Another over reaction/harassment by cops lead to dead

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.1871486

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

"I can't breathe! I can't breathe!" Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

"When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time," Garner's wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.

Horrible.

The cops will call a "Code Blue" and no one goes to jail.

Looks like he was high on crack. He resisted and the cop was half his size. Looks like the choke hold was released after he went down and they had a cuff on him.

Maybe if he didn't resist he'd still be alive. His fat ass probably crushed his own lungs.

Agreed, but cops are still trash in this situation. anyone who hits 400lbs should be put down for the greater good.

this is pretty sad.. But cops seems to have their eye on him for whatever petty reason..



But, at the same time if you are being placed under arrest, nothing good can come from resisting. People need to understand this.

Damn cops, they should have used flowers and rainbows to put the cuffs on him instead.

Can I just say that if you can say "I can't breathe" that means you can breathe? Probably died from a stress induced asthma attack and, you know, health complications from being 400 lbs.

EDIT: Obviously because he was black he had to be choked out...

I was waiting for that...

In your professional opinion, what should have been done differently, and how exactly was murder committed?

I can't comment on what happened before the video rolled, but it seems the man broke up a fight and bystanders were corroborating his story. Honestly, I don't know if that's right. Maybe the police witnessed him breaking the law.
Maybe an investigation will show the officers arrest was never justified. I didn't see anyone there pressing charges or a victim of anything.

What I can comment on is the use of force against someone that was not resisting once on the ground. His palms were extended and face up and he was 100% submitting while complaining that he couldn't breath. There is no need for 1000lbs of force on the guys body and a lethal choke hold. None at all. Police are trained that "officer safety" overrides everything. The law, your rights and your life. That's the problem.

He wasn't a threat to anyone... why not simply TALK to him? Force should be a last resort

It would be easier to talk to cops if they weren't yelling at us to stop resisting
