Have you ever been around a pepper spray discharge? Just being in 2-4 feet of the discharge will be enough to make you want to run away.
Being grabbed by several people, a spray or two would be enough for ANY arm-bar or full-nelson hold on you--and allow you to run like hell.
If they pull guns, then they are using "lethal" weapons in response to a "non lethal" self-defense tactic. Won't look to good in a court of
law--especially in this guy's situation where he was clearly being "roughly treated" and quite possibly afraid for his life.
A guy where I live died in a bar because the security took him to the ground and sat/positioned themselves on top of him. He suffocated. You're damn
right i'd fear for my LIFE if I had 6 overzealous "rent-a-cops" with a "rambo" attitude twisting and making me feel powerless. What laws have I
broken? Social mores? Yes, social laws of "decent behavior" perhaps...
None of this warrants being treated this way.
