Baltimore police are investigating arrest shown in viral video

Baltimore police say they’re investigating the arrest of a man which was captured on video and went viral on social media.

The 45-second video posted on Twitter begins with two officers positioned over a man while he lays on his stomach on the sidewalk. The video does not show the interaction between the man and the officers before video recording began.

One officer is on top of the man’s upper back with his arm wrapped around his neck. He yells at the man to put his arms behind his back.\

The man on the ground can be heard yelling, “’re choking me, sir! ’re choking me.” Two people are heard speaking with the officers during the arrest but are not in camera view.

Police said they’ve been investigating the incident since Monday, when the arrest occurred, though the video was brought to their attention Thursday.

“In all cases like this, we investigate the circumstances that led to the arrest and evaluate whether the arrest itself and the use of force are in compliance with the department’s policies and procedures,” said Matthew Jablow, spokesperson for the Baltimore Police Department.. Jablow identified the man being arrested as 23-year-old Dixon.

His charges have since been dropped, the Baltimore state attorney’s office said.

“Based on the review of the unreleased body worn camera footage, dismissal of the charges was warranted and further investigation has been initiated,” said Zy Richardson, spokesperson for the Baltimore state attorney’s office.

The dropped charges included felony drug possession, trespassing and resisting arrest for allegedly biting the

Someone needs to explain to these niggers that "Eenie meenie minee moe, catch a nigger by the toe, if he hollers let him go" is not a law.

Actually, I would enjoy seeing those cops shoot the teeth out of the mouths of those running their gums. Baltimore has turned into a complete, filthy, drug infested shit hole.

Any Caucasian police officer with a brain would not work in cities like Baltimore.

It is so easy to figure it out. Comply. Then do your arguing in front of a judge. BUT NO. The American dindu is trained to argue, fight, and resist because "I dindu nuffins." Wall off dindustan and leave dindus to their own. White people need to stop interfering with their evolution. AND. I must say. I have grandfathered friends who are black dindus. They agree with me even. Of course, we are all old farts who know reality. But I could tell them the exact same thing and they whole heartedly agree that the NAPA is an out of control wild beast. Uh Oh. I'm RAYCISSS. Then again... So are my dindu friends who hate the dindu as much as everyone else.

niggers only comply when forced. Ask them to go through the motions of course - but be ready to use force - very few niggers co-operate with humans until they are forced.
