How To Use ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ To End A Black Lives Matter Protest
Video shows police using a chokehold on a Black Lives Matters protester in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 20, 2017.
The video shows the protester being pushed to the ground by police, who then use the chokehold, a choke hold in which a person is pinned against the ground with their arms and legs crossed.
After a few seconds, the man is removed from the choke hold and then is placed in a choke position, which can be performed with a belt or a noose.
The video, which was posted on the Vice News website on Sunday, shows the man being led to the sidewalk and then placed in handcuffs.
He is then seen lying in the street as police officers continue to handcuff him.
In the video, police can be seen telling the man to get up and to move away from them.
“Don’t move!” one officer yells.
“Stop resisting arrest!”
Another officer responds, “Don, he’s getting down.”
The video then shows the officer grabbing the man by the neck and holding him against the sidewalk.
He can be heard telling the protester to get down, saying, “I will get him off of you, you don’t have to do this.”
The protester can be clearly heard asking the officer, “Do you know why he’s in handcuffs?
What did he do?”
The officer responds that he did not know.
He said the man was in handcuffs for resisting arrest.
“I don’t know what happened,” the officer said.
“I can’t tell you what happened, but I’m telling you what I know,” the man says.
“He is on the ground.
He’s not moving.
He was pinned down.”
After being pinned against a sidewalk, the protester can then be heard saying, he had to fight the cops.
“We have a right to be here,” he said.
“You can’t use this to get away from us.
He has to come back to the street.
We have to fight you.
We’re not going to give up.”
When the officer responds to the man again, saying he doesn’t know why the man had to be in handcuffs, he can be overheard saying, You know, we’re trying to arrest people, but we’re not arresting them.
You don’t need to use this as a weapon.
You can’t have a police officer use force against a person who’s being arrested?” the officer asked. “
What are you saying?
You can’t have a police officer use force against a person who’s being arrested?” the officer asked.
“This is over.
He [the protester] is not resisting arrest.”
He was eventually released from custody, and the officer was placed on administrative leave.
Vice News has reached out to the officer for comment.
The protests in Ferguson have grown into a national discussion about race relations and the lack of accountability for police.
In the wake of the shooting death of Michael Brown by a white police officer in August, several protests took place in cities across the country.
In some of the cities, the protests have been peaceful, but others have turned violent.
