Call for backup if they need to, put him in a cell if they need.

Cops aren't supposed to beat people bloody, hence their little problem of a trial hanging over their heads.

You mean call for the backup that already had been called for and had arrived? That backup? Presumably the idea of locking him in a cell had occurred to them and would explain why they were trying to handcuff the nutter before they could transport him to said cell?

Cops are supposed to beat people bloody, they're even supposed to shoot people dead, so long as that's the appropriate level of force that circumstances dictate.

I think Bambi is just trolling tbh.

I live in Boston and definitely notice a difference in the police over here. I hope that these thugs were just outliers in the police force. However, in general, you notice far more immediate attitude from police officers over here. A lot would shout at you as soon as talk to you (lads doing traffic duty for instance).

All the police officers in this video should have been charged.

Yep. Thats why closed mental wards and secure hospitals have people dying every day of the week - they just can't deal with non-compliance without beatin a fella to pulp.

Interesting logic though, he got beaten up and died therefore the coppers must be in the wrong because omg omg omg look at the video.
Yeah, let's not look at the video. Let's ignore the bit when the cop said he was going to **** him up.

i presume you are excluding suicides from your calculations?

......why would I include suicides in a discussion on the level of force and methods used to move a mentally ill person by a number of security personnel?

And why would you even mention it...?

You brought up deaths in mental health wards. Do you actually know anything about them?

Sick to my stomach after watching that, actually turned it off shortly after the second two cops arrived on the scene.

You should probably get your facts straight before you decide to make a complete arsehole out of yourself.

Jesus. I'd normally be for defending cops, but f***ing hell. Guy twirling his baton, then both swinging at him as he's running. I hope they get convicted. As cops, a lifetime in segregation, tantamount to solitary confinement, awaits. They'll wish they'd killed themselves.

Not really, I just find it funny that people think their oh-the-humanity-that's-so-waffles response to seeing a guy being beaten is in anyway as valid as an understanding of the relevant laws or use of force matrix that the cops were operating under.

Am I defending the coppers? Nope, I'm just having a go at this lot posting here. Cos I cant tell see whats going on in most of that video and what I can see would be in compliance with most use of force policies. If it turns out that they tazed the guy in the face repeatedly or smashed his skull in with a torch then they'll go down. If you can see where that happens in the video post the timings up. Third time of asking and no takers for that, odd
