A Seattle police officer who was recorded on a cell phone camera punching an alleged jaywalker in the face has been temporarily reassigned, a department spokesman said Wednesday. Ian Walsh has been taken off patrol duty and placed in a training unit to review police tactics, Detective Mark Jamieson said. http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/06/16/...ker/index.html

You call that a punch? He's a sissy boy.

After watching the video, I wouldn't go as far as to say his punch was actionable, but he certainly could have handled the situation a bit differently. If the goal was to gain control of the situation, he failed miserably. The woman he punched got away from him and he continued to struggle with the other woman. It definitely didn't end the situation.

Have you ever tried that? It's useless.
I've seen, with my own eyes, a cop lie in court. They will believe the cop, every time.

OMG.....a cop lie in court.......

Get real....Out of the 50 plus thousand people I helped put in jail....none were guilty....(so they said)

Never stopped a drunk driver that had more then two drinks....and half the burglars I caught inside of buildings, fell asleep and got locked in by the owners...

As we use to say years ago.......next time you need help call a hippie.....

It would sound a little offensive if you believe it was about jaywalking.

If I am ever stupid enough to advance on a shove a cop, like the woman in pink did, I hope all I get is a punch. This just isn't something you should do.

My opinion, the officer acted in self defense, did nothing wrong, and should not have any penalty.

Crooks lie. And how does that prove that cops don't?
This information is as useless as your suggestion to tell a judge when cops lie.

She obviously hasn't learned that assault is not tolerated.

I think the girl got less than she deserved. The cop was focused on restraining the first girl and then this girl approaches him and starts grabbing him. In that instant, he had no way of knowing what her intentions were or what the situation could escalate into. She could have been grabbing for his gun for all he knew. It doesn't matter that she was 17, which he couldn't possibly have known. Nor does it matter that she is a girl. Seventeen year old girls can kill just as easily as anyone else. It is never a smart idea to grab a cop, for any reason.

I'm sure there are cops who lie, just as there are people of every profession who lie. But it is stereotyping at it's worst to assume that all cops are that way. They aren't. Most cops I know are honest people just like the rest of us who are doing their best to keep our world a safer place. They face danger every day from any number of directions. Do you have any idea how many honest cops have had their lives cut short because of "troublemakers" who turned violent? They can't assume, even for a second, that any person they come in contact with is safe.

That girl should have accepted the ticket and walked away. After all, I've read numerous articles about this and not one of them says she WASN'T guilty of jaywalking. In fact, they ALL state that she was. So she did, indeed, break the law and that officer had every right to ticket her and every right to place her under arrest when she got belligerent about it. The law is the law whether you agree with it or not. He was doing his job. It was the girls who turned the situation into an unsafe, threatening situation and the officer reacted accordingly.

I know that you have seen a lot....
But have you ever been in a room when the FBI has come to question an officer.......
Oh yes cops do get investigated for wrong doing......

But then again, people in any profession lie....
My point is that there is recourse that goes beyond excuses....

And yes, even I have fired cops for lying....it does happen....
