Three city police officers surrendered to federal authorities in Indianapolis on Friday, and have been charged for the use of alleged excessive force during Muncie Police Department arrests. The three officers include Chase Winkle, Jeremy Gibson and Joseph Krejsa. Among others, the indictment alleges Winkle used his knee to strike an arrestee’s head and neck area and used a taser.

I think the whole role of the police is messed up. Police should be there to serve all people of the country trying to make it as safe a place as possible. That includes even possible offenders. It is not a war "police against the bad guys". Many films and other media propagate this and it's kinda logical. Our good guys beat the bad guys is much catchier for a story, much easier, much more profitable than the complicated reality. But we really need to change how the public sees the role of the police, how the police sees the role of the police and how police is trained. The US still has a "Wild West, let's shoot the robber dead even if he just stole a carrot" attitude. That's not acceptable. At the same time: this is one incident, don't judge by the one incident, get statistics and compare them to other modern, democratic countries.

I’m gonna want the nuts and bolts of each individual charge before I come to an opinion. I’m specifically suspicious about kneeing a suspect in the back of the head during detainment. It’s too easy for some lawyer to armchair fighter this stuff, and I happen to know a detainment technique where the end move is to squat and place your knees over their head and back. You could easily hit someone in the head if you’re a little unbalanced, but it’s really effective and moves you right into a position to cuff them. Granted, I learned this in the marines and it was for use in a foreign country (Japan), but it’s still a legitimate technique. I’m not saying they’re innocent, but I do want to know what exactly happened (the who, what, when, where, and why at the least) before I make any judgements.

If they did it then they are a gang of thugs and need to be locked up.

America needs to answer this question: "Why does it have lawful policy compelling police officers to use violent lethal force to prevent non-violent crimes?"

Why you never blindly back any group or organization. There are always bad, good, and mediocre in every bunch.

Ignoring the merit of the charges being levied, on what grounds does the FBI have jurisdiction in this case?
