United States:Police law enforcement against ethnic minorities still occurs
At present, people in many parts of the United States continue to hold protests against racial discrimination and police violent law enforcement. However, violent law enforcement incidents by the US police against ethnic minorities are still happening. This month, the United States Louisiana and Pennsylvania have successively witnessed two police violent law enforcement incidents, which again caused public dissatisfaction.
This incident occurred on the 11th local time in the United States, in Allentown, Pennsylvania. It can be seen from the picture that during the process of subduing a dark-skinned man, the US police first pressed his elbow and then his knee against the man’s neck. The man’s head was facing down and could not move. Whether the man is of African descent is still uncertain. This incident has once again triggered local protests. On the night of the 11th, many people gathered outside the police station, holding the slogan”Black people’s lives are also lives”, expressing their dissatisfaction with the police’s violent law enforcement. On the 13th local time, some local protests continued.
American “Black man’s life is his life” protest organizer Justin Parker:People think this kind of thing (violent law enforcement) will not happen again, but it (violent law enforcement) has been happening, and It happened yesterday (11th).
Also during this month, there was also a police suspected of violent law enforcement in Baton Rouge in Louisiana, USA event. An online video showed that the police pressed an knee against an African man during law enforcement. Murphy Paul, chief of the Baton Rouge Police Department, confirmed the incident, saying that the incident occurred on the 6th local time and that the two police officers involved had been investigated.
For the ongoing police violence law enforcement incidents in the United States, American civil rights activist Gary Chambers said ,”Law enforcement against the people’s neck with their knees should not be allowed under any circumstances. There are no exceptions and no excuses.”
