I would much rather the cops "get away" with beating a criminal, than that criminal injuring or killing the cops or innocent people nearby. You may want to read "Garner vs. Tennessee.

There are a few cops who are bad apples. There isn't any profession out there doesn't have bad apples giving everyone else a bad name. It is also very rare that it doesn't eventually catch up to them. Yes, a few may get away with it but most do get caught for using excessive force. However, if a person is doing something criminal or is putting themselves in a situation that makes it seem like they are doing something wrong (such as resisting arrest), then they have themselves to blame.

If a police officer says put your hands behind you hands behind your back and attempts to handcuff you and you try to fight them off.... what would you have the officer do?

I don't think that while they are trying to subdue someone with one hand and reach for the pepper spray with the other then to have a clear shot of only that persons face and not their own as well not likely. Even in cases were there are more then 2 officers is everybody supposed to let them go to get a clear shot?
Why isn't the question more of what does the person do to get hit by the police in the first place? I have never been handcuffed but would I listen or try to fight them off.... I would go with listen myself.
Its not to say are not bad cops but I think there are way more good then bad.
