    No, I'm not. I'm looking at a bully, who easily can control this female with brute arm strength, pound someone in the face like an animal.

    All right, the CHP officer should have allowed the lady to walk into oncoming traffic so you would end up running over her and you would have blood on your car and would have been all mentally disturbed that the CHP didn't apprehend the lady.

    Lessons learned, idiots who pass judgement from watching a video have caused cities to burn and looted and people murdered in the heat of anarchy over a video.

    I agree with the take down. I don't agree with the blows the officer gave the woman. He had her down and could have held her down. I, myself, have held many a psychotic down alone until help arrived.

    Still has nothing to do with him punching a defenseless female in the face repeatedly. You can make all the excuses in the world but they'll never justify that video.

    Go back and watch the video, those were liberal girly bunny punches, no blood, no broken nose, no black eyes, no contusions, no bruises, no abrasions.

    Still, a punch is a punch. Holding her down until the other person got there would have accomplished the same thing without the bad press. And I have to say that I find an officer punching anyone who didn't throw a punch at him is out of line. My SIL who is 75 and very frail was stopped one night on the way home from a meeting and the officer slammed her up against the car. I know my SIL. She doesn't mouth off to anyone, and certainly wouldn't have to a police officer. Out population is aging, and handling an elderly person roughly just because you can is really out of line.

    I worked with a lot of people who do things like that woman did. She was probably psychotic. It is illegal for you or I to punch an elderly or disabled person. No good reason for what he did.

    I was being facetious. But there are people who actually think that. Up until about 6 years ago I thought it when I suddenly learned the forces of political correctness were simply keeping its expression mostly suppressed. That's not to say we haven't made tremendously progress. We are nowhere close to the 1960s level of racism where people like Bull Conner were unleashing police dogs on children walking down the street but every generation that made advances thought they'd made so much progress the comparative smaller issues aren't worth discussing. I imagine people in the 1870s who fought a civil war that ended slavery felt "What are you people complaining about, we just fought a war that took the lives of 600,000 people to give you your freedom and you STILL think racism exists? Yeah, in your minds and promoted by race pimps. Time to end this reconstruction garbage."
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    No. There is no conceivable justification for this given her defensive posture, and the ease with which he could have restrained her even if she had resisted (which is unclear, but if she did, only very meekly -- I see no sign of a significant struggle).

    If this guy doesn't lose his job, the entire department needs to be laid off and rebuilt from scratch. It's disgusting.
