Do you think the use of physical force on someone was unreasonable? Radio

Definition of Unreasonable Force: "Reasonable force" is the amount of effort required by police to compel an unwilling person to comply. So "unreasonable force" is any unnecessary or excessive force beyond what's required to do that. Example of Unreasonable Force: A woman drove into a road construction area by accident. An officer directing traffic approached her and yelled at her to get off the road. He then put his hand through her open window and twisted her arm until she moved her car.
