I’ve seen the video, and I think he was right to.
I’m glad that the majority of comments I’ve seen have been in support of Officer Ian Walsh.
Say what you want about citing jaywalkers, the girls in this incident reacted inappropriately and got what they deserved.
You don’t touch an officer while the person he’s trying to ticket is cussing him out.
Here’s my comment on YouTube:
What if the officer hadn’t gotten the situation under control? What if he said, “I’ve got this one girl cussing and refusing to listen to me, I’ve got this other girl shoving me and a bunch of people gathering around, I think I’ll let this one go”? I say good job for this officer standing his ground and not setting an example that if you protest and harass a cop enough, that you can get away with illegal activities.
