    What do you think? This all started over jaywalking.

    IMO, they are both playing to cameras, for one. Right before the girl in pink tries to step between she glanced over at the camera. Two, in no way should she be trying to stop a cop from arresting someone. Three, as much as the girl in the black resisted, the cop showed great restraint, imo. Honestly, that punch in the face backed the girl in pink right up.

    Absolutely not acceptable. That kind of behavior is ridiculous. Never okay. I know he was being provoked, but there are much better ways of dealing with that situation. I can't speak for that particular officer, but officers around here are extensively trained in subduing or restaining someone without being aggressive or harmful. Is he being investigated?

    Me? I didn't say I agreed with it, said she backed right off.

    As the wife of a cop, I would expect my husband to NEVER strike a woman in the face the way this officer did. Or any cop, for that matter.

    Again, imo, he was quite mild with the other girl in trying to restrain, before and after the punch. Not sure why he threw that punch at all, other than perhaps some type of instinct??

    people are taking different sides on this-why I posted it.

    Would it have been better if he maced her or tazed her?

    And race has already been a big factor in discussions on this, naturally, since it was a white cop and a black girl.

    *My opinion? You just do not resist the police. You cooperate, and if you have a problem, take it up later. I found this out the hard way. So did these people. She should never have interfered with the other girl resisting, and putting her hands on the officer to remove his grip on the first girl.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb. But he should have done something else than punch her in the face.

    But I wonder how it escalated from just a jaywalking thing to this?

    God I am so glad to be out of that city.
    Why did it take that cop soooo long to restrain her? He definitely shouldn't have punched her like that. But he did not have the situation under control at all.
    The police there have been under a lot of scrutiny for their tactics. imo opinion Seattle is full of A-Holes.

    I'm thinking it took him so long because everyone that was standing around filming. It seems to me like he showed to least amount of force he could to keep some type of calm amongst the crowd. He looks to be alone on the scene. I think had he tazed her or wrestled her to the ground the crowd would have gone insane.

    No he shouldn't have done it. Punching a 17 year old girl in the face? What a big man. I'd think it was wrong if it was a guy too.

    Exactly. Just as wrong if it was a guy he punched.

    She was physically interfering in the arrest and had grabbed him and pushed him..what should he have done?

    Maced her?
    tazed her?
    tackled her?

    I think at that point they were both beyond being reasoned with. The bystanders were trying to hold her back and she kept breaking free and physically interfering and pushed the officer ..?

    Just asking.
