All actions are viewed in light of Graham v Connor. Articulated facts need to be present within any use of force. Do I remove tools from officers hands in a blanket policy or is discretion allowed using Graham v Connor. Am I increasing the tension of the situation and causing a violent reaction. I reference the US Court of Appeals 6th CCT Hill v Miracle which involved the use of a Taser on a subject having a diabetic reaction.
