The one on the ground is the criminal. Yes, but more importantly is how do we get criminals to stop victimizing innocent people? These people dont care about going to prison but if the thought they were going to get their asses kicked they would certainly think twice. I really dont care that he was hit a few times in order to get him to comply. Similarly, if I commit a crime and get a few puches before the cuff's are on...well it goes with the territory. People are getting tired of being preyed upon, and when it comes to losing our rights just thank the ACLU.
