Arrest NYPD cop who kneeled on Blackman’s neck in Queens(

“After George Floyd was murdered, we passed a law to ban chokeholds and kneeling directly on people’s necks,” de Blasio tweeted Thursday afternoon.

“I’ve seen the video from a recent arrest and I’m deeply disturbed. A full investigation is underway and I demand immediate answers from the NYPD.”

The tweet took NYPD brass by surprise, one high-ranking police source told the Daily News.

The NYPD and the Queens District Attorney’s office have said the incident is under investigation. Police body camera footage is part of that review.
