Not sure what being a registered nurse has to do with it.

The local news featured this on last nights news cast.
She is in really bad shape.
The video is amazing, they just beat the crap outa her, and that “high five” after they throw her in the back of their car.
Truly disgusting treatment.

“Officials told the Los Angeles Times that Jordan had ignored the officers’ orders to stay in her car...”

Told to stay in her car, she instead gets out of her vehicle — and the cops do not know what to expect, so they go on the offensive and throw her to the ground.

I don’t feel sorry for her; she behaved stupidly.

Jordan had ignored the officers' orders to stay in her car and began arguing with them . . .

She's lucky they didn't shoot her. Not only did she fail to heed a lawful order of the King's officers, she showed blatant disrespect by arguing with them. Her cell phone might have been a disguised firearm.

Furthermore, she is plainly a member of an inferior race. < / sarcasm >

Half right. She got out of the car[dumb].

They restrained her, put her in handcuffs. Then prior to putting her into the police car, slammed her into the pavement.

End of the story. Cops have to deal with human debris all the time while putting their lives on the line. They have little patience for people disobeying express orders.

F these animals. Body slamming a 5’4” woman is such a manly thing to do, even slamming her the 2nd time while handcuffed.. yea real classy. I don’t give a crap if she got out of her car, there’s no need to gorilla stomp someone into the ground and then high-five about it. I hope she gets paid big time for this brutality.

She deserved to be arrested and, perhaps, the first throw to the ground for the cuffs might have been required. It was a little harsh but nothing a warning wouldn’t have been enough for.

The second time, after she was handcuffed and probably said something the cops took offense to, was completely unjustified. He body slammed her while handcuffed face first into the pavement while on top of her, that should cost him his job as a minimum IMNSHO.

I haven’t seen the video but it doesn’t matter. You can’t hear what she is saying to the cops.

LAPD cops have it tough. We had a family friend who worked for LAPD, and another who worked for the Sheriffs office. (This was back in the early 1960s). Both men said that every day they went to work could be their last day alive.

“Not sure what being a registered nurse has to do with it.”

Perhaps an emergency call on her cell phone about a patient in dire need? Needs to get to the emergency room ASAP?

I'm OK with the cops actions up until the last phrase. There's no excuse for body slamming a female who is already restrained on to the pavement.

My daughter worked in a juvenile detention facility with kids already convicted of crimes. She would have been fired on the spot for acting in this manner.

The next time the cops pull you over, get out of your car and rush them while yelling, then see what happens.

I guarantee you won’t like it but the cops are protecting themselves.

First, she isn’t black and their union isn’t Republican, therefore no need for DOJ interest.

Second, it looks like she got a free lesson in anger management. When we abdicate personal responsibility and require the police to solve all our problems it’s hard for them not to see themselves as society’s problem solvers.

Maybe we should look at what powers we choose to give the police in controlling our lives.

"Cops Big Brother's Thugs have to deal with human debris all the time while putting their lives on the line. They have little patience for people disobeying express orders."

I edited that for you.

I have seen videos online of swarms of officers approaching someone. One hollers, "GET ON THE GROUND!" One of the other officers hollers, "GET YOUR HANDS ON THE CAR!"

What is one supposed to do?

A woman with a cell phone is truly dangerous and unpredictable and should always be body slammed or shot or both.

It sort of reflects the character and personality of the victim. Not you typical street hood, not that even a typical street hood shold be treated this way.

And the police chief has “serious concerns” and has assigned these d****e bags to DESK duty???

They should be arrested and thrown into jail.

And I hope she ALSO files a civil suit against them personally and it ruins their lives forever.

There is NOTHING WORSE than a person with public power and public authority who uses their position to abuse citizens.

Like two cops who simultaneously give contradictory orders in a parking lot and shoot the victim for disobeying one of them, it did not matter which one.

If you are a Kennedy and a Congressman, drunk and high on pills 3:00 AM in the morning and drive your car into an anti terrorist concrete barrier on the Capital Building Steps, you get pulled out of your car and a police supervisor recognizes you and tells the arresting officers stand down and the supervisor will take the drunk/high Congressman home with no arrest or charges. See the difference? One percent is too big to fail and too big to jail. People like us are another matter and cops practice this all the time. Cops have become the protector of rich and powerful and revenue agents for local gov. Fines in CA are hefty and more and more financially strapped drivers will react. It is a matter of time a traffic stop will spark a riot in CA.

Yeah, the handcuffed lad in a sundress was gonna kill those two cops.

Wake up. Quit trying to defend the indefensible.

HeIt won't cost him his job though he probably won't be rewarded with a paid vacation for it as he would have had he shot her to death. The lesson here is that every traffic stop should end quickly in a shooting of the driver so that the overworked officers can enjoy much deserved paid vacations.

Someone has no business being a cop if words are enough to provoke an attack. Unless, of course, all criminals who are arrested these days are polite and don't say anything inflammatory.

It’s okay. Hollywood movies and the TV prove that women are taller and stronger than any ol’ man. Women are dangerous and they can take it.

Average American height:
Men 5’ 9.6”
Women 5’ 4.3”
Movies: The reverse!

I saw the video

In the sequence 1:20 - 1:26, what I see is the the cop shifting his left foot well to the left, a move I interpreted as his attempt to gain leverage to pull her off balance, and then slam her to the ground.

If he had been trying to stop her fall, or was caught off balance and fell with her, the footwork would have been different. The body-slam cop needs to be fired immediately.

I believe that those are referred to as details. Kind of like her age and motherhood status, which are also mentioned in the story, also having nothing to do with what happened.

HAlf right, watch the video. She got out and got aggressive, and when they tried to cuff her to stop her from getting back to her car, it all went to the ground from her resisting.
Later, when in cuffs, she started struggling again as they were placing her in the cop car and it all went to the ground again, the cop too.

I guess you missed the 2nd takedown, considerably harder than the first, while she was handcuffed. Or maybe you didn’t miss it at all and don’t care what cops to handcuffed women.

Obviously you’ve never been married...LOL

As public servans, it looked like they carried it little too far but you can tell she was being belligerent by the video. Most nurses are “officer friendly” and don’t act like that. Maybe she had something else going on in her life and that was the last straw. You can never tell but I’m guessing she probably wasn’t too friendly when pulled over initially...;)

I, like any Freeper with a grain of sense, express disapproval of abuse of citizens by police.

You apparently do not possess the intellect necessary to discern when that is happening right before your eyes.

Try limiting your comments to intelligent ones. Have a nice day. ;-)

Well dimbulb, i must have missed the 9/11/2001 happening in LA. And even then, the sum of the conversation would have been come to the hospital.
And in the real world, those calls are rarely even made in events such as 9/11. Medical people hear those events and and head straight in. Or they might get a mass text informing them of a mass casualty situation emergency recall.

Get serious.
