Two deaf shoppers at XXI in Los Angeles, CA were approached by security and asked for their receipts. One was tackled and choked for an extended length of time while the other pleaded with security to stop, trying to explain that they are deaf. Police responded and arrested the alleged shoplifter for robbery and assault. By the looks of this video, it is hard to imagine how the deaf man laying on the ground turning purple from lack of oxygen assaulted anyone.
