I’m no police deescalation trainer.. but..

“Two officers who responded to the incident used a stun gun, pepper spray and a baton on Mr Burgess who had one leg, suffered from dementia and used a wheelchair.”

Obviously the carers didn’t shoot or taser him in the time period before the police arrived. No, they managed the situation - dementia is tricky and paranoia can be strong.

However… literally grab a blanket and throw it over the guy. Movement/mobility limited, vision limited, knife disabled.. and literally wait him out. Dementia violence doesn’t last forever.. it’s largely in bursts. It’s often easy to distract them as part of deescalation using food or other means (like younger children) as well.

The best same nursing home story happened in Australia recently too. Dementia. Patient used a walker. Somehow got a knife (most likely a bread knife.. a bread knife wielded by an 80-90 year old with mobility limitations. If that scares our tough and highly trained police forces… fuck me. Give the badges to nursing home staff who deal with dementia bursts of aggression daily - not retards who think a badge gives them meaning in life and a license to kill.
