Re: overzealous cop?
It's funny how if a cop talks a little shit he's on roids but if some scumbag kid talks shit, it's ok. Overzealous? Yeah a little but not a big enough deal to make an issue. IMO the knee appears to be on the back of the neck which is one method they are trained to use to subdue a subject laying prone. He didn't just run in and knee the kid in the head for the fun of it.
The first cop probably radioed for back-up that he was fighting with a subject. And because both of his hands were being used to subdue the subject, he couldn't radio again to say he had the subject was in custody, because he wasn't yet. Second cop is driving there thinking he is still in an active fight and responds accordingly. If I was a cop, I would want a guy like the second guy coming to back me up. He did a little shit talking, get over it. He did absolutely nothing wrong.
