Truly sad. This is one of those times I believe police was in the wrong.
Banned by the police department doesn't mean it was criminal.

Two different things.

It doesn't matter. It had been ruled an illegal move.

Do you have a link to that?

If I recall correctly, it was banned by the police department - but that doesn't make that choke hold illegal or criminal.

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 wonít be charged.
I usually side with the cops, but this one bothered me. He told them he couldn't breathe. They killed him for supposedly selling cigarettes, that's not alright.

A seatbelt hold is also very different from a choke-hold

My comment is to the legal aspect only.

Reselling something requires a tax to be paid even though a tax was paid, ie: car, retail items, etc.
