Car-theft suspect choked to death after being caught by hulking ex-Marine.
NY DAILY NEWS ^ | March 1st 2010 | Daniel Edward Rosen and John Lauinger

Posted on 03/01/2010 11:11:46 AM PST by US Navy Vet

A would-be car thief picked the wrong ride to steal - and it cost him his life.

Yaosse Agbokou, 50, was choked to death when ex-Marine Daillard Paris caught him trying to steal his Nissan Altima in Queens Saturday night, police said.

Paris, 28, who is 6-feet-3 and weighs 240 pounds, was questioned by cops. But he was not charged in the death, which the medical examiner ruled a homicide caused by "compression of the neck."

That’s former Marine, not “ex-Marine”.

I’ve heard of suicide by cop, but not Darwin award by Marine.

“[Agbokou] was trying to drive off, but the car was stuck in the snow,” said Francis, who added that he had spoken to Paris. “He’s a good person who was mixed up in a messed-up situation.”

Don’t you just love it when the perps family comes out and says ‘he was good boy.’ /s

Points out the deference between law enforcement training and military training .... The difference between detaining a suspect and neutralizing a threat.

“Cops first said Agbokou “became disoriented” and lost consciousness while cops were placing him in custody. They later denied arresting him.”

Yea, I believe it, sure, I believe it.

We’ve had Epic Beard Guy and now we have Epic Muscled Marine creating an executive outcome by also taking out the trash with his bare hands!

Cops, lawyers, and judges now have less job security because of one less criminal on the street.

I think the comment was referring to the victim (the car owner). It was made by his friend, to whom he planned to sell the car.

It's true, though, that (female) relatives invariably show up when some young thug gets it, saying what a great guy he was.

‘I didn’t see any quotes from the perp’s family...’

My bad, that was the friend of the owner but I’m sure if they interview the family...

Agbokou, who lived nearby and worked as a cabbie, was taken unconscious to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Allow me to translate: Agboukou was an illegal alien via visa overstay.

There was recently an incident in Texas where a perp was shot, repeatedly, by the residents of a home he was attempting to enter without a resident. The amusing part was afterward, when the media went looking for the sympathetic female relative (of the type you mention); they got some maternal relative on who stated that she’d always known the perp was a bad seed and apologized to the residents for his actions.

I love Texas.

I do, but I admit I’m prejudiced. ;-) Prayers for this Marine’s future, that no charges are pressed and that he will be very successful at the job he just landed as a financial analyst. What a success story to have to start off with such a traumatic event. Served his country, educated, will begin a good job and some sleaze bag thief tries to bite and hurt him.

This guy was allowed into America and showed his gratitude by becoming a criminal. That wacko name seems Nigerian to me....NY Post said he was from some 3rd world hole called Togo

Agbokou's neighbors said they were shocked to hear that the Togolese immigrant was believed to have been trying to steal a car.
"He's a hardworking guy," said Harold Gennot. "Not a bad guy."

Some knucklehead named Radley is criticizing the marine for use of force. I wanted to sign up so that I could tell him about a friend at my plant in Detroit who not only had his car hijacked but got shot in the process too. Fortunately he survived but the perp was never found......

Um, I think the comment was about Paris, the former Marine who defended his property ie NOT the perp. (Admittedly made the same mistake myself on the first read-through.)

One of the worst countries on the worst continent on the planet. Their roving government backed death squads are highly regarded.

Seems that Agbokou was bringing all the native social pathologies with him. What a surprise.

“Some knucklehead named Radley is criticizing the marine for use of force.”

As opposed to the knuckleheads here on FR who, if it were a cop instead of a Marine, would be calling for the head of the cop and post how cops are no different than Nazis...F**cking hypocrites.

There is no such thing as a “former” Marine. You have Active Duty Marine, Marine Reservist, Marine Veteran, and Ex-Marine.

Both North and Murtha are Marine veterans, as they both were honorably discharged. You can not take honorable service away from a person; that doesn’t change the fact that Murtha was a D-Bag to the Nth degree, though.

An ex-Marine would be some one who was dis-honorably discharged, or given an OTH.

Just my 2 cents.
