Cop struggles to take down suspect

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.

4 bouncers ambush 2 men

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.

Police officer choked by suspect, is saved by backup

This police officer is outmatched in hand to hand combat and could have been strangled to death if backup didn’t arrive. He is also lucky that the suspect wasn’t able to apply a more effective choke earlier, otherwise there would have been plenty of time to strangle unconscious and murder the officer.

This video demonstrates that guns are not a trump card and can potentially be overcome even by a person who is unarmed. It is also important to recognise that grappling skills in this specific situation represent the only way to survive.

Cops fail to control man who is passively resisting

These cops first attempt to control the man by grabbing the wrists, just as they have been trained to do. The suspect passively resists, denying control. The cop then moves to the schoolyard headlock which is similarly effective. OC spray is then used which also apparently does not work. A second man begins to intervene. Video ends with no resolution.

6 police struggle to take down 1 man

The first officer to make physical contact attempts an armbar takedown which serves to spin the man around while remaining on his feet. Other police swarm and start grabbing at his arms and wrists. The police pull the man in all directions at the same time, which prevents escape but does not help to take him down.

One officer makes a half-hearted attempt at controlling the legs, but lets go. The man eventually is forced to lean forward, and in combination with tripping over the feet of one officer while being pulled forward in a headlock by another, he falls to the ground.

Officer knocked out while attempting to restrain main

Police make the mistake of attempting to handcuff before gaining control of this suspect. As they pin him against a wall while standing, they start grabbing for wrist locks and/or arm control while releasing any kind of control of the man’s body and posture they had gained. He twists and strips his arms free, then knocks out the male police officer with a punch.
