Cop Punches Woman In The Face - Excessive Force? Yes Or No?

Don't know if you've seen this clip or not, but a police officer is attempting to arrest a woman and her friend intervenes and gets clocked by the cop. Do you think that the cop used excessive force? Yea or nay. Leave a comment below.

The video is from TheYoungTurks and they have a bit of a debate about the cop's actions after you watch the clip. You should know that the cop was arresting the girl for jay-walking. Yes, for jaywalking. He shouldn't have pressed the issue beyond giving them a stern "Don't jaywalk." But then again, the girl shouldn't have resisted. But to punch the second girl in the face with a closed fist? Sorry Hoss, but there was no need to escalate this incident. The cops are of course, standing behind the officer.

What do you think? Leave a comment.
