Buffalo Police Viral Video Suspect

Buffalo Police Helping, Not Hurting Suspect in Viral Video

Buffalo police officer accused of choking suspect was actually saving him from choking on 39 bags of crack cocaine that he had allegedly swallowed."

A viral video of police up in Buffalo allegedly choking a suspect is not what it seems, according to reports.

The video, posted last week to social media, shows a Buffalo police officer on top of a suspect with his hands on the suspect’s neck and face.

The Buffalo News reported:

What is not clear in the video, Buffalo police sources say, is that the officer was attempting to prevent the man from choking on drugs he had swallowed.

… A third police source, familiar with procedures at arrest scenes, said that it did not appear that the officer used excessive force, adding that when defendants resist arrest, inherently “there is a struggle.”

“He swallowed 39 bags of crack cocaine and the officer is trying to keep him from choking on them,” an officer familiar with the arrest told The Buffalo News. “The suspect was taken to the hospital and voluntarily threw up the drugs.”

      You mean like how that jackbooted psychopath DIDN’T murder Laquan Mcdonald? Even though it’s caught on tape? A tape that the Chicago Jackboot department hid from the public for FOUR HUNDRED DAYS? Here’s a comment for you, bootlicker.

            So, you get to say whatever you want, and then criticize others for doing the EXACT SAME THING. Yeah, you’re a bootlicker. You worship jackbooted thugs because you have the exact same “I’m above the law because by God I say so” mentality that all cops have. Hope karma bites you right in the a$$ and one of these criminals with badges mistakenly kicks down YOUR door and blows your brains out. And of course, gets away with it scot-free, all because he said “I feared fer muh life!!!!”.
