    Considering the media attention against the police lately, she was likely afraid for her life.

    What is sickening is that a child would fight with the police and spit at them. If shee followed instruction and did what she was told there would not have been a problem.

    She is 9. If grown adults can't handle a 9 year old without pepper spraying them then they shouldn't be police. She was fighting cuz she was scared

    I keep in mind that I'm no expert but I think there was no need to pepper spray, what they needed was a paddy wagon as its easier to load a resistant offender.

    That car looked as though it was designed for highway patrol or fast response like getting to a bank robbery, totally wrong car for domestic assault calls in my opinion.

    They say a society is based on how it treats its animals.

    I would expand that a society is judged on how it treats its children.

    Hard to fault you for noticing the single most salient point of all -- several adults, and one 9 year old girl!

    Do police in the US do any training at all these days?

    Reminder: know and understand the purpose and place of sensationalist "news" and give it the weight it deserves.

    To add - I'm not saying these things are OK, I'm saying keep deliberate shock-and-awe "news" coverage in perspective. Follow the data. News, whether sensationalist or not, often creates a distorted vision of reality because it focuses on what is new or unusual. In other words, stuff like this is likely neither normal or common.

    I agree.
    (You & I may not agree on much, but we certainly agree on that.)
    It probably stems from no guidance or structure at home.
    It seems many people don’t look at it from that perspective anymore.
    Respect for, and obeying authority is frowned on. A Sign of the Times, IMO. 2 Timothy 3:1-5

    Take care, my cousin.

    Yeah, I agree with that, too.....no need for the pepper spray.
    We are only given half the story.
    Why did the officers feel they needed to arrest her? What did she do? (That’s an important part.)
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    They recruit Right Wing Authoritarians and Social Dominants. They dress them like Robo-Cop, and give them an impressive armamentarium. They train them to take and maintain control in every encounter, and not back off. Their aggressive, take charge approach tends to escalate confrontations, not defuse them.
    They're not social workers.They're not trained for this kind of problem -- though they should be.

    This is exactly the sort of situation the Defund The Police movement wants to take off the police's hands.



    Why not

    Authority has to be respected. Otherwise don't have democracy or police. Though not recommending heartlessness. I have read many stories of police bravery and kindness - even in India.

    Authority has to be questioned.
    It derives its powers from the consent of the governed. It exists to secure the rights and freedoms of the people. Whenever it becomes destructive of these ends, it's our duty to alter or abolish it.

    Submission to authority has had grave consequences, historically.

    People are generally afraid of that which might hurt them. No?

    The officer made a very interesting comment as to why certain communities just don't get the same commodities as others. Now, for example, when a child takes a gun and wants to kill others, I guess it's ok by some to just let them do it because they shouldn't be apprehended by forcible means? (I guess it is ok with some...) What a miserable world we live in. But, of course, if a parent beats a child as "disciple," that's ok, right? Just wondering...your viewpoint.
