In a recent use of force situation on an MTA train in Los Angeles, an LAPD Sgt. removed an 18 year old female from the train for a violation of the MTA code of conduct. Who was responsible for the ultimate need for use of force? The reality is that to the casual and uniformed person, and certainly those who have an axe to grind (legitimate reasons or otherwise) with law enforcement use of force is never going to “look good” or “be pretty.”
I break this down briefly but feel free to follow up in the comments.
