NYPD OFFICER FIRED After Video Appears To Show Using Banned Chokehold [VIDEO]

12

The NYPD quickly suspended one of its officers without pay Sunday, hours after video circulated appearing to show the officer using a banned chokehold on a man during an arrest in Queens.

The video was taken on a boardwalk near Beach 113th St and Ocean Promenade in Rockaway Beach at 8:45 a.m., according to the Daily News.

Police told the WABC-TV that officers were responding to a report about a man harassing and throwing objects at beachgoers. They said the man threw something at them from a trashcan before resisting arrest.

The New York City Council earlier this month passed legislation that made it a criminal offense for cops to use chokeholds.

The NYPD released the following statement Sunday evening: “We are aware of the video and there is an active use of force investigation underway by the Internal Affairs Bureau. This matter is taken extremely seriously and we expect to have an update this evening as the investigation unfolds.”

Just a few hours later, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea released a statement saying the officer had been suspended without pay following a “swift investigation.”

“Accountability in policing is essential,” Shea said. “After a swift investigation by the Internal Affairs Bureau, a police officer involved in a disturbing apparent chokehold incident in Queens has been suspended without pay.  While a full investigation is still underway, there is no question in my mind that this immediate action is necessary.  We are committed to transparency as this process continues.”

The NYPD also released 35-minute long bodycam footage of the altercation.

A protest over the incident was held at the NYPD’s 100th Precinct Sunday evening.

  1. Wow. And this happened in nyll. A Democrat run state in a Democrat run city with a Democrat city council. But yet is trump’s fault. 😂😂😂
    Same thing happened in Milwaukeeand Seattle. By the way to the retarded antifa supporter Jews that frolic in this page just mind you first thing Antifa did when taking over Seattle? Raise border barriers and stablish army

  2. And established militia that requires id, stops and frisks, raped a deaf woman, tortured and beat up any one seen as a threat. And un the first 3 weeks already committed an act of police brutality that left one wounded and one death. Way to go Antifa . idiots. And worst, you back up BLM yet BLM says all Jews in Israel are white supremacists.i guess they are the world worst white supremacists letting all those Yemenite Jews, Ethiopians, Moroccan and mizrachi jews.

  3. That isn’t far rockaway
    it is the Rockaway Park area precint, around Beach 100 Street
    Far Rockaway is about 5-6 miles away from there

  4. there was 17 shootings in black areas in NY in last 24 hours, and multiple people git shot, and I think even got killed, and I guess black lives matter only if killed by white cop.

  5. All this mes happening in areas with blue governors and blue mayors. But is the presidents fault. In the mean while chop’s policing force have managed to allow a murder and another gun shot victim and a deaf woman was abused. I have to heavily sensor what i want to say as apparently I don’t hace freedom of speech on this site. 2 previous posts being held.

  6. In order for BLM (and all progressives) to really ‘bring the point home’ and to effect real change regarding the matter of – police brutality/racial profiling – why do they constantly highlight the cases which involve criminals that are a threat to other citizens or resisting arrest and seem to pose a threat to police officers, in which case there’s no indication/proof of racial motives? Why don’t they simply bring to attention the cases which involve a police officer approaching an innocent law-abiding black person (or other “minority”) for no reason whatsoever and harassing them/attacking them/arresting them accompanied by racial epithets etc.????? Wouldn’t that prove the point once and for all???????

    Oh, there are no such cases.

  7. That’s becomes the disgusting democratic idiots don’t care if all these shvarts rob, murder and destroy this beautiful country as long as Trump loses. They are the erevrav behamas!!!!!!
