On Tuesday June 16th The Blaze ran the headline, “Seattle City Council bans police use of chokeholds, tear gas, and pepper spray.”
The Seattle City Council voted Monday night to ban the police use of chokeholds, tear gas, and pepper spray as the city deals with continued protests, including a six-block are of the city that has been taken over by protesters demanding the abolition of the city’s police department, KING-TV reported.
The legislation bans the crowd control methods as unlawful uses of force that open the city up to legal liability in the event those methods are used.
National Director, Thomas Robb, of the Knights Party based in Harrison Arkansas said, “This legislation is back-pedaling on what these riots, yes riots, not protests are even supposed to be about. I thought the black community was fighting for laws against police brutality? Now, the use of non-lethal force is being banned. This is what happens in a multicultural society, white America can’t and never will be able to please non-whites in our White country.”
