VIDEO: Campus Police Accused of Excessive Force in Professor's Arrest

An Arizona State University professor who was arrested by campus police last month is claiming self-defense. The incident was recorded on a citizen's video and released to 3-TV.

The incident started when the officer contacted the professor for obstructing the street. It quickly escalated into a physical confrontation as the officer attempted to arrest the woman.

In response, the university issued a statement saying:

ASU authorities have reviewed the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the arrest of Assistant Professor Ersula Ore and have found that the officer involved did not violate protocol and no evidence was found of racial motivation by the ASU Police Department officers involved.
 
"However, the ASU Police Department is enlisting an outside law-enforcement agency to conduct an independent review on whether excessive force was used and if there was any racial motivation by the officers involved.
 
"In addition, although no university police protocols were violated, university police are conducting a review of whether the officer involved could have avoided the confrontation that ensued.

Wow, I would have taken her down sooner, but he showed a lot of restraint. I hope she looses her job, but I doubt the liberal college jerks will do anything to her. Folks, it is really simple in 30 years in this business, I can tell you... that just do as you are told...it works out better in the long run. If you are falsely arrested then sue, but now you have criminal charges, because you are stupid and feel entitled, why? Because you work there, because everyone else does it, because your female, because your black...just do as you are told, that is all she had to do and then probably walk away. You cannot fix stupid.

Talk about the mouth that roared.
Man, does she ever shut-up?

I think she likes the officer and just wanted some floor play.

You called it Jim. What an a$$hat! Unfortunately, playing the bogus race card when guilty as sin may actually play favorably in a liberal college town.

I'm surprised he didn't shoot her.
He probably would have somehow been within his rights.

As a proud LE officer and a proud Liberal, I applaud the officer's professionallism. He should receive an commendation. Also, this video should be shown in training classes.

As for her, she should be diciplined. The gall of her "holier-than-thou" attitude displays exactly what you shouldn't do when encountered by the police. I would think better of her if she had a dime bag of marijuana.

I'm enraged by these comments. To know that people feel the way you all do is really sad. "I'm surprised he didn't shoot her." "Man does she ever shut up." What if this happened to your daughter, wife, girlfriend, mother, whom ever. I'm sure you would feel differently.
