    It is how the courts of the united states has ruled for decades. Resisting arrest is legal grounds for lethal force, even if physical contact with the law enforcement officer is not made.

    What are you missing here Garner DIRECTLY challenged them to a physical take down, he would not submit without a violent physical resistance.

    Plenty of evidence.

    The experts who examined Garner say the cop killed him, because of the choke hold. Period.
    And it starts to be rather dull that you keep on making up crap.

    He didn't kick or punch anybody. There was no fight.

    Walter Scott had struggle with Slager. He fired his taser, Scott fled... and received 8 warning shots in his back.
    Slager was convicted of murder. So you're talking total nonsense that cops can just execute people when they resist.

    He had his hands up, saying don't touch me. The cop came from behind and for no reason started with choking Garner. He chose to do that. You have yet to address why that cop out of his own free will choose to use a illegal technique.

    He told them he was tired of being arrested and the "this ends now". It did. The officer did as trained as said the grand jury as said the DOJ.

    The choke hold was illegal. And here you are claiming he was trained to do that.
    /facepalm

    There was no intentional choke hold and it lasted less than five seconds. I don't know why you think your opinion trumps the grand jury and DOJ.

    He died because he was choked to death and I know because he was black you will defend this murder to the end.

    Why did he not immediately die at the scene if he was choked to death?

    Had he been choked to death he was have died during the choking instead of breathing and talking afterwards your attempts to make me out to be a racist notwithstanding. Do it again and you'll get reported.

    You need a source for the video of the arrest? You've never watched it?

    When you have watched and then might have a clue of what you speak get back to me. I'm not paid to do your research to get you prepared to discuss a topic here.

    1. Hey, sometimes you gotta improvise
    2. Who cares what the judge thinks he has no power here, the guy can look forward to a long an fruitful career
    3. Chokehold wasn't illegal, just not policy, he'll have a reprimand on his record, that's all, Garner died because he had a heart condition and resisted arrest, his own fault.

    Don't be silly, YOU and your ilk are the only ones who care about race, if this was a white guy we'd regard it just the same.

    Said who in this case?
    The people who look into if this guy will have a career probably care a great deal. The guy is suspended. The streets are safe.
    It was banned, so safe to say... illegal.

    All I see is that thug who now is suspended coming up from behind applying a banned chokehold, asap. Since nobody that matters claimed he has no other choice in fear of his life,... means it was the cops own choice and so own responsibility to do so. It killed him, so say the experts,... hence he is to blame. It really is of no wonder the city pays a massive debt to the family, and the streets are safe since the thug is suspended.

    If you want to watch the arrest video google it you don't to demand people do your reseach and legwork for you. If you choose to remain uniformed your post will be dealt with accordingly.
