    I would love to know why he hit her. What did she do? I can’t tell. Probably nothing.

    Oh, she threw water on him. A punch in the face is definately warranted. Great job officer lol! Pretty sure he could have just grabbed her and cuffed her.

      2 seconds into the video, to the left there is an individual dressed in a black long-sleeved shirt, black shorts, and black shoes that throws some type of liquid/substance up into the air towards the group of officers.

      it is evident the woman had turned around in response to what i would assume is the liquid/substance falling on her as well, and had just happened to look back toward the officers and proceed to walk away.

      it’s at this point the lieutenant zeroed in on her as the perpetrator and proceeded to assault her. as the officers are detaining her, a can of silly string that she was holding is thrown to the side rolling onto the street. they may have assumed that she was the guilty party based on her possession of that can.

      while we don’t know what happened prior to the start of the video, based on the information available, i’m of the opinion that there was a better way to handle the situation rather than a civil servant feeling the need to use excessive force to assert his authority over an individual.

      i’ve updated the post with some recent news links to this story.
