These restraints are notsupposed to be a long term use; they are intended for emergency, multi-person issues where you have to restrain a number of people but the heavy duty equipment is not available - if you have 20 people to restrain, you may not have 20 cuffs which can range $50 each. Too expensive for that many cuffs for an officer and some departments. These need to be used sparingly and you have to thoroughly search and supervise. Can't always have the best of everything.

I agree with the fact that they should have been tightened all the way. It looks like he could slip his hands out of them already, without the need of using a pin.

Plus, I've seen cops use regular heavy duty zip-ties more than I've seen these.

Indeed, tighten them tightly and put them behind your back. Now, regardless if you have a pin at your disposal removal of the cuffs will be a real hassle, especially if you have to do it quickly in a magic act.

They really should superglue the palms of potential suspects together instead since the chance that people are going to carry around solvants aren't all that high :P
