AFRICANGLOBE - Footage from the Montgomery County Jail in Dayton, Ohio, shows police officers repeatedly pepper-spraying a Black man in a restraint chair during the booking process. The footage, published by local community activist David Esrati, was captured on several CCTV cameras in the jail and on a hand-held camera used by one of the officers to film the booking process. In the footage officers are shown searching him and taking off his shoes and socks, before placing him in a seven-point restraint chair. Sometime during the restraining procedure an altercation ensues, and one of the officers shoots a paper-spray jet at the 37-year-old’s face at point blank range.
