound like.

    For those 57 cops who “protested” to resignation are a blessing to the public. Obviously they all examples of police brutality. Should they remain on the force, they will eventually be portrayed in future videos of their brutal treatment to the public.

      @MinaOlenElla covid made protesting illegal, remember?

    • These are scared law enforcement officers. They should not be on the streets.
      The confident ones are like we saw this past week putting their batons down and
      hugging protesters. Who happen to be the people in the communities they serve.

      they’re still in the police force. They only resigned from the emergency unit.

    • William Bledsoe | June 6, 2020 at 9:44 PM | Reply

      They only threatened to resign because they were threatened by their union rep.

    • Police is a terrorist organisation and they need to be abolished indefinitely

  4. In the 30s they were called Brown Shirts. Only difference is that was Hitler’s Germany and it was the Jewish people.

      IZ2bSA80 the fact that there are a few videos like this is bad. Even if 99% of police are good, that 1% is the problem. Not all police are bad. But the system is flawed and we need to fix that.

      They didn’t feel so offended as to turn down their paychecks however. They are still in the department. Still have weapons. Still a danger to the citizens.

  9. Yes. This has to be the storyline until there is CHANGE.

  10. Anybody remember Kent State May 4th massacre, National guard killed 4 students and wounded 9 others in 13 seconds firing 67 rounds. These were peaceful student demonstrators. Do not trust the so called leaders.

      @Crystal Giddens yes,for sure…actually it’s interesting you brought up John McEnroe,he was like the Bob Dylan of tennis,everyone thought he was a total brat but he did stand up for himself,looking back I kind of admire that. and ,you are right the hippies were naive,but they bRought some amazing music,and since I was a kid then and I’m a musician,I learned tons from the musicians from the 60s,,,but the 60s the economy was amazing,so they seem to have it all,yet ironically did tons of complaining in the process…but what they did question things…and the music business was naive also then,but because of that you had huge Innovations from the Beatles,Bob Dylan and so on to Neil Young…strange innocence ,or naive qualities created great art.]and they were allowed to very much experiment in music…I played guitar and bars and places in the 70s,guitar and some places now,before the Coronavirus….all I can say is there was a simplicity to the 60s and 70s,and a freedom…part of the naive quality brought them a certain Freedom at least at the time…in the end it was the drugs and lawlessness that destroyed them.but it started off as almost a utopic idea…I don’t want to sound like an old guy,but I guess I am I’m sure there’s tons of good music now,I’ve heard some,,, there’s always talent and every generation. but there was a movement in the late sixties and early seventies,that was very free,that faded away.and the older generation like my father,the rules seemed a lot firmer for society.the contrast from the strictness of my father’s generation,and the freedom of the hippie generation,brought a strange mix.but in some ways my father’s generation,made things stable for my generation.and that utopic dream faded away,

      @ifyoueverfind78 IDK if you have or have not listened to the older music even before the 50’s. It wasn’t as “energetic” but the talent was unmistakable especially the blues music. I hear there is this “effort” to use music the arts the media and even sports to “influence” society as a whole. They did.

    • ifyoueverfind78 | June 6, 2020 at 8:05 PM | Reply

      @Crystal Giddens well my next favourite Music would be the 1920s To1940s in jazz and blues. You Had the Blues Guys,like Robert Johnson,Muddy Waters,BB King.[and ..[and Woody Guthrie’s sang protest music]a great movement in jazz,,a little later,,someone like Miles Davis,or someone like Paul Desmond,which have more of my favourite style of jazz…but as an era,I’m fascinated by the 1920s.and I think there is a similarity of the 1920s and the 1960s.My grandmother used to talk about the 1920s.when you think about it they just got radio,they just got silent films,factories, profits were happening,they just got cars,people making money,at the same time jazz came out. people are really excited ,and I think the music reflected that…but I also look at some of the rhythm and blues of the 1950s it is just fantastic.so there are other movements in music that were considered innovative,and were exciting for sure…i just don’t usually like musicals,they are sometimes irritating [haha]

      @ifyoueverfind78 agreed musicals are ‘sometimes’ irritating.

    when you hold a peton like a baseball its not defense, when protesters are alone in the middle of 5 cops its not a threat

    • Police departments at these point are just domestic terrorist groups. They need to be treated as such. Suspend all police activities and arrest all officers on the streets.

    • Regina Rayborn | June 6, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      @L Las they really are and what made me even more sick was that they immediately suspended the officer that pushed him and 50 of the other officers in that group have turned in their gear to protest their actions to suspend that officer well my opinion is of they want to stand with the obvious police brutality that officer showed then they can go down with him and they shld all be fired immediately not just suspended

  15. Those 57 who resigned shouldn’t even be in the police force in he first place!!!

    Sad… One officer tried to help the man, but the other officer pushed him away… SAD

      The whole thing is sad. We should be standing WITH good police officers and not seeing them as the enemy. It’s funny they say don’t condemn an entire race over skin color but uniform color? That’s ok. They’re all alike.

      This whole thing makes me sick. Hypocrites. Stop making it about police.

    • It’s riot rules. Not sure if you have ever read the code but in riot gear and ordered to push ahead they call emts. It’s for purposes of crowd control. They make a bigger space and emts come in and do their job.

      that is enraging….

    • @Google Name The difference is that the police have more authority and power than the rest of us, that is why there needs to be a higher standard and level of accountability for bad behavior. Now it seems as is they are less accountable.
