    I watched the video. Those making any comparisons to George Floyd are misguided. The interaction was calm throughout until the arrest. Even then it was relatively calm and measured and controlled. I detected no hint of malice toward the guy from the officers. An investigation certainly needs to be done regarding all of the actions of the officers while subduing him. Perhaps they should have rolled him over sooner or something. I would leave that to the investigators to determine nd what corrections or discipline needs to be made, but they were aware and seemingly trying to not harm the guy. Unfortunately, they did not succeed.

    I think the one comparison I would make is the officers' overreaction to the man just standing on the sidewalk and talking to himself. It could have been handled better by mental health care people, not the police. And all they had to do was ask him to move along, and he was chill through most of the contact with the police. Arresting him was unnecessary.
