Del Toro: Ain’t no thing but a ‘Double Chicken Wing”
February 19, 2014
I've just read a column about Summit County Deputy's rendering a highly intoxicated man under arrest using the "Double Chicken Wing" technique. Could SDN elaborate on this using diagrams, direct unedited quotes from the arrestee, or even a YouTube video of the dreaded "Double Chicken Wing"?
Personally, when I've been arrested, I have experienced the "Makin' Bacon" Taser-technique, the "Tears in Heaven" high-powered, pepper-spray-technique, the "Yo, Quiero Taco-Bell" technique when being tossed out of fast restaurants after midnight, and even the "Phi-Slama-Jamma" arrest/search technique in years back when marijuana was still illegal.
But the "Double Chicken Wing" technique? How would Antonin Scalia and the Supreme Court interpret this as being highly (pardon the pun) unconstitutional under the 4th, 5th, and 420th amendments to the U.S. Constitution?
