Was the suspect frisked? Were the cuffs double locked?

I have no facts to support this, and yes I’m making a huge assumption, but I’d bet the officers were male, and did conduct a search that was more sensitive to the gender difference that it was to public/officer safety.

All I can say, if that was the case is, “but for the grace of God, there go I.”
