Pregnant Woman Placed in Chokehold


Pregnant Woman Placed in Chokehold…

On Saturday, July 26th, a Brooklyn woman was placed in a chokehold by a New York City Police Officer after being confronted for illegal grilling (yes, cooking) on a sidewalk  not far from her home in East New York. Rosan Miller, 27, who is 7-months pregnant can be seen in a chokehold in a photo with a police officer with his forearm close to her neck. This photo was released by advocacy group, People Organizing and Working for Empowerment and Respect and according to the Daily News, the confrontation became physical after the officer approached Miller. Her husband, Moses Miller and brother, John Miller, quickly became involved. This resulted in her brother being charged with harassment and obstruction of justice while her husband was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction. Miller was given a summons for disorderly conduct for her part.

Who knew cooking on a Summer afternoon in the streets of New York could be so dangerous and illegal?
