Go back and re-read the article, and while you are at it, read the comment from OldshortfFatboy. Shoot to stop. Use only enough force to stop the threat.
Wow! What a startling development. Homicide - death of a person caused in any way by another person. Has absolutely nothing to do with whether the causation was a criminal act, or not.
Oh, that Sessions. Senator Sessions, not his pro-amnesty brother Representative Sessions.

While Gardner was involved in selling cigarettes at the time the NYPD officers approached him, it has been extensively reported that they were responding to calls from local "brick and mortar" merchants complaining about activities on the corner (including a fight).

Well, except for those pesky Conservatives, a few real reporters, the need to make decisions and those danged Israelis. And all those non-Democrats out in flyover country who are clinging to their firearms and Bibles.
Garner's criminal record included much more than selling cigarettes. His record included a previous resisting arrest (didn't learn much from that one, did he?) and assault. At best he was a persistent "scofflaw" since his first brush with the law in 1980. 31 arrests later, out on bail for 3 cases on that day, he failed to apply whatever he might have learned from all those arrests.
Precisely. If you are subjected to arrest, comply. If you didn't do what is alleged, you will have the opportunity to establish that later. If you resist, even if you didn't do what is originally alleged you will still be charged with resisting arrest.
As a matter of fact, law enforcement officers are instructed in exactly the same procedures if they are the subject of a traffic stop. These are simply smart procedures for anyone. Not everyone practices them, but they are not minority specific.
What alternate universe do you inhabit where "most people" DO NOT believe it should be true that if you resist a police officer in the performance of his duties you will suffer the consequences?
