ANALYSIS: The Stephen Broderick arrest video — how do police safely detain people?

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Manor Police Department dash cam video shows exactly how Stephen Broderick, the suspect in the April 19 triple homicide in northwest Austin, was detained on Monday morning.

He was found walking along the road in between Manor and Elgin. There was no struggle when arrested, but he did have a loaded pistol on his waistband, that officers confiscated.

If you take a look at the video, you notice there’s a brief moment when Broderick’s right hand, which appears to be directly next to the pistol, is free — while officers work to handcuff him.
