She PUSHED a police officer as he was doing his job. She should be charged with assault and disruption of justice. What she did just now could have killed an officer if the situation was different. What if a police officer was arresting an armed individual, a friend pushed him off, and the individual grabbed a weapon? They are doing just as they were trained.
Fuck you Joe.
Yea F*ck You Joe XD
I got your back joe. Allow me:
HEY I remember this case. She wasn’t jaywalking her friend next to her (in the black shirt) was being arrested because people had complained about her behavior (She got in a fight or something or was harassing people nearby?) and this other women (in the pink) wigs out and shouts at the officer. Then she hits him and scratches him several times telling him he “cant take her friend” and that the other party was wrong. He told her to back off about 4 times, other officers tried to remove her from the fiasco (NON violently) then finally he took her down for obstruction of justice. She also got physical with the door in the cell and tried to beat her way out of the cell door window. ROFL morons.
it’s still excessive. where’s back up? Why didn’t he call for any? There’s more he could have done to avoid a physical altercation.
She deserved what she got. It’s called assault on a police officer.
There is a difference between assault and self defense, cops shoot unarmed citizens many times and they don’t stand trial for it and people around here know that.
People as well as cops also have the right to self defense but in this fascist America the media does not like pointing out peoples right to self defense any more only cops rights to self defense.
Jay Walking is hardly worth a right hook. misuse of power. lets not make this a racial issue because all the officer will get is a paid leave. injustice.
With JM and Joe on this one, she wouldn’t back off the Officer.
Action reqiuers knowledge, and now I can act!
ya she deserved it… 100%
This large, strong, and supposedly highly skilled and trained officer should have been able to defuse the situation and restrain the (unarmed) woman without resorting to punching her in her face. If this is really the level of response that the Seattle PD considers acceptable, we could dispense with the training altogether, and just hire high school bullies to slug anyone found jaywalking. That would be cheaper and more efficient.
You clearly are an idiot that didn’t watch the same video everyone else did, THE “GIRL” ATTACKED HIM, he didn’t have anyone else around and had to do what he had to do… Stop with the LCD, it’s frying what little brain matter you have left.
He didnt hit her because she jaywalked. He hit her to stop her from coming at him.
If you hit a cop you get what you get. She was acting aggresively. Sometimes officers cuff people to defuse a situation and to talk to the person. Just becuase you are cuffed and put into a police car dosnt mean your being arrested. But she did deserve to be arrested.
She was acting a fool! Should have used the taser!
She deserved that hands down!!!
When you hit someone, namely a law enforcement or emergency services person, your status as a female goes out the window. You wanna act like trash, you can get treated like it.
it dosnt matter if she touched him, she is so little and he gave a full force punch…That is not right
That is so pathetic. He seriously can’t handle two women? PATHETIC PATHETIC PATHETIC. And the cop in the end throwing the girl in the cell should be shot.
You should be shot, if they were law abiding citizens nothing would have happened.
When is it ever alright to put your hands on an officer of the law?
Get AIDS and die ghetto trash
All you phughing liberals bitching about him assaulting her? Are you retarded? WATCH THE VIDEO!!!
He was not talking to her while she was grabbing him, scratching him, basically ASSAULTING HIM. He did what he had to do to get her off him and protect himself. Kudos officer, I would have done the same!
Okay, I understand that the girl in the pink took the cops hands off of her friend and that people are upset about that. However, the cop punched her in the fucking face. You don’t hit girls in the face. Period. Cops are trained to restrain people who are violent. Punching them in the face is not one of the tactics they are taught. No matter how you look at it, he still punched a girl in the face and that’s wrong.
“He didnt hit her because she jaywalked. He hit her to stop her from coming at him.”
So the best way to restrain a woman from “coming at you” is to punch them in the face. Gotcha.
“You should be shot, if they were law abiding citizens nothing would have happened.
When is it ever alright to put your hands on an officer of the law?
Get AIDS and die ghetto trash”
How can you say things like that to someone? You disagree with this person so you think they should get shot, contract aids, and then die? Then you call them ghetto trash? That’s one of the most ignorant things I’ve ever heard. I’m guessing right now your thinking of a response, probably something like “SHUT UP LIBERAL.” I hate that.
“If you hit a cop you get what you get.”
First off, what does hitting a cop have to do with this? No one hit a cop here.
Second, a cop is a human being just like the rest of us. Not above, not below. They got themselves a job enforcing a set of laws, other people choose different careers.
“What she did just now could have killed an officer if the situation was different.”
The situation is not different though. I understand what you are trying to say but it isn’t different.
“What if a police officer was arresting an armed individual, a friend pushed him off, and the individual grabbed a weapon?”
That would be a dangerous situation but there is a proper way to handle that. Punching someone in the face is not part of that protocol. You could simply handcuff the person. They have all sorts of restraining techniques they are taught to get people under control.
Too damn many sick bastards defend the police and I am sick of it, the f@@king cops don’t arrest another cop when people charge them with a crime!
That is enough to know they are corrupt and just don’t give a damn about people’s complaints!
Cops bro’s jump onto sites such as this and cyber gang stalk anyone that gets upset about a cop caught on video assaulting and battering people!
How dare we as citizens and tax payers be upset over organized criminals in uniforms committing assault and battery on people, how f@@king dare we!
All you cop bro’s that protect cops from complaints by can shove it!
Cops can deny a allegation the same way everyone else does, in a court room!
Catching criminal cops on video does not get them arrested! so what the f@@k does get a cop arrested then?
The girl the cop punched later apologized. I am 100% against police violence but this video doesn’t show the entire situation. Don’t have links on my phone but this is a case of bad budget cuts affecting a small police force. I am not a cop and haters gonna hate but I urge you in this case to research a little more.
Sean is right, I remember this case very well.(I live in Seattle)I am a biased person against the cops…hate em. But this care the girl that got punched actually put herself between the cop and the girl he was dealing with. She was also interviewed by the news channel…she even admitted she had done the wrong thing and the cop was right to hit her. This is a case of the one percent doing the right thing.
I had an Atlanta cop get in my face for jaywalking in an area that didn’t even have crosswalks.
