I think it would be better to leave them physically unharmed but strip them completely of all their clothing and weapons. It would humiliate them, leave them unable to physically harm protestors, and would be a very clear message that they are powerless against the will of the people. How many men clawing at their clothing would it take? Maybe 5? Strip them completely nude and make them walk home.

During the US revolution, they did very similar things. They'd strip em naked and tie them backwards on a Donkey, and then scare the donkey so it bolted. Literally ran them out of town. If they were a real dick they'd get tarred and feathered as well. Something that is far more brutal than it sounds.

Yeah, as a kid watching WB cartoons it just sounds funny, but irl you would have second and third degree burns under that tar

Like that video from the UK where citizens handcuffed a cop to a street sign with his own handcuffs and the cop was crying lol

I was thinking the same, except hand cuff them to a pole.

That's good too. Both would send a similar message, but I like mine since it's more violent.

Assuming the question wasn't rhetorical... From personal experience with patients high on various substances or having violent psych issues, in a pinch 4 can do it very effectively. Each grabs a limb. The two on the legs lift up throwing them off balance as the two on the arms guide them to the ground as they fall. Then to keep them down, weight is placed on the long bones with a hand pressing down on the elbows and knees to immobilize them. Size doesn't much matter, it's mostly gravity, leverage, and co-ordination. Then it's as simple as using a pair of $3 EMT shears to cut all that crap off. A fifth person with a shield and padding would come in handy as a distraction if they're swinging a baton. Anyway, that's been my go-to technique to keep everyone safe. YMMV if confronted by a violent individual with delusions of grandeur.
