    I live in a far bigger "nanny state" than NYC and we dont have this issue.

    So they shouldn't have arrested the felon carrying a weapon because of how people might take it? I would prefer the felon is off the streets myself.

    It is about the same thing as why an Afghani might not be a fan of the US after his village, including friends and family, is droned by the US.

    Not rocket science, just predictable human behavior.

    The cops are protectors of the status quo, and the status quo is pretty damn rotten from the perspective of young black and latino men in most cities in the US.
    I bet the young black men who don't commit any crimes don't like being profiled, but you know what? They don't go to jail because they aren't committing a crime. This man is a criminal and he got caught. How many criminals shout Harrassment! whenever they are approached by the police? I don't care if they were following him. He is a felon who had a weapon on him. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Go straight to jail.

    Maybe he did, but the cops took his camera?

    We Americans loves our police state, don't we....

    That is to be expected in a society that institutionalizes torture.

    Nah. I'm glad the guy is off the streets. I'm just questioning the motives of the police after the Garner thing. These two claim they've been followed since Orta made the video. Considering the source, I doubt it, but transparency of action by the police in these things is pretty important just now.

    I like transparency as well. I don't trust the source of the accusations, but he will get his day in court.

    I don't trust him for anything at all other than his already demonstrated preference for thuggery. Just so long as NYPD stays clean in this, it'll be fine. I sure hope that hand gun was loaded. Orta won't walk away from that one anytime soon.

    Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo applying a fatal chokehold to Eric Garner on July 17, was indicted by a grand jury in Staten Island, New York.




    According to the Staten Island Advance, Orta was indicted on weapons charges after an arrest on Aug. 2 in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island. "They lying on me, they doing me wrong," said Orta after he pleaded not guilty in August, noted the New York Daily News. "I've been harassed by the police since this whole video." Orta's mother told CBS New York that police had been following her son ever since he filmed Garner's death (video below).....snip~

    The charges he faces have nothing to do with the filming of the incident. So I don't think anything of it.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
