I know there are going to be plenty of people here shortly saying how the officers did something wrong... but from what I can see, they cuffed him properly and this guy was just a persistent little tweaker. He worked hard at getting out of those cuffs. Hope he spends some time in cell. His girlfriend too.

When are we going to have A/C put in the back of police cars? This way we can keep the partition closed. This is not the first time this has happened this year. Although it looks like he was cuffed properly, we have to check on persons in the backseat often. He displayed a great deal of movement the six minutes he was in there. If we can channel cool air to the back of vans and SUV's I am sure we can do so in a cruiser. Yes I understand older cars would need to be retrofitted or replaced with age, just my two cents.

Not knowing the entire story but in the manner the article reads, shame on the officer/trooper who left the radio car unattended. Rule number one is never leave the suspect alone and without supervision.

Place the handcuffs through the belt and double lock them and don't leave the keys in the ingition dumbass.
