Let Lady Justice deal with him. He completely surrendered and that Cop
was completely off his rocker busting him in the head like that with his boot!

Of course the Cop was ticked off BUT the guy totally surrendered!

There is not enough information to go on in the story as is.
Did he have like three grams of marijuana on him or something? Then I don't agree.
If he is a thief then I will personally buy a new night stick and a dozen "Crispy Creams" for the officer that crushes his scull or at least leaves him drooling into a cup for the rest of his life.

city should not pay. Why the hell should tax payers pay for police brutality. Policemen in the video should pay. US: one screwed-up country.

Those two cops are no better than him. Three people should have went to jail. I'm sure they were not trained to respond in this way and I can only sit back and smile at the fact that they had know idea that a camera was on their asses.

That kick in the head was unnecessary, the suspect was down and ready to be cuffed.

Party 'till you die!    

He must have committed 'contempt of cop' (a very real term). It happens when you get the police really pissed off and once that adrenaline starts to flow, watch out! But in a way, it reminds me of how snipers are treated in wartime. They would often fight until they ran out of ammo or were cornered and they suddenly gave up, usually resulting in them getting shot. Sometimes suspects fight with all they have and then cry game over in the same way. But kicking him in the head was definitely over the limit, since he did finally stop. It's hard to say whether or not he resisted after that, when he was getting cuffed (and taking rib shots). He also might have resisted during cuffing out of fear of being hurt further or anger because of what happened. Either way, these cops are going to be facing a few review boards after this. Perhaps this is one of the few benefits of having cameras almost everywhere in society. Just being brutally honest and making some guesses without actually being there and knowing all that happened during the chase and subsequent arrest.

I suppose not EVERY cop is like those two jerks, but on balance, the police service attracts bullies and jerk offs who are motivated by the opportunity to beat on people. Consequently we have a riot every few years. These cops should be fired immediately. They got caught this time. Who knows how bad it would have been had their not been a chopper hovering over head.

Question is: Will all the white people of LA riot in the streets and destroy property to express their anger at this? Loot TVs, break windows, set small businesses ablaze? Can't wait to see all of that on the 5 o'clock news!

The perp was unthreatening at the time, not resistive.
Who have they got working as cops there? This one is on the edge. He needs to cool off.
His victim may have neck or skull damage from that kick. Probably briused kidneys too from the other cretin.

That is TOTAL crap. There was no reason to kick that man in the head after he surrendered. I'm glad they caught that on tape.
