“They were on top of him with all their weight on the hot asphalt,” he added. “Who wouldn’t be fighting? He was fighting for his life, and he lost.”
This quote is a huge part of our problem with police use of force. Their violence against the person they are telling to “stop resisting” is often what causes the person to “resist” which leads to more force from the officers which leads to more dead bodies. When you are kicking and punching and suffocating them to death (or in this case cooking them alive on tarmac) what do you expect a person to do? When your being killed it’s pure instinct to fight back.
