    Texas Penal Code
    § 38.02. FAILURE TO IDENTIFY. (a) A person commits an
    offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence
    address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully
    arrested the person and requested the information.

    He offered to give them his information. This was clearly an unlawful arrest. They also don’t have the right to erase your videos.

    Eric Garner was alive when the EMS crew got there.

    Second video, shown to the grand jury, but withheld by the media:

    Manslaughter? No. One has to be engaged in an unlawful act for manslaughter to a charge. This was an accidental killing.

    Here’s a video that showed what happened AFTER the first video ended:

    He was still alive when the EMS showed up! That tells me something other than the chokehold killed him. Maybe only using one set of handcuffs? He was a very big man! When you use the arms to stretch the chest muscles and the diaphragm, much like in Crucifixion, you can’t breathe.

    I wonder if that was taken into account, because he was obviously alive when the EMS showed up!

    “The final autopsy report in Garner’s death showed that Garner did not have any drugs or alcohol in his system and had no head trauma. The New York Times reported that the autopsy suggested his obesity and health problems caused his fatal heart attack.”

    No, he shouldn’t have. The alleged choke hold only lasted a few seconds. He switched to a different hold (seat belt hold or something). The guy died of a heart attack while resisting arrest! The bottom line, don’t resist arrest when you are a biscuit away from a heart attack!

    He didn’t choke him to death. The guy died from a heart attack while resisting arrest. Bottom line: don’t resist arrest, especially when you are a biscuit away from a heart attack!

    The ALLEGED choke hold only lasted a few seconds. He wasn’t choked out. Banned by NYPD doesn’t mean it was unlawful.

    He wasn’t choked to death for selling cigarettes. He died of a heart attack while resisting arrest! Tragic, but it doesn’t even meet the criteria for involuntary manslaughter, since the cop wasn’t acting unlawfully.

    And remember, he died of a heart attack. He was not choked out.

  • December 3, 2014 at 4:43pm

    He died of a heart attack while resisting arrest. This was at best an accidental killing.

    He died of a heart attack. He wasn’t choked to death.

    Accidental killing: a death caused by a lawful act done under the reasonable belief that no harm was likely to result. Bloody shame, but I kind of think the grand jury got this one right. The cop didn’t meant to kill him, the guy just happened to die while resisting arrest.
    Bottom line, if a cop tells you that you are under arrest, don’t resist.

    Not Involuntary Manslaughter, as the police officer was not involved in an unlawful act. This was an accidental killing: a death caused by a lawful act done under the reasonable belief that no harm was likely to result. Bottom line, if a cop tells you that you are under arrest, don’t resist.

  • [3] December 1, 2014 at 1:07pm

    This one doesn’t.

    Eh, we’ll see who’s right on the other side of that last breath.

    Mock away. I may not be a Greek scholar, but I have studied the writings of Greek scholars. And in my experience, people mock when they don’t have anything intelligent to say. Kind of like liberals!

    But ultimately, we won’t know the truth until the other side of that last breath. And I fully expect all of my Roman Catholic brothers and sisters in Christ, who believe that Christ died for our sins, there.

    The Greek word Adelphoi does not mean “kin.” It means “from the womb”. Jesus had brothers. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter. We’ll see on the other side of that last breath.

    Actually, Gabriel didn’t say “full of grace.” He said “Highly favored.”
    Gratia plena, full of grace, or highly favored, is a translation, rather than a transliteration of the original Greek. That is, gratia plena or full of grace in Greek would be pleres charitos (πλήρης χάριτος), whereas St. Luke chooses to use kecharitomene (κεχαριτωμένη).

  • [3] November 19, 2014 at 12:58pm

    That is Catholic doctrine. It is NOT biblical. Nowhere in the bible does it say that Mary was born without sin, nor does it say she was an eternal virgin. The gospel of Matthew even said Jesus had siblings.
