- Don't know anymore
Youre trying to rationalize what cops did in response to what they were dealing with prior to the video. I want to see the entire situation from beginning to end before i can say the cops were out of line.IMO the defense has a hurdle to overcome. Yes George is a criminal and yes he swallowed drugs. However, this man was hand cuffed and held down for over 9 minutes. There was no reason, the officers couldn't of sat him up. 1 there was plenty of back up to make sure he didn't resist or run off. 2 he was in handcuffs, 3 they had already let him sit down prior to this point in the arrest. The officer have a duty to continue to change during the course of an arrest. And the officer did not appear to re-adjust. I dont think it will be a murder charge. But maybe manslaughter.
