I really don't see the problem. That nasty little bitch bit him -- now he's got to get tested for AIDS and every other damned thing. His reaction didn't seem particularly inappropriate to me.

Here's something we actually agree on. What was he supposed to do, ignore the violation and being bitten? He could have caused a lot more pain/damage by taking her to the ground forcefully which is what I would have done. It's unfortunate that some people think that LEO's doing their jobs make them abusive a$$holes.

She was resisting, she should have been also charged with resisting.

Now, watch the race card get played again.

Note to all wanting to play the race card: It ended over 100 years ago. The officer had nothing to do with it.

Exactly. Which is why he probably did not throw her to the ground, knee in back, and forcefully apply the cuffs. I counted at least 10 orders to place hands behind back. It's the officer's job to elevate the force required to subdue a resisting subject. If he had ended it quickly as is the proper procedure, he wouldn't have been bitten, punched her, and then sprayed her. But again, he was stepping pretty gingerly and made sure the incident was "on camera" to cover himself. That is a tough job to have ladies and gents, trust me. There are bad apples in every barrel, but less so than a random sampling of the population, I assure you.

We don't know if the arrest was for strictly a curfew violation or not. It's not the officer's job to interpret law, only enforce it. I'm guessing the girl was stopped for a curfew violation, and her mouth or something else she did or was carrying caused the arrest. Again, his job is enforcement. Is it possible there was a curfew in effect in the first place because this was a "problem" area?

Here is the whole story...

FORT PIERCE - A 15-year-old girl is facing a felony battery charge from a curfew violation incident in which a city police officer struck and pepper sprayed her after she bit him — actions shown in a police videotape released Thursday.

Fort Pierce Police Chief Sean Baldwin said he stands by how Officer Dan Gilroy handled the July arrest.

“It is shocking to see that a police officer has had to use that level of force against a child,” Baldwin said Thursday night. “But ... my opinion is he responded appropriately and in accordance with our policies.

“I do not expect my officers to stand there and allow a child or an adult to bite them,” he added.

Gilroy was trying to handcuff Shelwanda Riley, 15, of the 300 block of South 25th Street, for breaking the city’s curfew when she became increasingly violent and bit him, according to the police report.

Gilroy dragged the girl to the front of his car, dodging her kicks and swings and activating his in-car video camera to record the remainder of the encounter, his report said.

At one point, she “clamped down on my hand/wrist and I felt immediate pain shot up my arm,” the officer wrote. “The pain was shocking, and I thought the suspect was going to extract a large piece of flesh from my hand.”

Riley was in court Thursday and had her case scheduled to go to trial Nov. 28. She faces a felony charge of battery on a law-enforcement officer and misdemeanor charge of resisting an officer or obstructing justice without violence.

Last week, Baldwin received a call from the Public Defender’s Office expressing concerns the girl’s family had about the video recording of the arrest.

Baldwin asked the Public Defender’s Office to have Riley’s family contact him, but he said he hasn’t heard from them.

Gilroy, who was wearing cut-resistant gloves that protected him from serious injury, struck the 100-pound girl in response to the bite, the report said.

“(She) left a large amount of saliva on my wrist as she took a full bite,” the officer wrote. “My wrist was red and slightly bruised, but there was no broken skin.”

Gilroy was responding to a 911 call about a suspicious couple walking the area of 24th Street and Boston Avenue with full garbage bags, when he met up with Riley at about 1:50 a.m.

She was carrying a bag of what appeared to be new clothing, the officer reported.

Photos provided by the Fort Pierce Police Department show scars on Riley’s wrist that Baldwin says “happens when people that are handcuffed resist by pulling away.

“They actually get scrapes, abrasions on the wrist,” he said.
