That cop couldn't act his way out of a bag.

That was pathetic.

Still, go ahead and quit your day job anyway, buddy.

looks like the cop

looks like the cop deliberately put his foot in front of the wheel hoping it would be run over. I am sure he will file a law suit. He probably figured anyone driving that kind of a car is rich.

yeah- im sensing there may be something to that as well

who better than a beat cop knows to keep your body clear of the car & wheels. The car has "settle outta court" written all over it doesnt it? He was aware of the cell camera and he was aware that the view of the wheel may be blocked. A less than honorable opportunist could fake the injury until he could meet his buddy somewhere and actually drive over his foot to look nice for the x-rays ;)

It takes a certain personality to be (and want to be) a cop

or a teacher
or a fireman
or a volunteer at a soup kitchen.

Be polite, let each do their job and don't drive over anyones foot. Of the 4, a NYC beat cop is the most likely (according to personality type) to drag your ferrari-driving, young azz out onto the street an be not-so-gentle about addressing his concerns. imho neither participant in this video were at the top of their game that day.

Polite?

This guy didn't say anything to the cop. The cop pretended to get injured and then proceeded to assault an innocent man. Why? Because he knew he could get away with it. He's probably done it before, and he'll probably do it again.

maybe

"he pretended..."
"he knew..."
"he probably..."
"he'll probably..."

you know more about this cop's thought processes based on a short video than I know about my husband after 5 years of marriage.
There are plenty of perfectly good cop abuse videos to choose from. If we MUST have one anti-cop video a day on the DP, Id rather see an old one that is irrefutably over the top, than a fresh one that stimulates debate regarding the liability of NYC valets. Also ill say "all cops are bad" if you get rid of my down vote. It hurts my feelings.

Isn't being a ...

Isn't being a jerk a prerequisite to becoming a cop? Rarely have I met one that wasn't.

As cop your main job is to

As cop your main job is to hurt people that have harmed no one... sounds pretty jerky to me.

I use the term...

I use the term "The new blue mafia"

Was hoping for

more damage

Originally from youtube

The man attempted to get directly in his car and leave because the car was in the Hotel's Valet possession up until that point. He had just received the keys from the valet. Notice the cones. The cop shouldn't have been writing a ticket in the first place he should have been dealing with whoever runs the valet if there isn't supposed to be a car there. The woman that then does get in the car is from the MTV show The Hills.

Two Jerks Here

1. The guy who was dumb enough to attempt to merely drive off in his car....this doesn't need any further explanation.

2. The cop who was writing the ticket for a nonexistent violation, and who, although within his protocols, arrested the dude, but did not have to :
a- Put himself in harm's way for a parking "infraction".
b- "Fake" that his foot was run over.
The other cop "perpetuated an assault" by grabbing the guy's leg and taking him down in a "calculated act" of injury to a citizen.

I would also add that the black cop "used" this to attempt a "disability pension" based upon his "supposed injury".
He wouldn't have been able to pull this guy out of the car with such force if his foot had really been run over.
Expect this crap in Tampa...The "locals" are not to be messed with and they play for keeps...that is a fact.

2 jerks..I agree!

What really ticked me off was at the end,you could clearly see the damage to the car's paint from the idiot patrolman leaning and wallering all over it. Have these a-holes never seen a Ferrari before? Why would they so intentionally damage the car? The car didn't do anything! For the many thousands it will cost, I'd be sueing...Not only that, but the value of the car just tanked as any paint work will ruin the originality.
The un-necessary roughness was over the top....I'd be contacting a lawyer.

Why would they damage that car you ask?

Because they can! Because they won't be held accountable for any damage. When cops damage people and/or property it's the property owner or the tax payer on the hook. These guys are hired because they like to hurt people that have harmed no one...they're just doing their job you know.
