I side with the cop. She was resisting and he had to one up the force. Also, she kinda looked like she needed a good punch in the face :P

Im surprised no one got shot, or tased for that matter. However, I would like to see the reason behind this. The video starts after the situation gets even more heated.

I feel sorry for the guy. That would have been really intimidating for him having all those people around trying to interfere, and getting in his face with the cameras when he`s just trying to do his job

Sorry, don`t interveen when a cop tries to arest someone: she asked for it. i know its easy being anti-cop, caus e its cool, and to say that hes propbably racist because he hit a black woman, but that is just dumb and false. Im sure it ttok him that long because he was afraid he would get poo for hurting the woman who is resisting arrest. Cops suck until, you call them for help!lol

Normally I`d be on the side of the girl, but she was trying to stop him from arresting somebody. She deserved it. Someone should have helped the policeman.

@green_btrfly: If we are both entitled to our opinions, why are you saying that by my having a different opinion lowers me to the level of "a dick on a computer."
Yes, in REAL LIFE, if I were to be approached with a different opinion then mine, I would definitely have a discussion about it. If I thought someone was talking crazy, I would call shenanigans.
And seriously, resulting to name-calling? Can`t you have a simple discussion with someone without turning into a little girl who didn`t get her way?

The girl in the green top was arrested for resisting` the one in the pink was arrested for assaulting an officer. The cop is on desk duty till it`s investigated. The only thing he did wrong is he took way too long to get the first one under control. He should have tazed or pepper-sprayed her and put her in the car a lot sooner.

Thanks, GreyYes and Mulan182.
You can collect your swastika neck tattoo on the right...

Green, I say that what he did was within his right.
My question of his professionalism lay in: "Is a j-walking citation worth a street brawl?"

It doesn`t really matter if it was two girls or two guys; There really was no way for the patrolman to arrest a summer school student without looking petty on video.

On top of that, the spectacle CAUSED more j-walkers, which was what his presence needed to prevent.

Normally I`m the one who sides with the offender but she was obviously resisting, grabbing, and attacking the officer. The second you lay your hands on an officer of the law, he can do whatever he wants, including shoot you.

a seperate thought here.... am I missing all these posts that are like "this is unfair cause she`s a girl!?" cause imo this has nothing to do with equal rights, at least I don`t see a problem in that instance, I think the controversy here is over the professionalism of the cop, did he or did he not do the right thing.

I`m a fan of don`t dish it out if you can`t take it.

lol, no that`s not at all I wasn`t SAYING anything should be anyway at all! I was just saying that where I got arrested they didn`t touch me; HOWEVER, I didn`t resist arrest, and honestly idk what their policy would be for something like that. thats a factor.
From what I`ve read (not 100% on this) he grabbed her by the arm because she was walking away from him when he was trying to cite her for jaywalking, and she didn`t have an ID on her. Do I have that right? in that case grabbing her by the arm without any prior verbal warning (which there may have been and i missed it in which case this isn`t true) is just kind of rash. The punch to the face, was self defense. The girl grabbed him. I mean yeah that sux that she got popped, but I mean he had to do SOMETHING. There may have been better options but he handled it as best he could.

in the VERY beginning of the vid she wasn`t being all batpoo crazy ghetto, not if it all STARTED that way, then she was a threat from beginning

Did the cop hit her? Yes he did, there is no question there about that. However re-watch the video if you think he was in the wrong. The cop was trying to arrest the girl, and she was RESISTING arrest, she was struggling to get away as he was trying to handcuff the girl. Then big pinky there after being told serial times by other people to stay out of it goes in and starts trying to shove the cop off of the other girl who is already trying to resist arrest and starts shoving her hands into his face.

Here is a simple fact ladies, if you want to be treated like men, then when we treat you like one in every way do not cry about how we are being abusive. Had that been two guys who ganged up on that cop either he would have pulled out a taser and tased them, or would have pull out a loaded gun and aimed it at them. Those girls got off easy compared to what he would have done had it been two guys doing the same poo.

