    And, since the police are sworn to "protect", remember that no one needs to be protected from a guy like Garner. Protect me from the gang banger who likes to rob people at gunpoint. Don't protect me from the guy selling cigarettes on the street. I can protect myself by not buying them.
    You think every officer who enforces the laws agrees with them? Regardless of whether they do or not, they must enforce those laws.

    With that being said, don't try to argue with the cops over whether or not you broke a law. You don't plead your case on the streets. You do it in court.

    IF you like stout you MUST try the porterhouse Oyster Stout at fraunces tavern, have you been?
    Heard of it, but never actually found anyone to risk trying it with me...

    You also don't send five cops to wrestle some poor sap to the ground and put him in a choke hold to enforce a law against someone who is not a threat to anyone. That's just common sense.

    How would you have arrested Eric Garner?

    I'm Not sure how much a risk a stout would be in a financiak district tourist bar. *shrug*.


    open door is pretty cool too, then there's that one with the odd gastro pub name around the corner from fraunces tavern as well.

    It seems some people in NYC feel very strongly against selling nicotine cigarettes on the streets.

    Why did he need arresting? Couldn't they just give him a ticket?

    Well if the cops are going to apply choke-holds and murder those who try to argue then I expect the courts will be kept quite full.

    I think the question is... Would you have arrested Eric Garner for selling bootleg cigarettes? Was he actually that much of a threat to the community? According to certain people on this forum, he was a damn gang war waiting to happen. Think about it. A 40 year old guy selling cigarettes on a street corner was a turf war waiting to happen.

    I wouldn't. There was no probable cause.
