    That is what they always do…chance the weak, you will never see them treat a politician or politician son this way. I have witnessed a lot of instances where they chance people. I understand it is not easy to be a Police but if you choose that career it was not to relief your frustration on the weak.

    In a way. I see no wrong in what the police did. If you resist arrest in any country. The police will respond with force. Its true that some one in the back ground encourage the dog to advance at the police and the police had to defend themselves from being bitten. Although the dog probly acted to defend its owner. Its natural but a police have the right to defend themselves also. I will say it again. From what I have seen in the video. Any police from any country would do the same.
