Arizona Police "Brutality"

A few days ago a video surfaced on YouTube of officer Patrick Larrison shove a 15-year-old girl into a wall after she'd been in a drunken altercation with her mother in a strip mall parking lot.


If you read the comments on that article I just posted, theres a poster claiming they know the officer and the whole incident was a complete accident. But theres tons of holes in his reasoning, as well as the fact being: is it really ok even if it was all just an accident? But this is one of those 2 sided stories.

Story goes and I quote from a washing post article
"Sgt. Trent Crump said the girl’s school had called her mother and police because she was drunk and passing alcohol to other students. He said the girl was taken to the school’s office and that she pushed a male teacher and stormed out, causing her mother to follow her and try to hold her down until police arrived. The girl, who Crump said was uninjured, was charged in juvenile court with one count each of aggravated assault for pushing the teacher, domestic violence assault for punching her mother and threatening and intimidation for later telling the officers that she would kill them and their families."
It goes without saying this girl was shitty wasted and acting an ass. And theres no doubting that the girl would have started running when she saw the cop after her. Fact is though, she didn't run and wasn't resisting any kind of arrest when he started after her, slammed her, and forcefully picked her up. From the video you can see that he does collide with the girl and I'm not sure if it's with an intention to get her on the ground or just wrap his arms around her to catch her.

What is your opinion on this matter? Was he right in using even a little force, or was this all just too much and needed to be dealt with in a more civil manner?

  3. A grown man should never use force with someone who is half their weight. Stupid.

  6. She sounds like trailer park trash, and seeing the way she assaulted both her mother and her teacher I highly doubt she wasn't resisting to the officer.

    Not saying it's write if the officer did use brutality, but if some force was needed to detain her(drunken girls can be a handful) I think that is completely fine.

  7. That was WAY uncalled for. She was already unable to walk properly anyways from the alocohol, and then this cop comes tackling her to the wall? Seriously? Ever hear of a little RESTRAINT? I hope this jackamo gets fired and ends up working at his local gas station.

  8. That's just wrong. A man should never attack a woman like that.

  18. In my experience at a big party school, cops love preying on drunk girls. Its like they don't feel bad roughing them up.
