    Me too. I stood behind the Ferguson cop. Still do. But this NYPD fiasco on video, that cop is a punk trying to be Billy Bad-Ass Top Cop. That chicken**** little mother****er snuck up behind the big black dude and killed that guy. Maybe it is time for a good ol' "peaceful," American revolution against these oppressive alpha-assholes. At least a serious protest. They need to be shown just how "Billy-Bad-Ass," they REALLY are. Encircle them with a million protesters and they would **** their pants.

    Yeah, I've seen quite a few in my lifetime, and I've spoken out against them every time. I don't like that cops have to enforce such ****ty law there in NYC, but that's not on the cops. The only thing done wrongly here by the cops was an against department policy chokehold meant to subdue a very large resisting fellow.

    Please stop this. It's silly. If you have evidence that something of relevance happened in that supposed missing part of the video, I ask you to bring it forward. If not, then let it rest and admit it's of no relevance.
    I'm not going to stop pointing out your false characterizations, Hatuey. You are the one assuming you know what happened when you actually don't have the information. You are building a narrative on Eric Garner did nothing wrong, my telling you that you have no grounds to make the assumption is not a what it, it is a rational assessment of the lack of evidence on your part.

    I mean, you sail past the what ifs right into wholly ignorant assumptions of what happened.

    So, that means the second mention is the case. Thought so.

    Really? The thread is into page 189, that sort of silliness has been well covered already.

    You have access to the sealed Grand Jury testimony? I wasn't aware that you worked for the New York City courts.

    It's pretty clear, even given that gap, that Garner did not try to flee or violently resist arrest.
    No it isn't.

    He non-violently resisted arrest. That's not in dispute, by anyone.
    You don't know that.

    False characterizations of your what if arguments? They are "What Ifs". Do you have any evidence that something did happen? No? Then why are the alleged missing pieces so important?

    You are the one assuming you know what happened when you actually don't have the information. You are building a narrative on Eric Garner did nothing wrong, my telling you that you have no grounds to make the assumption is not a what it, it is a rational assessment of the lack of evidence on your part.

    The only thing he did wrong was make police notice him for stopping a fight.
