Texas Cop Chokes and Takes Down 14-Year-Old

October 12, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


Look at this video of a cop choking a 14-year-old youth and slamming him to the ground. This happened at a high school in Round Rock, Texas. There was apparently a fight between the youth, Gyasi Hughes, and another student. This could and should have been dealt with by cooling down the situation—a typical squabble between youths that happens all the time in schools all over—without anybody getting hurt. The last thing that was needed was for the system’s armed enforcers to come into this. And sure enough, the pig ends up viciously attacking Gyasi—for nothing! A system with police that treat our youth like this is totally worthless and illegitimate.
