    Circling the wagons.
    I bet they either reconfigure that counter or change policy after that. I haven't read the articles about it yet (although I know it headlined either the P1 or O.com mailer today), but the first few seconds are a good example of the bad guy telegrahing what he was going to do.

    This.

    Our booking is about 4x the size of that but it is (and always should be) elevated. There are color coded lines all over the place. Inmates and prisoners are very aware that if they cross the yellow and black stuff on the ground and enter the officer area, deadly force is authorized.

    Never had an issue. :cool:

    I can just hear the suspects attorney now..."the officer should be brought up on charges of excessive force. Law Enforcement Officers are only to use the force necessary to subdue the suspect, not choke them with both hands!"

    I say use whatever you have to to go home at the end of your shift.

    And like I tell my 19yo son, you'll appreciate this Dragoon, "old age and treachery will ALWAYS overcome youth and skill".

  10. Good job to the officer in the video, it reminds me of my father to be honest.


    My old man used to tell me "I may be older, but I can still whoop your ass"

    I liked that myself. He was going to win the fight, no matter what. If that perp wanted to continue to fight, he was going pay pretty heavily.

    Was the officer wearing a gun? Or was that a secure facility? It looked like the bad guy was grabbing for something on his belt.

    Whitely said Witt doesn’t appear to have violated any departmental policies during the incident. He said it isn’t uncommon for suspects to be released from handcuffs while in the booking area, particularly if the officer plans to release them after the booking process is completed.

    Pg 3 of the comments.

    Secure facility.

    Officer had secured his weapon.

    Suspect had tried to choke the officer, after grabbing at the officer's holster.

    That's a big dude to be tussling with anyway. Young and dumb, no wonder why this guy was in the jail to begin with. Definitely job security for the Correctional Staff!
