I didn't say he was public enemy number one.
He was a criminal with a long arrest history.
Seriously, what are the cops supposed to do if
the subject just plain doesn't wanna be arrested?
They can exert force or walk away. They ain't paid to walk away.

Nonsense. You’d simply prefer that blacks remain mealy mouthed. You guys think race baiting is equivalent to defending yourself and not complaining about injustice.

In THIS case, Sharpton did the right thing. Period.

Chokeholds are ILLEGAL in the NYPD.

Long arrest history = for nothing more serious than selling loose cigs. Are the cops supposed to kill citizens for that?

He didn’t want to be arrested because he wasn’t committing a crime, and the cops never proved that he was committing one. Moreover, no witnesses said that he committed one either.

They ain’t paid to walk away, but they’re not paid to kill you illegally either. If there’s a choice, walk the eff away!

3. Garner, 43, had history of more than 30 arrests dating back to 1980, on charges including assault and grand larceny.

Do you mean to say that if a crime is "minor" and the subject
decides not to be arrested, the police should just move along?
That'd be a slick way not be arrested for minor crimes; "Just say no."

Another false narrative, and more fake news. Eric Garner wasn't killed in cold blood. He died because he was a fat slob. He just happened to croak himself while resiting his 31st arrest.

who is being victimized by this request? who is being insulted? People pick and choose which media sources they sit down with all the time. Why do you feel entitled to broadcasting their pain?

What crime was he committing when they illegally choked him?

Who cares? The world is a better place now that Eric Garner is dead.

Resisting arrest.
(and I'm not defending the choke hold.)




BTW, you didn't answer my question.

Not surprising since BLM is notoriously racist against whites.

Remember the "White people to the back?"
