New Yorkers: Officer who choked Garner should be indicted

Report here.  And I agree.  Watching the video, clearly Garner was not threatening the officers.  He did not have a knife in his hand, or otherwise acting in an aggressive manner.  The officer was using an illegal maneuver because….Garner was arguing with them.  Garner’s “crime” was selling cigarettes to support himself and his family. I can find no fault in that.  And the worst part is that he did not have cigarettes on him at the time of this incident.  WTH?
