What The Media Isn’t Telling You About Eric Garner’s Death

The autopsy results have shown that there was no damage to his neck bones or windpipe from the hold and he did not die of asphyxia. The media has rightfully pointed out that chokeholds that strangle the windpipe and asphyxiate suspects are banned by the NYPD (but not by law). It appears the officer had Garner in a headlock and was using the headlock as leverage to take him down. Once Garner is on the ground the officer executes a vascular choke that prevents arteries in the neck from supplying the brain with blood. This is different from an air choke that targets the windpipe. You’ll note in the video that Garner is saying that he cannot breathe repeatedly, which should clue in the observant viewer that his windpipe is not being obstructed. Garner’s preexisting medical conditions combined with the chest, neck (but not throat) compression and laying in the prone position caused his death.

diabetes, sleep apnea, and asthma so severe that he had to quit his job as a horticulturist for the city’s parks department. He wheezed when he talked and could not walk a block without resting, they said.

The Gracie brothers put together a video a while back where they explain it:

 

The details will be paved over in favor of pushing a larger agenda.

    So basically obesity is what killed him (not literally of course, but in a manner of speaking).

    Welcome back, Herr, Eric! I’ve been looking on as Ferguson protests spread to Washington. They had U Street shut down tonight and were shouting “I can’t breathe, you can’t breathe.”

    The deaths themselves are mere excuses for a general release of pent up cultural and economic discontent. They would have found a reason.
    I’m not surprised there’s more to the story than the angry crowds are talking about.

    They push nonsensical events as police brutality while major for real police brutality is ignored. The reason is so that the Whites/middle class will support more police to keep down the mob. They don’t realize that when the music stops and the chairs are all taken away they’re the mob.

    I might add why are they throwing this guy on the ground and chocking him unconscious? I read he wasn’t selling cigarettes at the time they just felt like hassling him. In every encounter with the police do the citizens of this country need to be thrown on the ground? If so what exactly is the reason for this police procedure?
