You're a violent thug who should be behind bars.
Tell me, what kind of chokehold does this look like to you?
Both the assholes holding the guy while Officer Thug-in-Chief strangles him are responsible as well, because they could damn well have stopped it. If they wanted to.
Update: The Knox County Sheriff's Office says they have fired the deputy involved in Saturday night's block party in Fort Sanders.
Frank Phillips, 47, has been with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office since 1992.
And a statement from the Sheriff:
“In my 34 years of law enforcement experience, excessive force has never
been tolerated. After an investigation by the Office of Professional
Standards, I believe excessive force was used in this incident.
Therefore, Officer Phillips’ employment with the Knox County Sheriff’s
Office is terminated immediately. The investigation will now be turned
over to the Knox County Attorney General’s Office to determine any
“This incident provides a perfect example of why
we are in the process of purchasing officer worn body cameras (video and
audio recordings) so incidents like this will be fully documented.”
Excellent. Now the question is what happens to the two idiots holding the guy while Phillips strangled him?
