I don't doubt that force was required to restrain him.
The issue was that the force became excessive, resulting in death.
The cops were guilty of the same groupthink brutality as with Rodney King.
Their vindication will result in increased loss of citizen rights and safety.
While I support the jury system, mistakes are made.
This is one of those mistakes.
The CA citizens deserve the brutal police behavior that the jury condoned.
I have been a cop and understand the mentality quite well.
