Though it's a few pages in, I'm just going to go on a line and say that you're a terrible person. I understand what you're saying when you say that
we "don't know the whole story", but we don't need the whole story to know that one should not defend this. There is no reason at all this man should
The guy may have been a drunken a-hole who got violent because he was confronted about his public urination, but he didn't deserve to die for it. In
fact, he didn't even have to die because of it. I'm sorry, anyone who knows choke-holds should understand how dangerous they can be. They can be
used to subdue someone, and they can easily be used to kill someone. If the guy knows choke-holds, then I'm sure he knows a bunch of other holds as
well that would've detained the person without killing them. If he's never been trained with choke-holds, then why the hell is he even using one!?
There are plenty of ways he could have held him and kept his arms from reaching anything like a weapon, especially with his wife nearby......his wife
who is a cop and also trained!!!
There were plenty of options to use here, and they went with one of the most terrible ones. I have to agree with the guy in the video as well, the
wife of all people should understand what an illegal choke-hold is, and rather than stop her husband, she let him use it while yelling at the guy who
Here's a question for you?? Have you even been sat on like that while in a choke-hold?? In the video, all I kept hearing the guy say is "You want to
be hit again??", which I assume is because the guy isn't holding still. Well, having a fat guy sitting on your back like that while choking you will
cause anyone to panic. The pain on your spine from the weight, as well as being bent backwards because of the choke-hold, on top of not being able to
breathe, yeah, good luck not panicking then.
Watching the video again, it doesn't look like he's pulling back on the guy too much, so the pain on his spine may not be as bad as I was initially
thinking. I used to practice wrestling moves on my brother a lot, as well as had them done on me. That spinal pain can hurt. With that said,
though, the guy on top of him was huge, I'm sure some claustrophobia kicked in as well. I doubt many people could hold completely still in said
situation, which sucks, because then cops can use that as a means to justify their further use of force. Harm the person, cause them to flail and
panic, then harm them some more because now it's justified. :
