Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 01, 2014

The New York Police Department is under investigation for a second restraint-related death, this one involving a drugged, emotionally disturbed man four days before a fatal videotaped chokehold that fueled community outcry and led the department to overhaul its use-of-force training. The medical examiner's office cited "physical restrain by police" as a factor in the July 13 death of Ronald Singleton, who went into cardiac arrest in an ambulance and died on the way to a hospital. It ruled his death a homicide.

Singleton's death drew little attention at the time. But Friday's homicide ruling thrust it into the category of police-related deaths under scrutiny after the July 17 chokehold death of Eric Garner in Staten Island.

It ruled his death a homicide.

I'm still skeptical that the office will be charged and punished to the fullest.

Likely a reduced charge with minimal time in jail at best.

Take note how the Gannett run CSM is now attempting to wrest back (like other media outlets) their once autonomous power and voice by muzzling the voice of the public and closing done all comments. The public apparently has no right to comment, critique or add to their articles.

Irrelevant, not to mention, the CSM does not have to provide a public forum. RCade doesn't either, but for some reason he still extends the courtesy to us.

It seems like you are here simply to change the topic to something other than police brutality.
