When the Florence police responded to calls of a disturbance, no one expected the response to turn violent. Knowing police were involved, it should have been a safe assumption. Police had been called to the neighborhood, responding to complaints of kids fighting a couple of times before, so the police showed up, ready to end the problem once and for all.
Officers always attempt to use technical sounding language to hide specific details of an incident. This officer ordered [redacted] to stop – [I] grabbed – by the left arm in an effort to control him, the report read. The report used standardized police catch phrases. In this case, [subject] pulled away and began to resist. The phrases braced, tensed and pulled away are taught to be used in all use-of-force reports, as well as statements indicating that the officer was in fear. Another line in the report reads as though the boy continued to resist throughout the incident, despite a video depicting quite the contrary.
