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.
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.
Reluctant to go hands-on, police use their baton, then Taser which fails multiple times. One police officer attempts to knock over the man by rushing at him from behind but ultimately loses control as he stands up. The Taser is used again, then OC spray before the Taser is used once more before the man is taken into custody.
All of the tools police used in this instance depend on pain compliance, apart from the Taser which incapacitates for mere seconds IF the two prongs make contact correctly and in the correct positions on the body. Physical control with grappling techniques may have resulted in a faster and safer arrest, however these officers either lack those skills or were not willing to go hands-on.
In this case, it appears that baton strikes had no effect on the suspect who continued to resist. Grappling alone would have had the same result with less harm.
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.
