Chicago Officer Investigated After Video Shows Him Body-Slamming Man | NBC Nightly News


  1. That should have been a leg sweep and fall on top not chance putting the man in a wheelchair for or even dead slammed on a curb could have killed him

  2. To those that comment the police in Chicago are like this the majority of the time. I can only imagine being in Law Enforcement in larger cities such as Chicago is the equivalent to being in an ongoing battle. Criminals of all types waiting to shoot someone, anyone, all for the purpose of "making a name" for themselves. Are the police on HIGH ALERT?! You bet!! And well they should be. So let's see, only ONE specific cited instance of four Chicago Police officers making a poor decision. I wonder how many HUNDREDS of instances this same day people were arrested, THAT WERE CRIMINALS DOING SOMETHING WRONG, that went to jail with little to no issue. This is what the media wants, spoon feeding us nothing but the minority of instances when things go wrong, let's see the other hundreds of times DAILY when things go right!! But they won't do that, GOOD doesn't sell.

    The man SPIT in the Officer's face!! Every action has a reaction, I would imagine this person will long remember the repercussions of his actions and not spit in an officer's face again. Now let's hope the Mayor isn't a coward and supports the men and women doing the job she will not.

  3. There's always a critical peace of information left out. Sad to see the officer didn't notice the curb , otherwise the guy would be fine aside from some cracked ribs. Bad situation.

  4. The media will bring our civilized country to it's heels if allowed!!! Their all about the $$$ratings and reporting on ANYTHING that might fuel their pathetic status amongst perpetuating violence…even at the expense of laws!!!

  5. In 2018, 399 white people were killed by police while 209 black people were killed by police. We lose more white people to police shootings every year. (for everyone who's crying racism)

  6. Omg the frail looking citizen hit his head like a rag doll.
    Was that the only thing the officer could do? Just cuff him.

  7. These ferals should have been disciplined when children. Now it's up to society. I support our uniformed personnel….

  8. Honeslty if that bum lick and spit on his face he should get slammed on his head and turn into a veggie anyone who says who cares what lead up to it he shouldn't have done that os just plan dumb

  9. I would say %70 of the police force is just disgusting. I'm just sad that police brutality became a Youtube genre and people are immune to it and not reacting aggressively anymore.

  10. What's wrong w that. Gota take someone down and he did. Dont spit on a cop or anyone. Who knows what kind of disease that dude had. Everyone questions cops but what about criminals. You wonder why chicago crime rates so high.

  11. They always always always edit out the context. So many L.E.O. haters in here, would you really want to live in a world without cops? Delusional.

  12. Excessive use of force, applied recklessly out of anger, due to mere insult and disgust. Why "mere"? Because insult and disgust are not life threatening. Slamming a person's skull forcefully against the edge of a curb is life threatening.

  13. I never know whether to give a thumbs up for good reporting, on such stories, or a thumbs down against the perpetrator/cop in the story.

  14. 21 year old punk, drinking beer in public resisting arrest threatening and spitting on the police !! WELL DONE OFFICER!!! Well done!!!!

  15. Perp got what was coming to him. Play stupid games. Win stupid prizes.

    Get that police officer the heavyweight title belt for that WWE body slam

  16. Threaten, lick, and spit in anyone's face you can expect to be thrown on the ground, what would you think will happen in you do that? Good way to catch a beating

  17. Do y'all ever wonder why when deadly actions like this from the police happens to be shown to us that the news never take to the streets and question the bystanders on what they witness on evening. It's like the news only feed us what they want us to know.

  18. It's all about EDUCATION, not RACISM. I guess it's the way your parent's raised us. The Officer was within all his right to be angry, I would've done the same thing.

  19. It's more of a health risk to be spitted on and die of germs than to be slammed on the concrete. I would've been terrified if a bum like that would had spitted and licked my face look at him a dirty germ infested unhealthy bum.

  20. From what little I do see, there is nothing that man could have done that would have justified that cop's actions. The proper response would have been to bend him down over the car and handcuff him, then maybe put a spit guard over his head. The man is not holding a weapon, he is not physically attacking the officer, he doesn't appear to be offering any resistance whatsoever. So tell me, what would justify body slamming him and bashing his head against the curb? The police, who are as usual investigating themselves, will determine as they always do that the officer did nothing wrong.

