    You just do not treat an officer as that young girl did.

    This was not a classroom with an unruly pupil.

    She was hostile towards him,

    the other girls life and well being was not in danger.

    One thing I don't understand is why he did not cuff her right away when she was leaned over the car.

    And something else, I thought, esp with a minor ~~~a woman cop, when she arrived would have taken a role

    with the first woman handcuffed, I did notice that a woman was with the second girl in the pink shirt.

    Being hit like that is very very very traumatizing......

    She will have emotional scars for a long time everytime she sees a white officer.....

    She is a child acting impulsively like a teenager......

    jay walking arrest..... really?

    Why not just issue a citation?

    I, a white woman, live in the area, and I totally support the officer. The school has asked the Seattle police department to perform jaywalking emphasis patrols, because students were refusing to use the over-the-street pedestrian bridge specifically built for the students. They were afraid someone would get hit, because the street is extremely busy.

    The officer would have "just issue[ed] a citation" had the girl cooperated. In addition, she has previously been charged with resisting arrest, so, at 17 years of age, she needs to start learning to control that "impulsive" behavior.

    If you resist arrest, and PUSH an officer, you had better expect to be punched, if not more! Hopefully, in his time in retraining, they will be able to teach him to better punch a man OR woman resisting arrest. I have great respect for the officer that he continued to address those circling him as "sir." I would have had another term for him.

    Why didn't he call for back-up?

    He did call for back-up. This happened before back-up arrived.

    He hit a girl, if it was your child regardless of the piss-poor behavior you would be through the freakin' roof .

    Nope. There in lies the problem. The "guardian" of this girl was on T.V. using the same excuse. Frankly, that would never have happend to my daughters, because they never would have been as stupid to pull such a stunt.

    If she thinks she's going to be "all that," then she better learn to take a punch, because it will continue to happen to her.

    If she would have been punched the first time she was arrested for resisting then maybe she would have learned her lesson then.

    Adult Male Teach punches 17yr old girl in face

    Adult Male Principal punches 17yr old girl in face

    Specious analogy. Teachers, principles and other authority "figures" do not have the authority to arrest, and to hit, punch, tase, or shoot those that refuse. Police do, and we are ALL obligated to obey. Police are not "authority figures," they are THE AUTHORITY. The sooner she learns she is no better than anyone else, the easier her life will become.

    So the answer is to punch her in the face....

    Does this option also apply to other wayward offenses for high school kids?

    If the officer is allowed, why not teachers, coaches, principals, or bus drivers? Do they not also have to deal with mouthy badly behaved teenagers?

    In theory..... it would be just as effective would it not? So why not expand this 'acceptable' practice? Why is the line able to be crossed here and not elsewhere..... I mean the above professions have far more contact with wayward teens than that officer.....


    I have no problem with her being charged, given a citation or being handcuffed...... what I have a problem with is an adult male (allegedly trained in tactical skills of taking down a 'bad guy') punching a female (any female) in the face.

    What if he had been a teacher, coach or principal? Would you feel the same way

    Yes. It's a very simple issue. When you ignore someone's legitimate authority and violently pursue them, you will and should be dealth with physical restraint. We live in a society of law and order, and the place to question authority or the exercise of it is not in the street. The hussy got exactly what she deserved, and yes, if it were my relative, I would say the same thing. In fact, I hold my own relatives to a higher standard than I do strangers.

    Here is some background on the poor, impulsive little teenage girls.


    Rosenthal was charged in November with second-degree robbery. According to prosecutors, she punched a 15-year-old boy in the face while she and a group of youths were on their way to a rave in South Seattle last Aug. 28. The boy told police that his cellphone and $20 were stolen in the incident. A 14-year-old boy told police that he was punched in the head and his hat was stolen.

    Authorities say the case was dismissed when the boys refused to testify.

    In April 2008, Rosenthal was charged with third-degree theft after she allegedly stole a minivan in Tukwila, prosecutors said. Kent police said she used a screwdriver to break the ignition and start the vehicle.

    The charge was later amended to theft of a motor vehicle. Rosenthal was given a deferred disposition — charges would be dropped if she stayed out of trouble — because it was a first-time offense, said Ian Goodhew, deputy chief of staff for Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg.

    Levias was charged in February 2009 with third-degree assault after she allegedly pushed a King County sheriff's deputy down.

    According to charging documents, on Feb. 3, 2009, deputies were called to the Ruth Dykeman Children's Center, a Burien center for troubled girls, in response to a report that Levias was being abusive toward staff. When Levias was confronted by Deputy Amy Zarelli, she pushed the female deputy, causing her to fall, charging papers said.

    Levias was given a deferred disposition because it was a first-time offense, Goodhew said.
