    What EXACTLY is your solution because REGARDLESS of political party, politician you vote for, You get the same zero accountability police dept in USA .

    Not a SINGLE USA local city DA could care less about you and your police dept knows it.

    Neither one of you gentlemen is being realistic as far as your solution . USA's police dept has become the abusive and corrupt organization that it is because neither DA's, judges nor politicians could care less.

    I did a little research into this story. It appears that Mrs. Breshears was calling for help when the officers drove up and he was holding her arm. While I'm sure they will argue that it looks like he was injuring her, I definitely think they over-reacted. One of the articles said the Police Chief declined to be interviewed on or off camera (surprise?). I suspect they're going to end up giving the Breshears a much nicer retirement before this is over...

    I certainly hope so. And the officers involved should go to jail. The massive uptick in violence by government towards citizens is clear. From shooting and killing people for "illegally camping", to beating a man for taking care of his wife, to stealing a Nevada ranchers cattle and threatening his family and livelihood....it's all part of the same attitude government has towards the people who pay their salaries.

    Government works for us, not us for the government. Any government workers who think different deserve to be fired, and if government worker's actions result in harm to a citizen, that government worker should go to jail.

    @Medicinebow That would be because public officials have no incentive to protect the best interest of the tax payer. The more they screw up, the more they take from the tax payer.

    That's my take and I hope so. This is inexcusable to me!
    Even if these idiot officers perceived the husband was detaining the wife what would set an officer off enough to physically attack an elderly gentleman as such. I didn't catch the city/ state but there is no excuse.

    Agreed. Those cops say those cameras are there for our protection but how much protection can they offer when cops can freely turn them off and erase them....

    Actually, you're right. Precincts that adopt an always-on style of recording have seen huge decreases both in police abuse incidents and citizen complaints about police conduct.

    The sword cuts both ways because the cameras help protect the citizens from officers (sadly enough) and protect the officers from inaccurate reports from citizens.

    Who were the police protecting or serving? They assaulted a senior citizen.... who were they protecting or serving? Do the police have any shame?

    Ahhh but I said what I said because I have read several of your posts castigating Dems when police brutality occurred in their cities, states yet you look the other way like a Tea Party hypocrite when it happens in "good ole" Republican cities and states .

    In truth bad police happen because local District Attorneys could not care less and REFUSE to go after them.

    More BS Bullies with a badge, I for one am damn sick of these coward cops. I used to say that there are still some that are good but that's BS. It's BS because if there is a cop that wouldn't treat or act this way to people he is just as bad as the ones that do because he don't speak out on it, he will help cover the crap up. So none of them are worth any count and this is coming from someone that has been a victim of a bully with a badge.

    "wife with dementia"
    With dementia, it could have been just about anything. Not exactly something this man should have been trying to deal with by himself.

    @Linebacker66
    Just watched the video. This is my outside assumption...wife was going thru an episode...husband was attempting to restrain. Cops roll up, see him in a physical confrontation. Then a massive overreaction thru excessive force happens. Discretion was completely thrown out the window.

    @stepped_in_it which is why he called 911. all he was trying to do it seems was keep her from wandering off until they got there.

    Humanville? That is about as inhuman as it gets.

    Very doubtful this man did anything that merited police using that much force. Clearly excessive. Then they try to justify it based on frivolous charges. Best lawyers from all over nation should offer to help him.

    Ever notice how their is no geographical tag or mention of where this injustice occurred except in the kpsr link. If it had occurred in the south, I think my friend@greg Zeman would have made more details available. This occurred in Modesto,ca.
    I agree with you WMCOL. I know you know a few good lawyers;)

    @WMCOL thanks for settin me straight there. If I had viewed that brief paste I would know better. I'm on my AT&T overage punishment of 3 gig slow down. I get about one week of blogging then I'm punished. But I punish them back with patience. I will still get about 10 gigs out of them on the old unlimited data plan. They punish me on anything live like videos. I see a revolution coming. Lol.

    The man says his wife was yelling "Help". I have first hand experience of the paranoia that can accompany dementia and Alzheimers. But the news story said this man has been involved with police since the "beginning of the year" without elaborating on that comment. It sounds like there is more to the story. But many police depts. seem to have adopted an "assume the worst and ask questions never" attitude that is leading to innocent people being harmed.

    It makes me sick to my stomach. You hear of this kind of story too often. We live our life surrounded by evil but we can't trust the people who are suppose to protect us from that evil.

    They shot and killed a 19 year old woman today whom they said had stolen a car. They also said she had a gun and had pointed it at them but that happened at 4:45a.m. this morning April 21, 2014, and so far, no video has been released of the incident, and no gun has been shown to the media. They are promising to provide more information TOMORROW. They've lied about guns before.

    @GedankPol @StinkyFish @Serk58 Update: Still no video. Only video is of woman running and from the car wash's own cctv system which doesn't make clear if she did or didn't have a weapon. Isn't it funny how the NYPD and the Mayor of NY, with a police force of 38,000+, a HUGE land area, and way over 8,000,000 residents can schedule a news conference and provide details and video to the city and the nation of what happened (like in the case of those 8 civilians who were accidentally shot in the crossfire between an armed suspect and NYPD) but Albuquerque, with less than 520,000 residents in the Metropolitan Area, and a department of less than 1,000 NEEDS DAYS, AND SOMETIMES WEEKS, to provide an explanation of what happened, images of what happened (when the officers didn't 'forget' to turn on their cameras), and/or images of any weapon the suspect is supposed to have had? I just don't understand that.

    @GedankPol I had an incident with a Knott County deputy like that a few years ago.After he ran his mouth about what he planned to do,I inform him that 1.He was under A-V surveillance and 2.It was being streamed to online storage where he could not get at it and 3.The phone call I got was going to a lawyer to sue his ass off in FEDERAL court.I went to jail for a few hours.He and the Sheriff's Dept got sued and Officer Smart Ass got fired.The sheriff lost his re-election bid after I publicized the incident.Don't F**K with a hacker.

    Things like this make me want to question ALL of law enforcement. The only reasoning I can see behind their assault is if perhaps a neighbor viewed the situation as the old man assaulting an apparently defenseless elderly woman. Even if this was the case they should've taken care in handcuffing Beshear and informed him of his rights. It's become appallingly clear that law enforcement is trying to make excuses in THEIR favor as motive to incarcerate citizens even if citizens did nothing at all to DESERVE incarceration.

    This sounds like excessive force by the police dept. but the story above only gives one side of the issue. What caused the police to arrive? What did they find? Did anyone else witness what happened? I find it hard to believe a police officer on active duty would need to assault a 78 yr old man.

    I read this as well as other news stories on the incident. The wife has Alzheimer's and relate dementia. It can get ugly. I know from experience. If you read the above, you see the husband himself is who called 911.

    The wife was disoriented and attempting to flee (she probably did not even recognize her husband). Husband was trying to keep her from running out in the middle of the street. Wife was hysterical. Police drove up and, apparently not looking at the entire dispatcher's report, misinterpreted the situation and decided to teach hubby a lesson.

    @viniketa Interesting. Just goes to show police should listen to instructions, not just react. Same thing happened to my grandfather/grandmother, but police didn't respond.

    @SAS86 Happened to my mother with my stepdad's Alzheimer's. Fortunately, she called the fire department rather than the police. They have EMT training and are less likely to overreact.
