Interior Minister Christophe Castaner has banned the use of choke holding anybody on Monday. As a response to the ban and angry protesters, French police have thrown hand cuffs on the ground. They argue that holding down somebody by the neck is a way to keep them stable to handcuff them and this tactic is only being used to handcuff someone. The police are allegedly upset that they are being accused of being racist and being more violent with minorities in the same way that the U.S has. The French government is currently working to relieve tensions and debate.
