    This is how BS false narratives like " hands up dont shoot " get their beginnings.

    He wasn't choked to death. The Coroners report proves that.

    Maybe that had something to do with the GJ decision.
    I'd want a jury to review this incident - there certainly was enough there for an indictment since there was actual video of the event taking place. I don't get it....

    I'm not sure that's true. I think the police may just be advised against using it.

    It was ruled a homicide.

    It is the policy for them not to use it and why? Because it's dangerous and can cause death.

    It is curious, to say the least.

    If then, the choke hold was a contributing factor, that on it's own is enough to indict and let a jury see the evidence and make a ruling. I would go as far as to say the police abused their power, used a banned choke hold which contributed to the death of a suspect, failed to initiate CPR on said suspect after he stopped breathing. Even with the guys weight, prior health history, etc... still enough to at least indict given there was full video of the entire arrest available. Did the coroner call it a homicide?

    So what's not enough to indict?
