Staten Island Man [Eric Garner] KILLED after NYPD Cop Puts Him In CHOKEHOLD For Breaking Up a FIGHT!!
18 July 2014
New York City police officers killed a man Thursday after he had broken up a fight between two other men, insisting on placing him in a chokehold and slamming his head to the pavement, piling on top of him as he gasped for air and as he continually told the cops he couldn’t breathe.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Inspection examines use of controversial chokehold by police
The Inspectorate for Public Safety and Justice will study the use of the chokehold. The reason for the investigation is the death of the Aruban Mitch Henriquez.
The spokesman of Minister Van der Steur stressed that the study will be about the use of this practice in general. The Henriquez incident is being investigated by the National Police. The inspection will publish the results of the study next year.
Mayor Van Aartsen announced earlier this evening that there would soon be a communication on the “cursed chokehold”. He did so during a debate in the The Hague city council about the death of Henriquez.
The Aruban died after a brutal arrest of oxygen deficiency. That probably originated when a policeman got him in a chokehold to keep Henriquez in check.
The chokehold is a controversial practice, which was banned in New York City, for example, years ago. Dutch police are still taught this practice.
After the death of the Aruban there was a couple of days of unrest in the Schilderswijk area. Local residents accuse the police of racism and discrimination.
Police Chief Paul van Musscher admitted in the council meeting that some police officers discriminate, but that officers guilty of that do not belong in the police. He had during his speech tears in his eyes and said the events also evoke emotion from him.
The judicial investigation into the death of the Aruban according to deputy chief prosecutor Kitty Nooy will take months. In the council meeting, she said that a lot of information has been received and that all that should be examined.
There will also be examination how it is that the prosecution initially reported that Henriquez only became ill while being transported in the police van. Pictures emerged later, on which we can see that Henriquez was already unconscious before he was put into the van. Nooy called it “annoying” that at first there was a wrong press release.
Another Dutch police chokehold death? Here. And here.
