Note that at 2:16 the cuff is shown and it has measurements that let the officer document the degree to which the cuff was closed, and that it was not overtightened. This is evidently a department which is extremely careful to document actions and act properly.

This incident should have never have happened! Why in the hell didn't the responding leo's place the second pair of cuffs on the suspect before removing the first? Standard cuffing procedure teaches to cuff with key holes up so you can easily unlock first pair on top, just place second pair on bottom first.

You know, fellows, that you CAN put a second set of handcuffs on before removing the first ones. Really. Just make sure they go above or below the ones that are already on, depending on whether the keyholes are facing up or down.
