As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by NYPost.com:
Seattle cops were filmed kneeling on the necks of two protesters as they tried to clear the city’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone on Thursday — just weeks after George Floyd died under the same circumstances.
In one video shared online, a dozen police officers can be seen rushing on the group of demonstrators before tackling one person to the ground and detaining them using the same kind of force which has since been condemned by police departments across the country.
The article goes on to state the following:
Protesters can be heard yelling and telling the officers to get their knee of the person’s neck.
Just to clarify (from analysis of my high def recording plus other angles):
The kid had a PHONE in his hand… and was recording the other arrest.
A cop barges into him and he loses the phone.
He turns to walk away…
Then is assaulted.
