I like to see how much of this site are braindead sheep. You can see the mom turning away from the punch, that was most likely intended for her, but she put her kid in the line of fire.

Stupid, f*cking mother. Case closed.

wow. Seems as if we have a witness here who actually saw everything with her own eyes.

"Officials are complaining that Russian television has presented a one-sided account of the encounter, claiming that earlier pictures of the woman attacking the officer with her handbag had not been shown."

Errm... he punched a little girl in the face. No amount of handbag hitting justifies that.

"I had one kid who went to jail, tell me that my dad kept in contact with him to make sure he was okay and if he needed a job when he got out of jail."
^ Your dad`s a super-sweetheart! That`s so insanely nice, I`m jealous!
And I`m not commenting on this post because I really don`t understand the whole thing, but I would like to see it play out in the media.

i think he meant to hit the woman and landed the little girl instead. The mother should not have brought her daughter to a protest anyway.

It doesnt really matter if the cop hit the girl or not, hitting a girls mother with the girl in her hands is a terrible idea. Traumatizing for the kid, you know? Also, he is a COP. A cop who`s job it is to uphold the law, and I am, pretty sure that one of the laws in the world isn`t "Doth thou get hitith with a bag, thou hath the right to punchith thine attacked in the face." He could of easily just avoided the woman or better yet, just ignored her.

By the way, cops arent bad guys... Just some cops, especially after years on the force and seeing some of the things they see, especially in Russia, probably lose it. The cop may just not be able to handle his career.

oh damn just watched the video, he swung too close anyway to where the little girls head was. She only moved her head a couple inches towards where the blow was going when he struck........I have no sympathy for the cop if he gets in trouble wonder if he hits his own wife or kids if he has any

Well mom should have left the kid at home. Taking her along to a protest to start with, she was just using the kid as bait. She is as wrong as the officer is for hitting the kid.

Hey guys..read previous posts and watch the video before you comment. If you watch the video you will see..as i said earlier. The cop never even hits the kid! The picture looks like it but in the video he doesn`t even make contact with that little girl. (the video is in the top right corner) That picture is his hand coming back after hitting the woman and it looks like the media is basically lieing using that picture..I don`t see why he would hit that woman like that, but he definatley did not punch the little girl. :-D

Jesus effing christ. If anything deserves the death penalty or twenty years in jail, its the full grown POLICE OFFICER who decides two punch the-maybe-three year old girl in the face. What a drating scumbag.

Cops are supposed to be trained to withstand a certain amount of stress seeing as how they are given power to subdue and arrest criminals. Therefore the cop should have been able to keep his cool and not punch a mother in her mouth while shes holding a child, all that I`m saying is that if citizens are to trust officers with the power they are given then they shouldnt have to be worried about getting punched in the face because the cop was stressed. That cop deserves to be punished because of his actions.

everyones having a huge go at the cop (well most) but imagine if u were at a protest, theres a lot of shouting and anger, a womans beating u with her a bag and some kids screaming her head off, ur bound to snap eventually. i think he was going for the mother, maybe not even to really punch her, and the kid got in the way, either cos of the motht or not. and cnlbell ^^^ good point, everyone thinks "drat1ng pigs" or something, even thought things would be ALOT worse without police. i think its just unfair coverage

I am so tired of cops being presented as bad guys. Sure, there are good cops and bad cops, but not the majority of the latter. Maybe I am biased, but my dad has been a cop all my life, and he is one of the best ones around. I have had people he`s arrested, come up to me and tell me what a fair and good man he is. I had one kid who went to jail, tell me that my dad kept in contact with him to make sure he was okay and if he needed a job when he got out of jail. My dad has counciled troubled youth to choose better paths and how to get jobs to keep them busy and out of trouble. The town we are in now is small and everyone says he is so much better than the previous Chief who was friends with the drug dealers. There are good cops out there still, I wish there was more equal media coverage of the men and women in law enforcement who are working their @sses off even though a huge portion of the population are ignorant to their sacrifice and too short sighted to see that they aren`t all bad.

