    No. A police officer needs use whatever force is required to remove any potential threat. 1- this is a woman 2- she is unarmed He could clearly overpower and restrain her without punching her

    I agree. The officer was literally trying to turn her face into mush.

    I have intentionally avoided this story because I knew it would just piss me off to no end. I was right.

    YES! there is justification. Itís called walking while black.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Imagine if the woman was Caucasian. The cop's career would have ended that same day. Assuming that if the woman was white the cop would have still felt inclined to try to beat her to a pulp.

    Did you hear that the cop who did the beating was transported to the hospital inna ambulance, on the taxpayers dime, evidently to get a band aid for the cut on his knuckle from pounding the woman into the concrete?

    OH…forgot to say, the women went straight to booking; might get to the hospital now that the video went viral though.
