    Why can't these *******s identify themselves when they're off duty? The guy looks like a skinhead, so maybe assuage their suspicion of you by showing your badge?

    Reminds me of Elementary school when kids use to cut across Mrs. F's lawn on the corner. She had two giant German Sheppard's that she would threaten us with. She did have the nicest lawn on the block bar none. lol

    Life is so much simpler when you stay off other peoples land.

    Haven't watched the video with sound yet but throwing a punch at an armed person probably is likely to result in them taking it out.

    he might have, but you don't see a badge anywhere. after all the videos and outcry he might be out of a job soon.

    This appears to be a situation in which all parties involved acted poorly.

    kids did not know any better, the adult should have his head out of his rear and pick his battles wisely.

    I can only base my opinions on the video provided, but it does appear that at some point at least a couple of the kids made deliberate physical contact with the officer. It's kind of hard to say you weren't part of the problem when the video shows you executing a flying tackle at someone.

    Both sides got overheated and made bad decisions.

    the unidentified cop is holding a teen against his will based on nothing more than the kid standing up for the girl the cop seemingly called a stupid "rhymes with aunt" because OMG she stepped on his lawn :rolleyes:

    His actions don't justify the actions of the kids and vice-versa. There's a level of personal responsibility that needs to be taken by both sides.

    He's a cop. A cop is supposed to be held to a far and away higher standard than children. Agreed?

    All those teens in stupid mode breaking windows and were arrested need to have the butts whooped. Their parents need to be held accountable for their minors actions too.

    What does that have to do with the incident this thread is about? Unless you're trying to tar groups here.

    Judging from the video, it's not even close. You generally need a damn good reason to place a single hand on a kid like that. Anyone who wasn't an officer would have been taken in on that alone. As for the kids, I don't expect teenagers to act like miniature adults. I expect adults to act like adults, and I expect cops to have some minimum level of competency with firearms. Unless there's a clear case of assault here, I hope the guy ends up behind bars.

    He was pushed, swung upon, and "tackled" back through the bush.

    That said, guys still an effing moron that shouldn't be on any police force.

    What is the protocol for when an off duty is allowed to access his service weapon?

    Sure, but that doesn't excuse the kids' behavior. There's no way it escalated to that point without the kids provoking. The courts can decide what the equitable consequences are for all involved, but I don't think we should give a free pass to people that were clearly involved in making a bad situation worse.

    Why did he pull out his service weapon unless he intended to use it?

    Depends on the jurisdiction, most are allowed to carry off duty.

    He could join Hillary's detail and protect her during those hikes she is so fond of.

    Carry and use are different. Are off duty cops allowed to just wave their gun around.
