[W/ VIDEO] Did Anaheim Police Beat a Restrained Man Who Kept Shouting "I Quit! I Quit"?

Categories: Main

A video of an alleged Anaheim Police brutality incident has gone viral, showing police beating a drunk man in an apartment complex. A contributor to BeforeItsNews.com posted the video, claiming the drunk man in the video initially resisted arrest after being restrained successfully, police continued to choke and hit the man in the face as the man screamed "I quit, I quit, I quit!"  



The alleged victim was not identified and there is no confirmation the police in the video are from Anaheim other than the YouTube description saying it happened there, but that has not stopped the video from circulating on social media websites claiming it's another Anaheim police brutality incident, and reaching over 12,000 views. OC Weekly has attempted to contact the blogger who posted the video for more information with no response so far.



The educated guess: even from such a distance and at night, those look like Anaheim PD uniforms--note the black shirts and pants, and the placement of the shoulder patch. But can any of you Anaheimers identify the apartment complex?

JamesRobertReade you must be confusing the "if  you run, I deliver kill shot" pseudo-justice method they use in many other nations ('legally') with the way we do things here in 'Merca. If our law enforcement officers tried that shit, they'd be put behind bars with all the other evil small-time drug felons that they helped put away. But dont you worry your pretty little head my friend. We here in the US will find ourselves immersed in laws that aim to make your method a reality soon enough! Keep an eye on the stories that dont make headline network news :)   Either way, the people have only ourselves to blame...though it seems like they are making people different out in Indiana with their recent amendments too the Castle Doctrine bill (allowing lethal force against unlawful, intruding police officers). California can learn a wee bit from its northeastern neighbor.

Let's get it straight. We expect police to use reasonable force, to be honest, controlled, well-trained and led and respectful to all of us, right? So how do we get there? 

For insight and direction on this and other important police improvement issues, take a look at  “Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police” (Amazon.com in US and EU). And the blog at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com/ where other current police improvement issues are discussed.

If we refuse to obey a peace officer’s commands and run then we can expect to be shot with deadly force. The likelihood of laws being changed to accommodate irresponsible citizens who challenge police by acting like caged animals and running is almost zero. Obey officer’s commands. James Robert Reade

It would be responsible if the alleged reporter was to contact Anaheim PD for a comment. You look like a bunch of uneducated baffoons for not checking for facts before running a slam story on a local police agency. Maybe if you learned the facts, then there might be a more calm response that is less about hype and endangerement to public safety in the city of Anaheim.

Police officers are mean SOBs anymore but then I look around at the hardcore, the gangs, the thugs, the out-of-control rebellious punks and law breakers that are so prevalent in society anymore and I think they got that way for a reason.

 

What we want them to do is learn to tell the difference between an ordinary citizen on an off-night and all of the above. Reading these news reports, they seem to have work to do in that area yet.
