The look on the cop's faces are chilling, and very matter of fact, as if this was standard routine.
I wonder how much vacation these sadistic bastards will get.

Hopefully the government will take measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future, by restricting how and when video recordings may be made in public.

This is bullshiat.  The truth can be found in the recent statement by the departmental press officer and liason to the FOP, Jayce Preston.  According to Preston, the large deputy on the right was not choking the suspect but merely affixing the new PerpTrack device to the back of the man's shirt.  A prior press release by the manufacturer notes that the new RFID device, which has been made available to law enforcement with the help of federal grants from DHS, clips easily to suspect's clothing and is designed to help officers in riot and crowd control crises keep track of arrested suspects.

The young man had been partying after a week of finals.  Though understandable, you have to be mindful of your neighbors.  Apparently he and his fellow students did not and the police were called.  As such, it started the chain of events that caused the young man to be accidentally asphyxiated to the point of unconsciousness.

As much as farkers like to browbeat the boys in blue, this would never would had happened if they had kept the noise down.

There are easier ways to choke someone out, and choking a handcuffed prisoner is just damn wrong. Seriously. WTF?

I've worked with cops before doing security, and I get that there are folks who are fed up with getting calls, who are just fed up with the job in general, and some are angry as heck at just about anything due to the nature of the work, but that is no excuse. It makes the job a lot harder for good cops, and even mediocre cops in general.

There ARE times when you choke someone out. When someone is violent and a danger to themselves or others, rendering them unconscious without dislocating their jaw or bruising ribs or causing damage to the sternum is preferable. Cutting off blood to the brain is a delicate sort of thing though, and you have to exercise a lot of restraint, because you can wind up doing a lot more serious damage than if you just waled on them. A handcuffed suspect, with two officers on either side? Not exactly a danger to others or himself.

Yeah. F*ck these guys. That's not to say all cops, but these guys in particular, because it's cops like them that make life a damn sight harder for others, and for damn sure on the public in general.

It's always fun to see folks trot these sorts of things out, when it's dirty hippies or frat boys getting brought down, but when it's valuable job creators or ranchers of means, then it's a travesty--or if a minister is perp walked it's religious persecution.

It is not one of my best.  I also did not want to come out of the gate too strong.  Simple and somewhat unfinished sometimes works best.

You guys don't get the warrior code. When a young pink who's handcuffed threatens you, you choke him as an example to others.
 
2014-04-27 07:14:26 PM  
I thought chokeholds/pressure points have fallen out of favor in terms of police policy due to the risk of injury or death rendering someone unconscious.  It doesn't look as bad as baton strikes to extremities or a taser, but it is much more dangerous.  Photographs can be deceptive and if he was resisting as they transferred cuffs it could explain a use of force but with several officers there it would seem to be cause to take the suspect to the ground rather than render them unconscious via a chokehold.  A video would be better evidence as we can't see what is happening between frames and it is easy to cherry pick photos to make your case for abuse, but from what we have here it does appear this officer should maybe consider retiring and may be expecting a visit regarding a potential criminal complaint for assault under color of authority as well as a civil suit.

Thread two: "Cops are the only protection you need, turn in any/all self-defense items: knives, guns, boards with nails in them, even the club with lumps in it the old guy is rockin' Bedrock style."
Threat three: "Cops need to only respect laws that are good, they shouldn't bother following laws I don't like."

I just don't understand this rash of police criminality we're having. How did this never happen for all these hundreds of years and bam. Now they're like this.

Only seems to happen in the presence of cameras. Are cameras the problem? Maybe we should get rid of them.

this same shiat happened to me when I was about 17 because the cops didn't like that I wasn't intimidated, so they slammed me on the hood and started choking me (cuffed, not resisting). Their supervisor broke it up. I know a few fine cops, but overall I say fark them with a rusty saw.

The problem is that these things now happen so often they're not newsworthy, at last nowhere near the scale they should be.

Typing "Tennessee officer choked arrested student " into google and the only mainstream news sites with this story are the Daily Mail (from a country where police killing people on a regular basis is still considered controversial) and "msn.foxsports". The rest of the coverage seems to be blogs.

When I was in college, I once saw a kid get the tar beat out of him for a noise complaint call. OK, not for the noise complaint, but for swinging on the officers in question. He got cuffed, and put into the back, and somehow he didn't get choked out for the whole mess.
