SPD violence trend

One would hope that the SPD’s recent headline-making brutality was a rarity, but another unbelievable incident makes me think that Seattle police officers are losing their minds.

A policeman stopped a 17 year old female and her friend for jaywalking (yes, the Police in Seattle apparently have nothing better to do) and when they resisted he ended up punching her in the face. I think she and her friends went overboard in their behavior, but did the officer have no options aside from decking her? Video of the incident is here.
