Imagine if she actually hit the cop. Headline would read "Officer shoots woman during house fire".

What I don't get is why the news is totally ignoring the fact that the cop slugged the woman before the hair-pulling started. When the woman slapped him, the angry look on his face shows that he planned to retalliate as he approached her. Watch the video again. She is clinging to the back of the fire truck, the cop pulls her hand off the truck, then she slaps at him. Her husband pulls her back a couple of feet, then the cop advances on her anyway and with his left hand slugs her on the right side of her head. You can clearly see the jolt of her head as it is knocked toward her left as a result of the cop's punch. Then the hair-pulling starts. Makes you wonder how much force it takes for a large angry man to subdue a terrified mother and also whether that cop's punching and hair-pulling is standard training at the San Diego Police Academy
