The "donkey kick," a controversial maneuver used in the fatal confrontation between inmate Benites Sichiro and several jailers, has been banned from use in the Spokane County Jail.

"The 'donkey kick' is no longer allowed, and the term is never to be used," said Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich, adding "when you see a problem, fix it."
