Cop Punches Woman, Video Goes Viral

This YouTube video, of a Seattle, WA cop punching a woman in the face has gone viral, an example of what police shouldn't do if someone's around, period. Nowadays just about everyone has a cell phone that can record video, after all.

It turns out that four women were jaywalking, and the officer had them come over. Things escalated, and he was trying to handcuff the first woman (a 19-year-old) when the second one, a 17-year-old, came over. It is clear from the video that the 17-year-old pushed the officer (as pictured above). At that point, the officer punches the 17-year-old in the face.

Get your TASER C2 Gold Package Today!In a situation where he is clearly outnumbered, it's difficult to fault the officer. At which point, one must ask, did the second woman feel it was OK to assault the officer, and why didn't the first one just cooperate?

Undoubtedly, there's going to be arguments over the incident, and also undoubtedly, there will be "race" brought into the picture. The Seattle police have responded to the incident, and issued this statement.
"You obviously have to take into context everything that occurred from the point that the officer did make contact with the individuals until the situation ended. As I said before, we have some concerns about the tactics the officer used and employed at the time. Again, we did feel what occurred did deserve a review by the Office of Professional Accountability."
Watch the video, and decide for yourself.

Good for him. It is way past time that our police force steps up to all this resisting nonsense. They are here to protect and serve, not to put up with people who refuse to respect them.

Just by going on what the video shows I see nothing wrong. The officer was trying to detain or arrest the one girl when the other comes along and gets her freind away from the officer and then she pushes him. Maybe he could have handled it in a different way because she is a female but why should he have to. She interfered with his job and pushed him.

Seems like PD would have better thing to do than stopping four women for jaywalking.
But if your a weak officer, who can't handle tougher crimes, then you probably feel even better arresting and punching women.
Six blocks down there are people selling crack on the street.

I'm Canadian so maybe I've been brought up different. When I see a "man"? punch a woman I would probably give this creep in uniform a good beating. My father was a cop for 27 yrs. and he would have beat this sorry excuse for a peace officer. Come to Canada shithead try that here we are still a free country.

Paul said...

I think she should feel quite licky she still has teeth. The officer was in the right as she was interfering. She also clearly touched the officer. The "Are you serious! Are you Serious!" Idiot that was filming this should "Seriously" recieve a nice fine himself for his interference to send a clear message that LAW is serious!

If it were me I would have reacted the same way. It looked like she was going for his face. If you are told to turn around so you can be cuffed, why get belligerent? He was not harming her but trying to arrest her so why would her friend attack the cop?

Jeff said...

The cop should not have hit her! He could have used mace, take down, or restraint.

Is he a man? A real man would have never punched a woman!

Stackan said...

What do people expect? Treat the police with respect, you'd get respect in return. If you're upset about the stop for jaywalking, file a complaint at the precinct. If you think you can get out of the situation by escalating violence, you think that the police will say 'oh my, this person really doesn't want to be arrested- I better let him(her) go' wouldn't EVERY criminal do the same? IT'S THE POLICE'S JOB TO SUBDUE VIOLENT CRIMINALS! THEY CARRY WEAPONS!! IT'S AGAINST THE LAW TO BATTER A POLICE OFFICER! Maybe the jaywalking thing is a bit mickeymouse, but just judging from what I watched on video- I think the girls were in the wrong, and have no problem with the officer's conduct.

chris said...

In response to Jeff; I didn`t see a real woman in the altercation,only out of control violent girls. It is a sad sign of the times when the future of our country act as if the rules don`t apply to them.Women have been screaming equal rights this & equal rights that.Well the officer treated her the same way he would have treated any male subject in the same situation.Compliance,compliance compliance

Dwayne said...

For all those who feel that the cop should've used mace, are you fucking stupid. Once mace is airborne everybody in the crowd, innocent passerby and the cop gets hit with a dose. Mace would not have diffused the situation. It would have pissed the reamaining mob of people off.
Second point is this. If a woman wants to put herself in a mans position and feels it's ok to assault a man, the she should be prepared to be dealt with like a man. Period.

This is justified by the police. That in a certain area recently installed a light rail line that runs up and down the middle of the road in the background. After only one week less than a year ago, someone was shot and killed by commuter train Jaywalking.

The civil Service attempted to arrest or detention of a girl, while the other comes and gets her friend of income, and then pushed him. Perhaps you should be able to deal differently because she is a woman, but because he is. He faced his work and encouraged him.

They must have done something wrong, add to whatever that was resisting arrest and assaulting an office of the law.

IRS Tax Lawyers said...

So many people complaining about the cop getting too aggressive about jaywalking. It goes both ways people. Why did the women have to start getting in to cops face over a simple jaywalking citation? Also, the guy with the camera, do you think it is a coincidence the he didn't record the event from the very beginning? He probably forgot to record the parts where the women were running their mouths and causing trouble.
