TextReally you would not choose hand to hand combat with a 62 year old woman lol you would just tase her ?

But you can see the people closing in on the officers from both sides.
That woman clearly could have avoided the whole scene but decided she wanted to walk right into or through it.
One officer clearly tells her to stay back or she is going to jail.
At that point the camera cleverly pans right and keeps her of screen, at which point she is probably continuing towards the officer. The officer that eventually tasers heris seen approaching her. We don't know what he said. Perhaps he told her she was under arrest for not complying with the original officers demand to stay back?
Lets say she was told to stop and she continues walking toward the gathering crowd, If it was you behind her would you go "hands on" and risk hand to hand combat with her? allow her to disregard your order to stop and walk away? or use a non lethal device to stop her?
I'm saying it is the disrespectful attitudes of the people that create a lot of the police brutal actions, not all of it, but throw in the chance of mob mentality and violence and that requires additional police assets.
At the end of the video there were at least 6 police vehicles there. Why? Because the crowd was growing and probably prone to violence.

Why is this cop putting his hands on her in the first place?
Oh watch the video. She was told not to approach,twice. You can hear the people on the porch telling her not to come up.
She is off screen but obviously she has the attitude that she dont listen to no police. she will do what she wants.
well she paid the price. She could have very easily continued walking away. she didnt.
But I do like the way you think. If confronted by the police and being detained, just pull away and they they have to leave you alone at that point.
Personal responsibility. She put herself in that situation. Nobody else did. NOBODY but her.
she obviously wasnt walking away.
