New footage.

Just disgusting. All of those police officers should have been fired.

Just give the guy a ticket for parking across a few spots (which is stupid really - no one else is there and I'm sure they have better things to do) and be on your way. 2 squad cars coming in blazing with their lights/sirens, etc? Are you kidding me?

It was gut wrenching seeing them put my man on the ground like that and tase him. Such BS. And of course the PC crowd will say, 'listen to cops, do what they say, etc etc' but we can't say 'it's a free country' with this kind of BS. Sterling was simply coming out of the store and going to his car door and the cop got all high and mighty. It was late, I'm sure he was tired, etc. This just all sickens me. The cops get whatever disciplinary action they deserve (which probably isn't enough). A bunch of power hungry morons.



I'm beginning my seventh decade on this earth and I've seen a lot of law enforcement , some of it up close and
personal. I have seen and dealt with all kinds of officers , from exemplary to pathetically dangerous. Way too many
fall on the negative side of the scale. I have observed racist cops first hand on three different occasions in my lifetime.
First, as a teenager in the 60's ; then midlife in the 90's; and finally blatant harassment of a black lady who worked
for me in 2008. Anyone who thinks rampant police racism is not still a problem has their head up their a _ _ !

Sadly , the idiot we have in the White House continues to make matters worse.

This link was included in the Yahoo article, but props to Sterling on his interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America...

It appears obvious to me that someone in the store called the cops based on some issue in the store and/or suspecting that he was going to rob the store based on the "get away" positioning of his car parked at the front door across the 3 parking spaces and heading out. Why did Sterling not follow their initial commands thereby creating/escalating the situation???? This situation does not happen if he follows instructions and alleviates their concerns.

No assumptions made here. And way to give the benefit of the doubt to our own, someone who’s father is a cop, and someone who has never been in trouble ever. Great that you know what is like to be in Sterling’s position in that situation.[/quoteF

I spent over 30 years a a federal law enforcement officer and worked the streets in LA, SF, Portland and NYC. I think I have a very good idea of situations and the reasons things happen. I repeat, cops do not waste their time (and may not even have jurisdiction in many communities) enforcing handicapped parking on private property @ 2 AM without something else happening such as a phone call of concern which also involved backup units responding.

If the call was for a major concern, why did they initially send only the one guy and not roll up with all 6? Did they figure the guy was ex Army Ranger and could handle himself against a bad scenario?

#TrueFacts: The responding officer was over-aggressive(confirmed by internal review), he lied about Sterling's behavior to the others that arrived making them be on edge, the 2nd set of videos showing p1ss poor atitude and standing on his ankle for no reason after he'd been dropped/tazed/cuffed and was never a threat, Mr. Money Money Money celebrating his OT pay for dropping one of our own for no reason, and Mr. "Oh Boo Hoo he's gonna make a complaint and everyone's gonna call us racist bleh bleh bleh" guy nailing it on the head with no sense of irony.

Here's your chance to gather some facts. Use your Liam Neeson elite set of skills and put an FOIA request on all police calls that day and see if the store made one to report anyone that day much less after midnight. I'll wait.

And he should. It's really hard for cops to be cool to anybody they need to work on that.

He cleans up nice.

I saw an article (looking for link) that said no matter how successful a player he becomes, he has a chance to make a much bigger social and cultural impact. It said an entire generation, even those who don't follow sports, could end up knowing his name for years.
