This shocking video shows the moment a New Jersey officer repeatedly punched a bikini-clad girl in the head during an arrest on Memorial Day weekend.*gasp* The brute! There can be no excuse.
Weinman, who went to the beach with her family and a friend, posted the incident on Facebook with a lengthy description of what she says happened.Hmmm, OK. I'm sure this will paint her in the best light, since it's her story. Won't it?
She claims the incident started when the cops approached her on their four wheelers and asked her and her friend for their ages because there was alcohol near them.
'I had alcohol, it’s Memorial Day weekend and 90 per cent of people are underage drinking on the beach, without a doubt,' she wrote.Ah. Well, that paints a somewhat different picture. She's breathalysed and it's negative. At that point, the incident would have been over, in any other encounter.
But not this one. Despite being sober as a judge, little miss 'I didn't do anything wrong' decides to mouth off.
'I asked them don’t they have something better to do as cops than to stop people for underage drinking on the beach, saying to that there’s so much more serious stuff going on... the cop said, "I was gonna let you go but now I’ll write you up" and he asked my name.Gosh, it's almost as if there are consequences in the real world, eh? You didn't learn that life lesson at college!
Weinman said that she didn't 'do anything wrong and anything could’ve been written down on that paper so I wouldn’t give it to him'.*settles in with popcorn*
She said the officers told her that they were going to arrest her despite her telling them that she was at the beach with her young daughter.I'm unaware of the rule that states the cops can't arrest a person because she has a daughter. Maybe it featured in one of those 'Law & Order' episodes I never finished?
'He told me he’s arresting me and started coming towards me to put handcuffs on me. I cautiously was backing up from him (facing him) and yelled for my daughter's father,' Weinman wrote.Bang to rights, love! You resisted arrest and started calling for help from a third party to continue to resist arrest. You're lucky you weren't shot.
'Stop resisting!' one of the officers yell before the other is seen hitting her twice in the head before body slamming her on her back. 'I'm not resisting. I didn't do anything wrong,' Weinman is heard saying as she kicks her legs at the officers.Honey, you did everything wrong! Here, watch this. I know you aren't black, but it still applies.
'You're not allowed to hit me like that,' Weinman repeatedly tells the officers who continue to hold her down and proceed to handcuff the young woman.This is the sort of generation that has come through the US educational system without any discernible learning happening. Arrogant, convinced of her 'rights', totally unaware of the existence of any consequences and thoroughly unprepared for reality.
I'd feel smug, if it wasn't for the fact that we are heading down the same path...
