Black Friday 2011 police brutality buckeye arizona

During last Black Friday Sale a grandpa put two(2) video games under his shirt in his waste band because his grandson got knocked down and hurt in the rush and he needed both of his hands to help his grandson.

A cop saw and immediately arrested him for shoplifting.

The man was cooperating while the cop was putting on the handcuffs.

Then another cop out of no where tripped the man and bashed his head nose first into the ground knocking him out and there is blood everywhere.

The cop did not know how to care for the man so someone that was there shopping had to help get blood out the mans airways.

This was disgusting! Cops should not be violent especially if the one being arrested was cooperative.

That's a blatant use of force! There is no need for him to act that way!
