    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A 17-year-old Weaver High School athlete holds a Hartford police officer in a headlock for more than 18 seconds at a fast-food restaurant. A rowdy crowd surrounds the two, cheering on the fight, not helping. Deputy Chief Brian Foley says it was a volatile situation and very dangerous for the officer.

    “He was beginning to lose consciousness according to his report, so it’s not pretty to see on TV, but this is what occurs out there and this is the new face of what is going on in the country in 2015,” said Foley.

    I think it is the new face of what is going on and what is being ENCOURAGED in the country now. It is now fine to run from the cops and/or resist. It is encouraged, in fact, by some segments of society. And this type of interaction/reaction is going to be happening more and more. JMO

    That teenager needs some severe punishment to teach him some respect for the police officer!
