There is absolutely no legal reason for the NYPD, or the arresting officers, to withhold that information.
Witnesses are not bound by the law to be silent. Anyone who saw the incident has a right to tell anyone they want their version of events. I haven't seen a single witness claim he punched a cop. Have you?
And of course, claiming he did try to flee or assault an officer is not just speculation, it's baseless speculation. No one has reported any such occurrence, thus there is no reason to try and claim it. In contrast, and as I said: If he had assaulted an officer or tried to flee, the NYPD have a strong motivation to tell the public, in order to justify their conduct. They haven't.
Thus, I am highly confident that when Garner resisted arrest, he did not flee and did not use violence.
"The medical examiner said compression of the neck and chest, along with Garner's positioning on the ground while being restrained by police during the July 17 stop on Staten Island, caused his death."
It's not like this hasn't been posted dozens of times and was splashed all over every form of mass media.
Are you confusing the Ferguson Missouri shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Wilson with this chocking death of Mr. Garner?
