A mother in Baton Rouge, Louisiana has filed a federal lawsuit against local police officers, as well as Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul and the city of Baton Rouge

The suit comes one year after an incident when a police officer pushed the 17-year-old son of Tenesha Cannon, identified as both D.C and Dylan Cannon, to the ground, and proceeded to put his knee on the boy's neck. The incident occurred less than two months after George Floyd died from injuries sustained in a neck restraint by officer Derek Chauvin.
