Fla. PD Defends Cop Shown Throwing Woman (Video)

Miami Beach Mayor Mattie Herrera Bower said the situation was getting out of control. "Here is this one policeman, and the crowd is getting bigger and bigger," Bower said. "He had to be in control. There was no doubt that a policeman needs to be in control. It was very rude and heavy how he got her down." In a statement, Miami Beach police said Greenback needed to be taken into custody for her safety and the safety of the officer. The department said it watched several YouTube videos of the incident and concluded that Simon "acted appropriately" as he was "dealing with the volatile situation at hand."

 The Mayor sounds like an idiot.

Firstly, there was more than one cop at the scene:

1. The guy putting a choke hold on the man on the ground, and

2. The guy in the white shirt who kept saying that the uniformed cop was a "good guy."

If the the cop was worried about there being no "back-up," he shouldn't have escalated the situation by doing what he did to the woman.
