dude, you should always hide your lockpick (yes one word.) in your rectum!
UK cops also back-stack if they have to, but usually when you arrest someone, they`re fairly compliant (only drunks, the desperate, well-armed, or the terminally stupid will try to resist arrest). If you have reason to believe that they will be a danger to you, or themselves, then back-stack, but it`s easy to control a prisoner with a front stack, while you`re holding the rigid bar. Just a twist and they`re in agony...(ahem!) ;-).
Mind you, if the s**t is hitting the fan, then whatever works is fine as long as the cuffs go on. I`ve been witness to some very clumsy cuffings, but only cos the prisoner struggled.
...and any UK cop who stands directly in front of a prisoner is asking for trouble.
I always figured the police here in the states cuffed behind the back because it`s safer for the cops since you`re not facing them directly (can`t land a blow with your fists, head butt them, et cetera especially when they pile on top of you to get you down.), makes it difficult to really reach anything in pockets and what have you and it makes things awkward and slow if you want to run.
Randythefool: It`s easier & more comfortable to have the cuffs in front. Most UK cops use the front stack position. Hands in front, one over the other (fold your arms, then move your arms an inch apart, and so your wrists are above eachother)
UK Issue cuffs have a rigid hard rubber centre. Not a chain. - Big advantages are that if someone kicks off while you`ve only got one cuff on, you can control them more easily.... ;-)
UK cops are also trained to put the cuffs over the soft part between the hand & wrist - comfortable, but hurts like hell if you try to bend your wrist (as in try to pick cuffs)
Still, a cool video if you ever find yourself with a pair of Smith & Wesson handcuffs, not surrounded by cops, and have half a bobby pin to hand.... :-P
Only if you have a sexual fetish for handcuffs
Yes! Hide whatever stash of illegal material you posses. The Police will be kicking down the door in 5... 4... 3... 2...
If youre still there I fail as a psychic.
How often does he get arrested?
I`ll just have to remember to wear a bobby pin or two in my hair. Thank goodness I`m female, or else that might look a little weird. Unless you`re my former roommate.
Nope, was thinking the same thing.
Thats what I thought too. :O
either that or you`re phucked
i should know :(
But you`d be surprised at the things that cops THINK they notice. Like, my friend`s car is covered in 3 layers of trash inside. They pulled her over and searched her car, pulling out what they thought was shrooms but was really a bag of moldy old Taco Bell she had shoved under her seat.
