Police force supports officer shock

Posted in The Job - Comment, Videos by 200

Somebody declined to follow instructions at a stop check, the officer thought he was going for a weapon so he dragged him out of the car & forcibly detained him.

It later turned out that the man had not committed any offences, was released without charge, but the force have said the officer acted reasonably & released footage of the incident, all within a few days of the incident

This did not, nor could it, happen in the UK. Where the officers’ bosses would have taken a wholly different approach which would still be under investigation by Christmas 2011 & beyond.
