Sin_City_Superhero: Are the perps in jail?
Snarfangel: [www-tc.pbs.org image 260x210]R.I.P. Garner.
Speaker2Animals: Does not mean a crime was committed.
Speaker2Animals: Does not mean a crime was committed. All "homicide" means in a coroner's ruling is that it was not accidental, natural causes or suicide. Not saying there wasn't in this case, but the media trumpeting "HOMICIDE" does not mean anyone has been charged.
Sin_City_Superhero: Are the perps in jail? Yeah...didn't think so.
doglover: Speaker2Animals: Does not mean a crime was committed.Doesn't mean a crime WASN'T committed. If there's cops out there actually arresting people for selling cigarettes, it will be a vice cop. Vice cops are the lowest form of judicial life. They're even worse than meter maids. Quite often they're even worse people than those they arrest.Suspended, no pay, in jail while they suss out ways to prosecute for murder and make it stick is a good way to start the investigation to see if a crime really was committed.
Uchiha_Cycliste: why the hell are the EMT's and paramedics being punished too? what are they supposed to do, bum rush the armed and clearly psychotic officer as he kills a man? there is no possible way that doesn't result in more deaths.
Babbs: If he wasn't fat and didn't have asthma he probably would have lived./ Just sayin'
Fluid: Putting someone in a chokehold for selling untaxed cigarettes? Damn, they aren't screwing around.
chuggernaught: ** Newsflash **When a cop kills a suspect in a shootout it's also ruled a homicide. /How did you expect the medical examiner to determine the manner of death, suicide?
rillettes: Hate to sound ignorant, but what's a loose cigarette? Is that cigarettes sold individually?
hitnrun74: Tragic and stupid. Obey the police and fight with them in court. You will always lose and apparently sometimes die if you decide that you aren't going to comply with them. Yes, the cops broke the law and are definitely responsible for this poor man's death. Hopefully justice will be served and the racism angle won't have it's run through the community. Sadly, it wouldn't have happened without his arguing with them. Let them cuff you, take your ride, get your PD, and tell your story. I do believe they have to prove you guilty of selling loosies or whatever crime it is that they are arresting you for and I guarantee they aren't going to kill you if you obey their orders. I've been arrested. I know the drill, guess what? Not even a scratch, because "yes officer" works every time and "Oh hell no" doesn't work even once.
Cat Food Sandwiches: Babbs: If he wasn't fat and didn't have asthma he probably would have lived./ Just sayin'Not to mention if he had obeyed authorities.
jehovahs witness protection: I sentence you to LIFE of paid suspension.
