Yes, his forearm was on one side of Garner's neck, against the throat, constricting the airway as he pulled his forearm against Garner's throat as he pulled backwards. That was a choke hold, by definition.

When a forearm is applied to the throat of one person by another from behind, and the force exerted is to tightly pull that forearm inward against the throat, you have a "choke-hold". It is clearly evident in the video that Officer Pantaleo has his forearm against Garner's throat as he is pulling him back and then as he is holding on as Garner sways and falls. That was most certainly a "choke-hold". That was the first problem and contributor to Garner's death. Following this, they kept him on his stomach, with officers sitting on him, adding their weight to the compressive force. Now, Garner was a big fellow. Not just tall, but also rotund. Laying such a person on their stomach does make it more difficult for them to breath. When you add the weight of a couple/few Cops (some not so svelte themselves), you have a problem similar to that experienced by a beached whale. The person just cannot breath with that amount of compressive force. The chest muscles and diaphragm just cannot lift that much weight. And, unless the force is removed, the person will die within minutes. All around, this was a cluster-f* of grand proportions. Had these Cops acted with less aggression, this man could have been taken into custody without loss of his life. His death is on the Cops, their policies and process.
I agree with everything you said, except that bit about MLK. Sure, he was not a perfect man, and he did have some "warts". But, I ask you... show me a perfect man who has ever walked this Earth (other than Jesus). He was the right man at the right time, and though he might have been a "racist", it was that type of "racism" that leads one to try to better the condition of one's own race. But, certainly not the same form of "racism" which leads one to believe one's race superior to that of another race. Martin taught non-violence, respect for others and a self help work ethic. Things his people need to remember and build upon. Not tear down and uproot as is done by today's Black leaders (Sharpton, Jackson, Holder, et. al.).

The sob stories really do pull at the heartstrings, don't they. Listen, there would be no sob stories to listen to were no one acting criminally. Do you worry as much about the kids of the local town burglar, when his criminal father is separated from them? These folks break the law entering our country illegally, break the law when taking a job, break the law by not paying taxes, break the law when getting Driver Licenses, break the law by having no insurance, etc., etc., etc.. Thus, as do all criminals, they live in fear of those situations and places where they might be caught.
Abbas says this is a result of Israel is at fault for these killings due to the issues with the Al Aqsa Mosque. Bibi says they will bulldoze the homes of the two Palestinian attackers. I have a better idea. How about Israel bulldoze the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock?

In the original, that word which King James' scholars translated as "witch" was more properly translated as "poisoner".

I might tend to say that Christianity devolved under the Roman Emperors after Constantine, and that in the last 200 years it has returned to its original teachings.

Considering that Ransom has only posted repeat articles on Sunday's for quite some time, I, for one, expect that when I open his Sunday column, that I will find a rehash of an older article. But, I can see your point in reference to those who are unfamiliar with Ransom's Sunday articles. Then again, for those folks it would be like a new article, as they would not have had experience with John's Sunday retreads.
