    When Fox News says the cops used excessive force, that says a lot !

    It makes no difference. Its resisting.

    People cannot simply raise their hands and say " don't touch me " and then dictate the terms of their arrest

    Thats not how it works.

    Your putting the lives of the Officers and the public in danger by making it more difficult to apprehend a potentially dangerous individual.

    The cop should be charged and put in prison.

    YES! Why clog the system, waste tax payer money, endanger people, etc. over this crap. It is the same strong arm tactics that see cops arresting people for not signing a speeding ticket. They have the personal info... send them a fine.

    Seems like it yes, but from what I understand this guy had a History of doing this.

    Makes no difference anyway.

    As soon as a Police Officer says your'e under arrest or " put your hands behind your back " thats it.

    You comply. If you were wrongly detained you settle that in Court.

    If it were not for the choke hold, and subsequent take down, he wouldn't have experienced a heart attack. I push you, caused you to fall and strike your head on the edge of a curb. The blow caused you to have a bleed in the brain, killing you hours later. Can I really say I didn't kill you?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Now you're fishing for reasons to justify this killing. Predictable. It doesn't matter what the video shows, you will dig deep to back these reckless policemen. Like I said, predictable.

    Maybe people shouldn't be getting arrested for such stupid things... tickets and fines work. But I bet that doesn't fit your narrative.
