Seattle officer punches girl in face during jaywalking stop

Posted June 15th, 2010 by MuslimNonarchist

The video is behind the link. Basically two women were stopped jaywalking. Officials say one was "verbally antagonistic toward the officer," when one woman started walking away. The officer "escorted" her back, which means he grabbed her by the arm and dragged her back. Then she started yelling at him and pull away. The second girl intervened and he socked her.

Here's the funny part:

"Seattle police have not reviewed the video of the incident."

But the best part I think, is that the public surrounds the scene with camera phones.

Catching evil jaywalkers makes me feel safe.

Every time I see a cop I instantly feel at ease, because I know they're making the community a safer place. I'm so full of crap right now.

Would you rather he tazed her?

She was struggling with him. The video doesn't show what happened to start the struggle, though.

cop was right

From what i see just on the video I think the cop did the right thing. When the second chick put her arm on his she had it coming. For starters this shouldn't have happened at all. If there was a cross walk like 15 feet away like the report said then just use the cross walk and when you do break the law no matter how small just listen top the cops

good move

I've been getting a bit worried about some of the comments posted by people here. I would expect excuses for tyranny from zimboe sheeple from the general public but not from this board. Why on earth do you people think so many people around were videotaping this? If you have any idea of what black neighborhoods or what life is like in or near a ghetto is like maybe you wouldn't be so quick to post "well we don't know what the beginning of the video was like" or "the cops were in the right here." If anyone of these posters had any sense of rationality in them they would know that white cops had had it out with blacks for decades now. The only difference is that cops are after everyone now-regardless of skin color. I for one am very happy to se thse other young black people were peacefully videotapping what went one and didn't react against the cop with more violence. They are obviously seeing what can happen if they have a cell video camera present against the police state. Good job of their part!!
