New video shows police offered no medical help to unresponsive Staten Island dad Eric Garner
NY DAILY NEWS ^ | Juky 20,2014 12:42 AM | BY Corinne Lestch , Rocco Parascandola , Larry Mcshane

The seven-minute clip posted Saturday on YouTube shows an apparently lifeless Eric Garner, whose head droops to the side as at least eight cops stand nearby.

“C’mon, guy,” one cop says to Garner, the only thing on the video that suggests any of the officers was trying to help the Staten Island man. “Breathe in, breathe out.”

But Garner, on his side with his eyes closed, doesn’t move at all — even when the officer slaps him on the shoulder. The side of his head remains flat against the concrete, and his eyes never open.

At one point, another officer is seen taking a cell phone and a pack of cigarettes from 43-year-old Garner’s pants

Pantaleo, an eight-year veteran, was placed on modified duty Saturday as cops and the Staten Island district attorney investigated the case.

Pantaleo was stripped of his gun and his shield and assigned to work desk duty.

The police union immediately denounced the move as “completely unwarranted.”

Yeah, killing a guy with a banned chokehold that is against nypd procedure is acceptable to quite a few people.
Union goons, badge worshipping morons, and those conditioned to accept such behavior as “okay” and “within reason”.

In before the badge worshippers.

Where’s a taser when ya need it?

Or have those been banned?

The guy apparently broke up a fight. Sure he was mouthing off and obnoxious but the choke move was over the top.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

It was also unnecessary. They knew where the guy lived. They could have picked him up at any time when they built whatever case they had against the guy. There wasn’t a need to arrest him right then and there.

I didn't even see it as mouthing off. He was tired of being picked on. His ONLY crime has been selling cigarettes, and the undercover, gangsta wannabe revenue collectors didn't like that. He's an easy mark for tatted up thugs.

Apparently, there are exceptions. One article I read said the policy has been modified several times since 1993. Also, the autopsy results haven’t been released yet.

From Newsday =>

An ambulance was called and Garner went into cardiac arrest while he was being taken to Richmond University Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead, Bratton said.

So Bratton says he went into cardiac arrest during ambulance transport. That doesn't sound credible given the video. ______________________________________________________________

Could you imagine the stories that would be spun if there was no video?

I’ve always thought that law enforcement for most cops should be like the military; do a four or five year stint (when you’re young & fit), then move on to a real job. Even use something like a GI Bill as an enticement (because otherwise few would spend five years in a dead-end job).

Here in NJ we’ve lost many young cops due to tax caps, and we are left with more-expensive, middle-aged cops that could never catch a perp. The union rules have made the cops ineffective.

That is truly incredible; those cops should be jailed for life for what they did to that man. It wasn’t attempted murder, but that man would have lost years of his life behind bars and carried a serious criminal record for the rest of his life.

There is no other way to stop cops from doing that, and it lends credence to blacks who insist that they were set up.

Mark Steyn had a good piece in May that I just found and posted the other day...the title is not what one traditionally thinks about with gun control.

Gun Control:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3179560/posts

From the article by Steyn:

“As I always say in these circumstances, if you need to shoot a schizophrenic, a teenage partygoer, a lame septuagenarian, a confused hobo, etc, etc, etc, you’re doing it wrong. “The book” is the problem. “The book” is what needs to change. Anyone who goes into law enforcement assumes the risk that a traffic stop might turn out to be something more. Mr Tolan, Miss Ramsey and the rest of us should not have to assume any such risk. In routine encounters with law enforcement, a citizen should not have to weigh the likelihood that the officer will decide to shoot him dead. That’s about as basic a standard for civilized society as one can muster.”

That officer should face charges. There are 4 officers there and he’s already on the ground.

No doubt the cop will say: “but I had to keep him in the choke hold because he was still struggling.”

You dumb ass cop — he was struggling because he couldn’t breathe. You were depriving him of air and killing him. Who wouldn’t struggle for their life in that instance.

Sorry haters, this guy did not die from the choke. In fact, after watching the video, he wasn’t even ‘choked out.’ Look at his hand when he’s on the ground, he’s got it open and up. This guy died of a heart attack from exertion, obesity, struggling and having those other cops on top of him.

I don’t even follow this stuff. You would think that I do, but I’m just coming across more and more of these things in recent months as a casual observer.

This was another one from not too long back out of Moore, OK. The police were called to a movie theatre parking lot regarding a separate incident about drunks or something. A citizen pointed out something that had also occurred that appeared to be a family dispute. Turns out a mom had slapped her 19 year old daughter for lying and having a naughty mouth. The father ended up dying. The lead up is not on video, but the aftermath is. The spouse took the video. Like this New York man, he was basically a goner right there.

Good article. While unarmed law enforcement is useless, I think Britain tries to minimize the number of these incidents by separating cops from paramilitary types; armed cops (who are humans like the rest of us) need to think twice before shooting. It must be difficult as various scenarios play out in their minds, but something must change.

Yeah, I don’t want cops unarmed. I think Steyn was being sarcastic and comparing it to the calls for gun control after killings by civilians.

I’m not anti-cop. I am a little wary of them now. I am seeing a lot more of these instances, and it’s really sad to me to see people die that didn’t have to do so.

You are welcome for the links. This is another fairly recent one that stands out to me that you may already know. I won’t send no mo’ after this. ;)

It's an observation of regret. It's saying "think of what we could have stopped, if only we had the foresight, and the courage needed..............."

It's also a warning to those of us who are concerned about the future of this country. We may be the ones called on to meet those government thugs at our own front door, so be ready to do what needs to be done.
