Had his hands in his pockets during an arrest and they tased him anyway. This is already becoming a top story. Not good.

This is another police chief throwing his guys under the bus for political reasons. Sad and dangerous. Kids are watching and learning that noncompliance is an acceptable way of handling a police encounter. There will be more situations needlessly escalated until we start holding non-compliant people accountable instead of shifting the blame to the person dealing with an unknown and potentially dangerous/lethal situation.

Respectfully, the sheer ignorance displayed in this statement is really disappointing. Show me a police stop where the cop allows a suspect to keep their hands in their pocket, Iíll show you a cop not doing the job correctly and needlessly putting his or her life on the line.

Agree 100%. Our Officers are dealing with all sorts of dangerous situations and these idiots either flee outright or just act insulted and get their 'tude up, "Man, ain't no Po Po tellin' me what to do." Let me clue you in Sterling - Police get to tell people what to do. Most people without a huge chip on their shoulder comply and avoid further problems. I sure as hell do whatever the officer says and I am polite. Just common sense - unless you just have to show your militant attitude to the world, "Nobody gonna dis' me."

Police Chief ought to be fired for not backing up his officers. Next story will be about an Officer not being assertive enough and ending up being murdered because he feared being accused of racism. Makes me boiling mad.

Hey hpantazo, you don't hide your hands in front of a police officer. The guy could easily have a gun - then the Officer gets shot for simply doing his job.

Yeah, hands in pockets is an absolute no-go. Any 6'6" 230lb guy with his hands in his pockets would be pretty worrisome for most officers

TP. This is happening all the time. Officers getting injured, killed or avoiding the job altogether and whistling passed situations because of the potential backlash. People are suffering as a result.

The cops are supposed to be peace makers not trouble makers.

Making everything into a confrontation is bad and dangerous policing for everyone.

The officer handled this badly. Should've been a simple ticket for parking wrong in the middle of the night.

"The department conducted an investigation into the incident which revealed members acted inappropriately and those members were recently disciplined," Morales said, without taking questions. "I am sorry this incident escalated to this level."

I'm sure it would have been a simple warning, not even a ticket, had Brown just cooperated.

I shrug my shoulders because its nothing new as far as how most cops handle minorities. They turn a ticket into an arrest and blame the guy for a poor attitude being justification for an arrest. If you aren't white your in for a fight. Only way to win is to lose as quickly as possible by saying yes sir, and no sir and thank you sir and sorry sir, and I will try to not let it happen again sir... ect. Even if you are right, the officer is like your wife you let her win or she will give you hell.

I mean, you only need to watch like a minute of that video to see that the officer immediately starts in with a hostile attitude.  That is unacceptable.  There's no reason to conduct yourself in that manner as an officer of the law, you should be held to a higher standard.  You can be firm without being hostile. The officer deserves to be reprimanded and disciplined. Period.

Now that said, Brown does appear to give off an attitude himself.  When the officer asks him to back up, he does not.  Responding with attitude to an officer who is conducting himself unprofessionally is at the very least contributing to the escalation of the incident.  Disregarding orders is also illegal. Is this some sort of machismo competition?

Hands in pockets cannot happen. Show your hands and if you refuse you are asking for escalation.

I donít care your size, race, demeanor, etc., you need to show your hands for the safety of EVERYONE.

Come on. They had been talking for minutes already. Did the cop even ask him to take his hands out of his pockets? I honesty couldn't hear. But you can't use the surprise excuse. There was no reason to think he had a weapon of any kind. It was a d@mn parking issue.

They should've just game him the ticket. I got a ticket the other day for missing a stop sign and I didn't get out of my car or have any of this BS. This was all over a parking ticket. The Police are suppose to be the professionals in these circumstances. They are suppose to control the situation not get into a p---ing contest with the public over a parking ticket.
