    Re: "Michael Brown's virus" has already infected the NY city.

    After watching the video, I don't see anything wrong with what the officers did. Suspect was resisting arrest. They attempted to use non-lethal means to subdue the suspect and bring about the arrest. The correct response from the suspect should of been to simply let them cuff him, take him in and face the findings of a court. In this case, as in many others, if the suspect would of simply cooperated, the incident could of been avoided.

    Regardless of race, etc, the time to argue with a police office is in the court room, not on the street.

    Conclusion, another dead dumbass who brought it upon himself.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Ok so the officer was too dumb to realize that the chokehold was against policy? Such faith you have in our police forces.

Which is pushing a radical leftist system onto Americans. Even though I am very against racism in any shape or form, I am well aware that the idea is to create a revolution.

    It is a travesty the radical leftist have completely ruined any chance of good dialog coming out Fergason. The leftist only want to lay blame on our government. Anything to make capitalism look bad.

    No, that is false every time it is posted. He was not under arrest, nor told he was under arrest, nor were they arresting him.

    Why don't you post he pulled a gun on the police too?

    There can't be a "good dialogue" to come out of Ferguson

    Radicals see the police as enforcers of capitalism and they aren't exactly wrong seeing as law enforcement has a history of actively suppressing labor movements

    Uh, promoting capitalism and suppressing socialist/communist oppression is what a good society does.

    Nor from what I've seen, on COPS anyway, do they always do so until they have control of an agitated, hostile and aggressive suspect. Further, you nor I, know what was actually said before the video begins. It is very clear however that he is already arguing with the officers about the nature of the offense for which they were either arresting him or questioning him (we don't know which, since the person shooting the video didn't catch that part or it wasn't made public).

    Have you thought about the situation from the point of view of the cops involved, taking into account what they would know at the time? If so many are upset at what the police do, how many of them attempt to join the police? How many of them are willing or able to do what cops do everyday? Is it possible that some people are expecting superhuman perfection from humans doing a tough and dangerous job?

    Only a right-wing nut job would see it your way, I'm not surprised. Garner was killed by this policemen, and they should be held accountable.
