It might suggest the extent to which the jurors voted on the merits and the extent that they voted based on their own skin color.

Is it not the job of a police officer to arrest those who break the law?

What crime did the police officer commit that would warrant such a penalty?

Here's a couple more questions for everyone to avoid:

Was it really a choke hold?

There were 4 people participating in subduing the man....although, it was the unnecessary chokehold which killed him.

Are you sure it wasn't pressure on his abdomen that caused his death?

Whatever it was, I'm sure the medical examiner could figure it out when he ruled it as asphyxia ....for peddling cigarettes...

giujohn-

You may be right.

I read several times that it requires a vote of 12 jurors who have heard all the evidence to indict. I guess it means that there are 12 persons on the jury and so unanimity is needed to indict. (I was on a federal grand jury with 23 persons with 16 needed to indict.)

The policeman's lawyer said that the grand jury was roughly half white, with the other half evenly divided among blacks and Hispanics.

You were talking about the make up of the grand jury were you not?

Unless you were a member of that grand jury, your statement of your own skin color is is more a source of confusion than disappointment. What in the world does your skin color have to do with the make up of the grand jury?

Confused

@coldjoint,
Hey fuckface, do your own googling, I do my own. You are painfully stupid. Your little girlfriend admitted the one I mentioned about Big Bang Theory was real. Go ahead moron, prove me wrong, google your girlfriend's name, see if there aren't at least eight other teenage websites. Your girlfriend uses the same same screen name allover the internet. How dumb was that? And to cap it off - on sucko lame emo wuss sites!

Excessive force... Killing someone. He had two other cases against him for false arrest. One settled by he city... Talking about Pantaleo ( the one that KILLED the man)

I've seen conflicting claims on whether this guy was resisting arrest.

If he was NOT resisting arrest, then I can see the case for excessive force.

However, if he WAS resisting arrest, tackling him and manhandling him into handcuffs would not seem to be excessive.

I don't know enough about the case to know whether or not he was resisting arrest.

Accidental deaths are only crimes if there is some sort of criminal negligence or something similar. Is there any case for such in this death?

The problem is excessive force... Given the officer's history...he had no problem with this. He still has a pending case against him and a history of the the city having to settle one for him. There were FOUR subduing a man for peddling cigarrettes...one KILLED him for it.

I'm not entirely sure that is the case. If it turns out that the primary cause of death was pressure on his abdomen, it may not be the case that Pantaleo was the source of the pressure on his abdomen.

That depends on whether he was resisting arrest (something I've seen conflicting claims on).

IF he was resisting arrest, tackling him and manhandling him into handcuffs would not seem excessive.

If he was not resisting though, I can see how it would be excessive.

That makes it sound as if this was an intentional killing. It was clearly an accidental death.
