NEW YORK — A state appeals court has reinstated a New York City lawor putting pressure on a person’s diaphragm while making an arrest.
Thursday’s decision reversed a lower court ruling, while.
In its reversal, the New York Supreme Court ruled the law is clear in what officers can and can’t do.
Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch said the ruling is a direct blow to the NYPD’s fight against violent crime in the city. He said the PBA is now considering its legal options.
