A few day ago, we had a story about a Seattle cop who was recorded punching a woman in the face after she shoved him during an arrest. (The cop was trying to arrest the woman's friend for jaywalking.) The woman who got punched has been charged with third-degree assault for shoving the officer. Meanwhile, the two of them have met privately, and the young woman has apologized to the policeman.
