    Oh I don't agree with that at all. You most assuredly might be able to say that if the choke hold wasn't sufficient to cut off all oxygen.

    Re: NYPD officer in Eric Garner chokehold death not indicted by Staten Island grand j

    Just watching the video there should have been charges. This appears to not have been done in self defense and after he said "I can't breathe" they continued. I don't know the full story, but given what I see this was excessive force by the police resulting in death even after the suspect told them he couldn't breathe.

    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.

    Yeah, those other 31 times he'd been caught for the same thing don't mean a thing.

    They never should have approached him, he was committing no crime.

    A white police officer kills a black man and is not indicted for it.

    Move along, folks. It's just business as usual in the good ol' US of A.

    So wait, if I'm arrested in the past, that means the cops can at anytime attack me? I disagree.

    Micheal Brown's death is not an anomaly.
    Do you also have statistics for commission of crimes and arrests for blacks per 1 million and whites per 1 million?

    But the officer didn't do that.

    Possibly blocking the arteries to the brain, which causes unconsciousness.

    Sure, after 20 times you prove you cant follow the law. I don't care what happens to you.
