A disturbing video posted to Facebook this week shows Las Vegas police officers attacking and choking a man for selling bottled water without a license.
The video shows a man identified as Jimmy Williams getting manhandled by cops. His only “crime” was trying to earn a living by exchanging money for water in a mutually beneficial arraignment with tourists.
When the video starts, Williams is passively sitting on the ground as one officer has him in a choke hold. Williams appears to be in a state of panic as he struggles to breathe.
“I can’t breathe,” he manages to say as the cops falsely claim he is resisting.
Experts say an invasion like this is tied to recent wet weather and has occurred five or six times over the past 30 years.
LAS VEGAS — A migration of mild-mannered grasshoppers sweeping through the Las Vegas area is being attributed to wet weather several months ago.
Nevada state entomologist Jeff Knight told reporters on Thursday the number of adult pallid-winged grasshoppers traveling north to central Nevada is unusual but not unprecedented and they pose no danger.
Knight says the insects don’t carry disease, don’t bite, and probably won’t damage anybody’s yard before they’re gone in several weeks.
