Seattle Cop Punches Woman in FacePosted on Jun 15, 2010
I say the woman got what she deserved. You don't physically assault a police officer, let alone when he's in the middle of making an arrest and attempting to put handcuffs on another person. The woman broke the law and got what she had coming, period. I would have tazed both of them if it was me.
According to the a Seattle Times article police training includes the use of a punch in certain situations. The incident began when four women jaywalked in front of the officer. He called them over regarding they illegal crossing of the street when voices and tensions escalated.
If the women would have cooperated with the policeman they may have received a verbal warning or at worst a citation. Instead they face criminal charges. DUMB!!
My 2 cents,
