He had every right to resist arrest. It's why the founders made sure we have a 2nd Amendment.
Wasn't Obama the president when this happened?

Yes, Obama was no better than Trump. He let it drag out without any ruling. It doesn't take years to investigate something like this.

Cops like this ^ are part of the problem. Everything is always an “us versus them” mentality. They will side with the cop 100% of the time no matter what the circumstances.
Yeah they impaneled a grand jury. Guess what they wouldn't indict. There was transparent investigation. Apparently you would rather not hear the truth. Or it doesn't fit the narrative you would like to be told. Again as a former NYPD officer you have to search every suspect. Its not a case of maybe I will search or maybe I wont. Every single person under arrest gets searched. They did their jobs. Its not about defending anyone. I know the procedure and they followed it. If you don't like it become the police commissioner and you change it.

Resisting arrest, is resisting arrest-the amount of necessary force needed to subdue the perp can be equally applied regardless of what they did before that.

At the end of the day, Eric Garner made it very clear--on video and audio--that he was not willfully going in. He put up a fight.
Yeah, I saw the video just like you did. He wasn't doing anything wrong when all of a sudden, these thugs came up on him and put him in a choke hold. He couldn't fricken breathe, and a body will naturally struggle to get breath when it can't breathe. But the thugs called it "resisting arrest". STHU with that bs.
