I am always one of the first to condemn officers who get out of line, but I can't really make a decison based on that video.

Video of woman in handcuffs pushed against car and then slammed on the ground.

His own police department charged him.
From the news story it appears that he has been brought up on departmental charges and not criminal charges.

That video looks bad. The person didn't appear to be bucking or fighting. Contrary to what some believe, a person in cuffs can still put up a pretty good fight, and people don't necessarily quit fighting once they are cuffed. The bad thing about such a video is that it doesn't give a true context of the events when just a snapshot like that is viewed. Mouthing off is not a valid reason to slam someone in cuffs, but it is possible there could be other circumstances that would lead an officer to legitimately ground someone in cuffs.
