All I could hear on the video was a lot of unprofessional laughing at this scene. For most of the incident over 3/4ths of the airbag was no where near where the suspect could fall on it. I was surprised he landed on the air bag at all. Doesn't anybody talk anymore? Talking is the first level of use of force. Really good Officers can talk anybody out of anything but nobody seems to even try anymore. It's all taser, grab, choke, handcuff and drag off or pepper spray, choke, hand cuff and drag off. I am guessing but just initiating dialog isn't any longer in the use of force continuum, I can see why the public doesn't trust the police anymore. Everybody is in so much of a hurry to grind people into submission that no one takes the time to talk first.
