I've only watched the footage once and don't know who is who yet so I don't know where I stand on this.

Seems like he was resisting the entire time and not following instructions.

OTOH it seems like cops had plenty of opportunities to cuff this guy and put him in a cruiser but didn't.

IMO the cops were justified in their early encounter with Nichols but it's in the 2nd encounter where shit gets weird.

I guess you could argue the guy is soccer-kicking him so that he'll lie down and they can get cuffs on him, but weren't they already on at that point?
