New Mexico officer charged with involuntary manslaughter after man put in neck restraint dies.
A Las Cruces, N.M., police officer has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after a man he put in a neck restraint died in February, the Las Cruces Police Department announced Friday.

According to the police department, Las Cruces police officer Christopher Smelser detained Antonio Valenzuela during a traffic stop on Feb. 29.

According to the police department, Valenzuela had an open warrant for a probation violation.

As Valenzuela fled on foot, the police department used stun guns to try to subdue him until Smelser caught up to him and used a “vascular neck restraint technique to gain control.”

Emergency medical staff were called after the incident and “attempted life-saving measures which were not successful.”

The incident was investigated by New Mexico State Police. After receiving the autopsy on June 4, the police department announced on Friday that it would be dismissing Smelser.

“Words are insufficient to bring comfort to Antonio Valenzuela’s family, but I extend my sincere condolences for their loss,” Las Cruces Police Chief Patrick Gallagher said in a statement.

Will Mexicans riot? No, because they have to work for a living. Most around here, through the quarantine, to feed their families and produce food for others.

Charges against a cop are meaningless in a case like this UNLESS they are followed by

SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION OF THE PERP

followed by

INCARCERATION
