He actually did die on scene, EMTs cannot call a death only a physician can do that. Until that happens they will keep doing CPR until they get to
hospital even if they are already dead.
well since there wasnt a doctor on the scene you CANNOT state he died there but only by investigation and coroner can you say (and most likely did)
die on scene
but lets presume he did and/or they confirm it.
the investigation (you know that thing your supposed to do before accusing someone much less say they are guilty) has shown that the restraint DIDNT
KILL HIM but the swallowing of all those drugs.
a dosage that death was guaranteed but just when it would happen.
if he had complied (missed that part many people have) and gotten into the car the death would have happened on way to the station or in booking at
the very latest...
bet people would still claim it was the cops fault
the truth is he FOUGHT AND RESISTED POLICE. they had no choice but to restrain him until he complied or they had total control.
he had enough drugs in his system that most likely were swallowed to prevent being caught with them (STUPID MOVE) that not only KILLED HIM, but
probably caused him to fight and not feel pain. a fact that the police HAD NO WAY TO KNOW.
the technique is taught to law enforcement, security , military and hospital staff and employed thousands of times (or more) every year without
the worst that could be said and charged he put the restraint on too long...
but that DID NOT KILL HIM.. he didnt die from asphyxiation. the DRUGS KILLED HIM
the amount was so great it was WHEN NOT IF he was gonna die... it could have happened right when he swallowed them, in the back of the car on way to
station, being booked, or even in a holding cell...
the cops didnt know so getting medical treatment in time was all but impossible . given the amount the odds of calling for help right way would most
likely not have saved him.
they didnt "murder " (the term they are meaning by saying killed) him .
the cold ugly truth is this whole thing is RACIAL/RACIST ISSUE
The guy was black and the officer was white and facts be damned. Rule of law be damned . The police officers rights be damned.
But what is most wrong is CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT of "innocent until proven guilty IN A COURT OF LAW" be damned.
