    1. There is no doubt that Garner was resisting an arrest for illegally selling untaxed cigarettes. Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik put it succinctly: "You cannot resist arrest. If Eric Garner did not resist arrest, the outcome of this case would have been very different," he told Newsmax. "He wouldn't be dead today.

    "Regardless of what the arrest was for, the officers don't have the ability to say, 'Well, this is a minor arrest, so we're just going to ignore you.'"

    More stupidness and just an attempt to look to exonerate the police for screwing up. It's recorded. If you're arresting someone, then say so and read them their rights.

    Stop judging people by the color of skin.

    Police do not have to announce they are arresting someone before they restrain them. In fact it is common practice to wait until after restraining someone to announce they are under arrest and then read them their rights.

    In fact they may get brought into custody taken in for booking and then be given their miranda rights.


    We also need to remember that the video is only a snipet of the entire event and does not show everything.

    Skin color never entered the equation. No need to judge them by the color of their skin when you can judge the stupidity of their statements.

    2. The video of the July 17 incident clearly shows Garner, an African-American, swatting away the arms of a white officer seeking to take him into custody, telling him: "Don't touch me!"

    That must just be in New Mexico. Because in civilized society, it is a requirement to announce your authority, intent and reason for trying to make an arrest if you don't have a warrant.

    You can't just walk up and restrain someone.



    Again, this must be a New Mexico thing. The only time Miranda rights aren't read immediately after the arrest is if the cops / detectives are trying to coax an admission out of a suspect before their attorney arrives.


    That man carried on a soliloquy. There was time to say you're under arrest.

    Darn skippy don't touch me. If they didn't announce their intent to place him under arrest, then the white, blue or polka dot officer has no reason to place their hands on him.

    But like I said, I understand how black men challenging white police authority makes some white men feel like their authority is being challenged.

    You shouldn't hate people because the color of skin. If it was a black officer this wouldn't mean nada to you....only white people get under your skin.

    Oh that's so cute. Now you're starting to sound like those homosexuals you "political conservatives" are always saying are talking about people hating them. :laugh:

    And news flash for ya. There was a black officer present and she is just as culpable as the others.

    And there is something extremely wrong in a prosecutor granting immunity to all the other cops as long as they testified before the grand jury.

    Gosh they wouldn't be surprised when I tell them that a white man speaking through his white privilege made that statement. :laugh:

    Like shallow Al, I don't expect white men resting in their white privilege to believe anything other than the white privilege narrative. I mean it has been a mainstay for hundreds of years.
