The Intertubz is buzzing with the "ZOMG!!! Hit punched her in the face!" story of a Seattle cop who punched a 17 year old girl in the face while he was trying to arrest her friend. Watch the video and judge for yourself.
All things considered, I'd say he showed admirable restraint. I'm relatively sure that most cops would have went up the continuum of force a lot further than this one did. I'm amazed that Miss "Get the F off of me" didn't meet Mr. Tazer or Mr. Mace.
