He Should Have Used His Taser


SPD has launched an investigation. It all started when a cop stopped a man for jaywalking. Things escalated quickly from there as voices were raised and a crowd gathered. When two young women intervened an onlooker pulled out his camera phone and started to roll tape.
The altercation took place yesterday the tape begins as the officer appears to be trying to arrest one of the girls for jaywalking.
The incident comes a month after an officer was caught on tape threatening to "beat the fucking Mexican piss" out of a robbery suspect he then stomped on the face.

King 5 says Seattle police have decided not to review tape of this latest arrest, but we'll see what happens later once this thing circulates.

The one who was punched was checked out by medics and deemed to be OK.

UPDATE: Deputy Chief Nick Metz told King 5 that police have concerns about the video.

"You obviously have to take into context everything that occurred from the point that the officer did make contact with the individuals until the situation ended. As I said before, we have some concerns about the tactics the officer used and employed at the time. Again, we did feel what occurred did deserve a review by the Office of Professional Accountability," said Metz.
