You mean the way the police SAY they behave.

Rear-cuffed suspects committing suicide by gunshot while seated in the back of an RMP?

"Excited delirium", a condition that only seems to manifest itself in people who have just been arrested? (Yes, Taser International did give us their "trainjng" on how to handle patients who have been Tased. That was the very first time I ever heard the term "excited delirium", and guess what? That's still not a REMSCO protocol in NYC yet.)

"Flailing" one's arms...why do people only seen to "flail" their arms when they're under arrest?

It seems that the police in America have a lot of trouble taking (overwhelmingly Black) suspects into custody without killing them. What happened over the years? I had many a patient in police custody who fought us like a gored bull, but somehow we and the cops never actually killed anybody. My point is, the police know how to do this, even with suspects who are totally fucking dusted. So why have they apparently forgotten?
