Why don't any cops publicly say anything against officer Pantaleo or any other cops that are killing innocent ppl?

If cops want people to trust them more...the good ones should speak up


NEVER MIND. Written in anger and haste. I can't edit the original.

Some of you people need a civics lesson. Many of you are truly "low information voters" and have no concept of the law, or how the Grand Jury process works.

its always amazed me that for a society where everyone plays on their phone 8 hours a day, that nobody spends just 20 minutes to google things like "how criminal court works?" or look up specific politicians to help them decide on who to vote for instead of blindly voting democrat or republican.

We have a very ignorant population.

At a time where information is more accessible than ever.

Sad that someone had to die over something so petty. If a cop tells you to do something then just do it. So what if you are some wannabe "harda$$ thug" and don't want to listen to a white cop on a power trip. Newsflash, its never going to end well. So just listen to whatever they have to say, yes sir, shake your head, go on about your business, simple as that.

Anthony Baez
Dec. 22, 1994
Mr. Baez, 29, a security guard, was playing football outside his mother’s Bronx home when a stray toss landed on a police car. Mr. Baez died after an officer applied a chokehold while trying to arrest him.

What happened: Francis X. Livoti, who had been dismissed by the force for using an illegal chokehold, was convicted on federal civil rights charges and sentenced to seven and a half years in prison, two years after he won acquittal in a state trial.

They will use serious force to bring down any perp. We have seen this time and time again. Ever seen a baseball game when the (usually white) fan runs onto the field. They usually tackle them very hard. They will not be nice about it if you do something you should not be doing.
The officer's choice in the level of force used resulted in him killing someone. How is it brainwashing to hold the officer responsible? Sure, Garner was probably a POS and a petty criminal. But so what?

Disrespecting the revenue generators is NOT against the law, no matter how much they want it to be?

All Garner had to do was turn around and submit to being cuffed. If he had done that, he would be free today to continue his criminal life style behavior.

What does that have to do with my post? Yes, he resisted arrest. Should that result in his death?
