One more time... and I’ll try to type s-l-o-w-l-y, so you can keep up.

This video didn’t capture 1/10th of what happened. What was the history with the cop and the woman? Did he give her any kind of earlier warning? What was thrown at the cop (Silly String is presumed.)? Did she have serious arrest warrants outstanding? Was she already known as being a violent offender (women tugs are some of the worst.)

The article mentions none of this, not because none of it is true, but because THE POSTER DOES NOT KNOW!

I’ll type just as slowly, just for your benefit...based on the video, on what we’ve seen, the police officer overreacted and struck a woman in the face, causing her to bleed, and then arrested her. It’s plain to most reasonable people that he could have arrested her without striking her.

Your assumptions are most revealing; you refuse to allow for the notion that a very wicked cop would *not* strike the first innocent in his path when someone sprays silly string and some of it touches the cop.

Did someone deliberately aim the silly string/water/projectile at the cop? Not necessarily. The woman was struck as well; it’s a parade, if you walk past people spraying silly string, etc about, you will likely get sprayed.

Someone who refuses to conceive or admit that a person, by virtue of their occupation, is incapable of engaging in wickedness, by default is *worshiping* members of that occupation.

Punching someone for the offense of being sprayed with silly string / water is way out of line for anyone other than a government worshiper.

Not one thing you mentioned matters about the officer. He is a presumably trained peace officer under color of authority. Punching or slamming a suspect in the face while not under eminent threat is NOT part of their training. Add to the fact that the officer had a least 6 other officers within a couple of yards and his actions become even more stupid. And please, don’t lecture me about what I know/don’t know. I have worked with hundreds of peace officers and that action is not part of their training especially with back-up that close. One more side note, my sibling is a 20 year PO and when presented with the video agreed a lawsuit against said officer is probably in order. Called him a idiot. I agree.

Cop juiced up on steriods demanded sex from her and she refused. Happy now?
