Everybody keeps crying foul and saying the police officer was excessive in using force against the 15 yr old. And that she could have been killed and all kinds of other liberal rhetoric. I can buy the 'she could have been killed' conjecture if the police officer did something like draw his gun and shoot her. And everybody keeps ignoring the fact that prior to the police officer 'violently attacking' the 15 yr old she had just got through assaulting a teacher and other people, never mind the fact that she's drunk. But people just like to jump on the bandwagon of knee jerk liberal bias and be like; "OMFG COP WAS BEING A JACK BOOTED FASCIST POLICE STATE THUG!! LOLOLOL!!11!".

Get real...

How can you possibly reach this conclusion and make this determination having what little information you have?

Let me save you the time in answering. You can't.

Why is it that in in almost every video I see where something like this happens, the cop has (or looks like he has) a shaved head?
Is the shaved head thing a trend with cops now?


That is something that I've definitely noticed with most police videos that I've seen on TV recently.

Don't know if it's a recent trend, but I definitely find it creepy. These guys aren't in the military.

No offense, but you have to be kidding me. The girl easily could've broken her neck if she hit the wall at a bad angle. The cop recklessly ran up to her and pushed, a guy who happened to be much bigger than the girl.

You find this kind of behavior OK by a police officer?

Injustice Everywhere

This is a report of just ONE DAY,of misconduct of LEO'S. Its sad that in the world we live today,you dont know who the criminal is. Not EVERY officer is bad,just like not every citizen is. But these are the instances of those Officers getting caught. The "gang in blue" is real. No Officer can tell me otherwise.They do protect their own,like other criminal organizations. Its a tough job,but if you dont know how to treat your fellow human beings,find a new line of work. Those officers that commit these type of acts,should be punished,with double the amount of time,the average citizen gets.

All I have to say is What does your training tell you? Your training is only a guideline to how you are required to react in any given situation. For instance my Dad had a young guy walk into his office and give himself up because he had just shot his father and believed that he had killed him. My father jailed him to protect him from his own (meaning the young guy) subsecquent actions and went to investisgate as he was the only officer available at the time. He found the father laying on his couch with a 22 bullet wound to his head. My father immediately called an ambulance as the father was still alive. He died of the wound unfortunately. The background story was that the father was an alcohol abuser who had beat his wife and the son. The family had not made any reports as they were too afraid and it was the early 60s and people still didn't do that. In that case my father regretted that he couldn't have done more. In another case he was involved in he was called in the middle of the night to a mans place that had threatened to kill himself and his family. My Dad carried a 45 automatic which at the time there were no regulations for sidearms. He also carried it without the clip in the gun and no bullet chambered. He was taught by his guru ( the NWMP) officer to know the community and its inhabitants in order to know what problems were inherent. In that particular case he was sitting on the couch with the man who was armed with a 303 rifle. After assertaining that the man was no threat and would not use the rifle to harm himself or his family, my Dad still pulled is firearm on the man to make him surrender. Remember that his weapon had no bullets in it. He got the guy to surrender and nothing was lost except for humility of the guy in question. As far as I am concerned and a lot of police officer relatives and survivors your entire ideology is flawed. You aren't trained to know the locals well enough and you aren't trained to react properly to the threats around you. You react disprortionately and immediately. Your information is flawed./ Your communities that you are assigned to no longer trust you the way they should. They will no longer report problems around them because of the corruption involved.

I can because it's pretty clear, and i did easily reach that conclusion.

It's pretty cut and dry that it was unnecessary, excessive, and uncalled for, as there was no danger regardless of what the officer might have thought. Police are trained. Trained to act differently and with reserved professionalism, not to slam girls who were not a clear threat into walls. They can't act first ask questions later simply when they *think* there *might* be a threat or simply because someone failed to comply with verbal commands (and this why children get tazed and assaulted, because some of them DO think they have the right to whatever means necessary simply because they are not "obeyed"). THAT is the problem.

Please see my previous posts for further explanation. I do get tired of repeating myself.

I do NOT know the circumstances or the whole story, no, but i can think of very little that would convince me that the actions in the video were justified.

So that makes it all right for him to slam her into a wall full force? That makes it all right for cops to slam drunk people around for "disobeying verbal commands?"

Get Real.

Maybe you should watch the first two minutes after all. Lets take a look at that "innocent" little girl and what she was into. Drunk and disorderly (in school) alcohol on school property, giving alcohol to minors, she was expelled from school and was fighting with school officials in the street, that's assault and battery. Refusing a lawful order by a police officer is resisting arrest. He pushed her down to make the arrest.

The officer did not beat her, mace her or use a taser on her He very professionally handcuffed a drunk and resisting person, helped her up and put her in the car.

Why is a U.K. newspaper printing a four month old non story about America?

As sad as this is, all that is probably going to happen is the cop gets a slap on the wrist.

Like 2 weeks leave with pay or something.

I think that any cop that even remotely steps over the boundaries should be punished just as a normal citizen would.

Think of it this way also. Would you be angry if this was a teacher pushing a child down? How bout a teenager pushing an elderly man down like this? Think of it this way,YOUR family member being pushed like this. How would you feel? How would you react? What justice would you want done? Regardless of what was said,is this REALLY justified? Its just sick.

Because the cop just decided to do this out of the blue. Because she bore absolutely no responsibility for her actions that day and the consequences she brought down on herself. Because she should be able to act out and test the limits and rest assured that someone's going to be looking out for her because she was just distraught or kidding. No. It was just her day to be picked on. I see how this works. Everyday in our society I see how this works. Push things to the limit then whimper when it doesn't go the way you think it should or when it's time to face your consequences and own it. I'm out.

I think you have confused me with another poster.

I am totally against the cop's actions and think it is wholly unjustified.

To answer your question, though, yes, i would be furious.
