    The key is he never issued verbal commands or warning with is SOP in every single police department that I am aware of. The woman was also unarmed and not posing a threat to the life of the officer, that makes a difference.

    Well, since the two, "blokes", that were there were black, the same outrage would abound.

    Jesse and Al have a money making oppurtunity here, because it won't take long for it to become a, "black thang".

    We wouldn't have any cops worth having, if they were totally emotionless.

    Walk a mile in my shoes. Cops are human.

    In any case, this is silly. He was involved with two people at one time: one resisting arrest, one attempting to help the other resist arrest. That is always a bad thing. The potential to lose control of the situation is high. You never know what may happen when this crap starts: someone may pull a weapon or attack you from behind. You're outnumbered, your attention is divided, and that puts you in a tight spot. You have to regain control quickly. So he punched her, so what... it's not like he went all Rodeny King on her with a nightstick.

    Moral of the story: don't resist arrest, and don't help someone else resist arrest.

    [Officers Guild President] Rich O'Neil told KCPQ-TV that punching her in the face was an appropriate use of force as the officer [Ian P. Walsh] struggled with two women and a crowd formed. O'Neil says it's wrong to call the punch police brutality or racist.

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

    It was a disproportionate use of force where it was not necessary.
    A punch to the face is not lethal force.. :roll
    If his life was in danger, he should have shot the stupid bitch.

    The response was appropriate, attack a cop and get punched in the ****ing face.
    Im tired of this passive sissy bull**** expectations from the police, if someone attacked you like that, you'd punch them in the ****ing face.

    Frankly you kind of deserve to be punched for being stupid enough to go up and shove a police officer. Had he continued to punch her, that would have been overboard, but I see no problem with how he responded.
