Gotta agree. As soon as IronDwarf said, it's a woman, IMO that shows your judgment was clouded by gender and not the situation. We never even see the woman in the car. For all we know, she could have been some 300 lb behemoth. But regardless, she was using poor judgment and endangered her life, the police officers' lives and the lives of the general public. She was lucky. She could have ended up full of bullets instead. And it was obvious from the video, the officer was not striking out of anger; but looking for a certain result - getting her out of the vehicle so she was no longer armed with a 1 ton weapon.
