Police officer Corporal James Johnson, of Wilmington, North Carolina, was recently indicted for choking a 16-year-old suspect while he was handcuffed.  The whole incident was filmed by a camera that was inside the police car, and for months the police department has been preventing that video from reaching the public.

The family and the prosecuting attorneys have seen the video, and according to court documents, officer Johnson can be seen choking young Tyrell Rivers while he was handcuffed, and the officer can also be heard yelling “Do you want to die in this patrol car tonight?”.
