Where do you see the officer chocking him? Just watched a frame by frame on channel 13 of all channels. Seems the arm is what they call "Seat belt maneuver" Also a chokehold is not a criminal charge but an administrative charge. Regardless this officer will be fired IMO.

I might ask the same thing as Blacks have acted as the aggressor towards whites in NYC for YEARS. BTW when the the rally for the poor asian guy thrown in front of the subway? How about the Bosnian kid in St Louis attacked and killed with a hammer? tp://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/dailyrft/2014/12/st_louis_police_vow_justice_for_hammer_attack_as_b osnian_community_mourns_losses.php

Where's the non stop national news?????? 24/7

I hope to see massive protests, riots, arson, etc in NY but I highly doubt it. NYers are softer than baby ****. We are slaves to the politicans and Corporations. They have won the war.



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

You are the one who is talking about a grand jury proceeding as though it were a jury trial, not me.

Name one thing I wrote about the grand jury process that isn't true. Quit getting your news from the likes of Al Sharpton.

"The grand jury merely applied the facts to the law."

Grand juries don't make findings of fact. They decide whether there's probable cause to indict based on the evidence presented. A trial jury makes findings of fact.

In this case, an NYPD officer is on camera killing a man whom he was arresting for selling illegal cigarettes. If this is not probable cause to indict, it is difficult to imagine any scenario at all in which a police officer could be held accountable for killing a civilian.

But then, your reference to Al Sharpton tells me all I need to know.

Probably the same thinking after a black attacks someone. The cop crushed in the head with a ax? The asian shoved in front of the moving subway? Any rally's or looting?
