Minneapolis police officers will not be allowed to use strangulation techniques

The use of strangulation techniques by police during detention will be prohibited in Minneapolis, after the dramatic incident with George Floyd that resulted in the death of the detainee. The city authorities came to this decision after the city council briefing.

In the case of attempts to use this technique by one of the law enforcement officers, the colleagues should verbally or “through physical influence” to stop such an attempt.

Recall that after the death of Floyd, four of the police officers who detained him were fired and charged, which could result in up to 40 years in prison. The incident caused a wide public outcry in the country: mass riots took place in 40 cities of the United States.
