So what is the problem?

Robert @ 8/9/2012 7:08 PM

And.....

Irrational violent behavior = Terry frisk
Refusing to sign a citation in Ohio = M4
Resisting arrest = M2
I don't see an issue.

Central OH cop @ 8/9/2012 11:29 PM

And... you can throw in Obstructing Official business = M2

Well, the Good Citizen didn't want to go along with the program. It is nice to see a Chief out there dealing with the crap we do everyday on the street. I think having supervisors ( Lt. above ) still working the street keeps them in touch and allows them to have a better understanding when we get complaints over little crap instead of going on a witch hunt every time. However, it sounds like City of Craig Beach Council members are spineless too. If they are not supporting their chief, they have more problems then this.

As Tony said, "So what is the problem?" he was more gentle than many I've seen. He didn't throw her around or shove her uncontrolled. He always tried to direct her movement. If the City Council doesn't feel that is appropriate, maybe they should visit the real world, or maybe they are willing to get off their ass and do the job!

The only problem I see is the victim is a black woman. Now days it seems that minorities are allowed to shoot the first shot, throw the first blow, and then if the officer survives, then he/she can take appropriate action. He did not wait for her to throw the blow. Now he is on the defensive.

LIke John Wayne said - Life is hard and its harder if your stupid. Move along, nothing to see here.

He better get his job back, very professional, she was buckling back up like she was going to drive away, he had to prevent her from becoming a risk to others on the road seeing she was already a risk to herself and the officer.

I see no excessive force here. I see a driver making a minor offense into a jailable offense, which happens more than the public realizes. (How many of our "good citizens" talk themselves into a ticket when all they were going to get was a warning or in this case talked and acted themselves into jail.) Good job chief for keeping your cool. Now go find a town that will support you and its police force.

Well guys, I see it as no respect for the Badge or the Uniform, which shows an upbringing with contempt for the rights of others. I'm using the word "upbringing" even though I don't think she had one. Add the fact that shes a woman of color and you have a lawsuit. Pathetic.

Me @ 8/12/2012 5:15 PM

$20 says she started playing the race cad just as soon as she found out she was getting a ticket. Then he games begin. With her leaning across the centerline of the car throughout him tryng to remove her from it, she could have been trying to get to a gun to shoot his "white ass". Christ and every cop on Earth knows this has been done a million times over. The city council there is a pathetic, cowardly bunch of officious turds - to put it nicely. Experiene makes me 100% certain they would mch rather seen him shot a few times before he even tried to lay a finger on her belligerant, oncooperative self. And if he managed to shoot her back, and he survived, they wold have certainly fired him. POS town councils like this would much rather see 100 dead cops then a single inconvienced citizen. And you can be sure the familys of those 100 dead cops would be paying for the furnerals, not the city.

As a former police officer in the State of Ohio, I would have done exactly the same thing as the Chief. The video clearly shows that the Chief gave the "Good Citizen (lol)" many chances to comply. All she had to do was to sign her citation and she would have been on her way. However, she elected to be non-compliant and resistant. There is no volume, so we do not know what the woman said to the Chief, as you can see his reaction to a comment just prior to removing the woman from the car. If a person refuses to voluntary get out of a vehicle after being directed to do so, then a police officer must and should use whatever means necessary to remove the person from a vehicle, even if by force.

Bumper @ 8/16/2012 6:27 AM

Wouldn't it have been easier to write "refused" on the citation and give her the ticket!

Angel @ 8/21/2012 7:02 PM

I did not see one thing the Chief did incorrect. Can someone explain pls?

jim @ 3/3/2013 6:23 PM

HOW ABOUT THE US CITIZENS .WE THE PEOPLE''JUST GO WITH THE PROGRAM'' THATS BULLSHIT ALOT OF MEN DIED TO PROTECT WE THE FOR THE RIGHT OF FREEDOM..WE THE PEOPLE DON'T AWAYS HAVE TO GO WITH PROGRAM..WE THE PEOPLE DON'T ALWAYS NEED TO COMPILE WITH THE LAW MAN ..WE THE PEOPLE ARE SLOWLY LOOSING ARE RIGHTS ..DID NOT LOOK LIKE HE EVEN HAD A REASON TO OPEN HER DOOR.....

A @ 7/19/2013 6:19 AM

And crap like that is why we have the most incarcerations in the world. She's old and harmless. Maybe the cop should swallow his pride here and send her on her way. No need to be f**king with some old lady.
