    That is precisely what the Congress is about to do with the president.

    It's completely unacceptable and if this is a legal use of force the laws need to be changed. Police are given FAR too much power when they are legally allowed to kill you in the process of apprehension and not acting in self defense.

    It looks like his intent wasn't to kill nor is this typically lethal, but with his asthma, obesity and other factors it resulted in death and they should have reacted when he said he couldn't breathe.
    So if you are tall and grossly fat and you wear a sign saying you have asthma is that sufficient to prevent your arrest?

    What is the point of doing it if it involves cops?
    There is still a salient point here. The Mike Brown case does seem to divide pretty hard on partisan lines. This case however seems to be pretty bipartisan. I think that is an interesting fact.

    There are the extremes with the wingnuts and moonbats doing their normal falacious bs. But it seems most see how this at least should have gone to trial.

    I encourage you to move to New York and volunteer for Grand Jury duty.

    Lol.. So far your arguments are:

    1. Another bad guy bites the dust. Yay.
    2. He was fat.
    3. You are all guilty because you hate cops.

    You're really not doing too well at this debating thing.

    The coroner did rule it was a "homicide" - which doesn't make that a fact but certainly is relevant. I haven't read the coroner's report, though. Have you? What did the coroner say caused the death?
    It was a man caused death. It was not a lightning strike. It was not a bee sting. It was not from injuries due to a car accident. It was not from a slip, trip nor fall.

    We equate homicide with murder. It is not always murder.
