Officers fired over photos re-enacting chokehold used on Elijah McClain

Three Aurora, Colorado, cops linked to controversial photos snapped at the site of a memorial for Elijah McClain were fired Friday. The photos were taken last October, two months after McClain died following a police stop that involved a chokehold against him. In at least one of the photos, the smiling officers (Kyle Dittrich, Erica Morrera and Jason Rosenblatt) appear to mock the chokehold.

One of the officers said this was an attempt to 'cheer everyone up'. Cheer everyone up by mimicking a choke-hold at a memorial for an unarmed young black man killed after an encounter with the police? Who exactly are these guys trying to cheer up?
