Written/Copyright 2014 – Eric Reports News
July 17, 2014, Staten Island, N.Y. Police stop and try to arrest Eric Garner, age 43, for selling cigarettes on the street. In the ensuing scuffle, Mr. Garner was choked and his chest was compressed, so that he could not breathe. He can be heard saying, “I can’t breathe,” six times. Nevertheless, it is so important to arrest a black man for illegally selling cigarettes, that it is imperative that they kill him, because what else could be more important? What could be worse than selling cigarettes without permission?…Right?
Dec. 3, 2014. Despite the cell-phone video taken by a bystander, clearly showing that Mr. Garner was killed by the police for no reason – the Grand Jury chose to acquit the police responsible. (Note: the system chooses jurors who cannot fathom the police doing anything wrong.)
I don’t care who you are and I don’t care what you think you know – this was MANSLAUGHTER. (Murder in the third degree.) As for those who say, “He resisted arrest”, what did you expect him to do? Lie face down on the sidewalk like an animal? Is that where we are now? If this is all the police have to do, I think this country needs to re-examine what the purpose is of a police force.
Why do I say Eric Garner was killed twice? Because he was killed once on July 17th, then killed again on December 3rd, when the perpetrators of this crime were set free.
