    Punched Seattle teen apologizes to police officer
    Associated Press

    Fri Jun 18, 9:26 pm ET

    SEATTLE ? A Seattle teen shown on video shoving a police officer who then punched her in the face has apologized to the officer in a private meeting.

    Seattle police say Officer Ian Walsh accepted the apology Friday.

    Separately, the King County prosecutor charged the 17-year-old girl as a juvenile with third-degree assault, which is punishable by a maximum 30 days in detention.

    The incident happened Monday as the teen was intervening in a friend's arrest for jaywalking. James Kelly of the Urban League of Seattle says he requested Friday's meeting between the teen and the officer at a community center to help calm the situation.

    Police have said the department's civilian-led Office of Professional Accountability is investigating the 39-year-old officer's actions.

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

    Even if she did get in the way of him doing his duty, he had no rights to punch this young lady in the face

    He should give her the same respect and apologize to her as well .

    This whole situation is fool from the beginning - why would someone get arrested for j-walking is beyond me? I know its the law but that is some craziness to me. For a country to be free we show can go to jail for walking.

    More people are killed yearly using the crosswalks then jaywalkers by drunk-drivers who do not stop at the light or stop sign. As of 2007 there were 4,450 federal crimes. This does not count state, city, county and the many other laws that we are subjected to. United States have thousands upon thousands of laws and it keeps increasing like every two years. Pretty soon it will be illegal to stop walking and taking a break if it already isn't. These people are crazy.

    I personally don't think the child should have been arrested for jaywalking - utilizing their god given freedom to walk anywhere they want. Punching the girl - she should be pressing charges against him for domestic abuse or something - I hope some black police officer catch his wife or daughter jaywalking across the street and punch one of them in the chin and I would love to see how he reacts to it as a father/husband and ultimately a racist.


    Peace

    ...Ain't gonna happen. They "know their place". And also too few black cops
    are in predominately white hoods where the chances of dealing with law-
    breaking white folks increase exponentially, not to mention the exposure.

    ...Coincidence?

    There was (and I assume still is), a time when bro's. and sis's wanting to
    become cops in order to "make a difference" in the hood. After looking in
    retrospect, I say to those black cops, if you wanna "make a difference" get jobs
    policing white hoods..., go in droves!

    No one has ever been arrested for jay walking. There is a play by play account of what unfolded in post #51 of the initial "punch" thread. These. Girls were wrong from jump street.

    Truth is mobile. Try disputing the facts I present rather than your emotional response to it.