Damn, green butterfly, you are hard core.

So you`re saying since a male cop shouldn`t put his hands on a female, he should have used other means to restrain her like tazing her or using pepper spray or hitting her with a baton until she stayed down and could THEN be frisked by a specially trained female cop with 3 witnesses?

Is that what you`re saying? Damn, you`re cold!

"I too have been arrested "

right, and everyone`s experience is exactly the same isn`t it?

I find it rather difficult to believe that EVERYONE here just absolutly KNOWS when someone is telling the truth or not, cause you know the web is 100% transparency, or maybe some are simply psychic.... either way. I`m entitled to an opinion, and you`re entitled to disagree. I`m entitled to know what I say is true or not and you are entitled to say it`s bullpoo.

I thought this forum would be a good source for learning from multiple regions/peoples experiences and knowledge, but aparently it`s just for pointing fingers and making fun of people?

Though I`m sure it`s easier to be a d!ck when you`re hiding behind a computer screen and have no idea who you are talking to. I`m almost positive you people don`t act this way in real life. you are becoming those things which you hate most and make fun of on a daily basis.

"because I`ve been arrested, and the cops weren`t allowed to lay hand on me, they had to wait on a female cop to come assist."

I call shenanigans. I too have been arrested in my far distant past (when I was underage and check it, I have boobies too!) and there was no "waiting for a female officer" crap. I didn`t resist, I didn`t yell at him, I did what he told me to and was respectful because I was in the wrong. I was put in the back of the squad car as peacefully as you can be in an arrest and it was a done deal. I wouldn`t doubt that you probably have been arrested but making up stories to benefit your opinions is ridiculous.

Why is the cop in the center of attention here? The shocking part is that the crowd doesn`t help the police officer and just watches how he gets assaulted. He had every right in the world to punch the lady that pushed him and be rough on the one that resisted arrest. Women commit crimes too you know...

There`s definitely more to this situation than the video presents. If those girls didn`t want to get manhandled, they shouldn`t have been assaulting a police officer. Regardless of that though, once the cop saw that there were at least 10 people filming the whole thing, he probably should have just given up, because the footage definitely makes him look the bad guy. White cop vs. black girls....yikes.

up in County or in front of a judge. This is a universal truth, ever since people began to live in societies requiring peace officers.

Pinky got off light. The officer couldn`t tackle her; he`d be easy meat for the wolves then. She got a black eye where she could have easily been tased, pepper sprayed or hit with a baton.

All perfectly justified, not just in my opinion, but under the law. The only reason this is getting play is because of politics, not law.

This is like trying to explain something to a toddler.

Codejockey, the cop told the first girl to come stand by the car while he dealt with somebody else re: jaywalking.

She wouldn`t. She decided to ignore him and try to leave. Pay special attention here. The officer said, "do this simple thing" and she refused. This is where the decision tree begins to get narrow.

The cop goes to get the girl, possibly not even thinking to arrest her at this point but to GET HER TO STAND BY THE CAR, like he fugging said.

Does this girl`s friends help her situation at this point? They do not. They begin to form a loose circle, begin to verbally harass the cop, and frankly (from what I can see) start to get a little close for comfort. Then pink girl, egged on by the forming mob, decides to escalate.

Now, any _guy_ knows that if you put your hands on a cop, shove a cop, take a swing at a cop...it`s all basically the same thing. WHAM, you wake

I`m glad for once most of the comments are pro cop here. This one is rather obvious though, so it would have been upsetting otherwise. Everything that had to be said about why he was right has already been said, so I`ll just add... don`t argue with cops, argue with lawyers.

and I hope that pink shirt bitch gets charged with whatever the equivalent in that state is for interfering with a cop.

