This would have been So different if it was Tom Roof and everyone knows it! Or if it was any family member of the police or any other big name in this town.... If somebody is in the process of being handcuffed and they are resisting then the police are to use any force necessary to get them restrained. But since he was already restrained then he is no longer a threat to them or anyone else....He wasnt even kicking at them....And what is taking him down to the ground going to accomplish anyway? Nothing.....Holbrook should be fired with no questions asked and prosecuted He doesnt have the right tempormant for the job... We are not aloud to take somebody down to the ground just because we didnt like what they said So Why should the police!
I agree

If you listen to the conversation and comments made by the officers they were baiting Tim to be able to beat him. If you use an argumentative tone with a drunk he normally argues back... FIRE THEM BOTH !!! they used his impairment as a reason to beat him up... The BLUE WALL IN KENTON NEEDS BROKEN... We need Honorable Law Enforcement... if they were any good would our City be in the shape it is in? It did not get that way over night! I know Tim was guilty of public intoxication and maybe disturbing the peace but when is that a death sentence? and the Court is supposed to do the Judgment and conviction not the police!!!!

Tom Roof would never act in a manner in which would have him arrested. Therefore, he'll never get arrested. He's a great person who does many great things for people, including myself over the years, and this community. Stop being a bitter low life and use your brain. That town is full of idiotic scum.

I in absolutely no way what so ever meant anything bad towards Tom Roof...I know for a fact as well that he is a great person and all that u mentioned about him is true...I simply was saying that IF it was Tom Roof being arrested and IF Tom roof said the same thing and acted the way Tim did, I would just about bet my life on it, that Mr. Holbrook would not have threatend him by saying Get up before you get hurt and he sure wouldnt have tripped him causing him to hit his head on the desk...I was just hypothetically saying.

He was pushing from the cop
he was cussing at the cops
He could spit on them, try to grap their gun or head butt them

It's his fault he got drunk or high.
it's his fault he didn't follow cops commands

The cops were being smart @sses and def need retrained... They both used poor judgement and drugs were not an issue and The last time i checked Getting drunk was not illegal...And if it was your brother or family member that it happend to You might see it differently.

I will agree that there are officers on the force that have no business being a cop. However you cannot group all law enforcement together. I've watch the video, Tim repeatedly disobey oders from the officer. Finally the officer asked for help, so another officer came in to assist. As most of you will agree it is standard procedure for cops to complete search someone before they can continue processing. Watch the video & you will see that, that is what they were trying to. The cop kept putting his legs between Tims so that the other officer could search him. Everytime the officer tried to pat down his legs Tim would try to bring his legs back together. I wonder why Tim didn't want the cops searching him? Tim hitting his head is not what put him in a coma or what is keeping him in a coma. His years of alchol & drug abuse did that. The cops cannot put someone in lock up with other inmates if they are a danger to themselves or other. I think that this is a terrible thing that has happened & my prayers are with Tim & his family, but remember the cops didn't cause Tim to pull a knife at Salsas, Tim did that & he needs to be held responsible for his actions.

Was the knife he "pulled" the one he was eating with? a comment said he refused to get up for them until he finished his meal. not exactly the same connotation as attacking them with it is there? The Police still are only to arrest not to judge or EXECUTE...

You can assume that his injuries would not have been that bad But nobody will ever know for sure
why

why would they tell him to sit, ok then..now stand up and spread em..ok then go to one knee...ok then, how bout i slam you down head first while you are defenseless..and then once they realize they messed up, the flop his head and let it bounce on the floor again...real big men...yea he was talk'n smack, but what is he gonna do? he's drunk and in cuffs. They let what he said get to them and they punished him for it. Now being a convict, they will try to get him for drunk and disorderly, resisting arrest, weapons under disability, all sorts of crap just to make him out to be the bad guy! Mark my words, they will trump charges on him if he makes it out alive

Wow what an idiot. Do you just listen to the gossip in town or have you read the released reports. Per reports & witness statements he threatened people with the knife. Duh thats why the cops were called. It doesn't matter what kind of knife it was, threatened someone with a knife. Seriously, did you really just threaten the police on here.
Please

So that justifies attempted murder or possibly murder? I don't think so get real!!

Attempted murder would mean they meant to kill him. Now I think they were out of line but anybody that thinks they intended to kill this man is an idiot. Did they figure out how tall he was and exactly where they would need to stand when they took him down so that he would hit his head in the the best possible spot to kill him. if you honestly think this is what they intended to do to him, why wouldn't they have did it an easier way
