“Whoa the berserker rage essay was fascinating. I’m a long time cop in a fairly violent metropolitan city. I’ve always thought myself to be empathetic in nature but when I look back on some use of forces I was duty bound to do, it baffles me. Like it wasn’t really me doing that. Or I displayed much more strength than I believe I’m capable of in the weightlifting room. Conversely, I have absolutely experienced (on the receiving end) what’s known as “excited delerium.” Cops always know it’s ED when 911 callers mention the person is naked and “he’s growling like a dog.” There’s never enough cops to subdue a man like that. It’s unbelievable the strength they have. Long ago we had no idea what caused them to so often stop breathing after being handcuffed. Awareness is out there now but almost no formal training for cops on how to physically handle before/after contact. Mostly on the job training. Anyways, great article.”
