Seattle Police Office punches teenage girl in the face for jaywalking
I'm not taking a side. But I'm curious as to what you guys think of this. All other politics aside, and just from having the info provided from the news article and then seeing the video - what do you think?
From the criminal justice classes I've taken; I understand police officers have a certain amount of discretion. I can see, from the implications of the video, why the officer reacted the way he did and even guess what might be going through his head at the time, but is it justifiable to others? I'm not siding with the officer. I'm not siding with the girls either. Just curiosity.
