A police officers' job is to protect and enforce: why not stop them before they could do damage and offer to get them a taxi?
Well I'm glad to see people get offended when I say they care more for a dog then their fellow human.
I think offending people with such things also reminds them that they should get offended about such things.
About the rest of your post....
I just feel that the US is at a cross road. Cop brutality no longer only happens to one group of people.Americans in general have to choose to tone the force their police use down or provide a scary law abiding future for their children.

yeah its kinda obscene for that kind of reaction, but also, some people talk to much and are abusive when they speak. This is more the cops fault, but the woman sounded like she had a big mouth. We do not see everything that is said, so..
Im still on the womans side, but just barely.
edit to add
rereading the article and rewatching the video, I think getting arrested for Jaywalking to be extremely anithuman behaviour. If there are no cars, why not cross. I Jaywalk everyday, so do most urban dwellers. Its our RIGHT to walk where we wish. I have Jaywalked right in a cops face, many times. If done properly, and not running through traffic (which is why the jaywalking bylaw exists probably)
Sad, the women should be let free, no mark on the record, same with the cop. An apology to both parties and on with life.. Its a waste to use any resources to persue this in courts, or whatever, that is just giving more power to the ELITE to use their lawyers to play their game..
Bah... sad story

I find it hard to believe that after both girls criminal history has been shown and this wonderful piece of evidence that I cannot believe we all missed for so long, people are still debating this.
