I believe it was his own drug overdose that put him in a coma.

Nothing good happens when you are full of drugs and fight the police while breaking the law

Was not the officers fault. I believe the hospital and the drugs caused the damage. The story of just calling him
Off the street, is missing some information. The wild man was trying to beat my door down. I called the law

Unless there is backward repercussions on the sleezy lawyers, nothing will change in this society and we are destined for destruction. If proven wrong, sleezy lawyers should be personally held responsible for damages in reverse and pay out of their pockets, then real justice and real facts could be served.

How many times in the last year did this person come to the ER with Overdose on Drugs before this happened ??

Answer that and you know what the issue is !

I agree the lawyers seem to be hunting for these types of cases . It's a sickening dilemma in our society . Nothe one if these attorneys defend our officers .

A person called the cops because the man had been beating on his door while hopped up on meth. I think the officers should use whatever force necessary to subdue an individual and protect themselves and innocent civilians from harm . Louise you are biased and focus on him being black . That's all you can see.

If you read the story, he was running and fighting the cops long after the choke hold. If it was the choke hold that crushed his trachea, then he wouldn’t have been able to do that

Are you saying you don't think the officer crushed his trachea, or that his trachea wasn't crushed at all?

I have a feeling this is not going to turn out well for Blytheville.

It's going to be hard to justify crushing a trachea. Was it a failed attempt of a carotid restraint, or is it the policy of the police to use choke holds that most places have banned?

Either way, very possibly will be a huge payoff which will encourage even more lawsuits in the future.

You dont know if his trachea was crushed and you dont know what most places have done. Do you jump to conclusions for fun or just the exercise.

These drug crazed hallucinating thugs are seriously dangerous people. You people would beg for an officer... For anyone to help you if one of these doped out freaks were trying to bust down your door to get to you. You can't hurt them. Just as when you have surgery, you are drugged you feel no pain. That's is what is going on. No one forced the drugs on this creep. He could have harmed a civilian or one of our officers and would have if he wasn't stopped.

If his trachea was crushed by the officer how did he get up and run afterwards?

Based on the behavior we saw on the videos I predict the lawyer is going to have a hard time ruling out all other causes. That's my prediction and we will have to wait and see how it plays out.
