The headline should read, "video SHOWS" cops cracking ribs and stipping him naked. This man NEVER made even ONE move towards the cops who approached him!...These dogs should be tried in our highest court possible, and if aquitted, we should...????? Unexcuseable!!!!!!(Cops used to be sometimes called pigs for very VALID reasons).
As Americans, under NO circumstances; can we EVER allow the gov; aka (cops, to force us to learn to tolerate this behavior. We will never!!!
They are the ones who are hired and trusted to protect us!! But everyone seems to be allowing it slowly; but surely.........Sad and Very Unfortunate.
Wake up people!!!!!!!!!!
Where do we go from here??????????
Wherever it is, it must be swift...

these so called law enforcement officers should be in prision, not jail. handcuffed to the bars and tazed,beaten,kicked,stripped, and not even have there RIGHTS read to them.Mr Davis should be in prison too,he let it happen,and watched too. Id call it attemped murder,If anybody else did a beating like this Im sure that would be the CHARGE! Clean out the good ole boys, we need new people not ones that are in each others wallet.Its all about the PAYOUT!!!

The cops must be on here putting X's. Who in their right mind would disagree with ANY and ALL of these comments? Only one of their own.
Ya'll should go door to door with a petition to oust them. Or if you are afraid, start one online. That way, no one can touch it. And demand that our governor tell the people what justifies these animals still having jobs and not being arrested for abuse!!!(the very least)>>>
Over the years, people with power brainwash us into thinking they are protecting us. But in the end, they only protect each other. Never forget, they DO work for the common people. YOU and ME> Good ole boys always get away with murder.
caint we all get along

Most cops are on a power trip and think they are above the law. That 90% gives the other 10% a BAD name.

Has anyone seen the enhanced video? Right before the beating begins, one cop says 'he is a douche. lets fuck him up.' Later on, one cop is heard saying 'you want a turn?'

They need to rot in jail and should have to leave the county in shame. I hate it for the families of the cops but this calls for extremely harsh punishment. Abuse of power is very serious.

All of us should actually look at the video without the preconceived idea of what happened.

you should look a little closer at the video mr mccord did not beat or tase mr ring. matter fax mr mccord could not see and was hurting from were he was hit in the privates. all we can see from the video is mr mccord ask mr ring to take his hand out of his pocket and pull his hand out. try to handcuff him but mr ring fought him that is when he was taken to the ground. that is when mr mccord was poke, pepper spray, and kick in the privates. so don't blame mr mccord for the beating of mr ring or tasering county police do not use taser. my take on the matter is mr mccord should go back to work and never been let go. bad call by the police dept.on letting mr mccord go. need to put him back to work. the other three need to be lock up and the key throw away. mr ring is not a saint his self.

This man was NEVER arrested until after he was almost beaten to death. He had no reason to take his hands out of his pockets on a cold day, yet the thugs tried to beat him to death because of that. Channel 4 news, TBI, FBI all are on this investigation. Civil rights law suit has been filed. Sheriff Clark and another deputy beating this man and tasing him in jail to impress a stupid woman who wanted to see "someone tased."
From the photos of these thugs, it is clear they weigh around 300 pounds each. The people in this county and this state should contact the governor, congressmen and representatives and demand something be done. If you are silent you are part of the problem. ALL CHARGES AGAINST DARRIN RING HAVE BEEN DROPPED BECAUSE HE IS INNOCENT.

Why are ALL the law enforcement personnel in the Waverly area so FAT? Is this a requirement for employment? It would seem that their weight would impair their ability to do their job.

Apparently you have not seen ALL the law enforcement personnel in the Waverly area! Please don't generalize unless you know it to be true! I don't disagree - Law enforecement should be somewhat fit and capable, but we definitely already have some who fit that description.

WHO WAS FOUND GUILTY OF A DUI FRI, FEB 17, 2012...DARRIN RING! He is such a fine and productive member of society, LOL! Channel 4 really should tell the whole story, not just what Lockert wants them to report. Try talking to some people who are NOT felons, like Randy Cotham, or people that don't have vendettas against the sheriff's family members, like Michelle McCarson, or a public defender who has been harassing many of the deputies family members since the story broke. Come on now, it's really time that people see the light.
SO WHAT

SO a DUI means that the tape didnt show him getting beat? Channel 4 has invited you to tell the whole story. Tell it!!!!!!!!!
