    I agree. But the people weren't keeping their cool and they were attacking someone. If they attacked someone that person has a RIGHT not only legally but MORALLY to defend themselves. At the end of the day cops are people and they have to subscribe to the law that we all follow. However, given the passivity of the American public most cops can behave whichever way they want to and get away with committing traffic violations that those very same cops would prosecute a civilian car for doing.

    While I do think the officer would have been justified in use of appropriate force to subdue the woman, a punch to the face is NOT appropriate force. His life was not in danger, she was not armed, she was not striking his face, and he offered no verbal warnings (which you are required to do prior to the use of any force).

    What he should have done is immediately call for another officer.

    It was a disproportionate use of force where it was not necessary.

    There's a reason an officer's radio is at the shoulder.

    If he really wanted to bring the woman in, handcuffs should have been involved sooner.

    if he thought his life was in danger he would've shot her not punched her. he did what he had to do. if you assault a cop you will get jacked up. i'm amazed he didn't pull out his club and really beat the crap out of her.

    Please don't do that. . . don't pull the "you should never hit a wooooman." . . . If these were 3 men would your reaction - or anyone's reaction - be different?

    They were both fighting him - one was resisting arrest and the other was helping her out.
    Was he right to hit? No - because she actually didn't hit him. . . minor overreaction, it's actually understandable in this situation.

    But the fact that she has boobs and a **** is no reason for any kind of differential treatment no matter how you were raised. My daughter is 6 and I'll be damned if I let her believe that she should be treated *better* than someone else purely based on her gender.

    If these two women didn't want to be in a fight with an officer they should have conducted their selves different and still treated him with respect - not resisting an arrest (even if they didn't actually DO anything worth being arrested over) is definitely one way to avoid a confrontation like this - but did they? I wish someone had the entire incident on film to make a more balanced call on this.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
