The part of ^^THIS^^ that bothers me is:
Why did the cops feel the need to cuff this guy?
The officers were calmly strolling down the sidewalk. They were not seeking cover? They were not frantically waiving civilians out of harms way?
They were obviously not to concerned with their safety or the publics safety by there own demeanor.
This observation tells me that their claim of containing a "dangerous" situation is pure BS. Nothing more than yet another example of power drunk dick heads "instigating" a situation with a citizen. Why? Because the guy was filming them? Goading them?
Who gives a damn. We pay these guys to be professional peace officers. We train them to maintain there composure and not react to guys like this unless there is an actual danger.
These two simply did not like there authority being questioned and responded with force in a situation that did not warrant it.
I'm all for Officers defending themselves but most of them use detention and investigations as an excuse to demean citizens. It's what these two Blue Light Gang Members were doing and the video is going to guarantee a large settlement from the taxpays... who in turn must demand the removal of thugs like this from the force.

I not saying the arrest was warranted. And I LOVE animals, but come on.
I think everyone pretty much agrees its the owners fault.
