Yet another convenient “sound byte” video which only shows the part that the cop-haters want you to see. What led up to this? I can’t believe that a cop would just assault a woman at random. I’ll guarantee that there is a progression here that is not shown or known just by watching this culminating incident.
If the cop was assaulted, he had every right to use force against the assaulter, especially one who’s fleeing (she was walking away in a crowd.) Stop with the summary Rodney-King-style verdicts until we know the whole story.
Maybe if she licked his boot he would have spared her the punch.
“Stop with the summary Rodney-King-style verdicts until we know the whole story.”
But your piece is premised on “if she assaulted him.”
You have no idea whether she did or not. So how come your summary verdict is okay and others’ summary verdicts are not??????
Are cops free of sin natures? Are they fully pure and righteous, untainted?
If the cop was assaulted, he had every right to use force against the assaulter, especially one whos fleeing (she was walking away in a crowd.) Stop with the summary Rodney-King-style verdicts until we know the whole story.
She wasn’t running and she certainly wasn’t a large woman. Why couldn’t he just grab her and slap cuffs on her? He needed to punch her first, that’s proper?
Except that she didn’t do anything - she was just there (as the video plainly shows). Do you suppose it was his training to randomly target citizens to assault?
“If the cop was assaulted, he had every right to use force against the assaulter, especially one whos fleeing (she was walking away in a crowd.) Stop with the summary Rodney-King-style verdicts until we know the whole story.”
Sorry, slowly walking away and then turning back to look at the cop doesn’t count as fleeing.
Even if she was running that would only justify tackling her. The cop has a right to defend himself. He doesn’t have the right to attack anyone.
Exactly the first reaction I had to the manipulated story. Without knowing what happened the 30 seconds before, no subsequent action or reaction can be fairly judged.
It all started with Rodney King. We never have seen the 5 minutes that led up to his deserved ass-whuping.
When, in a crowd, a liquid is tossed, it could be anything from plain water to contaminated human waste, to acid, to caustic soda, to---- silly string. Contemporary milititant activists, for the most part, have no judgement and no restraint. Perhaps they are trying hard to win the "lottery by cop." Not that they would get anything if I were on their jury.
I totally disagree. The cop absolutely assaulted this woman who was posing no threat to him. If you had done the same thing to her you’d be in jail right now and that thug-with-a-badge should be in jail, too.
“I cant believe that a cop would just assault a woman at random.”
Really? With all the video evidence over the years proving cops lie like hell and commit crimes at random, you don’t think a cop could lose his cool and punch someone?? I do, and without question.
o please...if that was the case then just hand cuff her!
I watched the video closely, more than once. She clearly did something, threw/sprayed something.
It doesn’t matter. The sucker punch was STILL police brutality. It was an excessive use of force in apprehending and arresting the woman.
Thug behavior towards citizens is unacceptable, most especially in response to immature, petty behavior. Pretty soon they start shooting dogs and busting doors down without warning... oh wait, never mind.
This “officer” should lose his job and his pension.
I don’t care what she did to him.
No man (real man) would hit a woman like that.
He is a cowardly puke. If Philly needs puke like this on their force they should just close down the city.
What a cowardly act. What a low life POS this guy is.
Probably got his rank through affirmative action.
Probably got his job the same way.
Sucker punching people is now accepted police arrest procedure? If so then shooting cops from blinds is now acceptable. Stop this now before we have concentration camps.
Even if assaulted, the proper response is a rush and tackle, by many officers at once, then cuff and confine in car. Punches are out.
Also: The fact that only one officer reacts, with so many nearby, gives lie to the conjecture that this officer was assaulted.
Inability to accept reality is a liberal characteristic.
