Well, Rev, I agree that he didn't HAVE to throw her to the ground. But he did. Why? Maybe because he just lost patience after she hit him, tried to block him from reaching her boyfriend, refused to submit to arrest, etc. She was probably taunting him as she was trying to elude his grasp when he threw her down, too. Sometimes too much provocation results in too much reaction, maybe.
De Niro didn't HAVE to shoot that bitch who was raggin on him without relent, either, but he did. She could have avoided it, but, nooooooooooo.
She should be tryin to swagger around like a big dog, tryin to push cops around, and ****, if she doesn't want to suffer the foreseeable consequences. Same with my great-great-grand-baby.
