  1. A grotesquely fat diabetic smoker with apnea and heart disease got himself killed over loosies, and now black America has a new hero.

  2. Millon Mare says:

    You can't just "snuff" someone out on film and say it wasn't murder, no matter what his health condition was. This is about the killing of many black men/women by police violence not only about him. All people have had enough of this.

  3. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson says:

    a myopic white guy who doesn't want to even consider the possibility that this incident is NOT just about one man being unjustly killed by the police, and now white America has a "go-to" explanation for deflecting racism. See, THAT was easy

  4. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson My eyes are just fine. How do you know what I've considered? This IS just one case, and you can only make the cops "guilty" if you simply call it one in a long series of injustices against blacks, completely ignoring the particular facts, facts you don't seem to care about.

  5. Millon Mare The cops had a duty to arrest him. Garner committed suicide by fat.

  6. Linda Taylor says:

    Charlie, that was stupid.

  7. Calvin L. Williams says:

    @ Charlie Willock, whom seems to be a narcissistic drunkard that thinks he's so superior yet sounds like a mentally challenged hobo, a BUBBA, probably is a WAG with Nazi Swastika tattooed on his artificial BOOBS, in any case his statement reflects why intelligent people have overlooked his insignificant buttocks, needless to say he is a FOOL, without RULES that sits on a STOOL. Please for the sake of Mankind, Lil Boy go to your broom … Fella is a Mental Patient !!! Drop Dead !!!

  8. Millon Mare says:

    Charlie Willock – NO, clearly if you have any background you would know he was indeed NOT selling cigs illegally that particular day. He had just helped break up an argument between two other ppl and was walking down the street not bothering anyone. He has been known to sell lose cigs in the past, but SO WHAT? That does not give the police a right to kill a man.??? Do you really agree with that? Do you know Eric Garner also fed the homeless? Do you realize he had children and a wife? Do you realize he said he could not breathe 11 times? Regarding the " this was just ONE case. You need to do some research on police brutality on black men that has gone on for years. You can't tell me Eric Garner would have been dead that day had the police not terrorized him on the street. What exactly do you think the "facts" The fact that we saw a modern day lynching in the streets of Staten island is FACT.

  9. Calvin L. Williams says:

    Millon Mare I saw his photo and you can tell he is in need of a serious Psyche Evaluation, not only is he stupid looking and obviously a disgruntled fool, he does show signs that perhaps he may be have been sexually molested as a child by a Grizzly Bear, he looks under nourished, tired and a failure for sure in a real world that he doesn't have the faintest idea exists …

  10. Millon Mare says:

    Calvin L. Williams its scary that people like this are allowed to roam the earth.

  11. Calvin L. Williams says:

    Millon Mare yes INDEED I agree and concur fully Milon, FULLY !!!

  12. take your racist trolling ass to a white sight ………..please!!!!!!!

  13. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson says:

    Charlie Willock I don't know what you HAVE considered, but you make it pretty obvious what you HAVE NOT considered: that man's humanity. Your callous, "in-a-nutshell" dismissal of reasons why black America [and a good portion of white America, too, as well as other ethnicities] is FED UP with and ALARMED by the frequency of this happening to Black and minority people shows that you don't have a clue. Snappy, dismissive one-liners isn't going to make anyone see this situation differently. If you want to call out "particular facts", don't cherry-pick the ones that lend themselves to your arguments alone, okay? It's also a FACT [in addition to the health problems you noted] that selling loose cigarettes is not a crime punishable by death. The cops went too far, and it has to stop

  14. Calvin L. Williams says:

    Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson I simply adore your eloquent articulation of why this reprobate minded retard does not even fathom the disruptive commentary of such a sadistic and murderous situation wherein a man lost his life for a trivial denial of his humanity and human right to be where he's suppose to be without fear, or threat or even probable cause …

  15. It won't be funny when the police strangle YOU. Then you will call it a slippery slope.

  16. I'm a challenged black man. Busy trying to educate and elevate young black men and women. Sorry don't have time for " ignorant "white men with emphasis on ignorant

  17. Charlie Willock I wonder if this false rhetoric of yours would even fly out of your mouth if instead of Eric Garner, it was a white male individual approached by five black cops and the exact same result had happened to him? I wonder how many of the true facts would come out of your mouth, such as

    (1) There was no illegal sale of cigarettes being performed, the police simply acted on heresay, something which, in court, is inadmissible,
    (2) With no probable cause, the police officers had absolutely no business in detaining him or attempting to arrest him, and
    (3) The fact that he told the police that he could not breathe eleven times while he was hardly moving would by all common sense compel the police officers in question, especially the one in charge as a matter of health, to re-position themselves so that another human being could breathe.

    But Eric Garner wasn't white, and that's the ONLY fact that you are looking at or concerned about.

