Well, you know that he really wasn't resisting arrest by pulling his arm away while being handcuffed. If the VPD officer had just politely asked him to turn away and give his arm back to them, I'm sure he would have complied. It's not like he had just given them any reason to suspect he could be a problem. You know, like mouthing off or anything. Oh, wait . . .

The part I love:
"Why did you punch me?"
"Because you were resisting. I told you not to resist."

Should be a short investigation. (One can only hope.)

He didn't seem to be in too much discomfort once the cuffs were on, for someone who doesn't "bend that way."

Remember this is Vancouver though, probably the most cop hating city in Canada IMO. I'd hate to see if this guy gets raked over the coals for this, but nothing surprises me now.

If he was reacting solely in emotion (as people are saying) would he really be so calm and professional during and after the strike?

See, I don't bend that way either, to put cuffs on. What I have found to help my situation, is to not be a shithead. Seems to work rather well, and I haven't had any discomfort.

Have any of you read the comments below the video posting in the sun...? I'm new on this Forum and it has already opened my eyes to a lot of the ignorance and utter lack of gratitude that some civilians have for those who protect Canada from both within and out. Admittedly when you watch the video and the first five seconds involve what looks like a "random act of violence" although being from Vancouver I have had nothing but positive experiences with our officers. It would be interesting to see what the first few minutes of the video held as I'm sure there was a little more to the story; or... maybe the officer in question was just having a terrible day.

I would humbly suggest that you come in here and re-read your comments once you are in training and were shown the photos of the officer who was killed by the assailant who had cuffs on one hand and managed to break free, driving the other cuff through the officer's eye hole into his brain. Once you are trained on controlling suspects, distraction strikes and the potential deadly effects of an uncontrolled suspect during cuffing ... THEN come back on here and armchair-quarterback others on the "day" they were having when you weren't there.

It's bad enough officers get judged by every dumbass in the world who can watch part of a Youtube video without seeing the whole story - they don't need to also get judged by applicants.

Well...
Is a punch in the face really appropriate. ..
I mean... I've handcuffed countless combative individuals and have never "punched" any of them.

A punch in the face works very well. Anyone can do it. You don't need any special training. It is extremely effective in taking the fight out of a person.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.
