So I guess the search for weapons was bypassed. If the suspect can kill himself he can kill you or your partner. SEARCH!

You Blues are lucky!! Once you hook 'em up you search them or don't go home at end of shift. Maybe training has gone PC, I don't know but somebody got lax and should have a little less ass by now. Blues, Stay Safe.

An intersting watch, but it does not prove much- there are too many variables. How exactly was the suspect cuffed? Palms facing together or away from eachother? How tight were the cuffs? Enough to wriggle the wrist around and slide up the arm? How flexible was the suspect? I guess one could nitpick the thing apart, but the bottom line is the officer is lucky to be living...maybe it's time to throw in the towel. We all have our own "Oh Sh#t" moments, and to varying degrees, but this one tops most of 'em.
