How about someone make a movie out of your life and only put on the parts when you snapped and mess up? That's what we see with the cops. What if he had saved hundreds of people's lives before? Would that change anything?
This is a bit of a reach, dude. Under most circumstances, your average person would not snap and beat the shit out of a belligerent drunk woman in handcuffs, much less someone who has supposedly been trained to deal with these types of people.
For the record, it was the Police Chief who filed a grievance after seeing the video and eventually fired the guy. I think that shows that his behavior was unacceptable no matter which side of the blue line you sit.
