SOTT – In March, a video was posted to YouTube showing NYPD macing a man and then restraining him in what the uploader described as a “body bag,” zipping it all the way over the arrested man’s head. The bag, which we learned is called an EDP bag (but sometimes referred to as a “burrito”), is used to restrain people who are emotionally disturbed, and there don’t appear to be any guidelines for the NYPD specifying EDP usage. The New York Times has a piece out today on the restraining devices, and reports that they were used 122 times between January 1st and April 20th in 2016. That comes out to more than once a day.
