There's been a considerable - and we think justifiable - amount of backlash regarding this cell phone video (above) taken that shows a Seattle police officer punching a 17-year-old girl in the face after she and another were stopped for jaywalking.
The officer's disgusting act of police brutality has thrown him under review, but the President of Seattle Police Officer's Guild has made it clear that he defends the monster:
[Officers Guild President] Rich O'Neil told KCPQ-TV that punching her in the face was an appropriate use of force as the officer [Ian P. Walsh] struggled with two women and a crowd formed. O'Neil says it's wrong to call the punch police brutality or racist.
Watch the video above and tell us, do you think that punch was an 'appropriate use of force?'
Those men should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. Disgusting.
