WATCH: NYPD cop placed in headlock while trying to break up Bronx mob


One of the very maneuvers the NYPD will, under a new City Council bill, soon face charges for using.“F–k him up!

“F–k him up!” a savage who filmed the lawless encounter shouts as the suspect wraps his right arm around one of the cops’ necks.

It’s open season on the NYPD because of the policies of New York city’s Marxist and pro-criminal mayor. The POTUS must intervene.

NYPD cop placed in headlock while trying to break up Bronx crowd, video shows

By New York Post, July 12, 2020

A pair of NYPD cops simply wanted to disperse a crowd gathered on a hot July night at a Bronx street corner.

But as this disturbing video shows, in an instant the two officers found themselves surrounded by angry, taunting bystanders.

And as the crowd cheered, a man they were trying to arrest put one of the two officers in a headlock — one of the very maneuvers they themselves will, under a new City Council bill, soon face misdemeanor charges for using.

“F–k him up! F–k him up!” an unidentified man who filmed the lawless encounter shouts as the suspect wraps his right arm around one of the cops’ necks.

The dangerous grip lasts a chilling four seconds, video from the July 1 melee at Grand Concourse and Morris Avenue shows.

Then the captive cop falls to the ground. At that point, the suspect breaks the headlock and runs off.

“They smoked you, p—y!” the man filming is then heard taunting. “You just got smoked, p—y!”

The video came to light Saturday when it was tweeted by the Sergeants Benevolent Association.

The union used the video to vent its fury over a City Council bill now awaiting Mayor Bill de Blasio’s signature that will make it a misdemeanor offense for cops to use any maneuver that restricts a suspect’s airflow by compressing the neck.

Sitting, kneeling or standing on a suspect’s chest or back in a manner compressing their breathing would face the same penalty — up to a year in jail.

“COREY JOHNSON your STUPID law is about to be signed by NYC STUPID Mayor it’s time you both take your community input & grab these perps yourself,” read the SBA tweet, posted with the video.

“Putting a cop in a headlock could mean a death sentence if they lose control of their gun,” an outraged law enforcement source told The Post in response to the video.

“A cop in a headlock can’t maintain weapons control.”


The cop who’d been put in a headlock that night suffered a gash to the head that required staples, sources said.

The NYPD knows who the “headlocker” is — he is a known gang member who turned himself in a week later to the 46th Precinct, where the brawl happened, a law enforcement source said.

He has a long rap sheet, according to police sources. He’s been arrested 11 times for charges including gang assault, criminal possession of a loaded firearm and robbery, amongst others.
