  1. The Officer will get a two-week paid vacation while this whole thing blows over.
    Then, his friends will find his actions "justifiable," and he'll be back on the streets, commiting more crimes, in no time. ??

  2. I would love to body slam that cop on some concrete.

    I'm only 5'11" 255lb

    Oh, and after. I'd spit in his face.

    Eye for an eye.

  3. All these hypocrite aholes talking about how getting slammed onto the back of your head on hard concrete can be fatal but say drejka is a murderer. Drejka responded to deadly force with his own deadly force. completely justifiable shooting and the responses from this video prove it.

  4. We’re not seeing what happened before the body slam. Show me 20 seconds before. CBS and cnn are always showing you only what they want you to see.

  5. This guy probably needed to be restrained. Most likely, but the cop tried to pummel him. I see evidence everywhere in the world, everywhere that there is no god and it is every man for himself on this planet. World War II there was 2 billion people fighting over resources not many guns, now there is 8 billion people and many guns. Blood will flow in the streets as the Christian Bible reads. Allah Akbar

  6. If I was that man I'd sue the CPD. You don't need to slam a person on the ground when he's not showing physical assault towards you. You could have killed him. And now I'm sure he's suffering brain damage. Doesn't matter if it's short term or long term brain damage. It's still wrong.

  7. Let’s not defend a drunk slob spitting in an officers face for Christ’s sake. He deserved everything he got, how are cops suppose to protect and serve these days with so many friggin whiners?!!? The officer did his job.

  8. He bounced the man's head against the sidewalk. You can see it bounce. Bet there's at least mild traumatic brain injury. Was a CT scan and MRI of his brain and neck performed? I would bet not.

    The drunk guy was wrong & stupid to spit at officer & threaten him – IF this is true. Everyone knows many cops make stuff up all the time. "Refusing arrest" the go-to. Body cam evidence of spitting? That still does NOT justify this excessive force. This cannot be a sanctioned take down.

    Too many cops are out of control like this. Violent sociopaths. Granted – they put their lives on the line and should be compensated accordingly. But there must also be strict discipline and severe punishment for abuse and dishonesty. Otherwise, they are just criminals with a badge.

  9. Well they call spitting on people assault so the action of assault was met with assault. y/n ? then change spitting to something else.

  10. he literally could have killed that intoxicated man and broken his skull wide open on that curb. Could be looked at like attempted murder.


  12. Theres a pattern of immoral, cultural values all police have become reputable to, and they are to be disgraced, by natural law, of being against the peoples psychological safety.

  13. Pokice say it don't tell the whole story???? I don't give a fu#* unless he pulled a gun or bomb there is no legal or reasonable reason for that, and should not be a lawful use of force. This stuff right here is the reason people are slowly loosing trust in police abroad in the US…… I will bet anything the cop got mad and frustrated bc the guy was drunk, high, or slow maybe even all three and thought you know what BODY SLAM and then laughed to his buddys about it later

  14. Yeah if this drunk was a black guy the mayor would be calling for the cops badge immediately and demanding he be charged with attempted murder

  15. Just another"God fearing black man" getting assaulted by a white cop. Wow!! Lol!!! I guess Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are loving this!!! And did I see the cops wearing maga hats?

  16. You find this disturbing? What about the shootings that happen, the gang violence that still happens? That's just what police are there to do. End the problem.

  17. See the cops can body slam you to death and if you defend yourself they will put bullets in you. And if you manage to survive youl be in death row. Land of the free. Like that poor guy who died after a NYC cop pushed him into a concrete slab on the floor while he was walking with headphones on, the cop misidentified him as a suspect in some petty crime and the cop is still working.

  18. Assaulting a police officer will definitely get you assaulted he's lucky he didn't get shot. What is great, one less person on welfare and food stamps

  19. Sorry but after hearing far too many times how police officers sort of rewrite the script in defense of something bad that they did I only believe what I see on video. For instance there was a viral video of the cops supposedly slamming a black 10 year old to the ground when I investigated and found the full video it turns out the kid was so unhappy that the cops were arresting his father that he was physically attacking the police I think there were a couple of rocks thrown by him the police did the soothing maneuver which is coming from the back and wrapping your arms to basically stop the kid from being able to move his arms and then very gently laid him to the ground it's too bad in today's America cuz I've been around since 1950 that everybody seems to have an agenda

  20. That should have been a leg sweep and fall on top not chance putting the man in a wheelchair for or even dead slammed on a curb could have killed him

  21. To those that comment the police in Chicago are like this the majority of the time. I can only imagine being in Law Enforcement in larger cities such as Chicago is the equivalent to being in an ongoing battle. Criminals of all types waiting to shoot someone, anyone, all for the purpose of "making a name" for themselves. Are the police on HIGH ALERT?! You bet!! And well they should be. So let's see, only ONE specific cited instance of four Chicago Police officers making a poor decision. I wonder how many HUNDREDS of instances this same day people were arrested, THAT WERE CRIMINALS DOING SOMETHING WRONG, that went to jail with little to no issue. This is what the media wants, spoon feeding us nothing but the minority of instances when things go wrong, let's see the other hundreds of times DAILY when things go right!! But they won't do that, GOOD doesn't sell.

    The man SPIT in the Officer's face!! Every action has a reaction, I would imagine this person will long remember the repercussions of his actions and not spit in an officer's face again. Now let's hope the Mayor isn't a coward and supports the men and women doing the job she will not.

  22. There's always a critical peace of information left out. Sad to see the officer didn't notice the curb , otherwise the guy would be fine aside from some cracked ribs. Bad situation.

  23. The media will bring our civilized country to it's heels if allowed!!! Their all about the $$$ratings and reporting on ANYTHING that might fuel their pathetic status amongst perpetuating violence…even at the expense of laws!!!

  24. In 2018, 399 white people were killed by police while 209 black people were killed by police. We lose more white people to police shootings every year. (for everyone who's crying racism)

  25. Omg the frail looking citizen hit his head like a rag doll.
    Was that the only thing the officer could do? Just cuff him.

  26. These ferals should have been disciplined when children. Now it's up to society. I support our uniformed personnel….

  27. Honeslty if that bum lick and spit on his face he should get slammed on his head and turn into a veggie anyone who says who cares what lead up to it he shouldn't have done that os just plan dumb

  28. I would say %70 of the police force is just disgusting. I'm just sad that police brutality became a Youtube genre and people are immune to it and not reacting aggressively anymore.

  29. What's wrong w that. Gota take someone down and he did. Dont spit on a cop or anyone. Who knows what kind of disease that dude had. Everyone questions cops but what about criminals. You wonder why chicago crime rates so high.

  30. They always always always edit out the context. So many L.E.O. haters in here, would you really want to live in a world without cops? Delusional.

  31. Excessive use of force, applied recklessly out of anger, due to mere insult and disgust. Why "mere"? Because insult and disgust are not life threatening. Slamming a person's skull forcefully against the edge of a curb is life threatening.

  32. I never know whether to give a thumbs up for good reporting, on such stories, or a thumbs down against the perpetrator/cop in the story.
