I sure hope I never get another beatdown by a cop, the would all crucify me for my past... lol.
you are right, dude was selling loosies. technically not even a crime in NY. for that.... well lets look.
"“I became a police officer to help people and to protect those who can’t protect themselves. It is never my intention to harm anyone and I feel very bad about the death of Mr. Garner. My family and I include him and his family in our prayers and I hope that they will accept my personal condolences for their loss,” Pantaleo said in a statement, according to NBC New York’s Steven Bognar"
Garner was protected and helped the **** out of I would say.
I think the winds of change are on the horizon, with body cameras being rolled out and citizens videoing the poiice (most often to thier dismay), that this can't keep going on.
The new videos that come out daily will eventually overwhelm the people and the police will be forced aways from it's warrior cop back to the citizen officer they should be.
