Do any of you have sisters?
What if I saw one of them walking with some friends and one of them spits on the sidewalk - something which is illegal in some places - So I tell them to come over to my car.
They come over, but the spitter "gets mouthy" and starts walking away, so I forcibly grab her by the wrist and try to subdue her.
A struggle ensues, and it's clearly one-sided.
Your sister tries to stop me from bullying her friend (which I'm doing for no good reason,) so I sock her in the eye, and continue on with my "business."
Defending my actions would bring you right down to my [disgusting, low] level, no matter what your reasoning is...

You can not deny that there are two sides to every story.
We only see one side of the story. Sure the lady got punched, but what did she do to deserve it?
When the video starts you see her resisting the officer. So what did she do to get hands on with him?
I would like the full story not half.
On a side note, I never had that much trouble cuffing anyone. Some women were wiry but with them brute force and wristlocks always overcame any situation.
This cop needs to be fired for either being a wuss or just unfit for duty.

I think this is weak and I think those of you that are justifying this cops action is a little weak as well. What do you want to bet that this officer has military training? And what do they do in the Military? They train you to kill and use brute force. Not exactly something we should be encouraging when we want some one to be a peace officer. It looked to me like the officer was just itching for a fight and I do think he used excessive force for what amounts to nothing more than a misdemeanor. Give her a ticket and go on your way. What was he doing physically restraining someone for Jaywalking? That just doesn't hold up here as a valid argument. While she should have just backed down a little and gone to jail, maybe people are sick of being treated like they are terrorists whenever they create a misdemeanor offense.

The cop did a great job and they got what was coming to them. Maybe they should try sitting down, shutting the hell up and following instructions. Idiots can't just start grabbing a hold of a cop just because they don't like their friend getting stopped and or arrested. Stay the heck out of his face, and keep your stinking hands to yourself if you don't want punched in the face. Personally if I was a cop I would have simply tazed them both and been done with it.
