Uhmm the coroner couldn't tell the difference between stroke and choking in the autopsy? Doesn't make sense. How many million yen were spent ultimately vindicating this poor nurse from a 200000 yen fine?

To the comment that he was a criminal- this is exactly the problem with this scenario and why this is an important issue.

Is it right for you to brand him a criminal without the presumption of innocence guaranteed by the Constitution? No. Would you assume guilt for a white man?

Is it right for the police officer to consequently based on the above to play judge, jury, and executioner? No. Would this happen for a white man?

Is it right for a suspect to be pinned down by the neck especially after being subdued by police to a non threatening state? No. Would this happen for a white man?

The BLM movement unfortunately rallies behind people with interactions with police who are then deemed to be criminals on the basis that "good people don't get arrested." However, people of color deserve the presumption of innocence that white people tend to take for granted or presume away based on this flawed assumption.

Waste of time and money to litigate a non enforceable guideline. It's about as pointless as suing the FDA because you want to eat less than the recommended vegetables per day.
