...a former high school wrestler, pulled Davis off his friend and put the would-be robber in a headlock.
It was strong enough that Davis apparently choked to death, sources familiar with the investigation say.Yikes. All this over a cell phone. I have seen in the news that smart phones are the newest target for thieves. While a cell phone isn't worth dying or killing for, the victim attempted to stop the theft (which I believe is a victim's right to do) and was put in a headlock by the robber. I think we can see from the end result that this can be deadly. Therefore the victim's friend's use of deadly force is justified, although I'm sure that wasn't his intent. That said, they live in New Jersey. I think the laws of time, space and physics change when you cross the border into that state and New York. I hope the DA doesn't do anything stupid here.
