Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
In the Garner case, the officers had made the decision to arrest him. Stop. No need to proceed with the argument. Once a law enforcement officer has made the decision to arrest you, you are going to be arrested. That doesnt mean you are guilty, doesnt mean you will be convicted, but it DOES mean you are under arrest. The SECOND you decide Oh hell no...I'm not either and move to prevent the arrest you are resisting arrest. Its truly that simply. Garner was not beaten down by a pack of cops with dogs and rubber hoses. He was brought to the ground because he resisted arrest. He didnt die because they beat him to death, he died because he was morbidly obese and had a number of associated health problems. He wasnt choked to death. He wasnt beaten to death. He didnt DESERVE death. He died because he resisted arrest and was physically ill.
Not every instance is 'abuse'. Not every instance is NOT abuse.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
misdemeanor or felony....what he was doing was against the law
he also had the opportunity to COMPLY with officer's commands
so again....do you want to live in a society of laws, or one of lawlessness?
it is a simple question
what happened was tragic.....using a taser could have killed him also......do you think that video would have gone any less viral?
when officers of the law tell you to do something, i was taught to comply
i can argue my case in a court of law another day....with an attorney at my side
i know better than to resist arrest, and that is what happened here
and if you dont like the laws, have them changed
but taxes are how states and cities provide.......and cigarette taxes are a BIG part of that in NYC
