    Re: No Indictment in Chokehold Death

    Does the eggshell rule apply here?

    Doctrine that makes a defendant liable for the plaintiff's unforeseeable and uncommon reactions to the defendant's negligent or intentional tort. If the defendant commits a tort against the plaintiff without a complete defense, the defendant becomes liable for any injury that is magnified by the plaintiff's peculiar characteristics.

    Considering the NYC tax on cigs the bootleg business is understandable.

    Source for your statistics?

    The Fox News host's numbers, meanwhile, came from a fatal injury database maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    A search in 2012 for deaths caused by "legal intervention" as a result of the use of a firearm -- that is, a police shooting -- yields just the numbers O'Reilly cited Monday night. In the 15-19 age range, the database shows 20 white people killed in 2012 and 14 blacks.

    The problem, experts say, is that the United States doesn't collect accurate statistics and verify nearly enough information to show definitive trends in police shootings.
    Bill O'Reilly, Nick Kristof on race and police killings - CNN.com

    Averaged over seven years, that's about 420 deaths a year. While BJS does not provide the annual number of arrest-related deaths by race or ethnicity, a rough calculation based on its data shows that black people were about four times as likely to die in custody or while being arrested than whites.

    It never should have gotten that far. police had no evidence he was currently selling bootleg cigarettes but used that as an excuse to go after him.

    and about a thousand other links, do you really want to dispute that's how Brown was/is still characterized?
    Characterizing him that way is a lie. There is no dispute he smashed the officer in the face. Are you claiming he "gently" slugged the officer in the face? That he was "gentle" in the store?

    Depends, are you choking the airways or the arteries?

    Again, resisting arrest did that. Violating procedure, especially where it results in death is a career ender.

    He wasn't currently selling cigarettes, in fact, he had just broken up a fight..

    Head lock, not choke hold. Medical proof of that.
