  • He may have resisted arrest because he was wanted for a July 31 Bronx robbery, police told the Daily News reported.

I hate thieves first of all! He deserves a beating! He's lucky not to be shot. Black men run a risk for just walking down the road while being black. My opinion is he should have avoided this particular situation by not being a criminal.

If he was elsewhere in the world he would have been beaten by a mob for stealing.

You the cops version of what took place, but do you know that you have the right to defend yourself against a cop that wants to violate your rights for no good reason, even though it's not recommended.
