Twitter’s reaction to incidents like this is always mind blowing.  The video makes it clear that the officer was wrong but there are still people that have complicated the incident.  The following tweet explains that the police officer will be looking for a new job soon.

The following tweet claims that it’s different when the skin color is changed.  I do not agree.  Wrong is wrong and anyone who is trying to justify the officer’s actions is wrong.  Reasonable force is what must be used in situations like this and the officer was not harmed by the woman’s slight slap therefore no force would have been reasonable.

The tweet below explains that the cop is a trained professional so he must be held to a higher standard.  That’s exactly correct.  Police officers are trusted by the communities they serve to help maintain peace and order.

The following tweet explains the importance of unity in situations like these.  As a united front, we should ignore color and only consider who was right and who was wrong.
