    Does anyone else think that old woman should be at home behaving like a lady rather than participating in drama. Mid life crisis a little late! She is disgusting. Looks kinda like an evil serpent! Pathetic!

    excuse me: Educate yourself-Puerto Ricans are US American citizens at birth, DUH? You know waht you can do with that "deport" fecal garbage, OK? --------------------------------------------------------No Ignorance: Puerto Rico is an USA commonwealth, OK? NOT a territory, period. Puerto Ricans elect their own governor. Guam and the US Virgin Islands, etc. their governors are appointed by the US President. ----------------------------------------------------- WCTI12 showed the incident video. J PD has zipped their mouths AKA No comment b/c of the incident sensitivity, DUH? ----------------------------------------------------- Are we back to the sixties racial tension? You people make the call. Thank you

    Cops probably thought they were responding to a call on Davis St. Oh, that's right, they were. What is missing from this supposed video?

    It's sad to read all these ignorant racist comments. For one all the VICTIMS that took part in defending their family were PUERTO RICAN (which is a UNITED STATES territory), which means they are U.S. citizens. So before you post your ignorant comments use some what of the education this Country provides for you and prevent your self from looking stupid. The people who post ignorant comments are the problem and cancer to OUR beautiful country. And I am sorry that you are able to use a computer but do not have enough common sence to get anywhere in life. And I am sure that the victims of this police brutality will over come this tragedy they under went on Christmas Eve and will have a blessed New Years.

    This article doesn't give as much details at the interview that was shown on abc news. I highly recommend you look at the video before making your not only ignorant, but racist comments.

    This is so unfortunate. It really is. Judging from the video I saw on the news It seems as if there was in fact police bruatlity. Isnt the first time I hear something like that about the jpd. I wish these 4 the best.

      Missed meds huh? The police were very professional. The fool on the ground refused to follow commands and the mobs started to rush. I would have enjoyed seeing a few twitching from taser loads. Trouble today, no one wants to recognize authority. Just wanna run rampant. If you believe a video that can be stopped and paused at will of filmer; You probably place bets based on the "latest polls". Sorry to be you.

    Thr majority of these comments sound ridiculousy racist. What makes you peoe think they are even.illegal. Race has absolutly nothing to.do with the situation..stop being so prejudice and realize that this could have happened to anyone.
