Pussy Pass

The above video is found around the web and is usually titled something like “Cop punches girl in the face for jaywalking”. Sounds terrible. An innocent women violently attacked for a victimless crime . The actual title should be “girl tries to help friend escape from police, gets what she had coming”

The video starts shortly before the punch so we don’t  see what leads up to it. Based on the actions of all involved in the video, and using that to extrapolate what they probably would do, this is going to be my best guess of what really happened.
Girl Jaywalks
Either the cop is being a jerk and writing her a ticket for jaywalking, or the girl is a jerk and jaywalked in a way that endangered someone. Doesn’t matter since jaywalking is in fact a crime and the cop is within his rights to write her.
Girl and friend attempt to walk away
Girl gets arrested for trying to flee
Friend tries to stop arrest
Cops responds with proportional and reasonable force
OMG YOU SHOULD NEVER HIT A WOMAN

I’d never advocate violence. Nor would I advocate interfering with the police. If you do either you get what you get. In this case, she got what she deserved.
