    They can take as much time as they want but, generally speaking, the more you let the suspect do what they want the more dangerous the situation gets for you. That's especially true with intoxicated detainees.

    -edit-

    Let me just add that it's also safer for the suspect if the cop takes quick and decisive action to maintain control. If a drunk breaks loose and runs into the path of a moving vehicle the result is likely to be a lot worse than a bump on the head.

    You don't deal with drunks all day do you? Non compliant, untrustworthy, aggressive, and unpredictable.

    I suggest going on a ride along at the hours of closing time at a bar. It will make more sense then why cops act the way they do towards drunks. Especially dumb ones. Plus they see the results of stupid drunks who drive.

    I think they should negotiate with them. :eyeroll:

    They are drunk.

    Your response is an implicit, "But it's so haaard to handcuff a 120-pound woman who's barely on her feet"?

    Good lord, I haven't the patience...

    It does not matter how you FEEEEEL about the level to which the officer followed the protocal. Thats between the officer and the department and the department has stated in fact he DID follow protocol. FEEEEELINGS about it are irrelevant.

    Well maybe you should take a break from the web if it drains your patience
    .

    Regardless of how you feel it should be done, the takedown was 100% legal. No question about it. Sometimes it's nessecary to gain immediate compliance

    Clearly she was black so...
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Probably didn't mean to knock her out.

    Good bust. Grandma will probably be forced to provide full time care for the granddaughter a lot sooner than she expected.
    Yeah, she was within half a second of killing the officer.

    The conduct of the officer throwing her to the ground was completely unacceptable. He could have killed her doing that.

    The department saying that was correct protocol neither makes it right or legal. Throwing drunk women's head into concrete may be a real power-trip thrill and allow officers to work off frustrations, but it is in my opinion it was a felony assault.

    You're the cop. You are in control. NEVER give the suspect control. You tend to live longer that way.
    Claiming that officer's life was in imminent danger is truly absurd. People who are terrified of even possibly ever getting hurt absolutely should NEVER be police officers.
