A video clip of a Seattle, Washington police officer punching a 17 year old girl in the face has been causing great controversy ever since its recent release.

Apparently, it all began when the cop aggressively began to shove one girl and attacked another when she attempted to intervene and come to her friend’s rescue. All of this mayhem occurred over something simple as Jaywalking!

Do you think the cop was right for this type of behavior??? There are plenty of other ways he could have handled this situation, right? Give us your opinion!
