This is all disturbing stuff but you are missing two points: a) what exactly happened to motivate him being taken to the hospital (not jail) b) overwhelming force is bad but it can also be what *prevents* situations from being disastrous. Leaving people wiggle room during confrontations is risky which is why police tend to avoid it. Also, remember that the American heritage includes spending hundreds of thousands of lives to *end* slavery.
