    Yes, indeed, that is a very tense moment, when a suspect prones himself, and keeps his hands hidden. Most of the times, it is just makes us have to really earn our pay for that shift, but there is always the possibility of something more nefarious. Thanks for the link. If I am ever called to task for Tasering a proned suspect, this will be part of my response. Of course, getting close enough to use a Taser puts one in a vulnerable spot.

    thats why we dont play around when scuffling with a suspect on the ground...especially if they reach for the waistband....knees to the ribs, punches to the ribs/back and other things that people immediately say is 'police brutality', etc is actually for our safety...they reach for the waistband and the waistband is the #1 hiding place for a dirtbag to carry/hide their handgun and when going hands-on its a tense few seconds until those cuffs are locked in place

    as others have said....this is all the more reason for people to not go hands-on if holding someone at gunpoint, we don't even do that....we get on the radio saying '1 at gunpoint at xxxxxx (location)' and wait for more people to go hands-on

    the website is great, lots of good info on there

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
