It's not up to me to prove something that never happened.He didn't? Have a link to that?I've seen fewer with a lower resistance to lying than you. He was never arrested. They wanted to search him. The city paid out big time for that because it was a violation of his civil rights.The police cannot arrest anybody unless they have a charge against them. The officer seen him selling cigarettes.No he was NOT. He had in the past. Someone called the cops because two people were fighting. By the time the police got there those who were fighting were gone. One of the cops recognized Garner as someone who had sold single cigarettes in the past. Let's remember that. The terrible crime of reselling your cigarettes.You are the one who is lying. He was selling untaxed cigarettes, stealing business from the legitimate store who called the cops on him.They had NO reason to arrest Garner. He had done nothing wrong. It was an attempt at an illegal search. (Now here is where you lie again about the facts)In this case, correct. In the Garner case, he resisted arrest, and it's common for police to subdue a suspect by taking them to the ground in such a case.My former coworker was a retired Cleveland police officer. He asked "So WTF do they expect us to do? When a suspect fights you while being arrested, we're supposed to say, okay, if you don't want to be arrested, we'll go away. Perhaps another time."No truer words...from Matt Taibbi.
Following all of this amazing protest news underscores the folly of all those cover-ups in cases like Eric Garner's - the numbing certainty that even obvious brutality cases won't be punished leaves people furious not just with police, but the whole system.
except in this case the guy was subdued and cuffed, he was no longer able to fight, but the cop kept his knee on his neck when there was no fight left. It was murder. That cop and the ones who watched and did nothing should get the maximum sentence. But that does not excuse the looting and destructive violence in our large cities.
The cop decided he wanted to search Garner again. He had NO justification for doing so. Garner told him no. The cops jumped him.
It's amazing how upset people have got because Garner once maybe made a dime off a cigarette while just across town people had costs the country billions of dollars with their crimes and nothing at all happened to them.
He had no cigarette's on him.
