Man Selling Bottled Water without License Placed in Chokehold: “I Can’t Breathe”
Las Vegas police arrested a man for selling bottled water without a license as witnesses recorded.
A man selling cold bottled water to thirsty tourists on a triple-digit summer day in Las Vegas was placed in a chokehold by Las Vegas police who apparently were cracking down on unlicensed street vendors.
“I can’t breathe” the man wheezes as one cop tightens the chokehold around his neck. But the cop only tells him to “quit resisting.”
“Saying he is resisting won’t make him be resisting,” says a witness as the cops continues repeating the mindless phrase.
“We’re watching you.”
The man does not resist throughout the video but the cops continue to tell him not to resist.
“You’re the only one that committed a crime,” another witness tells the cops.
