Grand Jury Made A Terrible Decision In The Garner Case

So all of the hoopla about the Garner case is can be found in the NY Penal Code

§ 125.15 Manslaughter in the second degree.
A person is guilty of manslaughter in the second degree when:
1. He recklessly causes the death of another person; or
2. He commits upon a female an abortional act which causes her death,
unless such abortional act is justifiable pursuant to subdivision three
of section 125.05; or
3. He intentionally causes or aids another person to commit suicide.

Based on my reading of the case, this case is clearly a violation of PC 125.15(1) of manslaughter of second degree.  Nothing less and nothing more.  This is not murder or manslaughter in the first degree.  .

They nailed the guy on who killed Oscar Grant on the same charge and he did a year in Los Angeles County jail.  The same charge can be applied to Darren Brown and this guy.

The New York penal code is clear: Indict this guy for manslaughter of second degree.  Jack McCoy of Law and Order would do the same thing.  McCoy would not be afraid try the case.

We did in LA in the Oscar Grant case.  Yes, the guy who killed Oscar Grant did not get much jail as he should.  But he did  a year in jail time.
