On April 19, 2013, reporter Jennifer LaRue attended a Spokane County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) in-service training class for an article she was writing for Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Living M...agazine. During the class, she agreed to have a Vascular Neck Restraint (VNR) demonstrated on her. In this video, you will see Sergeant Rich Gere ( SCSO's Defensive Tactics/Use of Force Expert) apply a VNR causing Ms. LaRue to temporarily lose consciousness. She regained consciousness quickly and was unharmed.
