Man Dies

The death of this man could have been avoided had there been less use of force. He was not aggressive and during the entire conversation all he was asking was that they leave him alone. Even if they had to arrest him there was not reason to take him down and pin him to the ground. He kept saying I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe, but no one listened. Now a family is in mourning and six children are without a father.  The police in their effort  to uphold the law must be careful not to become overzealous and end up doing more harm than good.