"That`s funny, because on the video I saw assaulting a police officer."
Go back and look again: The other assaulted the patrolman after he grabbed the one. He grabbed the one because she did not show ID when asked; The physical part began over ID. Then, the OTHER ONE shoved him, he slugged her and went back to grabbing the first one. It does not show him arresting the one he hit.

It`s not like he was out directing traffic and she walked up and slugged him... ;-)

But, he is acting out of anger, not logic.
It`s shows him ignoring the one he hit, to go back and arrest a mouthy j-walker. So, is crossing the street worse that shoving a patrolman?

If a civilian is not in danger, a cop`s first job is to protect themself. She`s lucky she didn`t get tased.

idk, he probably shouldn`t have punched her, but she definitely should not have been resisting either. I could see pepper spray going better here. It`d get her to stfu and save her a punch in the face. giving the officer time to cuff and book it.

1) I never said anyone was in the right when shoving the patrolman.
2) He was trying to arrest her because she did not present ID when asked. That is within his right.

When you were in high school, as in under 18, did you carry state ID?
That $25 j-walking ticking is going to cover all the man-hours spent answering questions about "X-odd Corner Arrest Incident," right?

It was too much force and the whole thing took him away from the real priority: Advising the multitude of people to use the cross-walk.
Instead, he almost started a student riot.

Sometime before sun rise, this guy`s face will be on a motivational with a tag "Welcome to the US. If you so much as cross the street to go to school, we`ll Bill Pickett your ass to ground..."

Altaru: You have a point about `I hate moments like this, when you realize that women only want equality when it benefits them...`, Some women believe they can get away with being violent because they are a woman.

A friend of mine was carjacked by his ex-gf at knife point and forced him to take $200 out of his bank`s ATM and give it to her. He called the police after she let him go, They didn`t take him seriously and only questioned her for 5 minutes. She was never arrested.

"so just to clarify, this all started because the girls were jay walking with out IDs in front of a school? how did it escalate to this?"

I live in the area and it`s all over the news here. Apparently, the high school in the area asked the cop to come down to monitor the area because they were having problems with students walking in the street. When he saw the girls walking, he stopped them to cite them for jaywalking (which, admittedly, is a pretty stupid law), but the girl in the black shirt wouldn`t talk with him and tried to leave. When the police officer tried to corral her back to his car, that`s when things started escalating.

I honestly think the cop was in the right here, and that he could have used way more force than he did to subdue her. The only reason people are even raising issue is because it was two girls. If that was two young men, this wouldn`t even be an issue. Apparently it`s only okay to fight a cop if you have a vagina. /:

ok, read up about it. and then watched the video some more. I think I would feel pretty upset about being confronted about the j-walking thing, only because I see so many people doing it. but I was not having a brawl with a police officer. there was probably a rational way to deal with it, but the punch in the face did not have to happen. police are trained with take down techs. the problem is that he was by himself with two non-complacent teens. someone mentioned that having two police officers would have helped, I agree, and would have hoped that a situation like this would have been avoided.

Ok. CodeJockey:
1) If the cop "escalated" it into a physical altercation, then the black woman`s preceding violence was what, expressing free speech?

2) The cop didn`t punch her because she crossed the street illegally or didn`t have ID.

He was trying to make an arrest and some stupid girl picks a fight with him and she pushes him hard. So he hit her. And he didn`t hit her hard btw it looks like she pulled away so he hardly got her. She deserved it, hes a police officer just do what he says and you will be treated fairly. The poor guy is just trying to do his job and he is getting swore at, hit and pushed.
Good job to those people who were holding pink top girl off him while he attempted to arrest the loud abusive one.

So, you`re saying that the escalation into physical altercation over
J-Walking in front of a school
is a textbook example in exemplary application of police force?

It was j-walking and no ID, by the way.

Somewhere, there is a person who can tell where your car has been just by looking at the insects and pollen stuck to the grill.
He could find your kid even if he had fallen down a well then, moved behind two brick walls.
He is working a press in steel mill making so-so parts and he could stand to change places with this ass-wipe who would totally kick ass at making parts to the exact specification.

