In reply to comment: Agreed. Excessive. Stomping (see in situ)

I agree on the handstomp 100%

I do however understand hitting him anytime you felt him try and get up. He did keep trying to leave the area and they put him in check real quick.

As far as the comment above yours. Yes if it were a cop we would have issues because they are supposed to be TRAINED to subdue a person without needing to punch them in the face. They also have a taser, beat stick and a gun on them IF they need to.

These are just everyday people who used what they had at their disposal to keep this guy on the ground. I think if he would have just laid down flat no one would have punched him in the face once down.

Back to the hand stomp. That was overkill because the guy wasn't trying to punch anyone or grab anyone. If you want to try and stomp on something I think going for a leg would have made more sense since he kept trying to use them to get up and leave.

Even once the cop tried to grab him, he was still trying to leave the area and then got tossed to the ground. The cop also still needed help getting the cuffs on him. He was struggling even if at times it looked as if he was passive.

In the end, he is lucky he didn't get his ass shot and only got punched a few times and a hurt hand. - My site on getting my little family prepped for whatever might come our way. - My site on growing marijuana
