Lady Cop Pummels Old Woman In Columbus Ohio
Columbus, OH—This came to me via a Facebook friend who works as a Cook County Public Defender in Chicago.
At this time I can’t give you background on the underlying circumstances that brought the police to this scene. You see the event unfold as the cell-phone camera owner and others agitate the police for all they're worth.
An old woman goes down hard and was bleeding after she brandished a nasty looking knife at a young policewoman. The officer properly followed her training here. The results are tragic in that the old gal somehow lost it. I’m sure the officer was herself traumatized by the entire event.
This was one of those split-second decisions cops must sometimes make. For those that don’t know it knives at close range are much more deadly than firearms.
