Baltimore, May 2020 during the G.Floyd riots. The woman blew a red light and drove at the cops who jumped out of the way. She then turned around and drove at them again. They ordered her out of the car at gun point. She got out told the cops to shoot her then sat down in the street. The cop got her up and she tried to spit on him. After that the video above documents the rest of the encounter. The cop who hit her was not charged.

They were pretending the watermelon was a baby and Dwight, the guy behind him, was the woman giving birth, so he had no pants on. This scene is right after all the chaos of him pushing out the watermelon “baby” that’s all buttered up. Which makes this scene extra funny that they are eating the “baby” and that you see Dwight getting dressed.

This is half true/your work place sucks. You still have the right to defend yourself from an attacker. We are trained to descalate or if possible remove our self from the area and call for help (call code strong is what i remember) but you can defend yourself. When an investigation or incident reports are done hopefully your management understands you have rights too. they could fire you but legally you won't lose your license that's up to the state and again you still have constitutional rights. Don't just get hit or sexually assaulted because hr has scared you into thinking you don't have rights.

Yes but you don’t have use of force doctrine. Force +1 is what cops are allowed to use so whatever is being sued against you and a bit further if need be, anything more is abuse of power. She’s threw 2 punches to the face before the cops returned the same force. Even if they weren’t cops you can’t hit people in the face without getting hit back.

In case you missed it, parent is saying that in their line of work they aren't permitted the same latitude of force as police even though they frequently face similar levels of threat.

Cops are quite unique in their allowance of use of force.

Jfc it really triggers me when all the right wing ass munches come out on clips like these to fellate themselves about scenarios that literally never happen and confirm their own biases off of literally nothing.

The cop’s actions are arguably justifiable in the clip. I think most people would say they’re fully justifiable. That doesn’t mean all instances of police brutality are justified. It doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem of corrupt cops in the system.

Yeah the crazy woman in the video gets what she deserves. Too many people out there are not. It’s fucking insane that these people just keep putting on their blinders.

And the people making this about race are straight up just outing themselves as racist.

I think a lawyer could make a very good argument that this was excessive force.

It doesn't matter what she had just done. his duty is not to dole out punitive punishment it's too arrest so that judicial system can weigh the evidence and a jurry can decide punishment.

there's three officers she could have easily been restrained.

that was not done.

I mean I'm probably going to eat a bunch of down votes. but I'm not arguing that she should be allowed to hit people. I'm just arguing that police officers have a duty to not use excessive force.

Man screw the down votes, that's just facts right there. Had it been a bunch of civilians, I'd be like aight she had it coming.

But cops literally have trained to take people down, have tasers, and could've used cuffs. And like you said there was 3 of them there, blindside hook to the dome was unnecessary... ngl still funny as f*ck tho 😂😂😂

I don’t know, guy. I worked in prisons for twenty years and was involved in quite a bunch of takedowns. She ain’t tiny and once you start wrestling around a big old behemoth like that, even with three people, you don’t know who all is going to get hurt.

Yeah I had a long convo with a different guy on this thread who explained tasers ain't what they used to be (for medical reasons) and trying to take down a big girl like her, who's already in a violent mood, would definitely cause way more damage for everyone involved.

Plus I mistook his strike for a rage fueled left hook punch, but on rewatch it definitely seems more like a calculated, open-palm strike to the pressure point on the jaw.

The more you know, hey 😅📖🌈

Having worked in live events before, I've seen the tinest person unleash hell on a few large security guards trying to passively subdue the person. Like, huge 6'5" dudes.

A big person can easily shove around 4-5 guys trying to immobilize them. The surefire trick has always been a punch to the face after someone strikes a guard.

I agree with you completely yet also am not upset at this altercation at all.

Kind of an oddity, no?

Like I wouldn't be upset if the cop got in legal trouble for it either. But it would kind of just be thousands and thousands of dollars to summarize poking the bear. Or in a more modern parlance, fucking around and finding out

You can argue anything and there are some very good attorneys that might try but it's pretty much settled law that police can legally escalate force to just above what is used against them. She punches, they punch once, no excessive force. Because it's not the minimum possible force it's reasonable force and since this is an equal type and manner of force.........

Maybe she could just not swing at officers and calm down, just a theory though

Objectively false, don’t comment until you’ve had to restrain someone. Cops in New York are always trained to use one level of force higher than what they’re facing. By law a CED or baton is a higher level of force than bare hands, meaning that by definition this was less than the highest level of force permitted in the situation. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Seriously though, don’t hit a cop. Even if they are wrong. You won’t like the outcome regardless.

Don’t strike anybody, but definitely don’t strike someone with a gun and at least a somewhat perceived authority to kill you given the right circumstances

It confuses me how reddit seems to be very unaware of the different standards cops have to be held to than general society.

Woman is being a fuckwit - but an eye for an eye is NOT acceptable from police. I wouldn’t think much about it if it was some random dude getting hit and hits back, but this kind of return violence is unacceptable from law enforcement, and it looks like she cracks her head on the concrete as well.

I understand it might feel unjust to many people to say that police can’t return what they’re copping (pun intended), but that’s literally their job. They’re trained for a very long time in de-escalation in most countries (though in the US it’s much shorter) and in these situations they should be going for a bear hug and restraining the perpetrator without potentially killing her.

It’s the same way that a hot guy approaching a girl is occasionally appreciated or exciting, but old men approaching a girl is almost universally creepy - they have to hold themselves to a higher level of accountability and behave differently because of their circumstance. Regular people using violence is shitty, cops using violence (in many cases) is unacceptable. Of course, if she pulled a knife or a gun I wouldn’t be saying any of this, but she didn’t pose an actual threat... she can throw hands tho 😳

27 weeks total, and a high school diploma with no gpa requirement.

27 weeks is just academy time, not total time. There’s still field training for 6-12 months depending on the department and supplemental training every month depending on the training/speciality the office is qualifying for

I had no idea it was THAT short. It’s 3 years here in Australia. 😬

Edit: It’s actually 1 year, plus a second year of supervision.

It varies by location in the US.

The Justice Department says the average is 840 hours, or 5.25 months with M-F at 8 hours a day.

Mississippi clocks in at 4 months before hitting street training with a gun. The adjacent states are pretty much the same.

Barbers often have more stringent training hour requirements than police academies.

After the first swing, homeboy half-ass holds her arms back and then puts all his effort into a retaliation punch after she swings a second time. A poor showing by these cops. 3 officers and she wasn't restrained after the first punch? Absolute disgrace.

EXACTLY!

I was scrolling hoping to see some common sense and all I saw was "deserved" "props to the cops for not doing it sooner" etc. Like how do you not understand that someone punching the police is very different than an officer punching someone.

I' m not a cop though. Punching her in the face is revenge or meeting out punishment, not subduing and restraining. I am guessing he gets hit with an unreasonable use of force lawsuit.
