I'm kindda split on this one..

If women in the military are fighting to have the right to be alongside their male counterparts on the frontlines in the theatre of war, then fair game, for example. If an enemy soldier is in my scope which happens to be a female, do i?

a) ignore her and pop a male soldier, not knowing she was their #1 soldier and sniper.

b) pop her and treat her like any other soldier?

If women want no holds bar and want to be equal like their male counterparts then surely, they should not get prefertial treatment. Im not saying getting abused by authorities is acceptable whether they be male or female, im just saying equal treatment is what you will get.

And i will admit i dont believe hitting women neither should they be in the front lines.

Think of it this way, it is dark, you have a person pulled over who is not following directions, sex does not matter, women can also be dangerous, and she keeps refusing to follow the officers orders after he goes over to her. Try walking in their shoes some time and you might see this differently. Just so you know I agree there are good and bad cops out there, they are a cross-section of the citizens, weed the bad ones out and learn to live with it, it is still better than anywhere else you can go in the world.
No. He didn't have to slam her into the car. It doesn't take slamming someone into a car to turn them around and put cuffs on them.

A Florida police officer was fired and arrested after a camera mounted in his car showed him slamming a hit-and-run suspect against her car multiple times.



The video appears to show officer Christopher Geraci grab suspect Abbi Bonds' arm and shove her after she refused to obey his command that she hang up her cellphone and reenter her car, WEAR-TV reported.

Geraci then appears to grab Bonds by the hair and force her against the side of the car as he attempts to handcuff her.

"I'm not fighting you," she is heard saying. "Why are you hitting me?"

Bonds, 29, is suspected of being the driver in a hit-and-run accident.

Based on the video, it seems Bonds did not resist Geraci as she stood outside her damaged vehicle around 2 a.m. on Aug. 2.

Before we get into full on police bashing, the cop in question was fired and charged with battery and arrested.


The system worked. A bad guy will go to jail.

If she was drunk she'll get out of these charges easy now. She can just argue in court that the hit on the head TWO times made her fail the field sobriety test.

First off, she was the problem. She committed hit-&-run and DUI as well as other past crimes. Her intoxication lead her to lie to the officer and disobey the officer's orders. He was at fault for letting his temper get the better of him. I hope they don't throw out her conviction because of his actions.

The DUI is one thing. Physical harm is a totally different phase of crime, that includes rage and hate.
DUI and hit-&-run is much more violent and physically dangerous than what was shown on the video.
