Video shows Schenectady officer kneeling on man’s neck
VT: Another town in rural America where DHS cash was spent getting the local chief and friends a free flight for an Epstein style vacation in Israel while being “trained up” by a brutal apartheid regime.
This town, as with so many others, have to be aware of the long history of human rights abuses and thousands of killings of innocent civilians and yet they choose to turn their klan-kissing thugs over to the only nation on earth than is actually worse…
Victim alleges he lost consciousness before he was put in a police vehicle
SCHENECTADY — A crowd chanting, “Who do you protect, who do you serve?’ and “Whose streets? Our Streets,” held a peaceful rally outside police headquarters Monday night after a video emerged earlier in the day showing a city police officer kneeling on a man’s neck.
The altercation took place Monday morning on North Brandywine Avenue outside the home of Yugeshwar Gaindarpersaud, 31, who was taken into custody after the incident.

Gaindarpersaud, who said he was charged with resisting arrest, joined dozens of protesters and recounted how the officer allegedly made him lose consciousness before he was put in a police car.

As the increasingly concerned father points at his son, the officers tells him “go back inside now.”
