London man chokes after swallowing evidence while under arrest, public outraged

SPREAD THE WORD:

20-year old Rashan Jermaine Charles has died after apparently swallowing evidence while under arrest after fleeing from police, Sunday. However, some residents are pointing the finger at the police officer.


CCTV shows London police attempting to detain a man, who swallows something, possibly a piece of paper or other object, before being tackled to the ground. The officer and a bystander try to restrain the man before he appears to stop breathing. The Independent Police Complaint's Commission is now investigating the incident. The suspect was 20-year old Rashan Jermaine Charles, who ran into the store after failing to stop for police. Tributes have been pouring in for the now deceased 20-year old, with a friend saying he was visiting his grandmother. The full, unedited CCTV video of the incident can be seen below.

Some London residents have pointed to police brutality as the cause of Charles's death.

Simon Laurence, the Met's borough commander for Hackney, said: "There is likely to be speculation over the next few days regarding what led to this man becoming ill, so I would encourage people to keep up-to-date with the IPCC's statements, as and when they are released. "All police officers are fully aware that they will be asked to account for their actions - officers are not exempt from the law and we would not wish to be."

A spokeswoman of the police department spoke on the object that was removed from Charles's throat after he became deceased.

"The IPCC has obtained evidence which indicates an object was removed from [Mr Charles's] throat at the scene," a spokesman said.

Charles was rushed to the Royal London Hospital in east London, where he was pronounced dead. Police announced Sunday that a post-mortem examination would be held.

Residents of the London street where the incident occurred have been laying flowers outside the shop, and lighting candles. There has been calls of ridicule against the officer, and the police department says they will conduct a full investigation of the incident.

Users on Twitter have began the hashtag #JusticeForRash - where many people are calling the 20-year old's death a "murder". Some even claim he was "restrained and choked".
