    But I'll try visiting sometime.

    Why? Any reason you are certain of that?

    Ummm... so resisting the government's lawful actions is lawful? Lmao. Eh alright.

Apparently the kid was skateboarding somewhere he wasn't supposed to, and he got lippy with the cop. Why wasn't THAT video on CNN? Why wasn't the race angle of the "knockout game" played up more in the media?
    You were ok with that too, weren't you? The kid was committing a crime and resisted - or at least indicated he was going to resist. Clearly the officer had to put him into submission to stop or prevent submission. Right?

    The knockout game very much was on video. And the race issue very much talked about.

    NYC taxes aren't bad. I'm paying more now that I live in suburban Suffolk than I did when I lived in the city. Though overall I do pay a boatload in taxes.

    The policy in question was mayor Bloombergs if I recall. He's really a Republican.

    Seriously? A New York cop chokes a low-level bad-behaviour perp and people should protest liberalism?

While I don't know that the officer would have been convicted, I believe a trial on a lesser charge would have allowed the community to pass judgement more fully and would have informed the police on community standards as they relate to police enforcement.
    It is true that people are emotional. It is also true that watching a video does not give one all of the relevant facts. We do not put people through a trial simply so others can feel good about themselves. We have Grand Juries who evaluate the evidence the prosecutor has to determine if there is sufficient evidence to charge someone with a crime. This is a check against tyranny. Without it an officer of the government can charge anyone with any crime no matter whether there is evidence or not. By having a dozen or more of your neighbors review the evidence and then vote to charge or not, the prosecutor is stymied from being an agent of tyranny.

    Justice was done. Set aside your feelings and reason.
