The black guy who got choked was still doing something illegal though, wasn't he?

I mean, I agree that killing him was not at all warranted, but the ad made it look like the police just randomly decided to kill a completely innocent black man.
And the chokehold case was more of the exception rather than the rule; in many cases the black guy explicitly tried to kill the cop.

That is heartbreaking; it's one of the best political ads I've ever seen.

No, it is a rule. It is banned by the city and by the NYPD. Police are not allowed to put someone in a chokehold.

I still wonder why Clinton is getting so much support from the black community instead of Sanders.

"The senator didn't reach out to me all of a sudden because he needs help with Black people. He didn't put out a press conference announcing that we would be working together. He didn't force me to frame my support of him around a subject matter that special interest groups that support him can get behind."
