Eric Garner May Have Survived If He Had Proper Medical Care According To Famous Pathologist: Dr. Cyril Wecht
Some expert insight on the recent tragic death Eric Garner—the Staten Island man who died Thursday after an officer put him in an illegal chokehold may have survived if he was giving proper medical attention, said famed pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht in a statement to the Daily News. Wecht, who has had multiple experiences consulting several “high-profile cases”, said Eric Garner, should have been immediately placed upright. “You want to position him in such a way to facilitate breathing,” He went on to state that Garner’s death was probably due to the dangerous combination of a chokehold and being pinned down. According to the Daily News, an autopsy showed no signs of asphyxiation or a crushed windpipe.

We know Jay-Z provided one of his best verses in a while on Young Jeezy‘s “Seen It All,” the title track from his upcoming album, but is this the best collaboration these two have ever had? Jeezy is putting his money down on it. During his interview with MTV, Jizzle reveals a few fun facts about how the song came about. First thing’s first, the single was supposed to be for Hov’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, but was put on hold for Snowman’s Seen It All album. Most interesting, Jeezy claims Jay told him he teared up while writing his verse because he was keeping it so real in the lyrics. He puts it on the Bible he was being 100% authentic too. The track struck Hov so much he recorded it and sent it back in 30-40 minutes tops. Go spin that verse back again and pay your respect to Shawn Carter.

We as a nation have come to an understanding over the last four seasons of The Walking Dead, and it is this: If Daryl Dies, We Riot. This is not in dispute. If Robert Kirkman or AMC decides to rid The Walking Dead of its most popular character, the 28 million of us who watch The Walking Dead each week will remove ourselves from our couches, pick up our pitchforks, and make our way to Georgia, where we will riot until such time as AMC and the powers that be figure out a believable way to permanently resurrect Daryl Dixon without straining credulity or turning him into a zombie. This is the unilateral contract we have made with AMC. AMC agrees not to kill off Daryl Dixon, and we agree to continue watching the series. Killing off Daryl would, in fact, represent a breach of that contract. We can only be made whole again by either specific performance, or a riot on the set of The Walking Dead or approximate property therein. However, a new image released by AMC exclusive to Entertainment Weekly asks a different question: What is the protocol on binding and gagging Daryl? walking-dead-03_612x924 VIA EW This certainly represents the threat of death. Should we reciprocate by threatening to riot? Register a complaint? Start a riot petition? Or does this threat cross over into a pseudo-breach? The attempted murder of a character? After all, the fifth season premiere is still two or three months away, and yet AMC is dangling a potential Daryl Dixon death in our faces. Is this considered intentional infliction of emotional distress. Or cruel and unusual punishment? And if so, does it rise to the level of a riot? Even a low-level one, in which we mill about the set of The Walking Dead with large sticks and mutter while getting autographs from the rest of the cast? Cause that’d be pretty cool, actually.
