    The case has nothing to do with Civil Rights. He was a black guy who couldn't take the beatdown he got for illegally selling cigarettes on the street..

    I hear ya, but to be fair, "deadly force" is like a GUN, I don't think for one minute they INTENDED to kill the man or even hurt him, just to get the fat bastard to shut the hell up, stop resisting and COOPERATE. So, sorry, no murder. Maybe possible involuntary manslaughter. But again, this is the police, not a civil case, and you have a LAWFUL RESPONSIBILITY to obey the police. This guy did not. Garner was an idiot who put up all this stink over getting busted selling a damn stupid cigarette. Let's face it, anyone standing around selling cigarettes illegally ONE AT A TIME ain't no Einstein. The entire thing was stupid all the way around. IMO, the police should have just written him up a ticket, handed him a piece of paper and WALKED AWAY. I can only guess that Garner's continued verbal protests and words just kept escalating the matter further and further until it came down to a battle of egos to assert their authority one way or the other. In the end, the police HAVE to win. They represent the Law. That's why you don't dick them off.

    When you scream I can’t breathe, don’t you think it’s time to stop? They murdered him and got away with it. Seems cops have the right to murder.

    There are lots of idiots in this country. I don’t think we should kill them.

    The liberals of New York City are the ones who established the policy of beatdowns on cigarette salespeople in the city.

    Not I.

    For libs to persecute the cop for just following orders the liberal leaders gave him is unfair. I'm sure the cop in question would have been happier just flirting with a donut waitress at the local Krispy Kreme rather that beating down Mr. Garner.

    Who said it had to do with civil rights, other than you?

    Not at all.

    People who can't breathe, also can't scream.

    LOL. We have thousands of dumb laws in this country. You think breaking a dumb law is deserving of a death sentence.

    The DOJ examines civil rights cases with local law enforcement, not routine supervision or oversight of the local PD's.
