I have no issue puting a man's lights out in ANY defensive situation.
I only mean this as purely constructive... You may want reevaluate your beliefs and tactics. If your failure to properly engage a violent subject resulted in an escalation of force, or injury to someone else, and you worked for me, I'd have your job over it.

This job is hard enough without you dragging you personal baggage into it. It is causing you to lack an impartial attitude, which is key to police work. The people you work with, and citizens you swore to protect deserve better.

His use of force in that situation would get him fired here...And it would warrant presenting the facts to prosecutors for charges..
He was out of line and over the top....

Being in a high stress situation does not erase bad decisions what was use of force ? "sucker punch" on the response to subject.
Ask tell make , not Punch in face.

And yes I have gone toe to toe ALOT I broke a 200lb womans tooth and it took 5 jailers to get her in "the chair."
This was a hippie chick thinking she was funny, Does she go to jail...YES.... his use of force was a mockery and he should have nopt been on the street if he can't handle that little bit of stress.

I've got no issue with striking a woman when necessary. This was absolutely not necessary. I won't be supporting him and I don't think anyone should.

This officer is the exact reason civilians hate us.

If participating in a circle-jerk echo chamber is your thing, more power to you. Unfortunately, you may have to tolerate opposing opinions from time to time. Such is life; deal with it.

Save the drama!

You want respect here earn it by having an open mind.

You have an alligator mouth and a hummingbird *** when it comes to substantive contributions.
