I looked at it as a health care worker and it was pathetic. The guy was basically murdered, his air supply cut off (and he's yelling this 11-12 times) and no one is stopping this. Over cigarettes? Wow, this was absolutely one of the worst cases I've seen of obvious brutality with no just cause. He wasn't a murderer or rapist trying to flee the crime.

Given his size and his health, he couldn't have fled if he wanted to. Which makes this murder, pure and simple.

He said 11 times he can't breathe.

I'm not sure death by choking is the appropriate punishment.
You know if you say you can't breathe you can actually breathe. You can't speak unless you can breathe. Even after he was cuffed and sitting up without a single cop on him he was still speaking. He wasn't choked to death. He died because he was a fat slob who has asthma, diabetes and heart problems.

You can't say "I told you so/I was right", or spend any settlement money, if you're dead.
Where should he prove his point? On Judge Judy?

If this keeps up, there will be retaliation....one for one. Itís goijg to happen, and a lot of people are advocating for it.

African Americans saw Cliven Bundy turn his guns on federal officers, refuse to comply, and walk away clean. That told me all I need to know.

W/his Napoleon Complex, probably much bigger than he actually is, since, in real life, pantalones is nothing but a little runt who jumps a man from behind.

In the media and in the courts afterward. You (rhetorical "you", not you specifically) dying in an attempt to prove your point seems, well, counterproductive, to be polite.

I would have zero interest in being a martyr, personally.

Police need to be stripped of some of their authority, this would solve a lot of the problems immediately.

They need to understand what their authority is and we need stiff penalties when they exceed it.
