This was a tragedy. Period. Nothing more and nothing less. The victim didn't die because he was black, and the officer didn't have malice towards the victim. It's a sad tragedy. Lot's of "if"s and "but"s on all sides here.
Yes...also people confuse a Choke hold...meant to cut off air with the BJJ move "Chokehold" meant to cut off blood flow to the brain and pass you out

But what this was instead was an attempt to bring him down

But what i want to know is why the officers who were oh his back were not also charged?

Also why didn't the supervisor present stop it when she heard him saying he can't breath??
Let it be understood that Apostolic Friends Forum is an Apostolic Forum.
Apostolic is defined on AFF as:

  1. There is One God. This one God reveals Himself distinctly as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
  2. The Son is God himself in a human form or "God manifested in the flesh" (1Tim 3:16)
  3. Every sinner must repent of their sins.
  4. That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.
  5. That the Holy Ghost is for today and is received by faith with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.
  6. The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.
