In a speech to law enforcement officers on Friday the president embraced physicality against suspects in custody.
he discussed how law enforcement officers should handle suspects in custody.
‘And when you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon — you just see them thrown in rough — I said please don’t be too nice’ the president said.
‘Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head you know – the way you put their hand over?
Like don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody — don’t hit their head.
I said you can take the hand away okay?’ he added – as he was greeted with applause and laughter.
