    Who knows and thats not the issue here anyway.

    The issue was he was put under arrest, resisted and lost his life.

    Just saw the video for the first time. How the grand jury came to that conclusion is beyond me.

    Yeah... because being in a violent choke hold gasp for breath and fearing for your life wouldn't induce a heart attack...

    Keep backing these killers. You're just like Fenton.

    These types of police actions need to be dealt with. Perhaps with enough media attention, and with help of the White House and Congress, something can finally be done about this travesty.

    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.
    **** them. They can take their alpha-male, bully attitude and stick it up their ass as far as I'm concerned.

    I generally side with the cops. But not on this one. I can't believe these Rambo wannabe's got away with this. Well, actually, I can.

    It won't be long before the populous starts shooting back if they don't get a grip on their dominance obsession. Homey don't play dat ****.

    I'm glad I'm a law abiding citizen and I don't have to cow-tow to these mother****ers.

    Yes we do know ! He didn't charge the cops, he didn't say he was gonna kill them, he didn't wave a gun, all evidence shows he wasn't a threat. His death was ruled a homicide and if I'm not mistaken the report read that being choked was part of the cause. It's obvious it was part of the cause but of course people will still believe what they want!

This, unfortunately, falls into the same category as the person who gets hit by a car while crossing the street in the middle of the block at 3:00 in the morning wearing a black jacket.
    Absolute bull you know what!

    LOL, this officer wasn't a killer. The other guy was a fatass who was on the verge of a heart attack any day.

    So the officer gave this guy massively blocked arteries and 200 pounds of extra blubber with a choke hold?

    The Police Officer never intended to " Murder " anyone. He tried to arrest a Man that was resisting arrest.

    The autopsy showed No damage to the Mans windpipe.
    The man was obviously overweight and unhealthy.

    Eric Garner chokehold death: NYC officer will not be indicted, lawyer says | masslive.com

    "...The Medical Examiner ruled Garner's death a Homicide and found that a Chokehold contributed to it.

    A forensic pathologist hired by Garner's family, Dr. Michael Baden, agreed with those findings, saying there was Hemorrhaging on Garner's Neck indicative of Neck Compressions.".."


    You'd think you could at least get an indictment, if not a conviction, on a "Homicide" that was at least "contributed to" by a Barred "Chokehold."

    EDIT
    Also heard/characterized on CNN:: He was heard saying 'he couldn't breathe' ELEVEN times.
