14-Year-Old Girl Punched by Police - Excessive or Not?

The gap between what police departments deem "necessary use of force" and what the public perceives as "acceptable use of force" has never been so big. In an attempt to close the gap, Ryron and Rener analyze the video that recently surfaced of a Florida incident where a young teenage girl resisted arrest and punched multiple times by police officer.
If anyone has contact with the officers involved in the incident, please have them contact us at: www.GracieUniversity.com/GST

    Even if they knew jiu jitsu they’ll still abuse there power it’s not there knowledge like that was a 14 year old girl how much knowledge do you need to arrest a 14 year old girl they did that because they simply could

    The best way to handle a 14 year old is at home before they get into situations like this.

    The the way to fight a wrongful arrest is after the arrest is over. Take it to court and have your effing story straight. Just play along until you're out of thier custody. No one has to get hurt.

    One of those charts they showed had spray in the passive resistance category and some just had compliance resistance right to assaultive basically teaching that if they keep physically resisting they could only be assaulting you. There changing it for the better.

    Great video. Excellent tactics. May I respectfully encourage your instructors to incorporate more verbal judo training? Based on 30 years of teaching federal and state law enforcement most officers have very poor verbal judo skill. Too many times a deaf mute is needless beat up even shot dead under the false assumption of non-compliance. The same is true with the millions of subjects struggling with psychological issues. Verbal judo training is a must. --- There is no need to punch the hell out of a 14 year old frightened child. Simply pin that child down exactly where they are and restrict their ability to strike back. Now, you begin to have a de-escalation talk! Why talk? Because this is the only to assess and evaluate if the subject can even hear and understand what's going on. The moment police officers start the beat down, the subject's 'fight-or-flight response' will immediately kick in. Things will get ugly very quick. Very judo could have averted this and many other similar scenarios.

    And be carefully with use of the term, "threat". A subject appearing to be non-compliant is not a threat, but rather a security risk. There's a huge difference between a risk and a threat. Recognizing those differences and understanding the two concepts helps the officer better choose an appropriate response.

    The Police are always right. Whether they taze a 81 year old grandma, shoot a hobo with mental problems, taze a teenage boy until he's brain dead then slam his head on a curb, suffocate a 65 yr old man to death on vacation a beach in Miami, or beat little kids like they were adults. Good job making society a safer place. Always good to know the Police are there to help.

    I think all police officers should have to wrestle for at least 4 hours a week and do BJJ for at least 1 hour Wrestling teaches them to stay on top and control which is really all cops need even if the officer gets into an actual fight, but the BJJ teaches them to choke and defend chokes or transition into joint locks if the opponent proves too much of an advantage over the officer The officer should never have to strike. Ever

    I have a suggestion: What if police created a ALL WHITE UNIFORM unit in every single department that DO NOT CARRY FIREARMS nor weapons of any kind and are called on to deal with every single situation. They can not touch the suspect, they will film online everything they do and say as well as what they hear and is done they can only TALK to people and explain what is going on. As well as politely ask people to follow then to the police station for questioning. GET THAT HIGHLY PUBLICIZED as well as the fact that if one of those officer gets verbally assaulted, physically assaulted or worse the consequences would be 10 times worst that if it was a normal police officer. I know that would not be as good for business as your ideas, but it would be a much more civilized way to deal with social problems at the same time that it would make society and police feel much more respected and working together with one another.

    17:40 It is clear you come from a privileged background, that you have education and your overall body language suggests you have been accepted in society and feel that way. When on the other hand someone feels that the color of their skin, their hair, their people and their existence is not accepted is hated on, you will find much harder to speak, talk, walk, dress in a manner that suggest you feel accepted. Marginalizing people makes them marginals. Take a dog and give him plenty love and attention, while take his brother and distrust him and be always cagey around it and see what their behavior will be. We don't even need to make the experiment to know. So come on Ryron the whole is a tad deeper than that. I know you guys mean good. But you are not factoring all the elements in this equation.

    17:00 I have family and friends who are police officers and I understand they are up against a lot, but I think what black poor people are up against is way worst. So if I were to choose a punishment to my worst enemy I would never turn him into a police officer, instead I would turn him into a black poor man. Understand?

    According to the Police chart there 3:28 Subject actions will change from Passive Resistance to Active Resistance only because the Officer initiated contact. Therefore the officer response to Passive Resistance is actually escalating the situation. Physical contact should only be used if the officer was in physical danger himself then go all BJJ on the person, but he can be filming the whole thing and tell the person that footage of non compliance will be used against them for prosecuting purposes. Convince them verbally that they should behave differently in a calm, collected and respectful fashion. The problem is that POLICE OFFICER are all about their EGOs and their AUTHORITY and they turn CAVEMAN every time they see a person calmly non complying. They wish they were respected but they don't give respect how could they possibly expect respect back? If the person is white is one thing, but if they are black RACIST STATUS QUO liberate them to use violence.

    but the problem isn't just complying ,but that cops selectively choose who they want to take it from the lowest form of force to the max base on their racist tendencies and bigotry. if that was a white 14 year old girl that would have never happen..we see it all the time they shoot a 13 year old boy on sight but they take in white mass shooters with no problem.. i love your videos as a juvenile office. i watch your videos all the time for tactics to deal with assaultive young ppl. but i feel like your dont see the statistics that cops are more likely to be aggressive with people of color than white people.

    Fantastic video and perspective from both sides. There are huge gaps between police & the citizens they serve. Citizens do not consider the fact that police work is run like a business which is confined and restricted by budget, politics and perception. Whether a citizen is guilty or innocent of a crime police are playing catch up on every scene they arrive to. One of the biggest escalations in use of force issues is pride and ego on both sides (citizens and LEO's alike). First, police across the country have been demonized for many years (whether justified or not) this lends itself to a psychological bias against all law enforcement which creates an automatic defensiveness in the attitudes of citizens and law enforcement alike. When both parties come into a situation defensive toward one another it eliminates the ability and likelihood of both parties being able to cooperate with one another. Second, law enforcement have limited resources within their departments when it comes to training unless they are with a large department that can devote a team of officers to have an in-house training department. The Officers who have the time and money train with law enforcement contractors or trainers on their own time, but unfortunately most Officers won't train in their own time and their own dime. Many Officers are being trained in very old tactics and are being taught to be "tool dependent" (what's on their duty belt). If trainers like the GST team would allow outside (contract) law enforcement trainers who are not affiliated with a specific department we could get this training out to more agencies which (in my opinion) should be the goal. Hopefully, this is something the GST team will consider so we (trainers/Instructors) can get this valuable training out to as many Officers as possible.
