He was a nice guy and didn’t deserve it.
Maybe. I don’t know.
It is odd that black men nearly never surrender when being arrested. That is one thing that the media never notes when they are doing what they can to fire the race wars.
“If he was white this wouldn’t have happened”
Probably true. If he was white, or hispanic, or chinese or Irish or lithuanian or south american or nearly any other race, he probably would have stopped struggling once he was arrested.
Ask any cop, they’ll agree with the above statement.
Did he deserve to die? No. Did he deserve to be arrested? I don’t know. Chances are if he had stopped struggling such that it took several men to hold him down he might be alive. Did his behavior lead to his death? Probably, but the media hasn’t shown us any video from earlier in the incident. All we get is the dramatic parts. Probably because they really don’t want us to see it since it might damage their meme.
How you end up after the arrest mostly depends on your behavior. Choose wisely.
Should the cops be disciplined and charged with murder? I don’t know enough about the whole incident to judge. Hell, I don’t know enough to be sure that he WAS struggling, but it is likely.
I’d like to see the whole video, and if he submitted without a struggle, then I’d expect the cops should be charged with murder.
ETA: If his trachea was crushed, or if the cop was pressing his neck to the ground so hard that his airway was restricted, then why can we hear him telling the cops “Officer, I can’t breathe”?
