 Note, Dred Scott Decision, America Supreme Court, decision in March 1857.  Blacks are not citizens, they could never be citizens,they are property, not people. No Black person could sue in court. The decision was reversed by the Civil Rights Act of 1865.

It became a police incident due to Mr. Garner dying from the attempted arrest. There has been national coverage of the incident.
