A brutal outcome as the victor continues to assault the other boy who is having a seizure as a result of serious brain injury. No regard for the potentially fatal outcome.
Belligerent man attempts to intimidate couple, pushing a female in the process. He seems to regret this a split second later as he reaches to hold and prevent her from falling.
Unfortunately he has already failed miserably to take stock of the situation he is in – alone, drunk, surrounded by bystanders who may not tolerate his behaviour.
Police officer attempts to take down resisting suspect with armbar, a technique commonly taught to police in many countries. This results in the officer failing to control the body of the suspect, and falling beneath him into a dangerous position. Luckily his colleague was competent and timely with the TASER.
Robber reaches to hold victim in an effort to control him which creates and is related to further problems:
- No reactionary gap
- Reaches with left arm, helping conceal the draw of the victim’s right arm
- Wearing a hoodie which limits peripheral vision
The victim/victor then immediately transitions to the second robber.
First officer does not reach for her own gun as she does not want to lose control of the suspect’s gun. Releasing the weapon to move toward the rear of the vehicle and fire may have been effective.
However, she stalled the suspect long enough that her partner could intervene, firing a single shot to kill him.
Unfortunately this video ends too soon, however the point of interest is this officer’s lack of ability to control and take down the suspect. He uses wrists holds and loose head control which prevents the man from escaping until backup arrives, which is gets the job done ultimately.
This man does not have many skills; but speed, distance management, movement and positioning allow him to use his right hand to great effect against men who possess even less skills than he does.
Two men argue with two security guards. Another guard grabs one of the men around the neck from behind. As the other man looks back and is distracted, a security guard standing in front of him punches.
The guards flanked and overwhelmed the two men. Human only have eyes in one side of their head, and a split second of distraction is all that is needed to land a punch undefended.
Most people tend to overestimate their fighting ability. This man is off the mark further than most when he is surrounded by 5 youths (including the one operating the camera). He initiates the violence (flicks a cigarette at one and pushes another) but takes no appropriate action – allows himself to be surrounded, does not move, does not position himself correctly or attempt to isolate and incapacitate his opponents. He appears to falsely assume these youths will cower and back off.
