Chris over at Martial Development asked for specific techniques the Officer in the previous post could have used to maintain control over the teenage girl he was trying to give a jaywalking ticket to. The Cop lost control and hit one of the girls in the face, and generally blew the whole scene into a major fiasco.
Here's the video again:
This is a supposedly "trained" officer dealing with two teenage girls one at a time.
I'm sorry, but I contend that this Cop is miserably under trained. There is a failure in public relations, communication, and he resorts to punching the girl. He is so ill-prepared that if it was a more serious time and place, he could have been rushed by the crowd and disarmed.
Now, I know that no amount of restraint would have looked nice, but efficient grappling would have been so much more professional. Chris from Martial Development requested alternative techniques. I don't have time to stage an elaborate reenactment of the scene with the Cop, but here's a couple of examples.
These are merely demos, but any single technique can be used to restrain, provide pain compliance, and in many cases leave one hand free to operate a radio and call for back-up or whatever:
Or in this case, not using the striking but concentrate on locking the elbow/shoulder, something the Cop had many opportunities to achieve:
Now, neither of these drills replicate the attempted arrest scene, but I submit them as more efficient ways for the police to deal with mild resistance without resorting to hitting a teenage girl in the face.
