Another NYPD chokehold caught on video

Ronald Johns

Ronald Johns being choked by unidentified NYPD cop

Days before Eric Garner was killed when a NYPD cop used a prohibited chokehold on him during a minor arrest, there was another incident of the same nature.  A new video has surfaced of another cop using a chokehold. Ronald Johns, age 22, of New York, walked through an emergency gate at an East Harlem subway station without paying. Police officers attempted to arrest Johns and a scuffle ensued.

During the altercation, a police officer can clearly be seen using a chokehold on Johns. According to the NYPD, chokeholds are banned by the department. This incident occurred on July 14three days before Eric Garner was killed by police. Fortunately for Johns, he is still alive but is facing charges of resisting arrest, criminal trespass and fare evasion. Despite departmental policy, it seems that a chokehold is employed often when it comes to black men.

 

The video can be seen below:

    my grandma use to say we living in our last days … i dont think so i think we are living in our last hour… anyone of us can be next . there is a fear among whites with blacks , some of them with the super media and social media can now read up on EMMITT TEAL , and all the horried deaths in the south. they know now what schools tried to keep from them , and you have to put your self in some of these young kids and young cops places , they have had no relationship with blacks cause they been told its not good for them .so for year they disassociate with blacks they dont live next door to blacks .. and they dont invite blacks to their homes so they can get to know us .. more mixxed marriages to have open the flood gate to forcing them to deal with us .. a lot more white men are trying to marry black women so they can not have afear of blacks .. its a hard thing for them to do cause of the way they been raised .. i dont feel sorry for them , they need to get a book out .. and find black friends . these cops need special training that is mandatory to pass , with hard questions on the black panther , kkk organization, civil right era . and lincoln to .. just questions about blacks people i bet you non of them will pass it ..
    THE YOUNG WHITE MALES COMING STRAIGHT OUT OF MILITARY AND ON TO THE STREET WITH HALF OF THEM BI POLAR AND SHELL SHOT ,AND POST TRAMATIC STRESS DISORDERS AND STILL GIVEN A BADGE .. a 8th grader can pass the written test to be a police and a prison guard . so we need to change this .. obama aint gonna do it for fear someone will accuse him of helping blacks hell he helped mexicans RIGHT? THATS WHY THEY FLOODING OUT THE BOARD ON OBAMAS CLOCK HOW SWEET

    THIS IS WHAT MICHEAL JACKSON MEANT WHEN HE DID HEAL THE WORLD SONG.. I SURE MISS HIIM CAUSE HE BOUGHT AMERICA TOGETHER BEFORE WHITES FOUND A WAY TO DESTROY HIS SOUL … he was a good guy . and i will never believe he molested anyone , look how good he was with his kids .. look how many kids he offered to come to his ranch .. and travel to .,, why would anyone think a man who has bodyguards would degrade hisself , we all know how passionate he was about helping people , some people just took advantage of him ..
