Officers placed him into a WRAP restraint device to prevent him from injuring himself, any of the officers, while preventing any damage he might cause. The WRAP is a soft restraint device, which immobilizes a combative person but keeps them sitting upright to prevent any issues with positional asphyxiation.

  1. Should have sent Thorpe and not police, I’m sure he would have handled the problem. Matter of fact that whole group should form there own SWAT. Blue Lives Matter. MAGA

  2. So, I guess my legit question was censured, but all these other comments are welcomed. I only asked about an event that happened the other day on A st by Jack in the box. Lmao you said you wanted to steer clear of drama and bullshit, but that is all you let through on the comments. if I wrote something degrading the Black Community you would have definitely posted it. I asked why didn’t you post about the traffic stop with the bleeding black man on the ground on A st. Why did you not post that story or respond to my question? The reason is because you want ratings and the only way you can get it is through bigotry and for racist ass people to spread hate on the comments. You are a coward and a shitty journalist.
