I'm waiting to read the testimonies before I make any judgement on this.
Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul

The New York Medical Examiner has ruled Garner's death a homicide. The cause of death was "compression of neck (chokehold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police."I see three things mentioned.
The cause of death was:
1) compression of neck (chokehold),
2) compression of chest
3) and prone positioning during physical restraint by police."
One-third chokehold. Two thirds absolute fatass. Hmmm. What to think. A very fat man resists arrest and dies of a heart attack while being arrested. Oh, and the most important thing to consider was the color of all of their skins.

Those are solid enough for me. And in those cases, they were performed by bystanders who probably have received little to no training. Obviously technique is important:A 2012 study showed that only about 2% of adults who collapse on the street and receive CPR recover fully. Another from 2009 (PDF) showed that anywhere from 4% to 16% of patients who received bystander CPR were eventually discharged from the hospital. About 18% of seniors who receive CPR at the hospital survive to be discharged, according to a third study (PDF).
I'm sorry, but I'm going to remain pro-CPR.In some cities that have less CPR training, the survival rate is indeed low, Sayre says. But in other metropolitan areas with strong training programs and quick EMS response times, half or more victims survive.
