    NYPD commissioner: Department reviewing Eric Garner case

    DECEMBER 7, 2014, 10:34 AM
    |New York City Police Department William Bratton discusses the department's response to the death of Staten Island man Eric Garner after a police officer placed him in a chokehold.
    Note that it is a video interview.

    This may be interesting to keep an eye on.

    Someone needs to review this. I am having a very hard time seeing a police officer use an against policy choke hold resulting in someone's death and he ends up facing no charges.

    I think technically he didn't commit a crime? Either that, or there's something screwy with that grand jury decision.

    Also, if he technically didn't, then the law needs changed so he technically would if he ever does that **** again. Or anyone else does.

    Unsure of the exact legality, but I think he did. One would assume that if a police officer used an against policy choke hold on a suspect resulting in the suspect's death then there is a charge there even if it boils down to a lesser charge at some other date. Involuntary manslaughter (or some other similar charge.) The compelling factor was the choke hold. The argument becomes the policy regarding them.