No j-walking instance is worth more than a warning. Find your neighbor the cop and ask him.

You know, I find it funny that you`re one of the FEW people in here who are actually under the delusion that the cop was in the wrong.

In fact, I think I`ve even seen a few of the people who are normally anti-police in here supporting his decision.

In conclusion: You`re just being a pissy little bitch.

Let me guess, you`re one of those people who keeps getting arrested for stupid sh*t, like possession of marijuana or something, because you refuse to learn a lesson from your past arrests. And you`re going to keep getting arrested. For the same stupid sh*t.

In other words, UNDUE RESENTMENT.

Not underage. The one he punched was actually 19.

And to all those saying tazer... You haven`t been tazed, obviously. Tazing is MUCH more painful than a punch to the face, and can cause many, MANY more problems if the person has a weak heart, etc., or falls and hits their head, breaks leg, etc.

[quote]because I`ve been arrested, and the cops weren`t allowed to lay hand on me, they had to wait on a female cop to come assist[/quote]
Which is BULLSH*T. Seriously, because you have tits a male cop isn`t allowed to do his job?

FFS, I hate moments like this, when you realize that women only want equality when it benefits them...

You`re BEING ARRESTED. You`re not SUPPOSED to be "comfortable." But you do what the cop says and you can avoid having his "hands all over you," as you so put it, which is kinda necessary when restraining someone...

madest - that story is ridiculous! I`m fairly confident you cannot be charged with making audio recordings in a public setting, where there is no expectation of privacy. This wasn`t a private encounter.

The Maryland statute under which he is charged defines "oral communication" as "any conversation or words spoken to or by any person in private conversation."

Is a conversation in the street with a police officer "private?" Hmmm, thats tricky, but I suspect not...

"@splurbyburbl: that`s compeltly uncalled for, I have every right to say that I would be uncomfortable, you don`t know how I would feel, and I didn`t say it was sexual harassment, I said it would be uncomfortable. In my FIRST comment I mentioned sexual harassment, because I`ve been arrested, and the cops weren`t allowed to lay hand on me, they had to wait on a female cop to come assist, so based on my personal experience, yeah he would be open to such accusation."

Were you resisting arrest? Perhaps they felt they could wait on a female cop to show because the suspect (you) was not resisting and there was no immediate potential for danger, i.e. a mounting crowd of young, inner city people clearly not on the police side. What were the extenuating circumstances? Or do you judge every single issue based on your personal experience?

Oh wait, you`re done with my "asinine" comments that I vomit everywhere. I almost forgot.

"On an earlier post you suggested the cop arrest the people filming and suggested the ACLU should be disbanded. Please tell me you were kidding."

I was being a little morbidly sarcastic. But I cannot deny that the ACLU more often than not befuddles and confounds me. Sometimes I hear of something they say or do and think, `glad to know someone is sticking up for the little guys`. Then other times they seem to be grossly on the wrong side of issues. But, you`re right in saying that to take away some rights, we run the risk of taking away all rights. It`s a scary thought.

[quote]where was his taser? its clear that the girls were unruly but i really dont think cops have any right to punch someone. in all the episodes of cops that i have watched i have never seen a cop punch anyone, let alone an underage GIRL. not only that, but the cop didnt have anything better to do then stop someone from jaywalking, really? what if the cop was a black guy and punched a 17 year old white girl? cmon its clearly not right either way![/quote]

What if the cop was a woman and she punched a young man who came at her while she was trying to arrest another man?

cmon its clearly not right either way! (sic).

Sexual equality is not a pick `n` mix thing. You either want it or you don`t. I do. Try judging this incident in terms of people, not sex or skin colour.

Is there anyone who *wouldn`t* be uncomfortable in that situation? I would be. Of course, I`m just a man, so I don`t count. It`s only women who are worthy of special treatment, obviously.

