"my reationary gap", that's a new one!!! They wouldn't have helped in this scenario as the mofo was already in cuffs. We were waiting for a van to transport him. It was as we were about to move him to the van that he lurched forward. I shall be in Crown Court next month and look forward to it!!Kingsg wrote:Maybe you should have been observing your reactionary gap and visual warning signals before getting so close ! just out of interest how would the handcuffs have stopped you getting headbutted?bluecopper wrote:One of my team mates got a right hook straight in the eye a couple of weeks ago. I have been headbutted recently. I would run out of fingers trying to count all the times I have needed handcuffs!!
I was merely stating that I have been assaulted, my colleague was punched in the eye and almost had a detached retina a few weeks ago. We get theatened and assaulted but the powers that be still say we are "non confrontational" I just want the equipment to do my job properly, is that really too much to ask?
