    While I have zero information about this instance other than what is presented via the local media channel, why did the officer feel the need to deploy pepper spray?

    Was he being threatened as he attempted the arrest? Maybe threatened by multiple individuals? What was she doing to interfere? Kicking? Spitting?

    Too little information here to make informed decision.

    Yeah. I can't imagine that a house full of folks, in Baltimore, with some needing arresting, wouldn't cooperate completely with law enforcement.
    The 'media' wouldn't actually tell us what actually happened, even if they knew. So, I guess we'll just take the family's account as fact. After all, they said they *****.

    Looked like at the beginning of that video she was hands on the officer at the door. The fact is, don't interfere with the police doing their job and you won't get slammed.
    Then she refused to submit to handcuffing and someone inside opened a window behind the police officer dealing with her. All red flags that get you unwanted police attention.
    There's no fool like an old fool.

    Her first quote is most ironic, coming from the person who likely precipitated the events of the evening.
    "I felt like this whole situation shouldn't have happened at all"

    In today’s society, I’d be a fireman.

    As a cop, generally half the people (the victims) are happy to see you. The other half (suspects) aren’t.

    When the house is on fire? Generally, everybody is happy to see you.

    No matter how justified the Officers actions were (if they were) I assure you that’s one more Baltimore Cop that’s going to get dragged through the mud and, he will never put himself in that position again.

    They hate us (Fire/EMS) just as much. The incidents of our crews being assaulted have been on the rise for several years. There is rarely a day that goes by that we don’t get into a fight.

    That’s sad. I know in some urban areas, y’all get crap. Didn’t realize it was that bad. Slow down in the future. It’ll go out eventually.

    The sad part is that we serve a semi rural area. It’s a mix of different socioeconomic groups but it seems like it doesn’t matter. We also have a big heroin and meth problem in our district so that adds to the drama.

    They all have cameras in our face, scream at us how to save their OD’ing buddy, or how to extinguish the fire, or tell us how to rescue someone. We get shoved or hit, spit on, they throw bottles and garbage at us when thing don’t go their way.

    The entitlement and the “You work for Me” bs has gotten old. The nice thing is we can thump them when needed. We don’t have to follow a use of force continuum.

    Easy solution...
    "oh gee, didnt hear the call, sorry" or "whoop`s, vehicle broke down on the way here, sorry"
    House on fire in the hood, let it burn. Drug overdose, oh well, sucks being a dumbass.
    There is only so far that people can push you, until we ALL start fighting back.

    Wish it was that simple. But we are taking a, “we aren’t gonna fight to save anyone or anything” stance. When the puck heads see us packing our stuff up, they begin to change their tune. And we prosecute everyone who assaults us. But they never get jail time or big fines. Our prosecutor is the king of plea agreements.
