    As for doorbells, I don't like the Ring "cool down timer" where once a motion has triggered it, another event doesn't cause a new recording to start for a couple minutes. (Example, I walk up to the door, peek in the window, walk away. Ring alerts and starts recording for the initial walk up and sees me walk away. What it didn't record or alert to was the follow up where half a minute later I walk back up to the door and kick it in.)

    My wife and I have Nest (now Google) and I pay for the 5 day continuous video recording. And we love that we can go back throughout those five days and make a short or long of a clip for any event we want.

    I do believe Ring has a similar continuous record mode though, so it just goes to whom you trust more with your data. I'm already pretty deep with Google, so I'm fine with keeping Nest.
    I dont have a cool down timer on mine...I know this because in the summer a spider always sets it off like 5 times a night usually back to back unless I turn off notifications for an hour.

    Sadly, I think this is on point.

    What is the Dumpy_white_cop / white_cop ratio? 90%? 98%?

    These are small d1cks who went gunning for a way to compensate.

    End the Right.

    We let perpetual drunk drivers back on the road to kill people, and this case he needs to use any force for a simple freaking tag? Seriously?

    Let him run, take the car. The loss of the car will be punishment enough.

    There was zero reason this needed to be escalated beyond giving a ticket, and if he ran away, take the car.

    And then to the "resist arrest" concept- do people really expect complete submission? That the driver would totally accept being arrested and taken someplace just for a freaking tag? He was just trying to run- let him, what's the loss?
    Why can't you address what I wrote?

    Its very well possible the situation should have never graduated to a struggle in the first place but that's a different topic.

    To be clear I lean towards the argument the cop is guilty of a crime here and very possibly murder.

    Same.

    A couple days ago I saw a Tweet that said multiple shots were fired; so while viewing that footage last night, when the cop locked eyes I though "oh my God the cop is going to fire at him too."

    If you are such a bad cop your choices comes down to letting a man run against using deadly force, let him go.

    How hard is this to understand?

    I work in a field that’s inherently more dangerous than being a police officer. We’re trained how to properly restrain patients to keep both their safety and ours the top priority, assuming they become dangerous enough to warrant being restrained in the first place. If at any point during the hold the patient is in an unsafe position, we let them go. If they warrant being restrained again, we try again. If they’re calmer, or they walk/run away, we don’t chase them down and restrain them. It’s a constant assessment of the situation. I’d get fired on the spot for excessive force against a patient, not least of which because most of them are children/adolescents. My leeway for force is far narrower than for police officers, and yet I likely have more instances on a daily basis where I may need to use it.
    For this officer, non-lethal force could have been used, especially once he gained the upper hand and was on top of the dude.

    That guy is a straight up murderer. Defending him even a little is disgusting.

    This is what you see in the video.

    First, as noted by others, the person filming the incident does a horrible job. Good portions of the video are simply footage of the grass and sidewalk at the feet of the operator of the cellphone camera.

    When they bother to point the camera at the incident in question, you see a white, male cop essentially wrestling with a black, male detainee.

    The footage (again, that we can see) basically shows the cop trying to wrestle the black male to the ground, pretty much unsuccessfully. It's three plus minutes of hand to hand combat. The cop makes at least one command to stop fighting him. Part way through the footage you hear what sounds like a taser being discharged (the narrator, whoever that is, seems to confirm this). You then hear multiple commands from the cop to the black male demanding that he let go of the taser, as they continue to wrestle.

    The final footage shows the black male on his hands and knees, with the cop on the man's back, and the cop reaches to his holster to grab his gun, and fires.

    I'm not certain anyone is going to jail for this incident.
