I’ll vote for that!
No chokeholds allowed.
Watch out for hair splitting. There’s a technical difference between a choke hold and a strangulation hold.
Thank you Mr. Alcaraz for a balanced and non-radical thought on solving this problem.
A self-defense exception, I should think.
Someone posted a pic on Instagram yesterday of a nurse holding a sign:
“NURSES DEAL WITH DRUGGED, DRUNK & COMBATIVE PATIENTS ON A DAILY BASIS, BUT I NEVER HAD TO KILL A SINGLE ONE TO GET THEM UNDER CONTROL.”
My sis, a retired nurse, agrees. She can’t understand why cops haven’t learned de-escalation & other techniques 100-lb. nurses use regularly to get 200-lb. crazies in hand.
Loving this whole series!
