Spleen surgery police officer force 'not excessive'A police officer who injured a suspect who later needed his spleen removed was not excessively forceful, the police watchdog has said.
Ryan McManus and two others - Ryan Stanley and Paul Shields - said Greater Manchester Police used excessive force when arresting them in September 2010.
The watchdog also said it was concerned officers had stopped a recording of the operation while the trio were detained.
Greater Manchester Police has declined to comment on the findings.
McManus, of Salford; Shields, of Cheetham Hill; and Stanley, of Salford; and another man later admitted conspiracy to rob and were jailed.
Greater Manchester Police started a surveillance operation on the men on 10 September, after the men were seen paying close attention to a cash-in-transit security van while in a stolen car the previous day.
Firearms units struck after the men were seen following the van donning gloves and hoods, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said.
The firearms officers admitted using force, as it was not known whether the men were armed, the watchdog said.
A sledgehammer and screwdriver were later recovered from the vehicle.

so yall have bleeding heart liberals across the pond as well.
"A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."
(just stole this one hope you don't mind)
The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

"Officer, you have some X- spleening to do."
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
