Odd video.


because that's most Americans for you. if it's not affecting them in their everyday lives, they won't get involved, they'll just sit their and watch.

OK.. enough is ENOUGH!

Look at all the people standing around rubbernecking while this racist thug assaults the girl. If any of those "bystanders" had a pair, that pig should have been beaten into the ground and left in a puddle of his own excrement!

It's time to rise up and take back our streets from these badge-heavy fascists.

That cop was being over powered by that little girl. That cop is embarassed for sure. With that being said..I would have hosed that mouthy girl with pepper spray. You can say it was wrong all you want.. He was having a hard enough time with the little one.. that big girl would have whooped his butt. He was 100% right hitting her.. I might have gone for a throat chop...to shut her up at the same time.


Don't you think he was already taking it easy on the 17 yr old?

I wonder if he had a taser?.... If I were that officer.. Those girls would have been flopping on the ground like an epileptic taser fit....

I only give this a 5 on police brutality.

That was a really pathetic effort on his part.

i resisted arrested once with simple phrases inbetween their mindless questioning of me, i was even frisked quickly, before i could react (which could have been considered fighting back) one cop found my 3/4 ounce of um, Gods green plant, so anyways,

I walked away with half ounce and a slight scolding..

they knew they had no right to stop me out of nowhere physically harass me. at that point they pinched some weed, and let me go.. I was being human with them the whole time, even smiling and being cool with them,, they were 3. 2 were giant motherfuxxers, with a supervisor

moral of the story, Keep your cool around Police Officers,. try to remind them of their true position as Peace Officers instead. if they are human, they will play along with you too! try it..

Just another video of a dirty rotten worthless cop escalating things out of control because those women didn't "respect his authoratah!". What a case again. The cop is an ass, it's JAYWALKING for the love of Pete! He should have never bothered them in the first place. Worthless cop. He should try treating people with respect and understand that if you nitpick and pester people for the dumbest things you are gonna get a bad reaction. Oh yeah and good for the girls, some cop doesn't deserve respect just because he has a gun and badge. Man cops are so worthless...

It's amazing how many people on ATS will post with their mind made up and ignore anything in the video or the facts and shout their outrage.

yeah but u gotta remember this was all because of jaywalking. this whole stop was unnecessary, that's why it escalated to where it did. i honestly feel cops should have a 10 min. course in empathy everyday before going on patrol.

1) Where did I say which side I was talking about in this debate? I guess you know which side is clearly doing what I said.

2) I didn't see anything in the video showing the actual stop, so I can't deem it unnecessary, but then again if a law is broken is it truly unnecessary?

Watching that video, I'd have to side with the cop. What did she think would happen if she physically interfered? He was already in a somewhat dangerous situation in trying to arrest someone who has being belligerent. Through her actions, she escalated the threat and he responded by defending himself forcefully. He doesn't know what she's trying to do.

In my opinion, he was justified to defend himself.

I saw her push the officer, and then physically intervene. I believe the officer over-reacted but technically, she *did* assault the officer.


Also, look around him. It's a damn mob. He's alone, out-numbered, and in an obviously hostile situation. He was dealing with one suspect, a female, who he was trying to restrain 'appropriately' (long gender rant here), and had a SECOND female he also had to contend with.

Personally, I would've tasered them both. I'm somewhat surprised he didn't.

lol how could he do all of what you said when he couldn't even restrain a 17 year old female,he obviously took coffee break's during the hand to hand combat training.

but back on topic...

this officer needs to retrain on how to deal with the public,this is the worst attempt at an arrest i have ever seen.

Did you watch the same video as I did? Yes verbal threats shouldn't have that kind of reaction, but when you put your hands on him and start pushing him now that will get the reaction it did. To many people think that an officer should just be passive and just talk it out and yes they should,but when it becomes hands on the rules change.We just see the end of it, we do not see the beginning of this situation. The officer may have felt threatened we don't know. As for why did she even get involved and put her hands on him only she knows. In fact there was some guy trying to restrain her before she got involved. I guess what I am saying is did she deserve the punch don't know i wan't there.Did the officer deserve to have someone (be it girl or boy)get in there and physically put their hands on him ,NO. Both sides should share the blame for this situation.

You could've just read the news article linked to in the original post...


According to Seattle police, the incident began when an officer spotted a man jaywalking in the 3100 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way S. at approximately 3:10 p.m. The man was some 15 feet away from a pedestrian overpass, police said.

The officer was talking to the man when he saw four young women jaywalk across the same street at the same spot. The officer asked the women to step over to his patrol car, but the women were being "verbally antagonistic toward the officer," according to officials.

One of the women, later identified as a 19 year old, began to walk away from the scene despite the officer's instructions, prompting the officer to walk over to her and escort her back to his patrol car.

The girl then "began to tense up her arm, and pull away from the officer while yelling at him," investigators said. The officer told the girl to place her hands on his patrol car, but she refused. When the officer tried to grab hold of her, "she pulled away and twisted, breaking free of the officer's grip several times," the blotter report said.

When the officer tried to handcuff the girl, another girl, this one 17 years old, intervened and placed her hands on the officer's arm, "causing the officer to believe she was attempting to physically affect the first subject's escape," police said.

The officer pushed back the second girl, but the girl came back at him. The officer then punched her, police said.

Try following your own advice before spewing out such worthless rhetoric.

I disagree.. Jaywalking is *snip* dangerous..

people walk across the street without looking making EVERYONE ELSE stop because they have it beaten into their heads that
--the pedestrian has the right of way--
and I will sue when you run my ass over..

the cop -in this case- is in the right..

To be honest: We don't see the whole incident in the video, who knows what happened before? Those Women were very mouthy, didn't wanted to cooperate, struggled with the cop. I'm sorry, but in my oppinion, he did the right thing. You don't fight with a cop, you don't call him bad things and you just follow his orders instead of behaving like a complete idiot. And Jaywalking is dangerous after all and against the law.

I mean, please everybody think about: How would you react, if you get called things and basically get attacked? All those Goody two-shoes should just think how they would react. Walking away? "Peacefully" talking them down? You all know that won't work.

More and more, with all the hate Cops get thrown at them, with all the people who think they can fight and mess with the cops, i somehow can understand why they get more and more aggressive. People should just calm down, don't call every cop a pig or bastard and just don't make any problems and then i bet most cops will calm down (There are some assholes, but there are also assholes who aren't cops)

i completely agree with. i am in no way justifying what she did, it was stupid, and i would never do something like that in a million years. but usually you protect yourself with defense, not offense.
