USA: "I can't breathe" becomes rallying cry of revolt against the police for the death of Eric Gardner

RIP Eric Gardner.

The victim will have been caught selling illegal cigarettes and a police team tried to stop him. Faced with the resistance of powerful Eric to be handcuffed, the authority agents have resorted to joint force to take him down and one of them â€" presumably, Daniel Pantaleo â€" will have grabbed the suspect by the throat in an attempt to subdue him.

Asthmatic, the victim quickly began to reveal a hard time breathing. "I can't breathe" ("I can't breathe", in Portuguese), will have been the last words uttered repeatedly by Eric Gardner, the 17 July, after aggressive crackdown. The autopsy would later reveal that the victim succumbed due to "compression of the neck and chest against the ground."

The fatal confrontation was filmed by witnesses, but even with the images and audio from the grand jury record of New York understand there is "probable cause" to charge the agent of authority of any responsibility in the death of Eric Gardner.
