Jailer Chokes Inmate to Death on Video But Still Hasn

Robinson - Inmate
Smith - Corrections Officer
Richardson - Corrections Officer

While seated, Robinson leans toward Smith, who is standing in front of him. Smith responds by wrapping his forearm under Robinson’s neck while Richardson pepper sprays the inmate and the two men fall to the floor.

Smith then gets on his knees and grips Robinson’s neck with both hands in what is known as a guillotine chokehold. Robinson bucks to break free of the chokehold before he collapses. Richardson pulls Robinson’s hands behind his back and handcuffs him. A third jailer then enters and puts his foot on Robinson’s back.
All this time, Smith has been choking Robinson for more than a minute. Just before 9:46 p.m., he lets go but it was too late for Robinson.
Doesn't mean he won't eventually get charged but I am think if the DA had video evidence of any regular person choking someone to death they would have been charged pretty quick.
