Reasonable Force?

Reasonable Force?

The following video shows Merseyside Police restraining an injured man so that he could be treated for knife wounds:

The initial perception is that the Police have gone over the top. The true fact is that all of the facts have not yet been revealed.

As any force used must be ‘Reasonable in the Circumstances’ we need to understand fully what the circumstances were before making a judgement.