  21. Someone get him a lawyer! This mf police pos need to pay ! Police are the biggest criminal organization known to man

  22. His head hit the side walk like a melon. Ok. Ok. Maybe at one point these cops wanted to make the world a better safer place. But at some point they loose that and get this anger. This is why cops should have mandatory psychological exams every 3 months. They see a lot. So I do believe there are some good cops who go bad due to environment. Cause that was anger pure anger. Pinned up anger.

  23. He slammed the man with no helmet on his head into the curb. It happened here in Ada Oklahoma as well,… the son of a auto repair man named Donny, our automotive mechanic had his son permanently brain damaged over stealing tube Sox and tooth paste at wal-mart. Not sure if his son was addicted or challenged. But super gross. They never take people beating women the elderly or children this way, but they should start.

  24. Impossible that the guy licked an officer's face and spit in his eye. Officers start to attack the minute you move towards them. Chicago police have no restraint….it would have never got that far. Nice try tho. I tell people I can fly all the time to see if they are stupid enough to believe it


  26. This doesn’t show the entire situation of course. I don’t disagree what that officer did . The guy was drinking in public and made threats and licked and spit on an officer this all sounds like assult on the officer. That officer is right in my book . Stay strong officer!!

  27. So where is the officers body camera!!!! The business across from the bus stop should also have video. Being former law enforcement I very rarely believe the police department. They have been known to cover up incidents for white officers. Just strange no body camera footage backing up the department's statement.

  28. This is definitely against policy because in the police academy you are giving these exact situations and how to properly respond. This is an extreme use of force. This should be a fireable offense. As law enforcement we must remain professional at all times. Even when the offender may not be courteous.

  29. Look if I spit on you in the eyes what’s going to happen to me.results may vary I’m just saying I’d never spit on any human being and if I were to do soo I bet I better be ready for a scrape or I cane across a non violent christian is it wrong of course two people were hurt probably over something dumb

  30. Cops and republicans are the same. They’re supposed to be on the side of the people but, all they do is lie,harass and hurt the American people. Let us see the entire video. Maybe a phone call was made. Body slamming someone unconscious could
    Bring litigation against the city. Smh

  31. Don't believe your lying eyes! This man's back was to the officer… cuffing him was all he had to do. "Emergency Takedown"? Yeah right! In wrestling that move is called a "Suplex" or "Suflex". .. it's purpose is to slam the opponents back & head to the floor. It's hard to spit on an officer who's behind you… if the alleged spitting took place earlier, this proves the Suplex was unnecessary at the time it took place.

  32. Here we go again. A bully cop stops a black man for minor infractions and treated brutally. I dont care if he spit at the cop, he was drunk, and the cop shouldve restrained his presious ego and just cuffed him. I cant wait to see the body cam video and the false police reports those thugs dreamt up. Disgraceful!

  33. The man who got body slammed is being charged with a felony. I hope twitter finds the police officers name and photo fast because thats the only justice we are going to get.

  34. Yeah, its ugly. But what's more ugly is the cop getting Aids or something else from the perp. The guy was 29?? I saw his mug shot. He looks 55.

  35. He needs to be fired he could have deescalate the situation he could have told the young man too poor out the beer that was a minor situation CPD acted like it was a major situation no police officer should not treat no one like that that was unwarranted

  36. Videos don't lie that man could have died after that horrific horrifying incident he have brain damage before the officer did what he did now he actually have more brain damage now it was unwarranted

  37. the people who defend cops who should be held to a higher standard are no better than those who posed in photos of hangings ….. lets not forget those people said the same arguments for their crimes

  38. Ok but if he spit in face or whatever why would you body slam him he could’ve died luckily he just got a concussion and is nobody talking about the dude who took his phone after the boy was body slammed the dude waiting at the bus stop took his phone

  39. Cops WILL shoot you For Less. I guess the story is still the same. The public is just drunks and drug addicts and the state is the All Mighty. New Day, Same Story. NEXT!
