Why is it that one side should be able to get away with banned actions but not the other?
It was not a chokehold. It was a seatbelt take down that was taught to PO Pantaleo in the Academy.

We have even done this before but you aren't about to let that stop you.

The city ME believes Mr. Garner died of an asthma attack due to the hold, but other experts suggest he died of a heart attack while resisting arrest. Either way, the cop won’t be charged.
Good.

Next.

Yeah, but that's whitey-no one cares. Can't treat people the same when they are different races. Black privilege, doncha know?

Remove race if you don't like that aspect and just look at the action of choking and killing a man for the accusation of skipping a tobacco tax for selling a individual cigarette. Because that is what he was choked for, he was killed over a $1.00 dollar tax.


I don't want police in my area to be the Judge, Jury, and Executioner. If it was worth choking the guy over, then is should have been worth prosecuting and allowing a jury to make the decision. But we all know that form of aggression was not called for nor was the guy a threat to anyone.

Then they brought in witnesses that PO Pantaleo was taught this exact move in the academy. Don't let that stop you though!

That’s what attorneys are for, but if you want to try the vigilante stuff with an officer go right ahead, it will cost you $1,000 and an obstruction charge if you lucky, death if your not. This coming from someone who leans libertarian and knows the 4th amendment

Then the next day where was Mr Garner? Thats right hustling as usual. Then Mr Garner knowing that he would was going to be arrested chose to fight a group of cops. Mr Garner is not some innocent choir boy. Mr Garner almost put PO Panatleo through a glass pane window. Watch the video. Eric Garner was wildly overweight, He had heart problems and diabetes. He was breathing when he said he could not breathe. You can't speak if you can't breathe. He was breathing after being cuffed. He was breathing in the ambulance. He died 1 1/2 hours later in the hospital. People that say that he should have been arrested without incident have zero idea of what they are talking about. Have you ever had to wrestle with a 300 pound male who does not want to be arrested? Eric Garner died of numerous medical conditions and his choice to fight with the cops.
This^^^^

I realize that we have a large number of anti-LEO types that think they can take a violent, 300lb male down with a one hand tied behind their back. Garner died because he was stupid-not because he was black, or because the police "killed him". His own actions, and his physical conditions did.
