    It didn't happen while the cops were subduing him. He was talking the whole time. Haven't you seen the video?

    :rolleyes:

    When somebody you are crushing or choking says "I can't breathe", they obviously mean that they cannot breathe freely.

    Actually it's quite possible he couldn't breathe, but it was not because of the maneuver by the police officer, it was because of his health problems.

    However police run across many people making the same claims. They are simply trying to stop police from subduing them by creating a false condition that may make them stop.

    Once again, if you can't breath you can't talk. But you commies never let science get in the way of good propaganda, do you?

    Do you expect life and crime to be risk free?.....do not put yourself in the position where the police needs to step in and think all will go well....don't break the law....even a little.....and if you do don't resist arrest.....

    To be fair, speaking only involves exhaling some of the air you already have in your lung.
    BREATHING involves not being able to take a partial or full breath back in because of weight compressing your chest.

    The guy said he couldn't breathe 11 times. That's a lot of air.
    The coroner found hemorrhaging in his throat from being choked.
    Choke holds are illegal.
    The coroner's finders were that the choke contributed to other health issues that brought eventual death.

    LESSON OF THE STORY: If you don't make a stink with police as they question you or even arrest you, they won't need to try to wrestle you to the ground by force.
    When it takes 5 cops on top of you to get you down with one choking you, you are putting up an awful lot of resistance.

    The courts have ruled that he wasn't murdered.

    This is what you call a sudden "in custody" death. The arrestee was obese and violent. Obese people, once handcuffed, can not get full breaths in each respiration due to the change in their upper body when their hands are pulled back behind them. This individuals uncooperative behavior did not allow the officer to double cuff the suspect and he slowly suffocated due to insufficient respiratory function.

    This appears to be a text book case of asphyxiation due to heavy exertion and reduced respiratory flow.

    While the officer is not culpable there are extenuating circumstances brought on by the suspect that will mitigate the final outcome for the officer. This all depends on his training, following established protocols and disciplinary records, if any.

    These people can be violent, yelling, and thrashing one minuet and 30 seconds later in cardiac arrest due to the hypoxia (acidosis) slowly building.
