The news is out: [LONDON (AP) — The lawyer for a Black man filmed being pinned down by a London police officer who appeared to kneel on his neck said Saturday that the force should apologize to his client, and claimed the incident “mirrors” the death of George Floyd in the United States.
Marcus Coutain was detained on a London street on Thursday and charged with carrying a knife. Video filmed by a bystander shows two officers holding the handcuffed man on the ground, and one appears to be applying pressure to the man’s neck with his knee. The officer’s hand is on the head of the man, who can be heard shouting “Get off me … get off my neck.“
Coutain, 48, indicated in court that he planned to plead not guilty. The lawyer said Coutain was carrying a knife to fix his bicycle. A further hearing was set for Aug. 17.]
