This video (that recently appeared on YouTube) purportedly shows security guards who tackle and put a man in a choke hold after an alarm goes off at a store. However, his friend reportedly tried to show that they were both deaf and that his friend has a receipt. The only account is on YouTube and I am looking for any further information, including the statement from the store.
The poster states:
This is what I know, The two guys who are deaf were in the Clothing store XXI and apparently they were shopping, Staff must have seen them do something to suspect them of stealing, but that doesn’t have any support or facts. . .
There was [sic] who looked to be the manager of XXI that said to turn off the camera because they didn’t want to get exposed for harassing and dealing with a situation that turned sour.
If this account is accurate, the store could face some serious liability in a civil lawsuit from battery to negligence to false imprisonment to possible violations of federal law.
If anyone has any additional corroboration of this story, please send it along.
