They always always always edit out the context. So many L.E.O. haters in here, would you really want to live in a world without cops? Delusional.

Spitting in the face is considered an assault and in some states it is a Felony. The suspect got what he deserved

Luckily, we forced CPD to have body cams strapped on and operating.
And CPD immediately releases video if it helps them.

I cringed when I saw the back of the suspect's head hit the concrete curb. Regardless of whether or not the suspect deserved what he got, getting body slammed and hitting the back of your head on concrete can be fatal. That's why boxing and MMA does not allow blows to the back of the head / neck. He might not have had a loss of consciousness, but he could suffer from a slow bleed in the brain that might not affect him until weeks later. If he doesn't get surgery to drain the blood and relieve pressure on the brain, he could die.
