Something you should never do is get in the way of an officer when they are taking someone into custody.
I would also not recommend putting hands on the officer or, better yet, slapping them in the face.
Tamani Crum, 19, did all of those, and she wound up flat on her back, holding her nose.
Not a Good Idea
Police were taking a suspect into custody when the neighborhood went nuts.
Crum was among them just as the scene started to get ugly.
She approached the suspect, and you can see them exchanging words.
Crum then appears to shove the cop, and when she gets pushed back, she slaps the officer right in the face.
His response, he traded a slap for a closed fist punch…
Finally, the cops ain't taking it anymore.

Was the officer right or wrong?
The usual suspects are already asking for his job, but let’s look at this from the officer’s perspective.
They were taking in a murder suspect and the crowd was getting out of control.
He had just been slapped in the face in front of the unruly crowd and he knew he had to get the situation under control right away.
My guess is instinct kicked and he leveled her.
Crum has already been charged with assault against a police officer, among other charges.
Forget the woman’s size and the fact it was a woman… she assaulted a police officer.
Exactly what did she think the outcome was going to be?
You tell us? Was the cop right or wrong?
