Eric Garner death

Now that we have guilty verdicts on Chauvin....the Garner death in NY was just like this one, victim couldn't breathe & cops wouldn't "let up...get up" ...can charges be brought against those cops??

Oh & Garners crime.....selling cigarettes
At this point, probably only civil charges, if that hasn’t already been attempted. Ironic that it took live witnesses, film coverage and worldwide protests to get legal justice, and some racists out there [b]still[/b] don’t get it.

Smart phones are changing a lot of things. The witnesses alone would have been dismissed.[@328496,bijouxbroussard]

Perhaps prosecutors will feel more inclined to go to trial now they have seen that a jury can be persuaded. The video in the Floyd case and the desertion of the Police Dept of its own officer were pretty strong pieces of evidence, though.
Hopefully it sets some precedent and adds some momentum.

Maybe The US will actually put more effort into training police like most developed nations do.
