A New York City Police Officer Placed a Pregnant Woman in a Chokehold

NYPD Chokeholds Pregnant Woman

Advocacy group People Organizing and Working for Empowerment and Respect released images of the incident Monday to the Daily News.

“She was grilling in front of her home, not committing any crime,” former City Councilman Charles Barron told The New York Post of the incident. “We want these people out of our community.”

Use of the chokehold by New York police officers has been banned for more than 20 years, according to Reuters. Yet the outlet reports that the department has a “backlog” of chokehold complaints currently under investigation.

The latest chokehold incident comes just over a week after Staten Island man Eric Garner died while being placed in a chokehold by a member of the NYPD. At the time, Garner was being arrested on charges stemming from illegal cigarette sales. A bystander captured the incident on video.

After a meeting with Garner’s family and federal prosecutors in Brooklyn on Friday, activist Rev. Al Sharpton called for an end to the use of the chokehold nationwide.

“We cannot just depend — and this is important — on police policy to stop the choke hold,” Sharpton said, per Reuters. “We need a federal precedent.”

*With the drama of his new deal with the New York Knicks behind him, All-Star Carmelo Anthony is padding his business portfolio with the formation of a fund to invest in technology startups.

Melo, who wears No. 7 on his jersey, founded M7 Tech Partners with Stuart Goldfarb, a former executive vice president of worldwide business development at NBC, Goldfarb told Bloomberg.com.

New York-based M7 Tech Partners won’t have outside investors or limited partners, Goldfarb said. It will invest in startups that focus on digital media and consumer technology, Goldfarb said, adding that the fund has made an undisclosed investment in Hullabalu Inc., which creates digital children’s books. Hullabalu’s other investors include Reddit Inc. co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
