Taser still might have been a better choice than a choke hold. Assuming it worked.

Tattoos make a person look like a "psycho thug"?

Have you ever seen someone with tats on their neck and face? Makes them look like they've done time in the pen. Not a look I want to see on a cop. Not in my neighborhood. I want my local LE looking neat and professional. If they can't mange that then look for another job.

NYPD allows neck/face tattoos? That's pretty damned progressive. Not many places with uniform rules allow tattoos above the shoulders.


I, obviously, have not seen a picture of the officer in question.

I was referring to his record.

I looked at pics from the internet and didn't see neck or face tattoos on Officer Pantaleo. However, his left arm appeared entirely covered from his wrist up past his elbow. Right arm covered above the elbow. Both legs appeared covered from the ankle up past the knee. If it had been my call I would not have hired the guy as a LE officer.

Guy resisted. Officer used excessive force. Officer denied using a chokehold. Autopsy shows otherwise.

Two lousy choices = dead guy.

NYPD must decide what to do with the officer, reinstate him to active duty, suspend him or terminate his employment.
