“He did nothing wrong”

Not entirely by way of defense of the two women who were not behaving ideally in their interaction with a Seattle police officer . . . but is this really what a Seattle police union rep really ought to be suggesting about the officer in this incident – wherein he slugged an apparently unarmed woman – in this video:

“He did nothing wrong. If anything, I think he maybe waited a little too long to engage in force because I think he was trying to defuse the situation and calm people down . . .”

Seattle is lucky a riot didn’t erupt then and there. Historically, riots have been sparks by just such incidents . . . even when not caught on video.