I suppose he could have tasered her and kept tasering her until a female copper arrived. That way he wouldn`t have had to touch her. Or maybe we should only allow women in the police force.

for anyone who`s all like "JAYWALKING?!?!? WTF???"

if you`ve ever lived in or around a ghetto area jay walkers are a HUGE problem. they`ll just walk right in front of your car and look at you like "what are you going to do"

I hit one with my front right fender because he thought i wouldn`t.

and good job to that office, imagine how different it would be if she went for his gun. and both had prior records, both had assault charges, one of them assault on a police officer.

see any patterns forming?

Right. Another group that gets a bad rap and is easy to vilify. This is the local story that the ACLU is taking on. It seems to me the only times these things are objected to is when someone did something wrong.

Bitch deserved it. Shut up, take the ticket, and walk away. If you really feel that the cop was being an non-nice individual, then you can go to court and contest the ticket. Maybe you`ll get out of it and maybe you won`t. That`s life. Don`t break the damn law all the time, and maybe the cops won`t bother you so much.

But for god`s sake, whatever you do, don`t drating slap and grab at the damn cop! There`s standing up for your rights and then there`s being a drating moron. There are crooked, non-nice individual cops out there, but a lot of them are just trying to do their job and it`s nothing personal until you make it personal. They can and WILL use force if you make them think they need to.

OK, rant over :-) I hope the cop doesn`t get in any kind of trouble over this though. One of the few police punching videos where it looks like he was not at fault.

On an earlier post you suggested the cop arrest the people filming and suggested the ACLU should be disbanded. Please tell me you were kidding. Besides losing great IAB debate fodder the loss of our right to film public events in public places would be crippling to our rights as a whole. Police have cameras in their cars to film us, speeding and redlight cameras to ticket us and that`s not enough. They are actively attempting to restrict our taping rights. This video exonerates the police officer. Justice will prevail. But remember the ACLU is very important to the rights of all Americans.

Regardless of sex and race.. if that was a white guy resisting arrest other white people would help the cop, not the people getting arrested. Just sayin`

That cop did the right thing... it is not about race, to everyone but black people. He was in a position where his choices were to forget it and leave or take control. When you resist arrest this happens... especially in a group of people. BUT the black community will scream racist stuff and the cop will be fired. I say kill em all. Good job, officer.

The minute you resist arrest which is exactly what happened here you are going to be subject to a beating from the officer your resisting. Once you resist they can pretty much do what ever it takes to get the cuffs on you. Not only that but the girl he hit stepped in while he was trying to detain the other girl so she really asked for it.

He could have tazed her which I am sure would have been worse than getting hit he really didn`t put any power behind that tap he gave her or she would have been down. He could have used pepper spray or even pulled his gun and took control that way. He just chose to be ol`skool and punch her in the face like she deserved :)

In my FIRST comment I mentioned sexual harassment, because I`ve been arrested, and the cops weren`t allowed to lay hand on me, they had to wait on a female cop to come assist, so based on my personal experience, yeah he would be open to such accusation.

"Officer Walsh saw a male pedestrian jaywalk ... and he stopped him. Then while [Walsh"> was talking to this male, he saw four females jaywalk at the same location as the first pedestrian. When the officer asked the females to come over to his car, they were `verbally antagonistic` towards the police officer and one female started to walk away. He could not get her to put her hands on the car as she kept breaking free of his grip. He then tried to handcuff her, and that is when her friend intervened and put her hands on the officer`s arm. According to the officer he thought that meant she was going to help her friend escape, so he pushed her back and when she came at him that is when he punched her."

I would also bet money, judging from this post that you are also a very dangerous girl as well... someone I would call a "career ender" Someone who feels she can be out of control, but the moment an authority figure tries to subdue you... to you it`s automatically sexual harrassment. I suppose he was supposed to not touch her at all, ask politely for her to stay put while a female cop arrives?

