    Sure. The woman was drunk in public, had put her 6 year old daughter in extreme danger, and was moving towards violence with the police officer. He took action to end such an opportunity immediately.

    Probably didn't mean to knock her out.

    Good bust. Grandma will probably be forced to provide full time care for the granddaughter a lot sooner than she expected.

    No. The victim was slightly resistant but not to the degree that the officer needed to handle her so aggressively. That body slam was excessive!

    That looked completely disproportionate to the resistance she was giving.

    Surprisingly, I think I may side with the officer on this one. Disagreeing with the officer is not cause to resist arrest, odds are it will only elevate the situation. Like what happened in this case. The dash cam clearly shows the officer tried to get her to comply with minimal force, she continued to try to pull out of it, and I'm not surprised she was eventually put on the ground to give the officer a better condition to secure the arrest. Her being knocked out does not look like the intention.

    As a grappler I can tell you...slams and trips and takedowns can injure someone more than a punch. And on accident. I've had surgery for one such takedown.

    Oh hell no!

    If I was that cop I'd have sung lullabies to her and braided her hair until she fell asleep THEN would have taken her into custody.

    I've dented the hoods of a few cars with the foreheads of drunks. Sometimes you have to take a more assertive approach to get the idiot to shut up and start paying attention.

    I do not deny the probability of danger, just saying it looks like the intention was to ensure an arrest. If he *wanted* to hurt her there are dozens of take-downs expressly designed to use the force of the fall against the opponent. As a grappler, you should know that.

    Those are clearly the only two choices ... brute force or patty-cake.
