Hey sometimes women just dont listen  >:D
Not sure a punch to face was the right thing but then again you should not put your hands on an officer.

Those with added responsibility need to excercise added restraint. That being said I think she had it coming. The girl in the black shirt was clearly struggling with the officer when the girl in the pink shirt jumped in. Now from the officer's point of view it's 2 against 1 and the adrenaline kicks in. It was an automatic response totally appropriate under the circumstances.

Is there a reason why our American police officers have to be so brutal, like we are in some third world country? 

I've been drunk in Europe once and done MUCH worse things than that, and the police just looked at me like they were bored and didn't say a word.

Used to be the guy with the bigger gun won the argument. Now it's the guy with the bigger video camera. The good news though is that it makes "shoot first and ask questions later" a viable option. I think this video clearly vindicates the officer.

What do you guys think about this? Was the officer right or was he wrong? Personally I believe he is in the right. But then again thats my opinion. What do you think?

She didn't get punched for jay walking, she got punched for physically interfering with the officer.  (Whether it was justified is a matter for debate.)

Walking up and grabbing a police officer while he's dealing with someone else is not a good thing to do.

Ride well,

You dont touch a cop period. SHes lucky she didnt get shot or tased. THe officer reacted accordingly, she almost knocked him over when she shoved him. What if the officer fell and hit his head and died? He got shoved, she got laid out. Now she and the NAACP are crying about it

Media spin for higher news ratings which brings more money. Maybe it could have been handled better, but it could have been worse (for the cop). Best to stop a situation in it's tracks.
The guys ditched me. I am now lost, cold and all alone. It is getting dark and I hear laughing. Please send help.

Agreed, it was for interfering, not jay walking.

Although usually they're trained to use other methods to subdue someone (ie, pepper spray, taser, etc.). Punching her was probably not the most professional response to her grabbing him.  I think most cops in his situaion wouldn't have let it gone on so long.  At the FIRST sign of resistance, most would probably warn them that they're about to get pepper sprayed or tasered, and then follow through pretty quick (or they would take the person to the ground real quick).

I don't blame the cop, I've seen situations like this escalate first hand. "News" mediaand its' reports nowadays is nothing more than opinionated gibberish spewed from the mouths of tanned and siliconed up mannequins who read from a tele-prompter. No credibility like the reporters and correspondents of not too long ago.

Kids these days...  Why is there so much contempt for authority?

My opinion is, despite what may be a shock-to-the-conscious of so many critics, I thought the officer's tolerance and actions (allowing himself to be pushed, etc) were indicative of a LEO holding back.  I'd be willing to bet that had that juvenile been a male, the officer would have 'taken it to the ground,' or OC'd him, etc much more quickly.

Pushing/shoving, raising hands, clenched fists, etc are putting the subject into the realm of aggressive/combative against the officer...  That warrants use of more force than mere verbal commands and grabbing/holding limbs, etc that the officer displayed.  That punch was reactive and she better be glad it was not followed up by a tackle to the ground for handcuffing.

He already had one woman resisting him and then another one comes up and starts shoving him around. Punching her in the face was probably not the best response but at the same time not completely unjustified. If I was an idiot and started pushing a cop around for some reason I wouldn't be crying or surprised about getting struck or tazed or something similar. You know the cop would react somehow because it appears he is alone and obviously wants to get control of the situation somehow. I love how if it is white cop it is automatically racism.

It was as escalated assault on the cop.   You don't lay a hand on cops. Otherwise expect the worst especially when there are two people that lay hand on a cop.

and again

Can we get a mod to merge these threads please?

Interesting that the poll at the end indicates almost 3/4 of the respondents support the officer.

not the cops fault, honestly just because shes a girl, if that was a guy and the officer did that, there wouldnt be a question.  she was touching him, and pushing him, what if she grabbed his gun, it was 2 on one, i dont blame the cop at all
