    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.

    Might just be me, but I didn't see a whole lot of police brutality there. I saw a bunch of mob mentality kids thinking they could do whatever they wanted, including assault. Of course, they quickly tucked their tails and ran when actually confronted.

    Man, the threat of pepper spray thinned that mob FAST.

    Sorry, but I don't see any brutality there. Frankly, I'm surprised the cops were as restrained as they were.

    Damn... when I saw "K-9" on the cops vest I was expecting to see a german shepard start chomping.

    All those kids, and no one yelled " World Star!" This is why I don't go to "Carnivals". The most dangerous animals are not the ones in the cages.
    Just the threat of pepper spray and that crowd of "young ladies" dispersed most ricky-tick. Makes one think that perhaps a couple of them had been sprayed before.

    With a name like that and the backing of NBC, article HAS to be legit. LOL, no.

    Very good restraint by the cop with the spray. Also that's not a choke hold.

    I'm not bashing the cops here, but those two are not the brightest bulbs. Let the girl go its 2 on about 40. Mob mentality is a scary thing. They were already punching and kicking the cops. If someone escalated that with a rock. They'd be dead. I'm sure you could've picked her up shortly there after.

    [rofl]Yeah, that was not even close to police brutality. Try that when I was a kid and you would have seen actual brutality. Snowflake nation grows.

    I would have started pepper spraying a lot sooner than they did. would have sent that group away quicker.
    "Liquid hell" in a can I've always called it.
    great stuff!
    LMAO

    Effective Police work, in this day and age where literally everyone has a video camera in their hand, has become very difficult to the point where their hands are tied a lot of the time. Looks like these officers did a pretty good job diffusing the situation. I'm impressed.....

    Why didn't the police wait for backup before confronting that group? Seems dangerous for them with what 3 officers

    There is a simple submission move that will always induce a resisting, grounded suspect to submit.
    Leaves no marks and doesn't choke. Palm on the forehead, pull back. Hurts like hell and stops resistance pretty quick.

    Sorry but those cops did an awesome job, keep in mind they are freaking carrying guns and the stress level of being swarmed by all those idiots is crazy, the cop who showed up late to the party did a great job pulling out the mace and not even using it since they were backing off.

    That's an awful situation to be in. Probably best for the cops to act more like hockey refs.
