    She assaulted an officer, he had every right to subdue her.

    What I'm more amazed by his how difficult a time he had with actually subduing her. I'm guessing he was trying to be more "gentle" when he saw all the camera, but IMO, he was FAR too easy on her, hence why she kept slipping his grasp.
    This.

    She was attacking him, he had every right to protect himself. I don't give a damn if its by a woman or not.

    Good point - he definitely didn't seem to be telling her she was under arrest, rather, it seems that he was trying to restrain her from fighting? (I might be wrong, though).

    Obviously he needs training: #1 - how to actually handle someone who's resisting arrest and #2 - how to use non-face-punching means to deal with someone intervening.

    and the overall title of this thread is misleading - the woman wasn't punched for jaywalking, she was punched because she tried to interfere with the activities of a police officer.

    #1 "Handling" someone who is struggling requires more force, and doing so when a third party is trying to interfere is even harder.
    He did what he had to do. DONT PUSH POLICE OFFICERS. HOW HARD IS THIS?
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Not sure why people are so staunch in taking sides on this one. This is just a video. Is there an article that talks about what actually happened? The video started when the two people were already in bodily contact. Hard to tell who started it.

    Seattle officer punches girl in face during jaywalking stop

    According to Seattle police, the incident began when an officer spotted a man jaywalking in the 3100 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way S. at approximately 3:10 p.m. The man was some 15 feet away from a pedestrian overpass, police said.

    The officer was talking to the man when he saw four young women jaywalk across the same street at the same spot. The officer asked the women to step over to his patrol car, but the women were being "verbally antagonistic toward the officer," according to officials.

    One of the women, later identified as a 19 year old, began to walk away from the scene despite the officer's instructions, prompting the officer to walk over to her and escort her back to his patrol car.

    The girl then "began to tense up her arm, and pull away from the officer while yelling at him," investigators said. The officer told the girl to place her hands on his patrol car, but she refused. When the officer tried to grab hold of her, "she pulled away and twisted, breaking free of the officer's grip several times," the blotter report said.

    When the officer tried to handcuff the girl, another girl, this one 17 years old, intervened and placed her hands on the officer's arm, "causing the officer to believe she was attempting to physically affect the first subject's escape," police said.

    The officer pushed back the second girl, but the girl came back at him. The officer then punched her, police said.
    I was a bit confused as to why the cop was enforcing jaywalking laws (that doesn't happen in NY), but apparently there was good reason:

    The incident happened at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South near the arterial's intersection with Rainier Avenue South, in the vicinity of Franklin High School.

    A Seattle transportation department plan released in 2006 called for Seattle police pedestrian-safety patrols to target jaywalking, particularly near Franklin High and north of South McClellan Street by the Lowe's hardware store.

    Between 2002 and 2006 more jaywalkers were hit by vehicles on Rainier Avenue South than in any other corridor in the city.

    During that period, 61 pedestrians were struck while jaywalking on Rainier Avenue South -- nearly double the number of accidents on Aurora Avenue North, which had the second highest number of jaywalkers hit with 35, according to Seattle Transportation Department records.

    and:

    Metz says Franklin High School asked Seattle Police to enforce the jaywalking law outside campus because of all the students that don't use the sky bridge to safely cross the street.
