Rgarding the cop's punching the woman (Apr. 25, "Fired trooper on Ogden force"), under no condition should an officer of the law or any other man, punch a woman. What did that woman do to deserve a punch-out to her face? Was she punching him or threatening his life? What kind of excessive action is this?
This is unacceptable conduct from any man toward a woman, especially, an elderly female. It's such a ridiculous act from anyone, yet so demeaning and unnecessary from an officer of the law. It's out of control, in any case.
Stop these excessive acts of violence. These patterns of violent behaviors are far too common. Break this cycle of violence, regardless of who you are.
