This use of force is not excessive. Considering that the main threat to the officer’s health is a viral disease. The leg sweep is methodical and gentle and the officer clearly de-escalates his use of force (ie chokehold) once the POI is on the ground and in a position where she can not Harm the officer (even after she assaults by kicking). This is a clear de-escalation of force to bring this person into safe custody by this officer. Pretty simple. Don’t wear a mask, provide a reasonable excuse. Don’t provide a reasonable excuse you will get asked for ID. Refuse to provide ID and you will be arrested. Resist arrest and you will be arrested by force.
Everyone saying this is a “chokehold” IDK if you’re blind or what, but you can literally see him gently grabbing her by the jaw, not the throat. the whole “i can’t breathe” bs is probs so her mate can get it on camera and play it off as police brutality. not to mention she took a swing and spat at the cops first.
