Police Officers wonder why they get no respect.
This video explains why. All these officers must be held accountable, all of them. If that were my son, I'd be hunting you down like the animals you are. This story is not going away Rohoboth Beach. Having out of control police officers is unacceptable.
And it damn sure better not get kicked under the rug......
Too many people are watching this one!!!!!

I'm from Illinois and saw the brutality of your police department on t5he internet. Believe me, when I consider a vacation to the beach, your city will not be considered. Kicking a man in the head after he has been tazed several times and is cuffed? And in front of his pregnant wife? These are not police officers. They are thugs. I will be following this story on the net. I have friends that are police and respect them highly. These thugs need to be fired.

I would say this is unbelievable...but I know first hand that RB cops are pretty much power hungry abusers. I am a middle aged white, professional female. About a year ago, while not being tazed, I went through a similary ordeal with Officer Whitman and one of his (way too fat to be a usefull officer) colleagues. I spent 3 hours being humiliated,harrassed, almost placed into cuffs, put in the cruiser, searched over NOTHING..but their boredom. Oh and back at the police station...nothing but mockery and laughter amongst the good old boys. I came into town from out of state for work needs for the day and after a dinner out with my partner, I was stopped (for allegedly ignoring a traffic signal, which did not happen), then it went rediculous from there. They could not even prove I had done a single thing wrong. They refused to let my partner talk to me or let her know I was ok.(She was in a separate vehicle and scared to death when she fianlly found me). They towed my car (to the tune of $200+) and took me into custody. FOR NOTHING. And no, I was not "resisting arrest"..just in shear shock over what was happning. Ironically, I read this story. Its the SAME officer. To this date I dont even care to go to RB or pationize its businesses. Who needs this? And the fact that these officers were willing to literally damage someones reputation and livilihood
for NOTHING but their entertainment, was unbelieveable at best. I guess it was a long winter for them without tourists to pick on. I will never EVER forget Whitman's face (or his fat partner) and I will never forget that evening. It was surreal. So when I look at this video, it makes me sick. I guess if I had not cooperated, I could have been kicked in the head as well. It matters not what this guy said prior to the video. He did cooperate to start, but repeatedly shocking the hell out of someone and then kicking them in the head would certainly only exacerbate a tense situation. A sound person (let along cop) would/should know that! Whitman needs to go. He is not a public servant...he and others seem to be self servants for their little man insecurities and power needs. Watch your back in RB. Its not the crooks its the cops you need to be aware of.
