    She was struggling, but I saw no attempt made to cuff the woman in black before the officer struck the woman in pink
    I beg to differ. Cops ARE SUPPOSED to punch. It is an accepted and recommended use of force in this situation. It is taught in the academy from the news report I watched.

    Again, the officer is required to give verbal warnings in this case. If the officer felt the application of force was necessary, he had the option of deploying pepper spray which is specifically designed for a situation like this.

    It appears that the other people involved in the incident don't share the sentiment:

    On the video, Officer Ian P. Walsh is seen punching the girl in the face after she tries to intervene in the arrest of a 19-year-old friend near Franklin High School on Monday afternoon. Police arrested the girl, Angel L. Rosenthal, and her friend, Marilyn Ellen Levias, both of whom have criminal records.

    ...

    Rosenthal was charged in November with second-degree robbery. According to prosecutors, she punched a 15-year-old boy in the face while she and a group of youths were on their way to a rave in South Seattle last Aug. 28. The boy told police that his cellphone and $20 were stolen in the incident. A 14-year-old boy told police that he was punched in the head and his hat was stolen. Authorities say the case was dismissed when the boys refused to testify.

    In April 2008, Rosenthal was charged with third-degree theft after she allegedly stole a minivan in Tukwila, prosecutors said. Kent police said she used a screwdriver to break the ignition and start the vehicle. The charge was later amended to theft of a motor vehicle. Rosenthal was given a deferred disposition charges would be dropped if she stayed out of trouble because it was a first-time offense, said Ian Goodhew, deputy chief of staff for Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg.

    Levias was charged in February 2009 with third-degree assault after she allegedly pushed a King County sheriff's deputy down. According to charging documents, on Feb. 3, 2009, deputies were called to the Ruth Dykeman Children's Center, a Burien center for troubled girls, in response to a report that Levias was being abusive toward staff. When Levias was confronted by Deputy Amy Zarelli, she pushed the female deputy, causing her to fall, charging papers said. Levias was given a deferred disposition because it was a first-time offense, Goodhew said.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but what are you basing this on? To the best of my knowledge, Seattle PD has said that they believe the guy complied with all rules.

    I dont know how the SPD operates, but I am familiar with the LAPD and their MO is to issue a verbal warning or command to someone resisting arrest or pushing an officer but isnt directly endangering the officer's life. If the person persists, a push is acceptable to dislodge someone but beyond that, deployment of pepper spray is usually the next step.

    Again, I dont know the specific MO of the SPD, but I know that physically punching someone who is not presenting anything more than a nuisance or at least not directly threatening the life of the officer or bystanders is a no-go for almost ANY police department in the US.

    In this case, the officer appears to have lost his temper and struck someone in anger, which is not acceptable for a police officer.

    If someone just walked up to an officer and pushed them, it might be reasonable to expect the officer to give a warning. When the officer is already involved in a scuffle with one person and then another joins in the fray, I would be surprised if any police department would require the officer to hand out verbal warnings before using physical force.

    it's funny because after he jacked her in the grill she got out of his way and he was able to finish the job at hand. seemed pretty effective if you ask me. not to mention the punches are free and pepper spray costs money. looking out for the tax dollars.
