Police are looking into whether a cop put a woman who is seven months pregnant in a chokehold at her Brooklyn home over the weekend, cops said Monday.
Video frames released by an advocacy group in East New York show Rosan Miller, 27, struggling with a cop who appears to have his arm around her neck, police said.
Officers went to the home because Miller was grilling on a public sidewalk in violation of local law, cops said. But a melee broke out that ended with her, her brother and husband all in cuffs.
The brother, John Miller, 29, was charged with harassment and obstruction, and the husband, Moses Miller, 34, was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction. Rosan Miller was hit with a disorderly conduct summons.
When former City Councilman Charles Barron heard, he called cops to complain and “expedite” their release, he said.
“This was all over a grill,” Barron said. “This is about grilling in front of her house.”
The advocacy group calling itself People Organizing and Working for Empowerment and Respect _ that appears to be run by Barron and his politician wife, Inez Barron, released the photos.
Charles Barron pointed out that the woman’s daughter can be seen in the photo watching her mother being arrested. Barron said one of the cops, a lieutenant, went by the apartment on at 594 Bradford St. Thursday about a domestic incident involving somebody else in the building and returned on Saturday while they were grilling.
The NYPD prohibits the use of chokeholds. A case in which a man died while in an apparent chokehold has led to outcry in the city recently. Eric Garner, 43, died July 17 after a confrontation with cops who were arresting him for selling illegal cigarettes.
So the NYPD is at it again. This time they have choked a 7 month pregnant Black woman. Her offense? She was grilling in front of her house. This is over a damn grill.
Right on cue, people are already talking about the NYPD needing sensitivity training etc. They don’t get it. This is what the NYPD does. It’s not about a lack of training. They are looking for any reason to inflict fear and escalate a situation so they can use as much force as possible. I don’t know how many more incidents need to happen to make it click in their heads that the police is terrorizing Black communities. How much more ridiculous do these situations need to get? You tell me what warrants choking a pregnant woman for grilling in front of her house. Damn whether that is not allowed or not. You know what you do in that situation as a cop? You give her a citation or a fine. Not the NYPD, they choke and assault pregnant Black women.
Also, let’s not forget that Eric Garner was NOT selling cigarettes, that was just their cover up for assaulting him in the first place.
For reals. Fuck all cops, they are our enemies and need to be treated as such.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.
MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.
And my bow.
This needs more notes ._.
Here I am reblogging this from myself because I think everyone who breathes needs to see it and MAKE IT STOP.
This is a joke. He interviews people and makes jokes. Calm your feministic self down.
Get out. If you honestly think that, I want you to unfollow me right now.
That guy isn’t joking, and if he is, its a god awful joke, and has no right to be supported. If he’s joking, then its an example of institutionalized misogyny in comedy that has been built up over the years and decades past, and it is not acceptable.
I am uncomfortable with those jokes, and I’m a GUY. It isn’t ok to do to ANYBODY, let alone people who are trying to enjoy a convention and cosplay a character they like. This is disgusting and shit like this needs to stop, from all angles, even someone trying to make a shitty joke.
Women are not objects, and they should not be treated as such.
If you think this guy is funny for doing that, and if you honestly think I need to calm down for being “feministic” in this issue, then you need to unfollow me, because I have no intention of stopping. And now that you’ve drawn attention to yourself with this, I highly suggest you don’t bring it up again.
In fact, I recommend you take a good long look at yourself. Take a look at how you are treated, and how other people around you are treated. If you think this is comedic and funny, you need to check yourself, because its not. If you think joking about women in such a way that demeans them and objectifies them, you need to check yourself.
And above all else, if you think someone standing up for equality of women and the cessation of this shitty behavior from EVERYONE, not just this comedian, warrants someone like YOU telling that person to “calm [their] feministic self down”, then you need to reconsider your priorities in life.
is that you hobby lobby
Am I the only one that’s a just a tiny bit pissed off that this is still an issue?
