New York, NY —Selling cigarettes on the street cost a man his life. Think about it for a moment. Trying to make a meager living in a miserable economy by selling a legal product deserves death now in New York.
That’s precisely what happened to an obviously overweight (350 lbs.) and unhealthy man last week. A squad of cops investigating this tax transgression approached Eric Garner . Garner actually begged the cops to leave him alone. Soon Garner began to shun the cops and resist being handcuffed and the cops piled on him. All too quickly, Garner was dead.
Was it the long banned chokehold? I don’t think so. I suspect positional asphyxia was the actual cause of death. Does it really make any difference how they killed him? Garner was killed not by policemen in the true sense of that noble occupation but a gang of government extortionists.
This was not about anything more than the attempted evasion of an outrageous tax on a legal product that millions consume in America[...]
According to the officers on the scene who apparently were familiar with Garner pursuant to his repeatedly statements, Garner was selling bootleg cigarettes.
However, the citizen reporter/witness videotaping the assault has stated repeatedly while filming that Garner was merely breaking up a fight.
And so, the cover up begins, in spite of the video showing that Garner was clearly in distress and the use of an illegal chokehold that was banned twenty years ago by NYPD, these things are not mentioned in the police report.
In fact, supervisors and officers on the scene later interviewed failed to mention the chokehold and stated that Garner did not appear in distress. Of course, witnesses who were not members of NYPD are telling a completely different story. See: Internal NYPD report on incident with Staten Island dad Eric Garner does not mention chokehold, states he was not ‘in great distress’.
Black America must get to the business of putting the grievance industry that makes millions pushing the race card on these killings out of business.
Mr. Garner deserves justice, no one will deny that. However, in order to receive it, race baiters need to stay out of it.
Al Sharpton will tell you that he is seeking justice for Eric Garner but Sharpton’s game is to enrage, distract Black America from the truth behind the sins of the police state and the man (Barack Obama) who has set the police state on steroids.
Calling a spade a spade, (no pun intended); the murder of Eric Garner was not about race. It is about Obama’s creation, i.e., the paramilitarization of the police state.
When the police state kills, it rarely does so because of an individual’s race but as long as Americans continue to believe this fallacy, we will never successfully deal with this all-American problem. Thus, it is high time that Americans come together to take on the paramilitarization of the police state which must be dealt with other than on the basis of race.
If not, the police state will continue to extort citizens as mentioned in the above article and murdering innocent Americans, not just Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, AMERICANS, harming our children and committing puppycide.
