Talk about overkill by the cop in question. He broke the poor old mans neck for God's sake.
This has become an epidemic of many cops abusing their power. We see often how the cowards hiding behind a badge get off on going after those that are the most vulnerable among us. What a nightmare these animals must be to live with, I can only imagine.
This cop needs to be stripped of his badge and off the streets, period. He's a danger to every citizen that dares to question his so-called authority or happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. He's a bully with a badge and we all know that is not a good mix.
