A defenseless dad, lying handcuffed and unresponsive on a sidewalk, received zero medical help from cops who instead just emptied his pockets, a shocking new video shows.

 

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.

 

Even after the arrival of an EMT four minutes into the video, no medical aid is provided to Garner. He’s instead just loaded onto a stretcher and wheeled off.

 

Cops say he was pronounced dead a short time later after arriving at a Staten Island hospital.

 

 

NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, caught on another video putting Garner in a chokehold, is shown standing a few feet away and chatting amiably with a uniformed colleague.

TL:DR

 

Cops try to arrest man for the illegal sale of smokes. Man resists arrest. Man proceeds to have a cardiac event and later dies.

 

NYC cops and EMS people put on admin leave. Family shouting police brutality from the rooftops. Rev AL Sharpton comes in like a carrion bird to gorge himself fat off the scandal.

This is clearly a problem with police brutality.  Now that Al Sharpton got involved, it will be more of a race circus that masks the real problem.

You fail to mention in your TL:DR that they used a choke hold which is specifically against the rules of the police force.

It's in the last line of the quote. :)

I don't know if I would go so far as to call that resisting arrest. The guy didn't want to go (who can blame him), but that alone isn't enough reason to jump on a guy from the back and choke him...

When they say "illegal sale of smokes," are they just talking about cigarettes that tax hasn't been paid on or whatever?

This kind of thing is only going to get worse. Subduing a suspect is tough, but the officers need to be responsible for that suspects health while they are in custody. It's pretty silly that this was over some cigarettes.

I saw it on TV I assume it is the same video. It will come down to the chock hold (which NYC police are not allowed to do). A union rep was explaining that the chock hold used was a different chock hold. I have not idea

The use of the choke hold was an obvious breach of policy.

 

The attorneys will have a field day with this. They need to connect the choke hold to the cardiac arrest. The challenge will be proving what killed him, the 300+ lbs of extra body weight and possible poor cardiovascular condition were already a ticking bomb.

Living in NYC may have been a ticking time bomb as well, but I don't think it takes a supergenius or even a decent attorney to connect a chokehold with cardiovascular stress.

from the constant NYC news I get to see here is the summary to date:The guy was selling loose cigarettes instead of by the pack. Not sure why that needed so many cops to take down this obvious number one criminal down.

 

The 'choke' hold is now the center of attention. The latest from I believe the police union was that it was a submission hold and not a true choke hold. The PH should really help with this battle of symantics.

"Oh, um, that?  That's not a choke hold.  That's a submission hold.  I know they look the same to a civilian (or anyone with sight), but they're totally not the same thing.  We'd never use a choke hold.  Nothing to see here, move along..."

Exactly.  The purpose of a choke hold is to choke someone.  The purpose of a submission hold is to choke someone until they submit to you.  TOTALLY different.... :P  :D

This is clearly a problem with police brutality.  Now that Al Sharpton got involved, it will be more of a race circus that masks the real problem.

 

And, sadly, this.

I don't think the major networks even report on anything Sharpton has to say these days.
