    A cop needs reasonable cause. I think JayWalking is pretty slim, but it`s reasonable cause to stop a person. She should have shown her ID and not fought the cops.

    He simply asks for her ID. She decides to be disrespectful to him. No doubt the race card, the feminist card and any other card the female lawyer can think of will be used.

    She`s an arrogant self-important liberal @$$hole who got exactly what she deserved. I hope she get convicted of the felony and is sent to prison. More than likely, though, she`ll get a goddamned OJ jury and get off.

    "Me, me, me, respect me, blah, blah". Seems about the same as the old "don`t you know who I am" celebrity cliche. Nothing more than an overeducated idiot demanding she be treated differently than anybody else.

    "she`s a very intelligent woman, she`s very educated...and the reality is her life`s work is in cultural studies" so therefore she`s above the law... gotcha.

    It`s the law to provide ID? Hell no. I`m not saying she wasn`t being self righteous and self entitled, but if a cop asked me for my ID, I`d better be driving because my licence to drive is the only one I`m showing him. You should not ever need to carry ID with you just to walk down (or on) the street.

    All`s I see is a cop needlessly escalating a rather minor infraction for a reason NOT caught on tape.

    Since when did people have to carry ID? Is walking in the road an offence? If she is not required to show ID, then he is out of line. More to the point, would he have behaved exactly like this had she been grey haired and white? I am pretty sure not..

    It`s Arizona. I used to live just down the road from ASU. Racism runs rampant there. He didn`t have any right to ask for her ID, or use the force he used, regardless of whether she was resisting.

    CaptKangaroo, I see you`re from southern US, possibly explains what you have decided happened.
    You don`t think it could have started all amiable, the cop asking her why she was walking in the road, her responding with the chip on her shoulder. Could work both ways.

    @ madduck - if the cop is in the wrong then there are ways to handle that... and it`s not by kicking him in the shin.

    And for the record, walking in the road, or crossing other than in a designated cross walk or at a corner is against code. So he has a right to stop her. Asking for id, well if he`s going to ticket her for Jaywalking then yes he can ask for it.

    This is about her response. Even if the cop were wrong it does not make her "don`t disrespece ME" mentality right.

    @aliyhg1979: Thanks for the info! It makes a HUGE difference, IMHO.
    But if she was walking down the middle of the street? (I mean a long ways, eh?) The Police have every reason to "make contact" and legally ask for ID.

    Sounds like the cop "calmed down" for a while there, but she didn`t.

    she was out of line never resist the police. they have the gun and the clubs, handcuffs etc. and the rule of law behind them. I don`t know about the "have to show ID" I believe the Supreme Court has ruled against this you cant lie to them about who you are, I belive this is true, any one knows different please speak up

    i know it can go two ways, but PO`s can get very rough for no real reason- many years ago I got pounced on and shoved into a telegraph pole while walking home. Scared the crap out of me, and I thought I was being attacked. Turned out they thought I was a young bloke they were looking for- and they had me tightly before they spoke. I wasn`t hurt- but badly shaken- but the look on their faces was quite funny when they revealed a middle aged woman not a young thug. Could have gone wrong though..

    I find it distressing that the majority of the comments are negative to the woman. What`s up? Are you people a bunch of cops in here? Thank you CaptKangaroo, you are precisely correct, sir. Simple case of Cops out of control. Watch the video. Can you see the construction on the right side of the road? Can you see the other two ladies walking in the street to get around said construction? The reporter said "walking in traffic" she said the cop said that. How much traffic can you count in this video? Any cars? Anything, except this pooty cop walking all over the rights of this woman defending herself? She didn`t start this, he did! Respect begets respect. Violence begets violence. If you man-handle me, I`m going to fight back. I don`t blame her for her actions. Cops are out of control in this country and have been for quite some time. Go to You will be sickened by what you see. I don`t understand why so many are against her.
