These situations are always tough. I mean, for example, we have no idea if the guy was kicking the cop and that is what caused the cop to punch the guy (just an example of what could have happened). Or maybe the guy was spitting at him. Or.... Then again, it could be that the cop was completely out of line too. A lot of times, it's hard to tell exactly what was happening based solely out footage that doesn't give a clear view of what was really happening.
Although, generally speaking, I would have to give the benefit of the doubt to the cop when you can't tell what happened for sure. Will that allow some "abuses" to slip though? Yep. But if you don't put yourself in that situation to begin with, you don't have to worry about it... Personally, I don't know how some of these cops restrain themselves as much as they do with the crap they are put through on a daily basis.