That easy huh? Just like that? Quit being an idiot... seems to me he was well trained.

1. He had to watch for threats of mob justice (the crowd building around him)
2. He had keep track of the gun on his hip; from people trying to sneak up behind him. i.e. the dumb black bitch in pink shirt.
3. He had to wrestle with another dumb black bitch who was resisting arrest and yelling constantly.
4. All the while trying to put handcuffs on her while resisting.

Chick deserved to get popped. Don`t resist and it would have been fine, he can do what he has to to get them under control. It might have looked like he couldn`t handle her, but he probably didn`t want to take her down and start a small riot with all those bystanders around and no help. Most officers are polite as long as you are. Be a gentleman or a lady and be treated as such. Don`t be a prick and pull the "their black, this cop is white, he must be a racist" card. He most likely just wanted to detain one in his car for a few minutes to get control and start getting the story on what ever was happening. Point is, don`t touch cops, don`t be an ass, they deal with enough drats all day anyway, and do what they say.

I see this as not only a righteous act on the cops part, but also a response to the fact not only was he trying to subdue the person in question but trying to protect himself and watch his back at the same time with the crowd building by the second. Its easy for all of us to say, well "I would have done this differently." Be a Cop for a day and try and tell me that again.

It is if you DISMISSIVELY ATTEMPT TO WALK AWAY WHILE THE COP COMMANDS YOU AND YOUR FOUR JAYWALKING FRIENDS TO STAND BY HIS CAR. That is what happened, this girl was trying to just leave before the cop could issue the citation.

THAT is an offense one can be arrested for.

I`m surprised that, after reading comments here and elsewhere about this video, so many people seem to think it would have been BETTER to tazer her.

A tazer is more painful than a punch to the face, and more likely to cause serious injury as the person falls down, possibly hitting their head, not to mention unknown health problems that could be exacerbated by being tazed.

I have a prediction - nothing bad will happen to the cop once this all blows over. Yes, he`ll be "re-trained" and temporarily "reassigned," but that will be the end. Oh, the Department may be sued for a civil rights violation, but they will win.

You can`t really go around doing that, so he`ll get told off. But practically, if she was interfering with someone getting nicked then a punch was a damn sight quicker than calling for back up. And cleaner than shooting her. If you`re getting arrested, you`re getting arrested. Get it over with if you`re innocent. And the cop isn`t going to make his day a lot longer by arresting her mate for fun so she probably brought it on herself.

Yay police.

I don`t see why the color of their skin makes any difference in what this cop did. It could have been a 17 yr old white girl, or a 55 yr old white man. If either scenario played out and they did what these girls did, they would have gotten the same thing. If parents would teach their children that the police are there to protect and serve. You start out with a bad attitude with the police its just going to get worse, why do you think they boys didn`t jump in the middle? they didn`t want to go to jail.

Cop was right - might have sent for back-up, but not have it arrive yet. I`m a feminist - equal opportunity for getting hit doing something abysmally stupid i.e. not doing what the man in the uniform, with the gun told you to do. Officer could have gotten them down and restrained if he was the kind of person some people are making him out to be - he showed admirable restraint. Stupid girls - maybe he should of just let them continue jaywalking - thinned out the stupid humans that way. Darwin`s survival of the fittest , and all that.

I watched them do a report on this on the news- Can`t remember which station. They were throwing a huge poo storm over it. The officer is most likely going to be reprimanded now because it was caught on camera and the public is throwing a huge fit over it. The fact of the matter is that the cop was stressed out because both women were committing battery and teaming up on him, and then as you can see right before the punch, the girl in the pink shirt comes in from the side and shoves him back. Surprised and threatened, the officer slugs her right in the face. I`d say not only was the officer in the right because he felt threatened, but I`d go so far as to say it was justified. It wasn`t lethal force, it was the right amount to defuse the situation before it got out of hand.

