In that sense, the law was a contributing factor in his death, just like the NY's "loosie" ban was a contributing factor in Garner's death, but his own decisions also contributed to his demise. If you aren't capable of grasping that, I don't know how else to explain it to you.
You know, it's possible to understand what a person is saying, yet still disagree. You know that, right?
