No officers have been fired and the acting chief had the following to say:
The public if they get stopped and simply comply with what they are asked to do, they have nothing to fear, nothing to fear at all.
Translation. Follow orders blindly or suffer violence without cause. Think about that, do exactly as the officer says or they can kill you. Think about what that implies and remember if you fight back you’ll be charged with assault.
When they do it, it’s merely law enforcement, even when force isn’t necessary.

Because when you’re a cop and you’re bored and someone doesn’t do exactly what you want, beat them to within an inch of their life.
