WATCH: Seattle PD Officer Caught On Camera With Knee On Protester’s Neck
Last night, the Seattle Police department made arrests after a number of protesters attempted to loot a T-Mobile in Seattle. However, as the police dispersed the crowd and made arrests, an officer was caught on camera placing his knee on a protester's neck.
The protester was already on the ground and complying with the arrest. To be sure, this illegal strategy of forcing arrestees into compliance is what resulted in the murder of George Floyd of Minneapolis earlier this week, the reason for the subsequent protests.
A man in the background shouted, “Get your knee off his fucking neck.”
The other officer making the arrest pulled his knee off the protester’s neck.
