I don't know what she did to cause such a response!! Maybe an old girlfriend?

Took her out, and I don't mean on a date.

Save the bandwidth.

Pick the following letter for your favorite response:

a). All cops are guilty of everything or something and this video proves it! Let's have a lynching!

b). The video doesn't look good. The person is in a wheelchair and no one in a wheelchair is capable of anything other than rainbows and unicorns.

c). Who really knows what went on prior to the video clip? How about some background and facts?

d). The video doesn't look good because the handicapped person swung first. The DT was deserved for the physical attack.

e). Kill 'em all. Humanity sucks. Let the Creator sort it out.

I think that was a lucky hit on the officer's part (white shirt = Command officer?) ... even he looked surprised when she went down!

Judging by her celebratory hopping just prior to Ofc. White approaching her, methinks there was clearly something that transpired before the few seconds that we see in the link.

Well, that PR flag went down quick. Did I see some fluids flying at the officers there?

Maybe someone from Philly can chime in. I heard that someone else threw something at the officer and he thought it was the girl he punched since she turned away. Not saying she didn't throw something either, but the liquid was from someone else.

Regardless of the cause... My only question is why didn't he at least try to grab her? Here, that'd probably get you written up depending on the liquid. If it was gas, alcohol, acid, alkali, etc you'd be good. Water or beer and we'd be taking a few days off.

Big man to punch that small woman in the mouth. Big man.

Watch the video again. On the left side, another person (wearing a black sweat shirt) slings liquid of some kind towards the officer. It looks like, as he turns around, he might have thought it was the woman he punched, throwing something on him.

Regardless, how is punching a woman in the face the correct response?

I'm usually on the cops side but really? He couldn't place her under arrest?

Department deserves the heat if they won't fire this guy.

Uh, he did place her under arrest. I won't go into all the details of Use of Force / Control Tactics, but "Hard Empty Hand" level includes everything from a wrist grab to a punch in the face, i.e. if one is justified then so is the other. Even if it doesn't look great on video.

It's easy to MMQB the guy based on 36 seconds of video played over, and over, and over again. But the burden will be (or should be) the officer's surroundings and reasonable belief at the time of the incident. Any civilian would want the same consideration if they were accused of misconduct or a crime of any sort.

That means that I can punch a woman in the face for throwing water at me? Why don't we see that more in the movies?

I just don't see the justification. Disparity of force. He punched her in the face. Shes bleeding from the mouth. She didn't even DO anything wrong. Where is the accountability?
