Officers fired over photo reenacting Elijah McClain chokehold

Wilson called the photos “disturbing.” A photo released by the police department shows three smiling officers, one appearing to put another officer in a chokehold — a restraint which was used on McClain before he died.

Wilson said the photos were sent to other officers, including Jason Rosenblatt, who was one of the white officers who stopped McClain — a 23-year-old Black man who died in police custody last year.

Rosenblatt replied “HaHa” when he received the photo, Wilson said.

Rosenblatt was among three officers who were fired.
