Police on Beating: “This is what we’re trained to do”

The Victoria cops in this video stomped Tyler Archer, who was actually a victim looking for help from police!

He is now suing the Victoria police with another man who was beaten by cops at the same time.

When Victoria police chief Jamie Graham looked at this video footage, he told the Province newspaper, “I know many officers that have looked at [the video]and they’re not shocked at all. This is use of force. This is what we’re trained to do.”

    i- AGREE what we are seeing on you tube is very similar to Gestapo tactics, if anyine remembers HITLER.that is how he ruined so many lives, he was brutal so bad that his own officers tried to kill him a few times, the actions we see in so many places, police hold ups , jails almost anywhere the police seem to think it is s. s. time that was hitlers elite bunch of rotters. TO men women and children and anyone who was there got their hatred spewed out on them, these cops who perpetratethose horrendous beating haveGOT TO BE PUNISHED.not investigated by their own with aweek off withwages untill the investigation is over and then back to same old business as usual, no cover ups , someone other than their ownshould investigate, for one f. b. i. would do a more thorough job and we would probably police as they are supposed to be which is well liked and does work for the people not against them and they would also get respect like it should be not hatred and fear .

    I thought that guy looked a little big for getting picked on by drunks. Maybe he’s a skinhead who skipped his last head shave. That weasel, pretending to be the vic so he could get sympathy.

    The guy in the vid was not the victim in the beating. That victim is severely injured, out cold, and lying in a doorway of a local business next to the bar entrance. The victim was never touched by police. The 2 shown getting the boots, were the attackers.

    How about focusing on the fact that 3 cops showed up to break up a 7 on 1? If these drunken goons weren’t starting the issue in the first place this event never would have happened. And personally, I think they got their karma for what they did. I’m sure the actual victim is probably in a lot worse shape.

    Why are police held to lower and not high standards of behaviour O.o

    Here’s what will happen. That Nazi will be suspended for a few weeks WITH PAY. Now that’s a punishment that will deter others from doing the same. He’ll never do anything like that again, after the agony of being paid by the taxpayers to do absolutely nothing. That’s a cop’s worst fear, that he’ll get paid to watch TV and drink beer. Cops hate not working. What could possibly be worse, free donuts? That would be cruel and unusual punishment.

    So was the cop serving him or protecting him ……. because that’s what they say they do.

    Remember when cops tell you to JUMP, don’t ask them “How high ?”, ask them “How high SIR”.

    It seems that American police work habits have wormed their way up north. May God be with you crazy canucks, these are dark times we’re living in.

    There is a large # of PIGS who quit because they didn’t realize when they signed up that they would be required to: lie, cheat, rob, beat, degrade,oppress, be-little innocent civilians. Most of all, they didn’t realize that they would have to be a part of NUMEROUS cover-ups and become guilty of an array of crimes by association.

    All young cops today are angry, ignorant and most likely come from a background of being teased and ostracized.
    What better a medium to take out one’s aggressions on but the public? Frustrated, over-testosteroned, undereducated
    ignorant fucks.

    Peace.

    All these so-called “peace officers” should be issued Gestapo uniforms!

    I’ve been saying for years that the bacon are trained to respond to ALL situations in a violent manner.

    I’ve seen people piss off some very nasty people, appologize and walk away. Try doing that with a pig. The cops are there to protect the rich and powerful from you and I. Prospective cops are not picked for their grasp of the charter rights of individuals. They are shock troops plain and simple. Most good cops quit the force a long time ago because of the fact that they are denied the use of discretion.

    The term To Serve and Protect is really To Intimidate and Incarcerate. Legalization would destroy the pork industry.

    This is hardcore proof that cops are “JACK BOOTED THUGS” and they will stop at nothing to support their agenda. This will continue until all of us are either behind bars or dead. To protect and serve, MY ASS! Then how come every time I have a chance meeting with so called law enforcement officer the SOB has a chip on their shoulder the size of Manhattan. That’s not law enforcement, that is brute force intimidation! Legalize Cannabis and put the whole damn lot of them out of work!!!

    The officers should be fired and reassessed? They should be fired and denied any sort of government job, ever. Unless that job involves being the cook in whatever prison they are sent to. IMO, if you’re a cop, doing something like this should land you life in prison, no less.

    Going back to the story though, what is this kid doing that he managed to get jumped by thugs AND the cops in one night? I don’t buy his story at all. But that doesn’t make what the cops did any more right. If he was in the wrong, they could have arrested him without violence, but now we’ll never know.

    Searching “Victoria” on youtube produces the beating as the first result. I’m sure the city of victoria is proud. Good going you bald-headed prick motherfucker! This pig is clearly getting off on beating this guy up, and the other pigs are letting him do it! How our government constantly manages to hire the must useless clowns of society will never cease to amaze me…

    This is police brutality plain and simple, there was no reason for that officer to kick him in the damn ribs, and the knee was just icing on the cake.
