How One NYPD Officer Went To Jail For Using A Chokehold — And Why That’s Unlikely To Happen In The Eric Garner Case

How One NYPD Officer Went To Jail For Using A Chokehold — And Why That’s Unlikely To Happen In The Eric Garner Case – http://huff.to/1x5fcZE

Two very different cases.

In the Garner case the issue was overkill on a minor offense and use of the banned chokehold.  But there were some grounds to use some force to arrest.

The Livoti case was different.  It was an assault and false arrest to begin with.  The officer wasn’t legally right to use any force.  The officers seem to have been hanging around to start a fight with no other apparent purpose.
