This is only a snippet of a longer video showing a police officer at Camden Fairview high school in Camden, Arkansas lifting a Black student up in the air with a chokehold for having an argument with another student in the cafeteria. After the video went viral on social media, the officer was suspended pending investigation.

Such brutalization of young people may not seem extraordinarily aggressive to Kashmiris & Palestinians living under brutal military occupations but in US high schools it is not legal to treat kids this way even if they’re raising their voices in the cafeteria or classroom. It is however the violence & mistreatment Black & Latino kids are subjected to which leads to shooting them down on the streets or incarcerating them for minor offenses.
