Handcuffed Black Man Dies In Police Custody After Brutal Knee To Neck
Police brutality continues in the United States as a fresh video pops up on the Internet showing how a cop killed a black man after placing his knee on the neck to force him down. As the police officer tries to put the man in handcuffs, he kneels over his neck applying pressure to hold him down. The disturbing video also shows a person making the video telling the police that the handcuffed person is not responding, implying that there is something wrong. The event has taken place in Minneapolis on Monday May 25.
Black Man Killed By A Cop – Journalist Claim Open Season!
As the passersby condemned the brutal and very excessive force by which the police officer was pinning down the man, one even pointed out that the person was not breathing. For journalist Gayle King, he calls it open season for the police, a disturbing yet accurate analysis of the situation. Something that has prevailed for a long time:
“It feels to me like open season… and that sometimes it’s not a safe palce to be in this country for black men.”
Check out the brutal video of a cop pinning down the black man:
The black man can be heard saying that his stomach hurts, his neck hurts, and even he can’t breathe. One of the police officers tried explaining their actions to the passersby “this is why you don’t do drugs”. However, this is clear that this is not about doing drugs at all.
Unilad is reporting that the black man is dead due to the aggressive kneeling of cops on the person. As the latest reports suggest, that up to four policemen have been fired after the incident as the FBI has joined in on the investigation of what truly went down. Look at the video by CBS Evening News:
The police tell that bodycams were on at all times and now weapons used either. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has received all the footage of the incident for further investigation.
