Sarasota: Another “knee on the neck” arrest, another video (thank you Israel)


VT: Victim uninjured but chose to use the “Gaza knee choke” which has killed so many Palestinians.  Local police in Sarasota received training by Israeli instructors and are now lying after being caught on video. (see Appendix)

Always note that at least 4 police are present and before Israeli training, police went a century without having to play IDF thug with American citizens.

(CNN)A Florida police department has launched an internal investigation after a video surfaced on social media showing a Sarasota police officer kneeling on a black man’s neck during an arrest.

In the nearly 90-second cellphone video taken by a bystander during the May 18 incident, three officers can be seen attempting to take a male individual into custody. One of the two officers is then seen kneeling on the head and neck of the man.

The man, who was arrested on a domestic violence/battery charge, is heard yelling, “Why am I being arrested?” as the officer kneels on him.

“As I’m yelling, and asking, ‘Why am I being detained,’ he started putting his knee on my neck,” Patrick Carroll said in an interview with CNN affiliate WFTS.

The video surfaced as protests are underway across the nation seeking justice and reform in the wake of George Floyd’s death, which an independent autopsy attributed to officers kneeling on him during his arrest. Video showed an officer with a knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.
In the police incident report obtained by CNN, one of the officers involved says that after they placed Carroll in handcuffs, the “defendant attempted to pull away from officers and refused to get into the rear of the patrol vehicle. Minor force was used to escort subject to the ground and secure him long enough for him to calm down.”
The Sarasota Police Department said in a statement released Tuesday it didn’t learn about the video until Monday when the department was tagged in a social media post showing a portion of the arrest. After a review of several videos, Chief Bernadette DiPino immediately initiated a formal internal affairs investigation, the department said.
The officer, who had not been identified, has been placed on administrative leave.


U.S. Police are Being Trained by Israel—And Communities of Color Are Paying the Price

In recent years, Georgia has experienced troubling trends in fatal police shootings. As this has unfolded, the state continues to pursue a “police exchange” program with the state of Israel.

  1. Floriduhh! Let’s get down to brass-tacks, here. It’s not just the orange asshole. Nearly every politician in the Beltway AND EVERYWHERE ELSE competes for Zionist approval & funding OR THEY WON’T EVEN BE ON A BALLOT! Think AIPAC, ADL, etc. Floriduhh is Chabad-controlled from the PTA’s to Tallahassee. Our new governor upon returning from his obligatory junket to Izrealhell introduced legislation which will make it “…highly illegal…” to associate ‘Hollywood’ with ‘Jooz’. I kid you not. His Excellency is merely paving his way to the money trough in DC.
