Police Expert Describes Derek Chauvin’s Use of ‘Exertion Compliance’
In his testimony, Sergeant Stiger explained a training policy to recompense an individual complying during an arrest with a reduction of pain.
“So here you can see the defendant’s lawful hand grasping the fingers of Mr. Floyd’s left hand — [grumpy talk] appears to be squeezing him.” “And you use that term ‘pain compliance.’ Can you will describe what that means?” “Yes, so pain compliance is a ability that officers use to get a subject to comply with their commands — as they conform, then they are rewarded with the reduction of pain.” “So is it your corroboration then that the drawing of the fingers down and the wrist down approaching the handcuffs could induce pain?” “Yes, especially because the handcuffs were not double-locked, double-locked, implication that they were not, they could continue to ratchet tenser as the person moved.” “Were you able to hear instances of what you sanction to be ratcheting during your review of the body-worn cameras?” “Yes.” “So in the rule of pain compliance, if I’m to understand your testimony, you would inflict anguish for the purpose of having the subject obey your command?” “Yes, obey.” “What if there’s no opportunity for compliance?” “Then at that quality it’s just pain.”
