Us police should make commercials like this to show the public the reality of being cops and the emotional costs they face.https://youtu.be/W42LthqUEPEhttps://youtu.be/HCB4v0N835Ahttps://youtu.be/W42LthqUEPE
and that happens a lot these days. Soon cops will be ordered to be shot and not shoot back, they might take their guns away.
@888theGreat it's ridiculous that cops are being demonized and people are trying to justify resisting arrest. If you treat a cop with respect and don't resist at all there is a 99.9999% chance you'll make it home safely.
would you prefer guys keep getting choked instead?
Yes, if it might save their lives. The dumb assumption in the anti-choke argument is that all people who are choked end up dead. That's a really ignorant assumption. Only an infinitesimally small number of people who are put in a choke hold by police die. And probably more will die if they CAN'T use a choke-hold because it reduces the officers options to deal with someone who is violent or resisting arrest. There will be cases where using a choke hold will SAVE someone's life because otherwise he may have to be shot instead.Choke holds save lives.
so you'd be ok getting choked by a cop that gets angry with you?
That's just a stupid question. Of course not. But I'd rather have him put me in a choke hold than shoot me.
why are they banning it?
Because most people know very little about chokes.
if you were in charge would you allow guys to continue to get choked?
As long as the situation warrants it and it is a blood choke. I have no problems with it. Blood chokes are not as dangerous as most people think.
No one said there wasn't
If only they would just behave they wouldn't get strangled
There ya go
Because when done correctly the subject only wakes up with a headache rather than a dirt nap. Sub doing a combative subject without the option for officer (or others) leaves only killing them. Which would you prefer.
I have used both levels of force. I much rather they wake with a headache.
What if the black guy gets strangled?
That is the most retard question you've ever asked...
What if? What difference does it make? Officer safety still trumps politics.
By the way, I know you meant to ask about the carotid hold and not the “choke” hold as the choke has been banned for use for ten years.
Should not do it there either, many people die each year from it, probably more than virus 19. Any person that says lets have fun baby let me choke you while I bang you is a sick person, probably has sex with kids too, and probably has raped someone.
Because they're sometimes necessary to restrain an aggressor
What are you on about?This has nothing to do with race, so stopping spinning it that way cuz it's a false narrative
