What certainly can't be defended is that one cop doing that malicious knee drop thing on the guy. That could have broken his ribs or even caused serious internal injury. And what was the suspect doing at the time other than just lying there? Nothing.

Come on Matthew, get real. Now, I do not always support the cops; as a matter of fact I lean the other way. But, in this case the cops showed plenty of restraint. They tried over and over to calmly get this boob to put his robe back on; and he refused. So, after awhile they said enough is enough. This boob got exactly what was coming to him. No more and no less. And, the cops handled the goofy situation well. Good job cops!

The guy didn't seem to know what was going on, but he clearly wasn't hurting anyone.

He was harmless and high; and didn't do ANYTHING to warrant the rough treatment these cops subjected him to.

I think the police had every right he wasn't compliant and refused to put his clothes on, they gave him every opportunity then he resisted the intial handcuffing when he didn't complie when he was committing a crime called indecent exposer and resisting arrest

The cops acted way to nice to this guy and tried to reason with him. If this was Oakland they would have shot him.
