PD get swarmed at PA Carnival

Can't even go to a Carnival these days without antics like this flaring up. I remeber some bar fights a long time ago where some gals took a swing at the PD and quickly wisked away to a cruiser. But a Carnival?


https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...enage-n1004891

Carnival fight investigated after Pennsylvania officers appear to choke, slam teenage girls
"This wasn't an act of terror by the police. These officers were overcoming a significant amount of resistance," the police chief said.



A wild fight at a Pennsylvania carnival has sparked a police investigation after an officer was seen on cellphone video appearing to put a teenage girl in a chokehold while a second policeman slams another girl to the ground.

The incident happened Saturday night at the annual St. Francis Spring Carnival in Norristown when police were called to break up a massive brawl involving around 50 teenagers, according to NBC Philadelphia.

In footage of the melee, an officer is seen on the ground with his arm tightly around a teenage girl's neck as she appears to cry. Several teenagers are surrounding the officer.

When one girl from the crowd takes a step toward the officer, he swings at her. She responds by punching the officer several times in the head. A second officer comes to the first officer's aid and slams the girl to the ground.

A police spokesperson declined to name the officers involved and said in a statement Monday that the department was investigating the matter. The policemen involved remain on duty, the spokesperson said.

"We’ve received several videos and social media posts regarding how the officers conducted themselves. A full and thorough investigation is being conducted. We are committed to uncovering all of the relevant facts and will proceed transparently and impartially," the statement read.

The girl placed in the headlock told NBC Philadelphia that she repeatedly told the officer choking her that she couldn't breathe, but he would not let go.

Super dangerous situation when these 'youths' have zero respect for authority. Wonder where they learned that.

Cops would have been justified throwing haymakers and knocking them out cold one by one until they backed off, or pepper spraying the lot of them.

THey were badly outnumbered by violent offenders and a gun could have been taken from the cops and then lots of people killed.

I remember the days when the only black person at a fair or carnival was the men’s bathroom attendant.🤔

Norristown is about 10 miles or so from my AO. It is the county seat and is a cesspool of Philly overflow.

In any kind of a SHTF scenario, these are the creatures I will need to deal with first. The extra 20 or so miles will slightly delay the Philly sewerage.

I thought the second police officer showed excellent restraint. He pushed her back and off of himself and the other cop several times. I'd have broke that girls jaw.

How you ever seen how a troop of baboons act when in an excitable situation in the wild?

You can't tell some one you can't breathe, if you can't breathe!

Just saying someone should inform this girl of that fact.

Who let the Bitches out?

K9 - but where were the dogs? That might actually be restraint on part of the Police!!!!!!!! - 'dem girls, if they knew anything - would realize what might have been - maybe next time! Woof Woof! Little Womenazis will have their day of awakening - a performance of The Black Swan - but an impromptu performance, in all probability!

I'm sure there are many who call that a racist statement, and in other situations it might be so. In this case, it is a perfectly apt description of the behavior.
