I walked past a young guy and his dog was trying to walk ahead and choking cos the guy was pulling on the leash

The problem, is that particular dog hasn't yet learned to walk with a leash properly. The dog won't choke if it stops pulling on the leash. If the dog was really choking that badly, it would ease up and stop pulling so hard.
The leash is there for a number of reasons. Such as protecting the dog from getting ran over, or attacking a human, or attacking another animal. It is about creating safety for that dog, and others, and not about being cruel to the dog.0
