Law enforcement's use of neck restraints such as chokeholds and strangleholds should be prohibited, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) said Wednesday.

(CNN)Law enforcement's use of neck restraints such as chokeholds and strangleholds should be prohibited, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) said Wednesday.

"The deaths of George Floyd, Eric Garner, and other instances where neck restraints were used by law enforcement have called into question whether these restraints are controllable, safe, and non-lethal," the organization, which represents neurologists and neuroscientists, said in a statement.

"At minimum" law enforcement and policymakers at the federal, state and local levels should classify neck restraints as a use of "deadly force," the organization said.

"Because there is no amount of training or method of application of neck restraints that can mitigate the risk of death or permanent profound neurologic damage with this maneuver, the AAN recommends prohibiting the use of neck restraints," the statement read.
