I don't see the scratch?

Quote:
A Washington woman suffering from mental and hearing disabilities was left with severe bruises on her face after she claims an officer punched over and over her because she could not understand his orders....In an interview with the station KIRO-TV, Graham, her face still black and blue and swollen, said that she got out of the car, told the officer she was just going to carry her dog to her friend's unit and offered him to accompany her. ....'Miscommunication': Graham claims she could not understand the officer's orders to get back into her car due to her hearing disability, so the man lunged at her and attacked her....Federal Way police, however, offered a different version of events, claiming that when an officer approached Graham to arrest her, she clenched her fists, took a fighter's stance and tried to strike the cop.
In a photo provided by the police department and posted on the FoxNews.com, Antholt is seen showing what was described as a scratch mark on his cheek, which he allegedly sustained during his confrontation with Graham.

If the caller was deaf, wouldn't they have the special phone to call 911 on? Wouldn't the operator then relay that info to the police?

I'm missing something.

She got off fairly easily, to be honest.

A lot of cops really need to learn how to deal with ordinary people, instead of instantly flying off the handle.

Thats the problem with some cops these days. Fly off the handle, be a complete jerk, be violent regardless the situation. Ask questions after the fact.

Guess what after the facts, is sometimes too late?

What comes after committing felony assault?

The most important part: paid leave!

She's lucky she wasn't executed at least.

This time.

Based off the article it sounds like the police in Federal Way, Wa were definitely in the wrong on this one and should of been more observant of the person.

If she had been a few miles north in Seattle, they probably would've shot her.
