Incident from Sydney, Australia.
The footage shows a 28-year-old woman holding down a 13-year-old boy, waving a knife around and yelling “I’m going to kill someone” and repeatedly declaring she is an “ice addict”.
Police officers approached the woman from the front, while one officer came in from behind her to pull her off the teen, dragging her away before three other officers hold her to the ground.
The woman can be heard screaming while the officers detain her.
The boy then escaped and was not physically injured during the incident.
Key mistake is that the police officer fails to keep a safe distance or at least adopt a defensive posture and bladed stance while close to the suspect. Incident appears to be mental health related.
Police in this video clear a house room by room with a mix of best practice and sloppier methods (in particular brazenly opening doors and sticking their head or guns in) before they are confronted with a man who attacks with a knife. Luckily, in the last room they did not approach the closet door immediately and open it, allowing enough of a reactionary gap to avoid being stabbed.
A physically outmatched police officer attempts to use Taser and baton. A second police officer arrives and shoots the man.
A man with two knives attempts to stab a police officer. Due to sheer luck, he did not attempt to stab the officer anywhere except the stab-proof vest he was wearing.
A taser was deployed very little practical effect.
Police in the state of Victoria, Australia use pain compliance to handcuff a mentally ill pensioner.
The police officers used a baton and OC spray to achieve pain compliance as they were unable to handcuff the man by physically controlling him, perhaps due to lack of skill and/or malicious intent. Once he is handcuffed, a garden hose is used to decontaminate the man of OC spray, and this action has been interpreted by the public simply as further means to humiliate the man. An officer pulling out his personal phone to film the event only makes it look worse.
Police officer gives a mentally unstable Vietnam war veteran far too many chances, falls into verbal looping and fails to act until the gunfight starts. A prime example of why police shoot as soon as the threat of a gun is apparent, and also why they aim for centre mass. It is very difficult to shoot a moving target accurately under stress, especially when that target is shooting back.
Warning, the screams from this police officer as he is murdered are horrific.
