    Which was induced by the excessive force used by cops to try to bring him in. They didn't even seek to tell him he was under arrest. Had reasonable force been used, he may be alive and the city may have avoided the inevitable civil suit.

    You have absolutely no idea what they told him or how they approached him. You have his friend (the guy with 27 felony arrests) starting filming just before it became physical. What you DO have is very clear video evidence of his refusal to comply. YOu then have evidence of law enforcement officials taking the man to the ground and then cuffing him. No tazing...no beatings...no nothing. You declare it excessive but the reality is that if dood had not been 200+pounds overweight and a walking heart attack, this would never have so much as made the local papers. He wasnt choked to death. He wasnt beaten. He wasnt shot. He had a heart attack because he was morbidly obese and he resisted arrest following his choice to engage in criminal behavior and being caught at it for the 31st time.

It doesn't look good, but maybe there's a perfectly valid explanation. I'd like to hear it.
    So Daniel Pantaleo goes free after applying a choke hold that results in a man's death while Mr. Orta does two years for a firearms charge? OK. In that video I didn't hear them read Eric Garner his rights. Did you folks hear it? Not that it matters. Seems like the NYPD do things their way.

    We may have that power, but if I were you I wouldn't exercise it.
