Seattle police say they’ll review police tactics and training after an officer was shown on video punching a young woman in the face. The action is drawing condemnation from some community groups. (June 16)
A community group says the scuffle stemmed from a charge of jaywalking. Police officer Ian Walsh (a male/white police officer) was caught on video arresting Marilyn Levias (female/black 17 y/o) after a jaywalking incident this week. While the teen resisted arrested Walsh threw a punch that was also caught on camera.
