Microsociology of Death of Eric Garner: 27 Seconds of Choking by Jooyoung Lee

University of Toronto sociology professor Jooyoung Lee has written a very interesting blog post analyzing the video of the choking death of Eric Garner in Staten Island.

It is a miscrosociology of the event that is also informed by Lee’s practice of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

He blogs on Blogspot rather than WordPress platform so I cannot simply reblog his post, but here is the link: http://gunsrapcrime.blogspot.ca/2014/12/choking-for-27-seconds.html
