I love these stories!
But, since everyone is safe, time for the monday morning quarterback.
Why the hell did he get on top the suspect? It said the cops came in and handcuffed him, so he is on top of the suspect that isnt even cuffed. Dumb move in my mind, could have possibly turned for the bad.
Say you are in this situation. You stop a BG at gun point, tell him to lay on the ground, hands behind back. If you happen to have cuffs do you
1. attempt to place him in cuffs
2. have a bystander place cuffs on him, while you you keep aimed in center mass
3. dont place in cuffs for the possibility of violating civil rights and liberties
just a scenario i've ran in my head a couple of times
"The Marines I have seen around the world have, the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps." Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945
