Many Twitter users cheered this woman on for her bravery and also pointed out that the way this man hit the pavement shows he’s most likely been arrested before.
“With his legs crossed like that, it’s obvious this ain’t his first time being told to ‘get on the ground.'”

“This guy thought she was plainclothes and he knew exactly what to do, immediately. He is a criminal. He’s been arrested more than once.”

This woman is an absolute badass!
We seriously need more Americans to stand up like this to those who might be trying to cause destruction.
