    Stories like this make me sad, there are way too many losers in this country that don't understand how to act correctly in certain situations.

    A man's life was lost over a few overzealous idiots.

    Weird situation.

    The guy put himself in that circumstance. He wouldn't have been choked had he cooperated.

    I would still let the choke artist sit in a prison for at least 5 years.

    blood chokes are dangerous especially performed by those who doesnt do it properly and tightens the treachea or hold on to it for far too long

    I wish cops would stop attempting submission holds just because they see it on TV

    Sympathies to the family.

    If the cops told him he was under arrest and he resisted, ending up dying from it, kinda hard to blame the cops.

    If green shirt put him in a choke hold to begin with, he pulled the trigger too early.

    Fatty shoulda lost weight if he has asthma, though. And he shouldn't be breaking the law. Just because you have a health condition doesn't make you immune from cops forcefully placing you under arrest.

    That choke is done so wrong. I didn't know cops were even taught to do choke holds. Couldn't they have just tased him if he was resisting?

    Truly tragic that the man died.

    Could it have been prevented had he been more cooperative?

    Somewhere in there the phrase "To serve and protect" was lost.

    hey, for those of you defending the cops, please stop. Cops are not your friend:

    The true question is, was that chokehold necessary?

    Well funny that you say that because the choke hold was banned from use for NYPD officers in 1993. Cops are above the law I guess.

    I am guessing being 400 pounds contributed to his death, but that cop needs to go to jail.
