This report, which oddly enough has to come from England, shows a Seattle Police Officer pulling back and punching a teenage girl in the face after stopping her for Jaywalking. Clearly she was being uncooperative before things escalated, but did he really NEED to do that? Is this supposed to be a better alternative to the Taser?
Also notice, although it's not proof of anything in and of itself, the girls shown in the video are black - the police are white. I just wonder which side of this fight Steve King, Glenn Beck and the Tea Partiers are going to be on?
