What happens to cops who use them?
Unless they are immediately fired, have their pensions stopped and arrested for assault or attempted murder, this is just for show.
NYC banned chokeholds in the 90s.
Eric Garner’s murderer remained on the NYPD 5 years after killing Garner on video.
Is there a difference? I have no idea. Legally there probably is.
How about putting your hands around someones neck is equal to lethal force. That covers all your bases.
Legally there probably is... but I'd guess there's probably a loophole too.
There will probably be a lot of those pesky bodycams malfunctioning too.
There will probably be a lot of blue silence too.
I'm not impressed BPD.
Not just that, but also implemented all of the 8 Can’t Wait policies and adopted the EPIC Program, which were all detailed in a very lengthy, well written statement yesterday.
Made me proud of the BPD.
Nevertheless the SJC put an officer back on the job who choked a guy in the middle of the North End.
What are the other one hundred police forces in the city of Boston going to do.? Isn't it time for every police department working in the city mandated to wear body cams.
Military Police training and a chokehold was never part of it. Airbase Ground Defense was when you trained to kill somebody.
And they love taking about how choke holds aren’t lethal force and if done properly can actually do more good than harm when it comes to force.
I would disagree but I’m not trained in any of that so I keep my mouth shut.
Just think about the delicate bones in your throat. Neck squeezing is contraindicated for submission.
Tons of choke hold demo videos on YouTube
This will upset Ted Nugent--for two reasons.
