Little Rock Police Slam Man Into Glass Door: COMMENTS

CAUGHT ON VIDEO:Cops Slapped-On-Wrist For Police Brutality & Criminal Cover-up- as reported by FOX16 News Little Rock

Ok, now this is what I don't understand. There were a couple of officers in Alexander that were SUPPOSEDLY raicially profiling here awhile back. The claim was that they stopped Hispanic people SOLELY based on their skin color and the Alexander city council and the Plaintiffs attorney screamed for their heads on a stick. NOW, a LR officer has done everything but put this man's head through a glass door and all he's gotten is a 30 day suspension??? Where's LR's lawsuit? Why doesn't this officer lose HIS job? I guess if your deparment's big enough and has enough money you can do whatever you want.

After watching the video more closely, I noticed that not only does the officer slam the victim into the door thusly breaking the glass, he also slams the victim into the door jam quite hard. Why is this guy still working for the Little Rock Police Department. The spokesman for the LRPD said that when "we" are in error... I'm sorry officer Hastings, but "we" are not in error, the police officer employed by the LRPD was in error and should be fired at once. I also don't understand why there is not more outrage in regards to this incident. We see this sort of thing every day, officers going "postal" and tasing little old ladies, children and people running out onto a baseball field for "crimes" that wouild amount to a small fine. What has gone wrong here? Could it be that the police of the USA have been given too much leeway in the way they handle things? Is the stress of the job too much for them? Regardless of the problem, officers like this one should be fired at once. I certainly would not trust this officer to handle himself professionally if he showed up at a situation I was involved in (God Forbid). FIRE THIS GUY AT ONCE!! Why do we as citizens put up with this brutality? Demand this guy be fired!

This incident happened back in August and why is it that the public is just now finding out about it ? And why the hell is he back at work ? He should have been fired and arrested for assault. You can bet if it wasn't a homeless man, this would have EXPLODED and this officer probably would not be in his position today. Just because the victim is homeless, he doesn't have the resources to fight the system. Yes, he committed several crimes but those officers are suppose to be trained to control their temper and actions. Because the victim did suffer injuries, that cop should have been FIRED !

LindaB has hit the nail on the head. I don't understand how this officer kept his job and wan not arrested for assault. But since he is behind the "blue line", assault charges cannot be filed against him because he is protected from such things due to the nature of the job. This is SO WRONG. Assault is assault, regardless of who you are. This officer should be fired at once, arrested and have to pay a huge fine.

WOW!! I know they have a dangerous job, and I thank them for protect us, but this police corruption has gotten way out of hand, going to work with alcohol in system, being drunk in public, assaulting your wife or girlfreind, abusing suspects the list goes on and on.

LindaB - 5/18/2010 9:29 AM

The officer needs to be FIRED or better yet FIRED and charged for assult. If anyone treated another person in such a manner they would have charges filed against them, go to court and pay fines, possible probation or whatever else a judge felt was appropriate. Why are police officers not held to the same standard? They are expected to provide an example to the community and the youth imparticular, what kind of an example is this?? I personally feel an officer that wants to act like a thug should be treated like one. SEND THE MAN TO JAIL that is what he would do to me if I behaved in such a manner.

People wonder why people run from the police? This is one reason. And to you people that defend the police, you need to look at all the cases of excessive force in Arkansas for the past year and what happens to people in jail, many for traffic violations. Look at man who died in Lonoke County detention and man who died in Pope County detention for starters. Both of those covered by news past year. But news media does not cover excessive force claims the way they do arrests coverage.

Hey there Pauly and Sthrnrsh, right on man, right on. I agree with the both of you in every way. Its always the good guy who is to blame, they never see the other side of the story, like what this dumb*ss probably said or did to the cop. Your rite pauly if the cop was "White".... that's just another reason for these ppl to sue. Later!

JustMe - 5/19/2010 8:27 AM

True there are two sides to every story. Also true that it doesn't show what took place before we saw what WAS actually captured on video. I think the point it that slamming a handcuffed person into a glass door hard enough to break it is excessive under ANY circumstance. If he was being that much of a problem the officer should have radioed inside the jail for assistance.

richardson - 5/18/2010 8:02 PM

First of all, I would like to know why the other video is not being shown that Fox 16 recorded. There is always 2 sides and they want everyone to see only one side of the story. It is best to let as much of the story you have be seen. A video only show whats being recorded. What all happen before the recording.

TREE HUGGERS UNITE! Should be your mottos. I wish that the system started harsher punishment. Your mommas spank'd you growing up and what now......? You get 3 hots and a cot for killing someone? Bull crap.......the criminal justice system has failed US...all of US. Harsher punishment, tougher jails. The police barely have an powers anymore. They can't do anything and these criminals know it. But its ok. You all can sit back and whine all you want. I'll be there to console you when your stuff gets stolen, or they rip your homes up, or when they rape and murder people you know. And i'll just sit there and hold your hand and tell you that everythings alright; nothing will be the same and that the guy that did this doesn't care. Maybe that will make you feel better. You people sicken me by the way you judge and dont know what happened for that man to get arrested. You dont see what happens off camera that leads up to that. GROW up people. "his rights his rights" is all i'm hearing. "Fire the cop" what so can you get some Barney Fife to replace him to run away when the crap hits the fan, when the situation gets scary? Police put up with more bull from the public than you will ever know and they swollow their pride 99% of the time and put away their personal feelings and still get blamed for not caring..........They do care, but what they feel can't exceed what the law allows them to do. I'm not making an excuse for what happened here, just saying that you should read the prior before you judge on the partial.

I see my post was taken down saying that if the officer was white that the NAACP would be involved is not racist its the truth so tell me why you took it off

Thirty days was not "appropriate" in any way shape or form. Those doors and windows in the river market are made from safety glass which makes them much harder to break- and speaks to just how excessive the force was. This was an unnecessary use of force on a man who was already subdued and cuffed. This officer should have been fired period. I do not want my taxes being paid to officers who abuse their authority that way and I doubt many other Arkansans do either. Those who cannot properly use the authority they have been given should have it taken away. Giving them a light punishment and then letting them back on the streets to do the same things over again is dangerous and will end up costing tax powers even more in the end from lawsuits. FIRE HIM!

Myleigh - 5/18/2010 2:04 PM

There was no sense in this officer to do what he did. Shows how much you can trust our law system.. He should be punished and fired.

hootie - 5/18/2010 12:22 PM

Well, since the River Market is his usual beat those of us who frequent that area should beware of this jerk.

JustMe - 5/18/2010 10:30 AM

Pauly, I think everybody on here has complained about the officer. Black, white or pink with purple polka dots he was in the wrong.
