Eric Garner 43 who had just help to broke-up a fight, was standing on the sidewalk when cops came. They thought he was involved in the fight even though witnesses said that he was the hero who broke it up. But the police still wanted to take him in. Mr. Garner he got loud and started shouting that he didn't do anything and to leave him alone and moving back. When are black men going to learn how to stop getting loud and upset with the police and just remain calm? Screaming and resisting arrest gets them nowhere.

I feel badly for his family and he shouldn't died that way. Those cops need to be laid off and investigated but I agree with you, that more black men need to learn how to conduct themselves around the police. I know getting loud from frustration is really many black men's way of trying to get their point across but to the white cops it looks like just another crazy black man getting aggressive with them and in turn they get hyped up and over-react. All this man had to do was keep a cool head talk to the police there or at the station and go the hell home. All that drama that cost him his life was not necessary.

Another troll: blaming the victim and ignoring the law.

Civilized societies have laws. Those laws cover police actions as well as civilian actions. The reason that that rogue cop no longer has a badge and gun is that he used "excessive force."
.
This, therefore, is not a Black male problem; it is a problem for those wanting to live in a civilized society; one that is governed by just and equitable laws. The real question is this: Why do so many police officers believe that by putting on a badge and carrying a gun gives them the right to murder and maim innocent civilians>

I think you're right! Black people period need to conduct themselves accordingly when dealing with the police. A lot of black people like to show their asses and put on a show for onlookers. As for breaking up fights, that's something I will NEVER do. Those involved will kill each other before I intervene!

Why is it, when anyone points out something wrong in that is happening, he or she is a troll? Is this a discussion forum or a site where we should come with fairly tales about how wonderful everything is?

I agree with you but I mentioned black men because many more black men get into deadly encounters with the police than black women do. Some black people do love an audience to perform in front of. Only fools step in to break up fights, I would have just like the cops handle it.

I think the cops were overcompensating because of the victim's size rather than his race. The victim was a BIG guy. That being said - no one deserves to be treated like that - what an absolute tragedy. 99% of police do a great job in my opinion. Police officers like the ones in this tragedy are nothing more than criminals - they need to go to jail where criminals belong. I have seen as any white people as blacks that do not behave appropriately in front of police officers - you have to remember that most often in these situations you are not seeing people at their best moment. Everyone gets nervous or upset from time to time - this is not an unusual situation for an officer to deal with. ANY officer should be able to deal with simple situations like this without using any force much less lethal force. Even in the absolute worst case scenario a little well placed electrical current will bring any confrontation to a complete halt - this is why God made the Taser X26. These officers went way past the line - they know better - they need to go to jail.

This isn't a back or white issue - this is a right or wrong issue - these idiots also make it more dangerous for the good officers that are out there doing it right every day.

The victim didn't sound like he was a bad person. It was good of him to break up a fight and I also feel sorry for his family/friend but I agree with the posts above. That he over-reacted and brought this on himself. Why assume the worse just because the cops want to take you in and question you? He was an idiot and also wanted to put on a street show for the bystanders.

As long as the Negro acts uncivilized when accosted by the police, he will continue to incur the wrath of the local police.

If you're caught doing wrong, why not just put your hands up and say,"hey man, you got me"?

Naw, the Negro male must PROVE that he's virile, and has the strength of 10 men!

Result, a good ass whupping, or even worse, death!

That problem was solved back in 1992, in Los Angeles, since then more blk cops are on the streets, and are running those police sub stations & policing blk neighborhoods, and have made it clear that they are not gonna tolarate that bs themselves plus the community demamded that. with less wht cops in the community, the police problem has gone away!

He must have thought the cops were going to just let him go and walk away because of the bystanders with cellphones in the area. He must have figured all he had to do was get loud, verbally combative, and uncooperative. That strategy obviously backfired on him in a big way. Of course it was excessive force but he gave them an excuse to escalate the situation. Like it was mention earlier, he should have simply gone with the police to answer a few questions and be back out on the street with his freedom in a few hours. When the police decide to arrest somebody, they don't change their mind. One way or another they're taking them down. Unfortunately, that man found out the hard way.

Did you watch the video or is this more of blind racist BS? Why not for once in your life speak or post with an unbiased view on matters?I believe 5 or 6 cops and one having to choke the suspect to death is way overboard.It shows lack of professionalism and traning.

I stand by what i said, more black cops in black neighborhoods, has created better police community relationships, the people trust the cops more, because they see people who look like them, who're honestly trying to assist the people in those areas..........no one trusts white cops, even black police officers, remember chris donner.

OK........maybe they should have used a TASER, then if he had died, everyone would have said that it was unnecessary!

Had they used a bean bag on him and he died, everyone would said "using unnecessary force", so what in the hell were they supposed do, stop bothering him period?

I'll tell you what, where-ever you're living, I'd like for you to go to your local Police department, sign a waiver, and ride with the police during one shift, and I'll guarantee you'll come away with a different attitude!

Personally, I'm fed up with criminals acting savage, and complying with what the law asks of them.

Don't want to do it, then you're at the mercy of the law!

Not only Chris Donner, but numerous Black cops. In many cities, however, Black cops are assigned to Black areas only, while whites may serve city wide. Not a few Black cops appoint themselves as God, and are more brutal than whites.(Similar thing happens to some women who join the force)
.
Which shows that it is the institution that is corrupt, and not those few individuals who have tried to show respect (or demand respect as Donner did).