I watched the video and I think sabre is right. The cop was aiming for the woman. The kid might have caught a glancing blow, but I think she was just reacting to her mother getting popped in the mouth.

She hit him with a handbag so he PUNCHED her KID? I hope that guy was fired. If I had been that mother I would have gouged his eyes out with my fingernails. No one lays a hand on my child.

hey you dont know wethter he went to punch the mother and she turned the child towards him. u need to see both sides as for the idiot that said they are pigs u need to get a f$%king grip. if police werent around the world would be a lot worse, the streets would be run by drug lords and pimps, u want that do you? the way police are treated is absolutely apalling, and coming from a 15 year old u should know better ANGELICUSD. you cannot judge people like that!!!! uve got me angry now!

I agree that the cop probably had the right to snap but every human needs a certain level of self-control. Every time a kid cries and someones stressed, the kid doesn`t get hit in the face. And even if the mother was apparently "clubbing the officer with her purse", that wouldn`t really provoke me to lay my fist into her face. Maybe attempt to grab the kid and mace her, then return the kid to her. I don`t know. I think the officer over reacted.

There is a video..it`s on the top right...and the cop doesn`t even hit the little girl. The picture is from when his fist is coming back after hitting the woman...it`s really not even close. I don`t see why they are making a big deal about him hitting the little girl..these people can`t see straight or something. (my first post :-D)

I looks like from the aftermath photo that the mother is the one bleeding. I think the kid just caught a portion of it. The mother seemed to be the main target. the kid only go hit with the end two knuckles. That`s not the part of the fist that you hit with.

I totally agree with fluffy pink. No decent mother would bring a small child to a protest, no way. Sounds like the mother was a selfish A$$hole who didn`t think twice about antagonizing law enforcement and using her own child as a human shield and/or inanimate political leveraging object. This kind of irresponsibility breeds the kind of chaos that completely ensures the kind of injustice that was being protested in the first place. Where`s the common sense here?

Now, my question is why would the article discuss the prospects of the cop`s being convincted for assaulting the grown woman. I thought the question was about being convicted for assaulting the young girl. Was that a typo?

psycopyro, you do know that they aren`t commies anymore, right? Face it, he’s an irresponsible cop. Every country has them. Obviously that kind of behavior isn’t condoned by their government since he could face jail time if he’s found to be at fault.

What kind of mother takes her child to something like this anyway. You know that it`s not a safe environment for a kid.You can see she was clearly upset before hand, and her mother should have been more responsible in not taking her. Like jtc970 said, picture taken at the right time. I don`t think the cop really wanted to punch the child!

Yah, the woman pisses him off so he punches the kid in the mouth. Great excuse… Even if he did mean to slug the mother, what is he doing taking a swing at a woman with a child in her arms? Odds are that she would go down and the kid would be injured. Why didn’t he slug her when she was supposedly slapping him with her purse? That would have been the acceptable time to arrest her for assaulting an officer. Sounds fishy, I call BS on the cops excuse.

tomsss, unless you`re a complete idiot, punching a child to stop them crying is a stupid, barbaric and idiotic thing to do, it wouldnt work, plus there`s no reason to punch a child ever, even if the woman did "hit him with her handbag".

well u can`t blame him... if you have a little brat who is continuously screaming and yelling non-stop right in front of you, chances are in almost everyone`s mind is the thought of coming up with the quickest way to shut that kid up. That cop just did it haha... unfortunately in public.

Or maybe mom prtoected her face with her own child that she brought to a violent picket.
She could have simply turned away from a waving arm passing her by and blam the cameras take a picture at the right time.
Pictures may speak a thousand words but that still doesnt tell the full story.

Now now everyone. The article said that the video didn`t tell the whole side of the story.

Maybe the little girl was high on PCP, or hepped up on goofballs. For all we know, the child might have thwarted several attempts by the police to subdue her. Tazers might have been involved with little or no effect.

Can`t we all just get along? ;-/