  18. Lmboooo, damn! Calvin L. Williams

  19. Calvin L. Williams says:

    THE NEW AGE SLAVERY:
    >> SEE THE POLICE jobs are to protect & serve, however no one has even took the time to qualify this dynamic of Law Enforcement since no one really knows excatly what laws the police be enforcing.
    >> I would venture to say by expounding on this in this regard: PROTECT WHITE FOLKS and SERVE RICH FOLKS, or rather simply stated be protective servants of their European Masters and property.
    >> This in term would engender me to expostulate another theorem on who's and whom property we talking bout, see if you don't think white people see you as just Chattel Property (belonging to them) then you would be woefully mistaken, all of the Confederate States (defeated as a result of this during the Civil War) have never felt they had to relinquish their right to this unjust entitlement thus the advent of contemporary RACISM.These grisly murders, mayhem, injustice and hatred can be traced back to this one thing: The 13th Amendment to the CONSTITUTION. Know what you're talking about and know WHY. I rest my case…

  20. Calvin L. Williams You'd look tired too, after getting molested by a grizzly. I'm sorry i disrupted your echo chamber.

  21. Marleta Robinson says:

    Charlie Willock , are you kidding me!? Excessive use of restraint. The police officers went to far! Period!!!! I understand they had a job to do, but was it really worth all that for one man who was selling loose cigarettes? NO, it wasn't! That man live mattered and for those officers, they assumed it was justified to flex their authority because of that badge. Unacceptable.

  22. Marleta Robinson Fatty should have thought about that before he fought with police. If you resist arrest, the cops will take you down. They'll take you down to Funky Town.

  23. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson says:

    Charlie Willock like I said before: you have NO regard for a person's humanity. You mostly find that trait of no empathy in people who have no humanity themselves. Or in racists, who can only feel for "their own". Or in TROLLS who talk a gang of sh*t just to get reactions. Wow, looks like I'm 3 for 3 in describing you. What a creep

  24. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson You have no empathy for cops doing their duty. Look at the creep in the mirror.

  25. Calvin L. Williams says:

    Charlie Willock get you a life and I don't debate with morons and the mentally ill, indeed this is indicative that the only echo is the one you heard in your own delirium and anxiety. Please do not even attempt to communicate any further. Case closed.

  26. Calvin L. Williams Oh, ok.

  27. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson says:

    Charlie Willock killing first and asking questions later [along with smear campaigns to find the dead person GUILTY OF THEIR OWN DEATH] is not the cops' 'DUTY', and no, I have no empathy for that. EVERY THINKING PERSON IN AMERICA saw a man killed on video, when it wasn't necessary. Indeed, he wasn't even SELLING cigarettes–the cops were going on hearsay, and he had no cigs on him for sale. None of that matters to you, I'm sure. There's no creep in MY mirror–check your own

  29. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson I bow to the righteousness of your black ass.

  30. Jacolby Muhammad says:

    Charlie White people pattern has never changed they have a history written in Blood maybe you All should go back to the caves in Europe and concentrate on staying alive..

  31. Jacolby Muhammad says:

    I don't waste time arguing With A people that justice is not apart of their nature..they are incapable of rendering justice..

  32. Charlie Willock what about the white police officer that beat a white woman who was a bartender almost half to death ,its about right and wrong,,punishment should fit the crime sir,if i get a parking ticket i dont plan to be shot or killed by the police,its very sad and we need peace for everyone,the police dont use this much excessive force when a gunman walks into a movie theatre and kills folks ,,,geeshhh police have to use proper protocal when dealing with the public sir,his heath is not point,you donot kill a citizen for selling looses…nothin funny about murder/if u r blk or white,,,its not a joke

  33. Maybe if they slip on a banana peel while strangling me.

  34. Maybe you should go back to swinging from tree limbs in Africa. Let me make this easier for you to understand: Ook ook!

  35. Lorna Jackson The cop who beat the bartender was a different case.

  36. Keelan Jones says:

    Craziness. No need responding to someone who hides behind a profile picture. Gabriel is saying something powerful and true.

  37. Perhaps a rampage of street justice white on kids and women and cops is in order. Let them see what pain is! The white man is poison! Simple as that! Always has been , always will be. Fuck that turn the other cheek shit. You hit me, I BRICK you!

  38. Why are you guy arguing with this Devil on this post? Charlie Willock just proves what we teach about the Devil is true. There is no good in them. Cave dwelling, Raw animal eating, rapist child molester ass skunks! Who had to trick and murder the aboriginals everywhere so they can pillage the whole world and butt fuck each other in the name of that White fake Jesus. Fag people but got the nerve to say something about us. When you got the whole world sick behind you.

  39. Ursula Johnson says:

    Why are you all entertaining him?

