Thuggish Baton Rouge police officer shown above choking 13-year-old Black boy–while another officer holds the boy.
The video shows the unnamed officer pinning the teenager to the ground, an arm around the boy’s neck. Insider has chosen not to republish the video and is blurring the boy’s face in screenshots. “You’re choking him!” a bystander can be heard yelling in the video.

Editor’s Note: One again, here we see violence-prone, racist, white police officers brutalizing Black people because they have been given a license to do it. In this instance, they are abusing a 13-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl.
Where are the voices of those who like to give us lectures about “law and order?” Is choking and beating up Black babies consistent with upholding the so-called “rule of law?”
These white officers are no better that the white supremacists who stormed the Capitol on Jan 6. Some may have even been present to undermine democracy on that day.
The question is: how much more of this do “responsible” political leaders expect us to tolerate before Black America really starts fighting back?
