Garner broke up a fight and was then attacked and murdered by police. Assassin Pantaleo absolutely does perform a choke to the windpipe, not a blood choke - the intention was to crush and kill, period. Another assassin holds Garners head down on the cement. They didn't need to touch that citizen whatsoever, let alone outright murder him in cold blood.

Video clearly shows that a choke is what was being performed until he was not only out, but then dead. What really lends hatred to this is how one of the police tells bystanders "He's okay" when Garner was just killed. Those police deserve to be met with not only fear and derision, but aggression and loathing. New York police are disgusting defending this behavior, but US attorney Donoghue admits it "was in effect a choke hold". Black and white, they openly admit it, but no consequences for those police assassins.

Why did they attack Garner in the first place? What was the reasoning? I've watched the video several times - police are power trip assassins.

And then we come to Orta - rat poison in the meatloaf effected many prisoners, yet no investigation even after it was medically examined and determined to have been poisoned. New York police should never, ever expect any sort of honest respect. All because police were caught on video murdering a citizen who did the right thing.

Garner can be choked to death at the hands of the police, and there are no repercussions.

Trump could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and there would be no repercussions.

The Leader of the Free World tells four US Congresswomen to 'get back', and then doubles down on his comments.

I think black folks in this country know what they have to lose, and what they are losing right now...

Good little Barr. Sit! Stay!!

Now put on a cardigan sweater and talk all calmly in front of a fire as though nothing bad is happening in our country.

Pantaleo is small compared to Garner. When somebody like Garner doesn't fully comply in the fashion Pantaleo believed due him, it was emasculating and he was forced to escalate the violence to gain control.

"He is NOT going to walk."

There's a greater than zero chance that he will be fired, but not much greater. The odds of him getting prosecuted and convicted are much much smaller than that.

Taxes.....

They knew him because he was known to sell loosies.

That isn't a good enough reason for any of that pile-on. Did you read the article about Orta? The police are adversarial at minimum and prevented nothing by this attack and murder.

Why did they arrest Orta? What is the reasoning for solitary for four months? The microwave? The meatloaf? It reads like horror fiction. I can honestly say that they are domestic terrorists, regardless Orta selling weed months back.. And then arresting his mother to forcing him into their system again.. What -------- police are. Total, unadulterated scum.

Because he captured video of police involved in a murder.

Five years later the perps are still walking around footloose and carefree.
