Where is the mistreatment?
The mistretment is in spraying pepper spray into the face of a restrained person. of such capacity that it was only to be used on crowds in large open areas.
Then placing a mask on the man’s face and leaving it there to keep the pepper spray in his lungs and on his face, while he is begging and saying he can’t breathe, for way too long. There was no need for this.

If you can’t recognize this is torture and unnecessary, or even “cruel and unusual punishment” then you are a very mentally sick person.
And/or a thug law enforcement type.
What the officers did was wrong.
“Where is the mistreatment?”
Are you kidding me? Where is the mistreatment? The young man has some serious mental issues, and you have 5 guards with four dressed in SWAT clothing with the CAPTAIN spraying mace in his face from a few feet that was intended for several yards. If you have never been exposed to tear gas or mace you have no idea how much he was burning then putting the face mask on him, no wonder he couldn’t breath.
The CAPTAIN was only given a month suspension. The boy was put a serious health risk just so the CAPTAIN could show who was in charge. If it had been my son and I saw this, the CAPTAIN would have no place to hide.
