I'm not the one who is "easy chair after game quarterbacking", YOU are.
In the original scenario, you excused the undercover cop, saying he may have assessed the situation (during the attack on the SUV driver) and determined no one's life was in danger, so decided he didn't have to take action to stop or report the attack.
Sure, now we know the SUV driver survived the savage beating, but at the time he was on the ground being stomped, beaten, kicked, and slashed...his life was very much in danger and there was no way someone, at that time, could determine that there was no need to fear for that man's life. When your face is being slashed, you are inches from the jugular. When your head is being stomped into the pavement there's a real good chance your skull could be crushed and you could be instantly killed or die of blood clots in the brain several days later. When your gut is being kicked it's possible your spleen or liver could be torn and you could easily bleed to death within minutes. So, yes, his life was in danger and nobody watching that attack could be sure he would survive. Until examined at a hospital after the attack, there was no way to determine the extent of his injuries to be sure they weren't life threatening even after the attack was over.
I'm also not making anything up. In the interview of the guy on the street who put his own life in danger to stop the attack, he also said the gang was pulling the mother and child from the SUV when other by standers stepped in to prevent it.
There is no excuse for the undercover cop to not have secretly contacted authorities. He could have peeled away from the chase and summoned help. Instead he chose to participate in the chase which makes him an accessory to the crime. The police department knows they are skating on very thin ice in this case. Members of the force were directly involved and are now working to cover up. They also did not respond to put a stop to the criminal activities of the biker gang even after more than 200 calls for help.
Are you crazy? You said,
"When they are ripping three people (including a baby) out of their vehicle, stomping them, slashing them, kicking them, beating them,...that's not a danger to those people's lives?"

That didn't happen and now you're saying you didn't say it.

Plus, I didn't "excuse" the undercover cop. I said clearly that he may have assessed differently than you are after the fact, and was obviously more correct than you. Decisions are made and thankfully the perps have been arrested and there were no deaths.

The more important issue is Black on White hate crime increases. If the cop was Black, maybe we have something else to discuss.

Police officer at the SUV during the beating. They even took the time to smash out a window.

I think I heard -"I didn't want to blow my cover" then it was "I wasn't near the suv". The only thing I needed to know was the DA wouldn't prosecute from police pressure. Then 3 days to come forward?

And just as scary because it looks know that the investigating police or a superior officer told the DA don't prosecute. Even more troubling is how many times are a cops misdeeds covered up in a similar fashion.

All of this could have been prevented had the motorcyclist chosen to drive responsibly,the driver of the Land Rover did the right thing and the moron that started this should go to prison for a long time and should also be made to pay for all damages.

Exposing the status of an undercover operative is dangerous and destructive to many lives and long term efforts to get in place. An undercover cop at the scene was likely accompanied by one, or more of the criminals being targeted, or in their view. Criticism of such in field decisions doesn't understand the many lives jeopardized. An undercover cop isn't going to jeopardize a year's work and incredible sacrifice.
Yeah your right a pig um I mean cops job is to watch a innocent man get beaten in front of his family LOL!!!
