    Correct, give the poor guy a second chance, but this time, make sure there are no cameras and give him a tire iron. Maybe this time he can kill the guy.

    Just one more example of what happens when the police aren't kept on a short leash.

    The Chicago PD is completely and utterly out of control. It should stand as a horrible example of what happens when police aren't made to obey the law themselves.

    Odd comparison, but this is how I feel about Michael Vick. Yeah, both guys deserve a second chance. AT LIFE, not at their job. The second chances should come after the prison time is up.

    To play devil's advocate here, I'm not so sure I would want to see this cop fired. Sure, a cop really should not beat on someone that is not a danger to others, but on the other hand, I bet that guy in the wheelchair was being a MAJOR prick and probably deserved what he got. Same for the other scumbag shoplifters that got slapped around. Frankly, I think teachers should be able to spank or otherwise reasonably physically punish kids in school and I don't mind if a cop gets a little rough with scumbags...there ain't NOBODY above an ass kicking. I just wish the cops were smart enough not to get caught but don't ask me to feel bad for the perps. Bottom line, I don't condone what the cops did, but I certainly understand it.

    words should never be returned with fists. never.

    beating on someone who is restrained is unacceptable in any circumstance I can imagine.

    If I slap somebody on a car lot for which I am selling cars, they would fire me. Why is this different? The officer should have been arrested for assault and battery. What a coward. The drunk stabbing victim might have been a hard core loser, but he was shackled down. An officer who is going to beat somebody handcuffed to a wheel chair is somebody we want on the force?

    I can't tell if you're kidding or not.

    ...

    "The soundless video shows Randle Miles, now 62, sitting in a wheelchair ...
    Miles was in the hospital for a stab wound to the shoulder.

    A 42-second snippet of video shows Cozzi, who was on duty, shackling Miles' legs to the wheelchair, then striking Miles about 10 times -- finishing with a roundhouse blow.

    Cook County prosecutors have said Cozzi struck Miles with a "blackjack" -- a small baton."

    ...

    You'd better be kidding.
