    One day someone gets pissed someone moved in on "their" territory and throws a punch. The "victim" comes back with a motorcycle chain. Next thing you know there's a gun, sad as it seems, little Suzy who was just playing on her doorstep gets an "accidental" bullet in her head.

    You can't just let "the small stuff" go. All that does is set a precedent for bigger stuff.
    Over f'n cigarettes? Yeah, bud, a 40 year old cigarette hustler isn't going to suddenly start shooting people and get into gang wars. Take it from somebody who actually grew up in an city and knows a thing or two about drugs. Besides, what the **** kind of gang members start a gang war over nickels and dimes? The 1940s Ace of Spade Boys?

    I think many conservatives feel conflicted here, criticize our "wonderful" officers in blue who enforce nanny state policies... or attack the minority rabble rousers who disobey these laws?

    Felons don't carry guns and don't assault people.

    The prosecutor has to work with the NYPD, and Grand Juries generally do what the prosecutor wants. He didn't want the personal political repercussions, so he made it so the Feds had to prosecute, and not him.

    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~

    Which is why the laws need to be changed so that an "out of town" prosecutor is brought in for such cases.

    from the OP article
    "Orta was indicted on weapons charges after an arrest on Aug. 2 in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island."

    His arrest has nothing to do with the filming. I imagine a defense attorney will claim they are related somehow. Seems Orta is of the "not my fault" crowed. Don't carry a weapon unless your authorized.

    Heya Maggie. That's Right it wasn't.....as the GJ saw the video and after the guy said he couldn't breathe the first time. They saw the cop release the Chokehold.

    I just don't know how they missed the guys face being mashed into the sidewalk......cuffs were on then.

    Why do I believe this guy? Normally I would write it off to paranoia or attention getting. But for some reason I buy his story
