over zealous cop/stupid kids- they should all be choked. But what about the voice in the background? Mrs. dudley do-right... "oh and now you're gonna run from the cops..." SHUT UP YOU STUPID WHORE- MIND YOUR BUSINESS. somebody needs to choke her too. Fuq it -choke everybody on the sidewalk.

i wouldn't have been above hitting the cops with a skateboard if i was in that situation and acting in the moment. that could have been near mob mentality had that been a group of 16-18yr old skateboarders instead of barely pubescent 14yr olds.

Cops LOVE to screw with skateboarders in my experience. I've personally seen a skateboarder get punched in the stomach for riding in a school parking lot at night.
Talking smack to cops is retarded but after a while when you're constantly getting harassed by them, I'd probably be the same way.

as said above I would like to hear the whole story because a lot of the times when people only have HALF of the incident on tape it can look really bad (lol think the movie National Security) who knows what they were doing before the cop showed up... I will admit the cop seemed a little overzealous but once again no one knows what happened before the camera came up. This is why I advocate tasers :P they look better in photographs than choke holds.

Not to mention that didn't look like your run-of-the-mill police approved chokes either.

Seeing what the kid was doing before he got choked is the key. Was he taunting the cop and skating away as the cop yelled at him to quit skateboarding in an area where it isn't legal. The cop was an idiot for choking him though, should of just cuffed him on the ground. The kids with skateboards yelling at the cop while they surrounded him are dips**ts. If I was in that situation with moron kids surrounding me with potentially deadly weapons (skateboards hurt when you bash someone with them), I would of drawn my gun and told them to back away and get on their knees, then requested immediate back up instead of putting them in headlocks where the rest of the group can jump your a**.

This Video is posted on KTRH a local news station... here's their story.

Quote:
A police officer who appears to choke a skateboarder and put two others in a headlock in a video posted online has been put on administrative leave while police investigate, officials said.

Hot Springs Mayor Mike Bush said Tuesday that investigators have talked with witnesses who saw the officer, Joey Williams, stop the skateboarders on a downtown city sidewalk last Thursday. Skateboarding is banned in the area.

The video shows Williams apparently choking one of the skateboarders after forcing him to the ground, then later chasing and wrestling two others while holding them in a headlock.

"Unfortunately, the video shows it pretty good," Bush said.
Bush said he won't be sure of the city's next step until the investigation is complete. The video, taken by Matthew Jon McCormack and another unidentified skater, was posted Monday on YouTube, a popular Internet site.

Williams can be heard threatening one person with pepper spray if he moved, and several voices are heard asking why they were being arrested. One person can be seen running from Williams, and Williams later tells them they are fleeing and acting disorderly.

Williams did not answer a request through the department for an interview and did not respond to a phone message left at a home number in his name.

Police spokesman McCrary Means identified two of those arrested as McCormack, 21, and Skylar Nalls, 19, both of Hot Springs. McCormack faces a misdemeanor battery charge after allegedly pushing or striking a 67-year-old city employee during the altercation, Means said. Nalls was cited for skateboarding and faces misdemeanor charges of fleeing and obstructing governmental operations.

Four juveniles involved in the incident also face skateboarding citations and resisting arrest charges, Means said.

McCormack disputed many of the police allegations, especially his battery charge. He said he pulled on the city employee's arm after the man picked a girl off her feet in a choke-hold.

Hot Springs is a resort town about 50 miles west of Little Rock.

First off, being put into handcuffs does not equal being arrested. Mostly, I wasn't there so I can't tell you with any certainty what happened and if it was just.

From the video it appears the officer lost his temper; good thing that never happens to regular citizens! I don't know the circumstances, I wasn't there but he's on administrative leave and that's the correct thing to do.

Amen to that! We had this discussion on another forum. NOBODY knows what that retarded kid was doing beofre the cop got there. And for one he is not "choking" the kid. He is keeping his hands on the kids throat so the kid stays still. One kid is shown running away when the cop tells him to come here so who knows what the first kid did.
