  1. I call BS to using soft language like “distraction strikes” these were down right punches to the head designed to knock him out….the police need to be held accountable to brutality…it’s been going on way too long, and they seem to think that it’s okay…

    • It’s absurd. Who comes up with terms like “distraction strikes” when they mean “vicious blows to the head”?

  2. I’m thinking that there’s other techniques for dealing with this & similar situations.
    Such as:
    Hose him. Fire engines can do that.
    I’ve done that before, subject controlled & cuffed humanly. So what if UPD got wet.
    Throw a baton at a subject.
    Deploy a K-9.
    Immediately request a mental health negotiator.

    • To all Police: Please learn and practice Aikido. This naked man could easily have been safely restrained and detained using these nonviolent but extremely effective methods and techniques. Aikido training is available in Ukiah at the Ukiah Aikido dojo. It’s safer for all parties including the officers. In this video, they look unskilled, untrained, downright brutal and ridiculous.

  3. “…numerous distraction strikes to the head…” – NewSpeak is here! And it’s doubleplus good, eh?

    What police like this in this country need is numerous Pink Slips in their termination pay envelopes, followed by numerous Spatial Diversions to the nearest lockup, where they can await Societal Reassessment Deliberations, and then finally be transported to various Lithic Confinement Facilities for a stretch of 10-20 years for each incident.

    Just a modest proposal.
