The Wrong Way to Choke a Guy

Policeman subduing unruly Oakland A's fan with incorrect choke. Cops had to subdue some unruly fans at the A's game. This cop is giving the guy the old forearm bone on the windpipe trick--works well because of the discomfort, but bad, bad, bad for liability. On a real hyped-up guy, you'd have to crush the windpipe before you get any real results.

Of course, we all know the Right Way* to do this choke, yes?

*(Stick the guy's throat in the corner of your elbow joint, then squeeze the neck arteries with your bicep/forearm).
