‘He Can't Breathe!': People Call 911 to Record Cops Allegedly Choking Guy on Roadside

Following the death of George Floyd in 2020, officials across the country moved to ban  the employment  of carotid restraints —  the sort  of restraint  that always  renders  an individual  unconscious by restricting the flow of blood to the brain by compressing  the edges  of the neck where the carotid arteries are located. In California, the practice was banned statewide. “At  the tip  of the day, the carotid hold that literally  is intended   to prevent  people’s blood from flowing into their brain – that has no place  from now on  in 21st-century practices,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in June. “LAPD banned  the employment  of the chokehold, if  you'll , and limited it to only deadly force situations,” former L.A. County Sheriff Jim McDonnell told local media last year. Despite  the large  pushback against  the harmful  practice, a video uploaded to Twitter  in the week  shows cops  don't have any  problem disregarding the policy and applying the chokehold. On March 30, police r

Activists build Their personal Facial reputation gadget to identity horrific cops who conceal badges

As reported during the George Floyd protests, across the country, in dozens of cities, cops were  distributing  unprecedented violence  within the  face of angry protests stemming from unchecked police brutality. Though Floyd’s death was the flashpoint of the unrest, the uprising represented something far deeper — systemic abuse by  enforcement  of minorities, the poor,  and everybody  else  in some way  connected to the establishment. Countless incidents throughout this unrest involved officers who  couldn't  be identified and as a  result of  their anonymous instigation and violence, there has been no accountability. In multiple states, police  are  seemingly taking measures to avoid this accountab

On the Same Day Cops Killed George Floyd, 5 Other People Were Killed by Police

What befell George Floyd isn't surprising, it happens each day all through the US, and more often than not the police can get by with no analysis since they can control a huge bit of the proof, and their declaration is given more weight than the residents they cooperate with. Indeed, even in situations where video proof arrives at the open, police have an extensive rundown of reasons and avocations for their savagery, which regularly go unchallenged by the media, who additionally concede to the official's form of occasions by and large, similarly as the courts do. The police and the media will likewise cooperate to defame survivors of police savagery and kill their character since the open will commonly show less compassion toward flawed casualties.  Their pasts are uncovered, spread all around th

Half-Dozen Cops Attack, Arrest Innocent Man, Accusing Him of ‘Dancing in the Street’

Over the weekend, dozens of protesters gathered in front of the Alameda Police Department — and danced. The protesters were honoring an innocent man who was seen on video being attacked by multiple police officers because he was “dancing in the street,” according to police. You cannot make this stuff up. Mali Watkins, a 44-year-old martial artist, works out in the mornings and quite literally dances along the street. Despite the frequent and entirely harmless nature of his dancing, however, police claim someone “reported” him for dancing. The resultant interaction is infuriating. “What did I do wrong?” Watkins asks the cops who start to close in on him, preparing their assault. “You’re dancing in the street,” one cop says as if this is a reason to go after anyone. “I do this every day… please let me go,” said Mali Watkins, a 44-year-old martial artist. “I was just dancing.” The incident unfolded on May 23rd, just two days before George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis p
