    Well, to be fair, cops and other emergency personnel are not actually committing traffic violations because they're *allowed* to do what they do. When I drove an ambulance, I could drive over medians, into oncoming traffic lanes, go through red-light intersections, drive in between traffic lanes, make u-turns any damn where I wanted to, speed, etc, etc. As long as I did it without putting people in jeopardy, of course. What I wasn't allowed to do was pass people on the right.

    Anywho, my point is, what they're doing most likely isn't a traffic violation for them.

    Cops are not SUPPOSED to punch angry people in the face, cops are not thugs nor are they supposed to act like thugs. There was no clear need to strike her in the face and again, he issued no verbal warnings which is EXTREMELY important and something any cop should know to do.

    She was struggling, but I saw no attempt made to cuff the woman in black before the officer struck the woman in pink

    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.
    My thoughts exactly. As a woman, it's easy to find the whole "never hit a woman" bull**** insulting, at best.

    it should be I cannot stand the idea that all a police officer has to do is turn on his emergency lights to pass a red light when there is no emergency.

    Yeah - what gives?
    It's always men perpetuating the unfairness, there, always - I've never heard a woman say things like that . .. doesn't mean they don't do it - I just haven't seen it, but it comes from men a lot.

    Hmm - if this situation was gender-reversed what would everyone's reactions be? If it was a female cop and two males amid the confrontation?
    i think a lot of people would support a female cop.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Then he needs to be re-trained on handcuffing because what he seemed to be trying to didnt appear to be doing anything except grabbing her hands and holding them, not cuffing her.

    Imagine this scene:

    A lone cop is standing in the middle of a group of people watching him wrestle with a person, trying to put handcuffs on them. I run in from the side and start pushing the cop.

    What do you think will happen to me?

    a) Verbal warning to please back up as I am not being polite and am interfering inappropriately
    b) Punch to the face
    c) Chili con facey
    d) Don't taze me bro
    e) Bullet in sphincter

    If I got out of there with a or b, the next thing I would do is buy a ****load of scratchoffs cause I'd be the luckiest man on earth.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    it makes it more difficult when that person is resisting and when someone else comes in and grabs you. when you resist arrest you get your ass kicked plain and simple. i couldn't imagine not complying with an officers instructions. i guess maybe that's because i don't like being in jail.
