I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
Hoplite, bro, you are one of my favorite posters here to read. I have much respect for you.
But, that being said, after following your posts in this thread, I have to ask. Did you even watch the video? The same video we're watching? It don't add up.
I mean, I know you must have watched it but you speak from a perspective that is so unlike you and your usual sense of reason. You're a smart person and your intrepretation of this video just boggles my brain. And it also trips out about most every one else here too, judging by their opposing responses.
But, I do have to give you props on standing your ground. Even if you are dead wrong. At least you're dependable. If you're wrong on Monday, we can all count on you being wrong on Tuesday too. j/k
I just love diversity, don't y'all?

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
When I watch this video this is what I see. The office is holding the arms of the woman in black, trying to restrain/cuff her, and the girl in pink with her left hand grabs her friends arm from the officer and shoves her friend to the left getting between them, and (this is where she ****s up) puts her right hand on the officer's left shoulder and pushes him as well getting between them.
I think "Don't put your hands on on the officer" is the first thing on "How Not To Get Your Ass Beat By the Police" list. Lets verify:
Who left the fridge open?
I laughed my ass off. . . she should have left her crazy mad woman friend at home, though.
But he still shouldn't have hit her.

A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
These have already already been said but they seem to be needed again
1 the thread title is wrong, nobody was punched in the face for jaywalking
2 if those were men nothing is said and people would have probably wanted more
3 while people are saying "i was raised not to hit a women" there's two counters to that
- those two people aren't acting like women
- i was raised not to attack, push, smack etc a POLICE OFFICER
IMO he DID show restraint and he would have been justified in punching them both. YOU DO NOT FIGHT THE POLICE
now on the OTHER side, yes I feel the officer needs more training because he should have did a simply take down on the girl, ye she probably would have got all scrapped and bruised up because he was on cement but Id say a good rule of them is the faster you handle a situation the better.
The cop did nothing wrong.
PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.
