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...

It was banned. This is not the same thing as being illegal but it can be fatal if used improperly and for an extended period of time.

Agreed. This case should have gone to court. The coroner even ruled it as homicide, no?

I understand the police have a difficult job but to put someone in a chokehold, then choke them to death when really they weren't even violently resisting and selling unlicensed cigarettes ... ?

Gimme a break.

Some cops are way too drunk on the power their job entails.

The choking to death never happened. Garner was not choked to death.



America's corruption is a much bigger problem then just this case. But a drop of rain in the ocean of corruption.

"The city medical examiner has ruled the death of Eric Garner, the 43-year-old father whose death in police custody sparked national outrage, a homicide, saying a chokehold killed him.

The medical examiner said compression of the neck and chest, along with Garner's positioning on the ground while being restrained by police during the July 17 stop on Staten Island, caused his death."

The article goes on: "Garner's acute and chronic bronchial asthma, obesity and hypertensive cardiovascular disease were contributing factors, the medical examiner determined."

Let's not omit details. Currently, I am trying to get a copy of Eric Garner's autopsy which I assume has already been conducted. Not easy.

Well as weed becomes legal in more and more states cops have to find other reasons to kill people. ;)

An eighteen-year old adult teen. Be careful, the lone term 'teen' could mislead people into thinking Brown was underaged when he was not. Also, he was not shot for stealing cigarettes.

The choke hold aggravated Garner's medical conditions (ailments unknown to police) which ultimately lead to a heart attack as he was transported to the hospital. Let us aim for specificity, not ambiguity.

Lets not cherry pick, but if you want to get technical then get ready for some hurt.
