Just sickening. I'd love to see this guy sue, get MILLIONS, and the offending cops go to jail.


Lojak says he was just trying to talk to his friend.
Sources confirm a Pittsburgh Police officer then “tackled Lojak to the ground” and that’s when he sustained the facial injuries.
“I was drinking with my friends,” Lojak said.
When asked if he was drunk, Lojak said, “I was probably intoxicated, I don’t know how much.”

Regarding the cell phone video and the body blows, police sources describe them as a compliance technique used by police officers attempting to handcuff suspects.
Lojak says he wasn’t combative, loud or resisting arrest.

I watched the video. It was plain as day that the one cop hit the guy twice after he was completely subdued.
That officer should be charged with assault and battery IMHO. He should be investigated and fired.
There should be no place for that kind of behavior in police departments.
That guy makes other cops look bad. Evidence on the video strongly supports firing that officer and charging that officer with a crime.

By the way, 4 large officers vs. one puny unarmed man.
How damn hard could it be to properly subdue the guy ?
Back when I worked as a bar bouncer I'd been fired for asking for help in such a case and laughed right out of the place!
Police have a hard job and its made even harder by actions like that officer engaged in. I know of at least one verified case of a 20 year old guy getting hit in the back of the head by a cop using a nightstick simply because he was too drunk to get into the squad car as fast as the officer ordered. No fighting back, the guy was too slow because he was too drunk. That guy was my younger brother and several witnesses saw the entire thing.
I've spent well over 30 years trying to catch that officer at the right time, right place to deliver a bit of justice but the bastard has now passed on. SOB died back in 2006.--Tyr

With the evidence shown I have to agree the cop hitting the guy should be prosecuted but as in so many other cases I will wait until all evidence comes forward to form a complete opinion, it seemed strange that this took place at 1 am but yet the video looks like it was the middle of the afternoon , yes I know you can lighten the picture up but my videos ( from a decent phone ) at night never look that good , with that said the cop hitting him once he was already in cuffs needs to be prosecuted
