Well Daegog, nice straw man argument there. Way to distort my statement. But actually, no, I said if he had been guilty of non-violent crime, using or selling drugs, I STILL would have felt bad for the guy. But robbery is a crime that ACTIVELY threatens violence and very often results in deaths to innocent people. Moreover, I am not a court system, I don't have to have evidence beyond reasonable doubt that he was guilty to lose my sympathy for him. The fact that he HAD JUST LEFT JAIL THAT DAY means he was more than willing to commit a crime. Then the fact that an innocent couple reported him, and the fact that he ran when he saw the cops are all good enough for me that he probably did it. Also, I did not say I am glad he is dead. Obviously the cops should have handled it better. But, this is not a circumstance where the cops should take all the criticism. If you don`t want to get hurt while getting arrested, maybe you shouldn`t rob people or flee from cops (another crime).

@DingDingDong This was in the story in the credit link:
Spitz (a forensic pathologist) said that sickle cell crisis occurred, caused by an officer applying pressure to Williams' back - and perhaps his neck - while he was facedown on the ground.
Sickle cell crisis is caused by oxygen deprivation and the oxygen deprivation that led to Williams` death occurred when Ticcioni held Williams facedown on the ground and forced his knee into Williams` back.
A cracked hyoid bone in Williams` neck - revealed during the autopsy - is an indication that one of the officers may have put him in a chokehold.
It takes tremendous pressure to break the hyoid bone. The injury occurs in only one-third of homicides by strangulation, according to the Journal of Forensic Sciences.
