You could plainly see he increasing the pressure and rocking his knee backwards and forwards.
Several days after this murder, I'm still mad as a wet hen. I wish, oh how I wish, I could do something. The only thing I can think of to do is pull up this case on youtube.com and post my anger.
There have been riots across the U.S. with some commercial buildings burned to the ground and a few cop cars smashed to smithereens. I am pleased to see that BOTH blacks AND whites are taking part.
Make no mistake about it, cops are experts at causing severe pain in a "suspect". Thus, the "suspect" is bound to try to stop the pain, and then the cops get that "resistance" on film and have "proof positive" that the "suspect" was resisting arrest.
Historically, cops have claimed that, "I feared for my life and I had no choice but to shoot him". Yeah. Right. I recall a case where the nurses in a mental facility called the cops on a Native American who was screaming. The cops arrived and shot him dead and claimed they feared for their lives. . What "weapon" did that mental patient have ? A pencil.
What happened later? The cops were investigated and found not guilty. No charges were ever brought.
