You CANNOT judge all police officers by one police officers actions. I too have had to call the police for assistance with one of my children. Number one, unless you have a child who can go from the nice sweet angel to an angry out of control child you will never know what it is like, As for an eighteen year old, 90 lb child being defenseless against a grown man or woman, I beg to differ with you. I for one have had assistance, with my child and at all times they have been helpful to calm her and assist me with getting help for my child. I have personally had to watch my child in a hospital fight 5 grown men who had a very hard time trying to detain her. I assure you it was not easy for them or me. They were compassionate with my child and did not press charges even though my child has scratched, kicked and bitten them in the process. I do agree that the southport officer was way out of line, but the BSL officer and the Brunswick county officer did all they could to assist with caring and compassion from what I have read. I personally do not think the other officer will walk free for his part in this confrontation but PLEASE do not judge other officers that put their lives on the line for us daily by the actions of one officer. As for me I give thanks to the officers who assist us daily when we need them.
