You know.. In my country we don't usually wrestle down a person who gets arrested.. The cops like ask politly to put your arms up and then one of them goes around you asking to lower your arms behind your back.. Our cops try to talk before actually take action which endangers more people..

In my country that happens as well. Coincidentally, my country is the USA.

The scandals and bad decisions, like what's posted in the OP, make the news. The everyday doesn't.


You consider Florida a part of America? Bah!!!

Coroner ruled it a homicide, so it doesn't sound very pre-existing to me. Unless you're saying it's his fault for being arrested while fat?

It doesn't sound pre-existing to you? So then what was it? Post-existing? Current-existing? Was Garner free of any health ailments and the arrest gave him asthma, obesity, and heart/blood pressure problems?

It undeniably aggravated the health problems but were officers aware of Garner's immediate health problems? I'm going to wager a 'no'.

"The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, citing both the choke hold and the force applied to Garner’s chest. A history of asthma and high blood pressure made Garner especially vulnerable. Choke holds have been banned by the NYPD since 1993, according to a variety of news outlets."

How convenient you did not include the text immediately following: "Just because Garner’s death was ruled a homicide doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a crime. It’s up to detectives, prosecutors, judges, and jurors to make the complex decision about whether a case like this should be brought to trial and, ultimately, what the punishment should be."



Police officers seem to be out of control and protected by the government. I really hope this doesn't become a crazed police state because it certainly will lead to civil war II.

Wow. You seemed to be determined to blame the victim here. Not really sure if there's any point talking to you....

Coroner > your opinion. Sticking with that, shaking my head and walking away before this gets retarded...

Funny, I don't recall blaming the victim. An accident by definition doesn't have active perpetrators.

Have a nice day.

of course I'm NOT joking. those people treat life so lowly, they must be punished.

So you're offended they treat life so lowly yet you are perfectly okay with hanging them? Not just the cop who performed the chokehold but those around him as well?

I am speechless.

DrDoomz said:

It wasn't the pile up it was the banned choke hold that contributed to his death. Tho I'm pretty sure the (highly unnecessary) pile up had a little to do with it as well...

So which was more responsible for Garner's death? The chokehold, the pile up, or Garner's pre-existing health problems?

of course, it's called justice. don't you agree people who treat life lowly should get punished? those around him were a part of the murder, since they ganged up on him and didn't stop when he started choking.

I agree, but this was no accident.

I love the whole "if you can't blame the victim's actions, blame his fatness instead!".
