Cant see youtube at work so posting the link to liveleak vid: LiveLeak.com - Caught on Video: Seattle cop punches girl in face during jaywalking stop I think he was completely justified and I really cant help but LMAO every time I see it. So what are everyone's thoughts on this? Typical responses expected: Why didn't the officer take the first girl down to detain her? Answer: If he takes the combatant down while surrounded he opens himself up to other attacks He shouldn't have hit her, she is just a girl. Umm, equal rights?!? Also he's a police officer and she had no business getting involved, much less pushing him while he was fighting someone else, twice. Per his SOP he was completely within right to punch her, physical force meets physical force, also the LEO didn't have a taser due to budget cuts. Also just an FYI for all the liberals who want the police officer thrown in jail, etc, the girl ended up having quite the record for being only 17 yrs old. She beat up a 14 year old taking his money and cell phone (assault and robbery), stole a vehicle by using a screwdriver to break the ignition cap and lock (auto theft and destruction of property), shoved a sheriff's deputy who was coming to try to restrain her (assaulting an officer) and now has assaulted another officer while the officer was attempting to detain someone else. Man oh man, cannot stop laughing at the gif image... FALCON PUNCH TO THE FACE!!!