I would have rather seen her flop around like a fish with a taser attached at the end. People are always to quick with the camera phones, seems they think about that 15 minutes of fame it could get them. I`m not a old fart but I have respect for the police and what they do. Seems some of the younger generations think its okay to buck up to the police. If they would have kept they mouths shut and threw in a few yes sirs, they could have just gotten a ticket for jay walking.

Totally deserved it. One woman is fighting the cops, other lady starts interfering with the cop, clearly intending to prevent an arrest. Both are guilty of a battery on a police officer.

This funny thing is this recording will VINDICATE the officer`s actions. He was trying to restrain an unruly person, and a second person intervenes physically.

I hate dumbass people who automatically conclude cops are in the wrong, like all these people surrounding him.

And for all of you saying "He didn`t have to hit her," I don`t think you are giving the cop enough respect for handling the situation with the least amount of force possible.

"Granted, they were resisting arrest, but you would think that the pig could have overpowered her without punching her in the face.
That`s ridiculous."

You know, the chick he punched looked like she was bigger than him. I`m just saying, here is a cop surrounded by hostile people, ALONE, trying to detain an unruly person, and people are coming up behind him - where he KEEPS HIS GUN. He COULD have tazzed her.

For people who say "its only J-walking," it was only that until she resisted detention.

He was entirely in the right, and frankly did just what he should have.

the best thing anyone could do if a cop wants to detain you is to let him, dont fight back or resist just let him cuff you. if you are getting taken jail just keep your mouth shut and go with it; it will go a lot smother if you do.

If I was a policeman and two women were ignoring me trying to arrest them and pushing me away, I think I`d be justified in fly-kicking them both in the womb with a 2 kick combo. They deserved more than that one little punch, should have slammed her to the ground, if you don`t agree with being arrested tell it to your lawyer, don`t resist.

I can see how she would want to resist arrest. It`s someone she doesn`t know, holding her close, and touching her, making her turn around. I can see how that would be uncomfortable.

BUT, she should have just let him do his job. I`m with both sides on this one.

I normally hate these types of videos and rage at the cops.

But........he was standing in what appears to be a very hostile situation had he not been a cop. Say what you want, hes a whitey around a ton of african americans who were watching. He was trying to detain one person, when another flapped her arms at him. How is he supposed to know there was no intent to kill?

He established dominance in the situation at hand, if he hadn`t, im sure hed have been jumped.

Jaywalking may be a minor offense (assuming the comments are correct).

However, this clip starts with the one girl blatantly resisting arrest. Then the other girl assaults an officer and obstructs him in his duties.

At this point, it really doesn`t matter what the first girl did, as resisting is a completely separate charge from her initial offense. In fact, I wouldn`t be surprised if they simply drop the initial charge, given that this is much more serious.

In Washington, resisting has an average fine of $500, with average jail time of 30 days. I don`t think she really fought back enough to get felony resisting, but that has maximum fine and jail time of $1000 and 1 year, respectively.

The girl in pink would likely face harsher fines if arrested as well.

In fact, this video is simply proof that both are guilty, while showing the officer had reasonable justification for the assault.

i will never understand why people resist arrest.

first of all, depending on the crime you committed resisting arrest will only increase the amount of crimes you commit and how long you might be put away for

second, resisting arrest only increases the chance of violence

third, its stupid because the cop is most likely going to win in the end anyway

fourth, it makes you and the officer look bad but more so yourself look bad or just plain crazy

need i continue?

now for the video, i dont know if the officer needed to punch the girl in the face, he has a lot of tools that he could use for angry citizens and also
where is his backup, shouldnt cops always call for backup when the situation gets a little out of hand? but physical violence really shouldnt have been used, it wouldnt have provoked these other people as much as it did by using it. im not sure what to think about the situation.

