Jam: I agree. Don't resist.
It goes bad no matter what color or sex if you resist.
And I agree we should work to make this country greater.
Nothing to do with you Jam:
I resent the title of the topic 5 white NYPD choke African American guy for breaking up fight.
The title is so wrong and missleading.
And race baiting.
For one thing the video shows he was not chocked. You can not talk or breathe when your are being choked.
He was in a head lock.
I watch the video over and over. He says I cant breathe, I cant breathe, I cant breathe.
I taught defensive tactics for my department.
And you can not talk when you are in a choke hold.
The reason people die from a choke hold is because they cant breathe.
When you cant breathe, you cant talk.
The criminals are dumb they don't know you need air to talk.
I believe he was uncomfortable because he choose to resist and the stress might have brought on
a asmatic episode, or a diabetic coma.
But that was his choice and doing on so many levels form being over weight to repeatedly making himself a
target for the police.
So the choke hold is wrong and missleading.
The whole post is race batting.
But probably good for attracting viewers and advertisers.
He was in a head lock from 40 seconds to 54 seconds. On the video not time wise.
14 seconds in elapsed time.
If you want to be a thug, you got to be in shape and you cant have asthma.
We would tell that to all the asmatic thugs at the county jail.
Even if he was in a choke hold for 14 seconds that would not kill anybody.
But he was not in a choke hold because he was talking the entire time.
So the whole video is race baiting.
