Choke holds are not allowed.
Plus I dunno about in the states but to restrain someone while prone has just been made illegal here due to many people being restrained and dying like the poor chap did here.
Just because he was over weight doesn't mean he deserved to die.
He was telling the cops he couldn't breath and they ignored and continued choke holding him.
How anyone can defend what happened to him puzzles me.
But I know the real reasons....

I can focus on both just fine, thank-you.


Obviously you can't, because you keep bring up racism!

Crafty ploy BTW to answer me with out including the comment I made to you beforehand!

Alright.

Did the guy die from the choke hold ?

Or was it because the guy weighed 350, and was a walking heart attack?




If a choke hold is banned from being used by police then it should not matter.

The police used a illegal form of restraint.

His weight is irrelevent to that.

He was alive and well before the choke hold.

Plus he had Asama and being in that position cuts off his airways.

...

I can focus on racial oppression and government oppression at the same time just fine, thank-you.

Does that clear it up for you?

Because I'm appropriately calling out racial oppression doesn't mean I've forgotten or ignored other forms of oppression.

Seems like he died for selling smokes, actually.

Then why do you focus on racism, and leave out government oppression?

He received a death penalty in NY for selling UNTAXED cigarettes. NY liberal authorities are fanatical about Taxes and Tobacco.

No one said he did.

Yeah people tend to say ALOT of things when dealing with the cops. Most aren't even true.

I am sure the ats members that are cops. Have some stories to tell in that respect.




How anyone can defend what happened to him puzzles me.


Defend ?

Wasn't aware asking questions was 'defending' someone.

No it isn't!

Why do you choose to ignore those of us who are white that have suffered from the police state?

Then peoples real beef should be with the law makers.

The cops don't write laws. Their jobs are only to enforce laws.

So he died because the state of NY didn't get their 12 cents in tax revenue?

Oh, the humanity!

Everyone does know that homicide is literally ANY cause of death that isn't from natural causes, right?

Murder is a form of/sub category of homicide, so is accidental death.

Just wanting to undo some MSM spin I've seen. It seems like people are thinking that because the Coroner declared it a homicide that equals murder and a crime was committed, that's incorrect.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not casting a judgement on whether what happened killed this guy or not (I have no idea but I will say it does look pretty bad in the video), I'm just pointing out that claiming "homicide" in someone's death is an indication of wrongdoing is, well, ignorant.

To make it obvious: A death in a single vehicle car crash is classified as a homicide, so is suicide.

This stinks of a cover up for lots of reasons but the Coroner's report of homicide isn't one of them.

Then maybe the choke hold shouldn't have been used.

I wonder how many white deaths by the police has gotten this much 'outrage', and is being 'investigated' by the DOJ?

I can't name any.

They can't either.

I don't ignore white victims... but we aren't talking about a white victim and the differences between both the problems is massive.
