I feel that he probably did not realize how hard he had pushed her, he's probably used to burly or uncontrollable prisoners, not frail, waifish women. He is still in the wrong, he did this to her. If someone accidentally hits someone with their car, they`re still responsible even if it was unintentional. This is the same situation, that cop should probably be relocated to a new facility/job entirely. Some people just should not be given that much direct power over people. And, I`ll be that guy, we have to consider sexism. This could potentially, if we knew more about the situation but not really based on this video alone, be considered a hate crime against women. Not saying that he hates women, but it could be construed that he may abuse power over women. There`s no way that little woman could possibly hurt him, so why did he feel compelled to throw her with such force?

I'm torn on this one. The office obviously used more force than needed but I don`t believe it was intentional. Should the office be reprimanded, yes. Charged with some sort of crime, not sure. The inmate should have stayed put unless instructed otherwise. the clip only shows the climax, not the build up. I have no problem calling for not nice police to commit suicide or be put down like rabid dogs by their chief when warranted but I don`t think this incident falls in that category.

@ajd121 A cop or any civil servant has a duty of care to people under their jurisdiction. They have been trained in dealing with difficult people in a restrained, competent manner. Are you seriously arguing that he shouldn't be prosecuted because he probably didn`t mean it?

They can share a jail cell. One for drunk driving and one for simple assault. As she got out of jail for the drink driving and now suing, the sentence of assault would also be done. Then the taxpayers of the little village can then pay her.
