In NY, The gun owner would be arrested, prosecuted & convicted. Doesn’t matter if you have a ccw, If you pull your gun, You have to defend yourself in court. Criminals have more rights than victims in NY..
True! I'm convinced he was TRYING to say that, maybe he couldn't catch his breath. That could be the result of positional asphyxia...or an asthma attack caused by stress...or high blood pressure/cardiac problems... or the cops holding him down. BUT it could NOT have been, the "chokehold" which had ended seconds earlier. That cop--as I recall--was standing AWAY from Garner at that point.
You can actually. I've done it or close to it anyway. You don't wanna go down that road

That punch looked more like a back hand to me.
My brother & I shared plenty of back hands as teenagers growing up &
we never hit the ground. Looks like moe-hammed is trying to capitalize on
the victim card.
At best he will have permanent brain damage but will most probably die from his fake injuries. Did you miss the blood flowing from his head and the puddle? I do not believe the man who hit him intended to hurt him that badly but actions have consequences don't they?
It didn't look that bad, I agree, but the results are devastating. Ol' Mo had a glass jaw, a paper skull, and tender brain. Its unfortunate he expressed his concerns to a man with thin skin and very bad judgement. Sort of a "perfect storm" situation. Mo is in the graveyard, a-hole in the pen.
It was a backhand but apparently a perfect strike. Perhaps the perp struck the carotid artery causing the victim to pass out and collapse. And it is NOT faked. Look at Mohammed's feet. After he's on the ground and out his knees are locked and his feet are held a few inches in the air, perfectly together. That's an involuntary reaction of the muscles. As well Mohammed is shown in the still photo holding his arms bent at the elbow, hands in the air...another involuntary reaction.
Perhaps Mohammed should have chilled, but he did nothing to deserve this. And frankly the perp should be charged with nothing more than simple battery as the hit was not all that devastating and clearly never intended to harm Mohammed, although I have never seen a backhand have that effect.

“Whoever is frightened by a guy walking in the freezing cold and keeping his hands warm should be put in prison for a deadly assault on common sense.”
What if the person that called police was a friend of walking man & the call was a set up to provoke police to do something & record it.
TJ… exactly. This is why the police should not be responding to every single little bait thrown their way. Drive by once or twice and see that he’s on his way like a normal person and leave it alone. Don’t get yourself into position of becoming a YouTube sensation in a negative light by looking like a cop that harasses people because he has a God complex.
Thanks Thomas_Jefferson. I needed a good laugh today.
You need to stop struggling to find reasonable cause for the altercation. If you have to dig into the "paranoid conspiracies" section of your imagination to contrive a plausible narrative - safe to say you've gone too far.

He also said not to provoke the police, The chick in the video was trying to provoke some kind of altercation with police.

If “Black Lives Matter” so much to black people, Then why is it that 90% of black homicide is done by black people?
