At least 12 cities and municipalities in the United States are starting to ban or have banned the use of chokeholds in policing, according to information gathered by CNN.
Those include: Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, Broward County (Florida), Miami, Chicago, Washington, DC, Minneapolis, New York City, Denver, and Houston.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom has directed police in the state to stop training officers to use "carotid holds," and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has said he wants police across the state to restrict the use of chokeholds.
Internationally, France has banned chokeholds by their police departments.
