Lawsuit Against Crackdown on Mott Haven Protest Calls Kettling A German Military Tactic

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 27 – The Mott Haven protests in The Bronx on June 4, 2020, attacked by the police, have given rise to another lawsuit.       

  Filed in the docket of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on November 26, the day after Thanksgiving, and found there that day by Inner City Press, the lawsuit names NYPD's Commissioner and numerous officers. 

  The complaint says more than 250 people participated in the Mott Haven protests.

It says the kettling strategy the NYPD deployed "derives from a German military tactic of encircling an enemy army with a superior force before annihilating the trapped military force."  

The case is  Jones, et al. v. The City of New York, et al., 21-cv-10082 (Unassigned)
