12 seconds. The cop has arm around the guy's neck for 12 seconds. And he only holds on for maybe 5 seconds after the guy is on the ground. No one was choked to death. The guy said he couldn't breathe because he was so fat and out of shape that he couldn't do it while lying on his stomach with his hands behind his back. Positional asphyxia is a real thing -- look it up. Even then, they rolled him over after about a minute.
I suppose I could rant about the malfeasance of the media in failing to accurately present the incident, but, really, you should be smarter than that. Even after all this time it still amazes me that otherwise intelligent people can swallow these narratives hook, line, and sinker -- when they have access to the video. I guess it helps when it reinforces your ideology, eh?
