    This makes me ****ing sick. The police will do anything to punish those that prove they did wrongdoing. Example: Remember when many police departments made it illegal to film police officers while on duty? The cops will try everything to punish those who prove police misconduct/brutality.

    Yes, because possible retribution of State against those reporting against potential abuse is a good thing.

    We prosecute drunk drivers even though they have not harmed or killed anybody yet (and statistically probably never will).

    We prosecute people who pull the plug on their terminally ill spouses even though the spouse is going to die shortly anyway, possibly even within a matter of hours or days.
    The chokehold is just media distraction.

    The death was caused by the officers putting pressure on him while he was on the ground. Everyone likes to ignore the factors given by the coroner outside of the first line. The corner's report makes his obvious that it was a combination of factors, not the one. Take away some of those factors and you probably wouldn't have had a death.

    The pressure the officers put on him while he was laying prone was what most likely killed him combined with his medical issues.

    I think you have it all wrong..... to suggest he died as a result of a choke hold put on him, with him still being able to breathe mind you, and ignoring the pressure of the officers on his back and his struggle to resist them is "ignoring the elephant in the room".

    He was still capable of breathing....

    If you disagree.... stop breathing, start doing push ups (to stimulate his physical struggle) and start saying "I can't breathe" every few seconds (not repetitively) and don't breathe once. Do this for 1 minute. See how long that lasts.

    What makes me sick is your willingness to believe a criminal at his word when he is speaking out against police officers.

    As if criminal scum don't lie.

    Why didn't he film the police very time he was followed or harassed?

    Let me rephrase it, then... he died due to the officers' actions. Fair enough.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I can believe that completely. No matter the profession, if someone from the outside tries to make someone on the inside look bad and cause trouble for them, the pack mentality can take over and any slack that may have been offered to anyone else would go out the window for this guy. I don't think that's right, but it's human nature.

    You can't just let "the small stuff" go. All that does is set a precedent for bigger stuff.
    That dear sir is some good wisdom that was passed on. Glad to have been the first one to like that.

    Breaking the law is breaking the law, whether minor or big, it can't be passed.

    People shouldn't be let free just because the law they broke was "minor."
