what was this over anyway? throwing snowballs?
Personally, I can give a cop some leeway on confrontations if the suspect was a suspect in a violent crime.
but this was a kid (maybe she looks 14-15 to the cop...so what?)
and the cop had no reason whatsoever to take any kind of physical action to put her to the ground and arrest her like that.
come on people!!!! what risk was that cop taking by dealing with her in the manner the sensible folks here recommended???
it was a child, female, and she was suspected of throwing a snowball.
what risks for the cop? she might have had a weapon? are you serious?
