So were the officers aware of Garner's health problems? If they were aware excessive force could have killed Garner then yes, this was not an accident. If they weren't aware then this was in fact an accident. For all we know, Garner himself might not have been aware of his own health problems.
Whether or not the cops were aware of Garners health problems are irrelevant. The cop knew the choke hold he used was illegal. Its illegal for a reason... Its becuase it's inhuman, harmful and evedentually results in peoples deaths...
