[su_right_ad]The Seattle police officer punched the drunk woman in the face while she was handcuffed sitting in the back of a police car.

Dashcam footage from inside the vehicle shows Adley Shepherd hitting Miyekko Durden-Bosley, 23, after she kicked the officer in the head while under arrest.

[su_r_sky_ad]The officer’s blow fractured the woman’s right eye, according to medical records.

But prosecutors said that Shepherd had ‘acted professionally’ and concluded they did not have enough evidence to prove his use of force wasn’t necessary…

On June 22, Officer Shepherd arrested an intoxicated Durden-Bosley while out on patrol.

She then protested, claiming she had not made any threats and had not been violent to her partner…

Frustrated, she is then heard saying ‘f*** you bitch’ during the footage before kicking the officer. The strike is not seen on camera.

Shepherd reacts by pushing her into the back of the patrol car and punching her in the eye.

After the kick, Shepherd is heard saying ‘my jaw is jacked’ but according to the Seattle Times, medical records showed there was no sign of injury.

A statement released on Friday by the King County Prosecutor’s office said:¬†Officer Shepherd reacted instantaneously to the kick by the suspect, who was wearing boots, with one punch to the suspect’s head which caused a fracture of an orbital socket.

‘While Officer Shepherd may have had other options or alternatives, we have concluded that we would be unable to prove that Officer Shepherd’s use of force was criminal.’

    You must’ve missed the part that said SHE KICKED HIM IN THE HEAD. Maybe the next arrestee will refrain from such an action for fear of an immediate reprisal.

      “…medical records showed there was no sign of injury.” obviously there’s no video of her attacking him just his word.

        He has no sign of injury.

        We deserve better from our peace keepers.

        If you ask me he ‘mugged’ for the camera…. It looked like he made sure he was in full view, rubbing his jaw

        EDIT:medical records showed there was no sign of injury.

      We should expect our officers of law to conduct themslves in a more civilized manner.
      We’re supposed to be America the great, the awesome, the land of the free and home of the brave.
      How about our officers act like it?

      The best course of action that officer could have taken would have been to put her in the back of the car, shut the door and walk away.
      That is what we should expect from our police forces.

      Dignity.

      I guess you missed this part… “medical records showed there was no sign of injury”…. To the Officer

    Yes, let’s just militarize every police department in the nation, declare permanent Marshall Law and be done pretending that we have rights.

      It sure feel’s like that’s the reality…. I see unrest coming, and I think they have already geared up for it..

    There are simply no more consequences for anything cops do anymore. They’ve been given free rein to do literally anything to anyone, anywhere, for any reason. The legal powers-that-be have consistently and overwhelmingly granted them this power.

    The police state is no longer a hypothetical thing in America. It’s real. It’s here. Today.

    They focus all of their attention on the poorest of us…. and do nothing to the people at the top, who hurt millions of people… Just an extension of the Oligarchy
