Default Unarmed thug beats cop into critical condition with "life changing" injuries

Deputies were able to separate the pair and took them outside the mall. At some point, however, witnesses reported that the man began to violently beat the deputy who escorted him out after the official dropped a set of keys and bent over to pick them up.

The man hit the deputy in the head and then repeatedly kicked him as he was down on the ground, witnesses said.

.......

He was in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery, and was expected to survive.

“While the injuries that he has right now aren’t life-threatening, they’re going to be life-changing. They’re very significant injuries,” Swensson said.

But the guy was "unarmed", so how big of a threat could he have posed to the cop? Good thing he didn't pull his gun, he could have killed this nice gentleman and faced the wrath of angry protestors.

Damn. I used to rarely side with the police but as I've gotten older and matured quite a bit, I've come to appreciate their jobs more. They never know when danger will strike. It's very unfortunate that this happened to the cop. I hope he didn't suffer any brain damage.

In the end they are no different than anyone else... they just want to go to work do their job and go home. The difference is they chose a career where there's a very real possibility that might not happen if they let their guard down even for a second

Honestly, I don't know how they do it... I couldn't

Why people assume unarmed means zero threat I will never understand.

Over the years I've become a much more paranoid person in public. I wouldn't say it's anxiety but I watch my back a lot. I don't like having my back to people in a restaurant or even at the movies. Whether you like or not you're taking a chance that the person behind you isn't crazy. It's a scary world we live in right now.

Time to seek some mental help. You live in Portland, which has the lowest crime rate of any metro area in the US(or did). If you lived in Chicago or DC, your head would probably explode. My cousins live there, they say it's chill as hell(no pun int).

If you're going to use this to argue in favor of the cops in Ferguson.. this is a bad example. The cop would've taken further precautions and shot the "thug" if he was black.

Unarmed Caucasian beat the cop for the record.

That's also true. On the Ferguson matter.. I'm really on the fence. I can see Mike Brown doing exactly what (by in large racist) opposers say and vice versa. I'll wait for hard evidence before I voice my opinion on the matter.

One thing I do know for sure is the police have became far more militarized and seem to be above the law. Also, there's a lot of dumb ignorant idiotic punks on the other end (some from out of state) making the large majority of peaceful protestors look bad.

Just a bunch of ****ery on both extreme sides.. but I expect more from the former since they are armed and funded by the local/state/government.

This is the complete opposite of Fergusson (or at least the Michael Brown apostle POV).

You are absolutely right. The cop failed to defend himself with deadly force against an unarmed assailant and the result is a violent criminal is alive and well, while the cop may be "retarded" for the rest of his life. Correct again.
