Oklahoma cops refuse to release dashcam video of chokehold incident



Oklahoma State Police refuse to release the dashcam video that would prove whether or not a paramedic slammed the “door in a hostile manner” after being pulled over, leaving the officer no choice but to strangle him.

Witnesses believe Officer Daniel Martin was showing off for his wife – who happened to be in the passenger seat of his squad car – when he pulled the ambulance over for failing to yield last month.

Earlier reports had Martin claiming he was “assaulted” by the paramedic, which is why he had to place him in a chokehold.

But recent reports suggest the paramedic simply slammed the car door hard, forcing the officer to protect himself at all measures.

Much of the incident was recorded on a video camera by a family member of the patient the ambulance was transporting, including the part where Martin places one of the paramedics in a chokehold.

While that video doesn’t show what happened immediately after the paramedics pulled over, the officer’s dashcam should. However, police have refused to release it on the basis that they are “investigating” the incident.

Although prosecutors have refused to file charges in the incident, Martin has been placed on administrative leave. Paid, of course.

Martin claims the paramedics not only failed to yield for him but they also flipped him off. He also claims he was en route to an emergency at the time but it appears he was only picking up his wife.

The paramedics who were transporting a patient to the hospital, claim that Martin told them he was considering using deadly force against them.

It should be noted that in a separate incident, police in Texas have already released the dashcam video of an officer using his Taser gun on a 72-year-old woman – even though that incident occurred after the Oklahoma incident.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
