When i first saw this i was instantly pissed at the cop. Then i read the article which stated she was on coc aine and oxycotton and was arrested for 2 hit and runs. She got what she deserved. Now she can't drive around high and crash into sh*t anymore. Come on, if it was your car she hit you would be pissed. What if she crashed into someone you cared about and killed them? How would you feel then? So in my opinion, one more useless drug addict bites the dust. I also second the motion that she deserves a Darwin Award. But the cop could of caught her if he wanted to. he was just lazy.

No. Her arms could not have broken her fall even if she was handcuffed in front.

Man you don't know what you are talking about at all. It as actually impossible for that to happen with her arms behind her back, but it IS possible if they are in front of her.
They would have to break in half for them to be behind her back and end up behind her head. This is a pathetic attemp to make it the victims fault.

however you deal with an incident -there is a posibility of unintended consequences - being " rugby tackled " by a 300lb bloke is going to generate a greater impact force than tazering
the bottom line is - attempting to runaway once handcuffed is pretty dammed stupid
and although it will offend many , ms Maudsley deserves a darwin award
Orange County district attorney Tony Rackauckas gave a detailed account of the events during a press conference on September 21, 2011. Using digital audio recording devices carried by the officers, surveillance video from a pole camera at the Fullerton Transportation Center, and other evidence, Rackauckas was able to show that Thomas did comply with orders from Officer Ramos, who had put on latex gloves and asked Thomas "Now see my fists? They are getting ready to # you up". Rackauckas went on to describe how Thomas begged for his life, before being beaten to death.
It is much easier to run with your hands cuffed in front of you than behind you.