I don`t agree with cops assaulting anyone, but legally he`s allowed to do what`s deemed necessary to control a situation. If that entails swinging some blows, then it`s all fair game according to the supreme court. He`ll probably still be suspended, with pay, until it blows over.

Seriously? STFU.

Most of the time, they do suffer the consequences. In fact, they have a higher chance of being caught and punished than the rest of the population, with everyone breathing down their throat looking for a chance to call them out for something.

The only reason any incident involving a cop is overblown is because people are always looking for a new reason to hate any authority figure that holds them accountable for their own actions.

Most cops have to walk on their tip-toes to avoid being accused of sexual assault for touching a suspects breasts in the attempt to restrain her, or some other stupid thing.

You hated your parents as a teenager, right? Same idea. You nit-picked whenever they did something wrong, and blew it completely out of proportion like they`re supposed to be perfect.

Here`s a hint: They`re humans too. They make mistakes.

"Splurbyburble: you`ve never done anything illegal EVER? even jaywalking? how would you like it if a cop punched your face because you resisted a jaywalking ticket- NOT an arrestable offence btw... so she wasn`t resisting arrenst until later on in the video."

LOL I knew I`d get some ditsy remark from you. There`s always one...

Of course I`ve done simple, minute things that were illegal, like speeding. And when I got a speeding ticket, he stopped me, I was polite and responsible about it, he wrote the ticket, a month later I paid it and my insurance went up a little. End of story.

Now, had I been yelling at him, being confrontational and uncooperative such as this black female was doing about a simple matter, I would have been lucky to be only punched in the face.

You mistake the causality of the situation. She didn`t get punched BECAUSE of jaywalking... she got punched BECAUSE of assault. 18-29 years old... really??

Walsh stopped and ordered a 17-year-old girl to stop as she walked away from him. When she didn`t, he tried to pull her back to the scene, and the jaywalking arrest took a violent turn.

Alllllso

The incident happened at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South near the arterial`s intersection with Rainier Avenue South, in the vicinity of Franklin High School.

A Seattle transportation department plan released in 2006 called for Seattle police pedestrian-safety patrols to target jaywalking, particularly near Franklin High and north of South McClellan Street by the Lowe`s hardware store.

Between 2002 and 2006 more jaywalkers were hit by vehicles on Rainier Avenue South than in any other corridor in the city.

During that period, 61 pedestrians were struck while jaywalking on Rainier Avenue South

Not where you are, maybe, but it is in that area, and for very good reason.

The article says that there were over 126 pedestrian related incidents in the area between 2006 and 2008, and some 23 on that road alone. That may not seem like a lot, but it is when the only reason is pure stupidity.

It`s considered an arrest-able offence in that area.

He was already dealing with trying to restrain one person resisting, then another comes up and starts shoving him. So now he`s supposed to take a hand away from the situation (which would leave himself open to all sorts of other trouble in a crowd like that) to grab his mace?

I like how 4/5 of the time the police are in the right, but people don`t want to admit that because they don`t want to be held accountable for their own stupid actions.

Admittedly, he could have handled it better. He could have called for back-up, since there were seven or eight of them and one of him.

But he was in the right. People need to learn that things go a HELL of a lot smoother when you just be polite and comply. Not only that, but they go faster too.

Spoken like a typical female. If you can`t put your big girl panties on and act like a law abiding citizen then you`re going to play some real grown up games when you aren`t ready for it. In this case, she resisted arrest and attacked a police officer. He was completely justified in putting his hands on her in whatever manner consistent with controlling the suspect and the situation. I think the video showed this conclusively.

Recap: A bunch of black, inner-city yahoo`s feeling "put-down" by "the man" think the cop is not justified to use reasonable force when suspects attack him and resist arrest. Sounds about right. Way to go inner-city black boys and girls, you just set back your "race" a few years.

As for all the idiots who filmed the cop in hopes of getting evidence against the police officer, I think they should also be arrested, just because those kind of people are always up to no good.
