police should not arrest someone who isn't committing a crime

police are the servants of the citizens not the enforcers of authority. they are culpable, and they need to learn that they are personally responsible for their actions. "following orders" is no excuse. i only saw video of one arrest and it was not a volatile situation at all. it was about as volatile a situation as watching some dudes who are playing dungeons and dragons.
