Cop Punts Suspect’s Head; High Five Ensues

After a long high speed chase and short foot pursuit the suspect decides to lay on the ground and give up. This is when the cop gives the suspect a swift boot to the head. Watch the Video courtesy of NBC. The best reaction you’ll hear in the video is from the chopper pilot….

I know to most this would not be a big deal, a cop punting a deserving criminal in the head that is. No matter what the situation you just expect policemen to act this way. Either way, the policemen has yet to be named and the police chief is going to wait before he makes any decisions.

    LMFAO Maybe that was a move to stun the suspect until he could put the cuffs on.

    That wasn’t a kick, it was an enhanced foot tap…

    Understood it’s not a popular position, but the driver spent several minutes endangering civilians, wrecking property, and ridding himself of who-knows-what evidence / contraband, etc.

    A boot to the head after a high-speed, adrenaline-fed chase like that is unfortunate, but let’s please hold off on making this driver an outright victim and nothing else.

    About Me

    I was born and raised in Peterborough Ontario, from there I've moved to London, Banff, Victoria and finally Qualicum Beach - I am confident I have found the best place in Canada to settle. I don't consider myself a writer, I only play one on the Internet - I started blogging years ago for my now-defunct website ThrowawayyourTV.com - Since then I've blogged for AOL and worked as a manager/trainer at Mahalo.com assisting writers in learning the ropes of Internet Research and web-writing. Away from the computer I work as a pay-on-call Firefighter here in town.
