Being taken down, choked, piled on top of by 4 men, having your head smashed to the ground....all combined with an individual with health issues...causing significant stress on the heart leading to cardiac arrest maks a ton of sense.
Agree completely here. Like I said, at the very least I think the cop was in the wrong, and based on what I've seen/read of this I'd say wrong enough to be worthy of a criminal trial to see if there was criminal wrong doing on his part. And ABSOLUTELY agree that it's ridiculous it even got to that point over something as simple as selling a cigerette on the street.A non-violent man who had a history of non-violent misdemeanors was killed by violence put upon him by some jock cops, that induced his heart attack.
However, having seen more info, I can at least understand how a jury may've not chose to go with an indictment. I still don't think that's the right choice, but I simply can see some minor avenues that I think could lead a person to possibly go the direction the GJ went...even if I don't think I would have gone that direction based on the info I've seen and read.
