In the latest case of police brutality in the UK officers from the West Yorkshire Police force have been filmed brutalizing a man during an extremely violent arrest.
The 45-second clip shows two male officers grappling with a man on the pavement whilst threatening him with the words “chill out or I’ll choke you out”.
Clearly embarrassed by the incident, West Yorkshire’s police and crime commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson, claimed the “footage has been looked into as a matter of urgency by West Yorkshire Police”.
This incident comes on the heels of a rapid succession of police brutality and alleged racism cases across the UK.
Earlier this month footage emerged of two police officers brutalizing a man in north London with one officer kneeling on the man’s neck.
Yet another recently-released shocking footage exposed the brutal hospital-bed arrest of Dr Rashid Abbasi.
Dr Abbasi, who is a National Health Service (NHS) chest consultant, was dragged away by Northumbria Police officers as his critically ill six-year-old daughter clung to life via a ventilator.
