Civilisation can sometimes suck.
Because in our attempts to be ‘civilised’ we actually create situations that work against each other and cause, rather than prevent, harm.
A police officer will and can, by law, restrain someone that could or may cause harm to themselves or others.
But because they are not medically trained they may unwittingly cause a situation that will result in the restrained person dying or suffering unnecessarily.
So what? They probably deserved it. Else why were they restrained and arrested?
It’s a given that ignorance of the law is no defence. So, why then is lack of information or respect of a person’s medical condition justification for manslaughter or sadism?
Well. They have a uniform.
Oh yeah. That’s ok then.
