Montreal cop kneeled on Black teen's neck during arrest

Montreal’s mayor said Friday she wants answers after images emerged of a young Black Montrealer being restrained by a police officer who put his knee on the man’s neck.

“City council voted unanimously last summer to put an end to strangling measures by police,” Valérie Plante said Friday afternoon. “For us, it’s something that’s important and for which we have a consensus among all elected officials in Montreal. We want to shed all the light possible on this incident.
