Tennessee police officer choked unconscious an unresisting student (photos) (edited)
Daily Mail ^ | 27 April 2014 | ALEX GREIG

Posted on 04/27/2014 3:20:40 PM PDT by coloradan

A Knoxville photographer has captured a police officer on camera using what looks like excessive and unnecessary force on a college student. The sequence of photographs show the young man complying with Knox County deputies as they lead him to a police van at the University of Tennessee, before an officer uses two hands to choke the student until he is unconscious. The young man was arrested during a wild college party celebrating after a week of finals that spilled out onto the street on Saturday night.

This small penis cowardly cop needs to be fired immediately for his criminality.

K-ville is going deeply left, but I am not ready to jump to the conclusions insisted upon in this article. I’ve dealt with drunken college students before. It ain’t pretty, skippy, and I can imagine I’d just shoot the modern college fools rather than just put them to sleep by pressing the carotid arteries.

I’m sure the pig choked him. Then went home and shot his dog. Cause all cops are scum.

But. That pic doesn’t look like a choke hold.

Agreed. The Frat Boys around here cause more problems then the gang bangers.

They’re often involved with vandalism, theft, drug trafficking, and other crimes. I don’t want to paint them all with a broad brush, so I’ll say it’s not all, but whenever I go out at night and trouble turns up, it’s wearing Greek lettering and driving a BMW.

I can figure is the cop did that to throw fear into the other kids. “See this you little maggots?, this could be YOU, if you keep acting up! You want some of this? Take a picture, why don’t you?!” That choke was not at all necessary and could have caused a stroke in certain individuals.

The other disquieting thing here is that the “sheriff” uses his patrol vehicles to advertise who “he” is. Is this another “Southern Custom.?”

Your idea is much better.

Churchill said: “If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”

Drunken male college students are dangerous and sometimes VERY stupid. They think they are invincible and immortal. They are the ones who keep the Stanford Hospitals of this country supplied with YOUNG hearts, livers, kidneys, etc., for those who need transplants.

The fact that 5 officers were demoted by JJ Jones should tell you

When the student was unconscious, the police picked him up and the officer who choked him slapped him around the head a few times before walking off, reports the Messner.

Since I have no idea what actually transpired between the officer and the kid...kid could have been verbally abusive...and would have given the cop the benefit of the doubt...

Until...I got to the part about him slapping him around while he was unconscious...

Clearly a JBT..that needs to be fired...

Where do YOU have evidence to suppose spitting and cussing?

Bad words are not supposed to evoke any kind of “compliance” hold, or any kind of reaction from police officers.

Spitting? Officer Tallandfat walks around from behind the student to put his hands on his neck - he wasn’t a likely spit target. The student doesn’t look like he’s anything but co-operative.

And if you read the article, Officer Tallandfat slapped the young man about the head some after he was unconscious.

Officer Tallandfat needs to retire without pension, promptly.

Now see Johnny you got it all wrong. The cop noticed some dirt on the guy’s neck and was trying to simply wipe it off.

The cop needs to go...no doubt. But you can’t look at that picture and say whether or not their was resistance.

Choking a suspect is definitely crossing the line. LOL....what kind of defence tactics are cops being taught these days. “If all else fails.....CHOKE’ EM”.

And look at the series of pictures at the linked article. The first picture has the FAT CRIMINAL DEPUTY behind the student shining his flashlight at the student’s back.

In subsequent pictures he goes around to the front of the student (while the other TWO LAW ABIDING DEPUTIES handcuff the student), places his two hands around the student’s neck and begins to STRANGLE the HELPLESS STUDENT. Observe the look of exertion on the FAT CRIMINAL DEPUTY’S face—FATSO is putting his all into the strangle.

In the final photo the student is completely unconscious and has collapsed. In that last photo look at the FAT CRIMINAL DEPUTY’s face now—he almost looks as if he had just has an orgasm. The FAT CRIMINAL DEPUTY is a very dangerous man that is loose in the community—he may well have strangled (to death) others in the past and gotten away with it.

JJ Jones, Knox County Sheriff, demoted 5 officers involved in this event.
You do know there are such things as internal investigations don’t you?

Now why would JJ Jones demote 5 of his officers?

Of course, all the details will come out when this student files a civil case.

***************************************************************
“...officers involved in THIS event...”? Read the article more CAREFULLY-—those demotions were from a different event 2 years ago. And the two year old event didn’t even involve deadly force such as strangling.

The kid is lucky the double chinned bastard didn't start shouting at him to stand up after he choked him, and then beat the hell out of him for failing to comply.

Perhaps a few of these cops need to start having "accidents" a few months after they get their rocks off on citizens that are not allowed to defend themselves.

What on earth would having the sound do?

Awe.....did the frat boy call the cop a meany name?

Of course these are a bunch of spoiled frat brats....so what? Doesn’t give the cop license to choke him. Even if the cop gets his feelings hurt.

But I’ll play along. Lets assume the guy spit on the cop, as you speculated, or resisted arrest, or whatever. Is that the first action the cop is to take on his continuum of force? Not the good old fashioned tripping him to the ground, pressing a knee into his back, maybe even pulling out the night sticks? Tasers are no longer in vogue? Pepper spray is out? Apparently the officer’s toolbox for handling frat brats is limited to choking them into submission!

Nope.

The party was off campus in Ft Sanders evidently involving about 800 persons. Ft Sanders to the right of 17th st has lots of apartments now all the way down to where the produce companies used to be at the end of Forest Ave. That's apartments now also.

KPD & KCSD were called after it got out of hand. I'm reading WBIR's article. I would question if the passing out was from the hold which could have been trying to hold his head up till cuffed or drinking.

UT has in the past couple of years have some Frat parties gone bad like a "excuse my French" Butt Chugging Party where a student almost died.

Generally when you see a cop doing harm they are keyed up. Look at the guy cuffing and the one to the side of him. It's a one sided picture and hard to tell.

This is extremely disturbing, as I suspect this officer is a psychopath. He has probably figured out this sleeper hold and wanted someone to try it out on.

On these grounds alone he should have a psychiatric ban on being an LEO. Just firing him isn’t enough, as police departments around the US should know not to hire him, as he is a dangerous, potentially homicidal risk.

Check WBIR.com but don't post article it's Gannet owned and on the FR link only list I think. If there was wrong doing you can bet knoxnews.com will have a field day with it.

The powers that be are a Knoxville DEM Mayor and IIRC a GOP County mayor. Knox County is there because the county runs the jail and it's out in the county off Washington Pike now across from the old Penal Farm.

Nah it's just typical local weekend little coverage news. I-75 north of Knoxville from Raccoon Valley to Lake City has been at a near stand still all afternoon and not a word on that either. Something up around the Clinch River bridge near Lake City I think.

Are you serious? You think the FAT CRIMINAL DEPUTY was simply trying to hold the student’s head up? The FAT CRIMINAL DEPUTY was not “keyed up”. Look at the series of pictures. Using great exertion (look at his face) FATSO strangled the student CALMLY, IN COLD BLOOD.

And what the hell is a “one sided picture”?