  40. Merl Seeker says:

    Awesome interview, very will said.

  41. it's only racism if you make it!!!!!!! I could walk into a chines restaurant and eat their food and get sick and die. if my loved ones came on and said the Chinese killed him because they where being racist then guess what we just maid it about racis.

  42. actually that day he had just broken up a fight, had nothing to do with "loosies"…….

  43. Linda Taylor Say it and it's so.

  44. Tyrail Rel Carter So what if he had just broken up a fight? Does that mean that anything that ever happens after that happened because he broke up a fight? Am I supposed to believe that just because you and the felon who recorded the video say it?

  45. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson says:

    Charlie Willock , you cannot insult me–I am not invested enough in your opinions, and you are not smart enough. I see your first line of offense is to try and insult what you can't refute with logic. Your comments aren't funny or cute–they reveal someone who's satisfied with and easily entertained by their own stupidity

  46. Chaveevah Cheryl Banks Ferguson pmoiipniqgppofpo24[02309[jwfopimwfmosoms

  47. So you won't believe what was stated but do you believe ahuman being died after being strangled to death and repeatedly say i can't breathe.. forget whatever else happened a person is saying i cnt breathe and is obviously no threat to you, if you don't let go you are a murderer plain and simple..I understand yoou're a racist so it will be hard for you grasp the concept of compassion for negros.. hell, some guy killed a police dog that was attacking him and got 17 years so, any point you come back with has no substance it's clear the justice system really means "just us".

  49. Tyrail Rel Carter They DID let go, but Fatty died anyway. 🙁

  50. Is there really any need for name calling? but yeah they let go when he was already DEAD.

  51. Tyrail Rel Carter I only call him Fatty to remind people why he died: From being a grossly overweight diabetic smoker with heart disease and apnea who chose to fight against cops. His own black life didn't matter much to himself.

  52. Darren Clanagan says:

    Everyone please stop wasting your time and intelligence on this idiot Charlie Willock. He is not worth the dirt we walk on.

  53. Darius Thomas says:

    You are an idiot and don't even know how much of an idiot you are. Doesnt matter about his healthy or how he took care of himself. He should not have been tackled and choked the way that he was to be arrested.
    Im sure you are some weak ass individual hiding behind the computer screen displaying your ignorance for the Internet to see, but try to at least have a valid argument to back up your argument LOSER!

  54. Derek Reid says:

    You do know that Chinese is not a race, right?

  55. yes I'm talking about the restaurant. maybe i should have just said Asian.

  56. Derek Reid says:

    Charlie Willock He was ALIVE before the police got their hands on him. ALIVE then, DEAD now. What happened in between??? The POLICE happened… He did not deserve to die for what he was doing.

  57. Derek Reid says:

  58. YOU'RE HILARIOUS AND SICKENING AT THE SAME TIME. #NOTIMETOWASTEONYOU

  59. WE AS BLACK PEOPLE HAVE TO FACE ONE HARD CORE FACT…AND THAT IS RACISM WILL NEVER CHANGE FOR US…'' NEVER! '' WE HAVE TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN HOW TO BE BLACK. MEANING DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE PUT IN A SITUATION THAT MAY COST YOU YOUR LIFE….THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN IS SOMETHING THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO US AS A GIFT…SHOWING US THAT WE ARE THE CHOOSEN ONES…IT IS NOT HATRED THAT THEY FEEL WHEN THEY LOOK AT US…'' IT IS ENVY ''. TO WALK IN THIS WORLD KNOWING THAT I WAS PUT HERE IN LIKENESS OF THE ALMIGHT IS A CROWN I SHALL WEAR WITH PRIDE. MY PEOPLE THE CHOOSEN ONES. WE DO NOT NEED TO CONTINUE TO WALK THESE SAME ROADS AS THOSE BEFORE US HAD. AND STILL 300 PLUS YEARS AGO JUST TO SEE THAT THE NEXT 300 WILL BE THE SAME. AS FOR ME I WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO DO TO ME AS THEY WISH , I WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE LIFE AS IF THEY WERE NOT HERE. AND SHOW THEM THAT IT IS NOT THEM THAT IS IN CHARGE….'' BUT GOD.''.

    The "Ho-lice" job is to serve and protect this system against its white supremacist dissidents and the criminals it reproduces. Unfortunately the term dissodent could easy be applied to any of its indigenous residents, because the system, itself, proves daily that it is only an advancement for white genetic survival and expansion. A nigger making factory, where the overseers can do as they please

    Stop….learn what a race ia then come back and try to argue this.

  63. Liliane Cortes says:

    I can't understand how a man can use a banned hold and not be held accountable!!!! This needs to go to a higher court. Unbelievable , it makes me sick and saddens my heart….
