Should violent and or lethal force be allowed in detaining a non-violent suspect?
When I say violent or lethal force I mean chocking, punching,hitting someone with a baton, slamming someone to the ground,shooting and etc. This does not include other things at might hurt like sticking handcuffs on someone,grabbing suspect by the hands arms or some other body part, or putting the suspect's hands behind their back in order to restrain and or put handcuffs on the suspect.
When I say non-violent suspect I mean someone who is not punching,jabbing,brandishing a weapon, stabbing,hitting or kicking anyone.Basically someone is not physically hurting anyone. This person may be cooperating with police or he may be walking away,trying to get someone off of him.
Yes for violent and or lethal force if the non-violent suspect is not cooperating.
Yes for violent force if the non-violent suspect is not cooperating.
No regardless if the non-violent suspect is or isn't cooperating.
Maybe/I do not know.
I think most reasonable people agree that if a suspect is assaulting and or threatening the law enforcement officer's life then that officer should be allowed to use violent force or even lethal force to detain and or take down a suspect. However when it comes to non-violent suspects that might be a different story. Some people might argue that if you do not do what a police officer says then he can use what ever force he wants. While others will say no if the suspect is not trying to harm you or anyone else then you have no right to hurt that suspect. I want to lean towards no regardless of the non-violent suspect is or isn't cooperating.But there might be a circumstance that I am not aware of yet where it is necessary for a office to use violent force to detain a suspect.
