In the immortal words of Mike Tyson:

Pretty sure you guys are trained to watch for "plans" forming.

Just sayin'.... A punch in the face seems a little, well... I'd expect that from a bouncer, not from a "trained" police officer.

As a point of clarification.... In corrections we don't even call a punch in the face "a punch in the face".
We refer to it as a "distraction".

;)
Admit nothing.
Deny everything.
Make counter accusations...

Oh we flower it up too. But let's call a spade a spade.
Like I said, a punch is something everyone knows. You don't have to be taught it, there are no special skills to learn, and no one likes to get punched in the face. It works the majority of the time. Which is more than I can say for OC spray.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

Don't hurt yourself getting down off your high horse. Good luck to you explaining to a Judge that you distracted someone by distracting them to the face.

Most people on here could frankly care less what you expect from a police officer in their reports, write your own reports however you want. At the end of the day, using cool terms in a report means SFA when it comes down to explaining to a Judge exactly what you meant by it when you're on the stand.

You gotta believe you needed to distract him in order to make the move work. Call it a "softening blow" or a "stun". Been in front of a lot of judges, depends on the judge of course, but they get it.
Sometimes... you get on here, and just know, you're dealing with "that guy." All your efforts to be, and sound reasonable, are useless. And there are a lot of those guys on blueline.
