News: The death of a Staten Island man who police put in a choke hold has been ruled a homicide. The medical examiner says Eric Garner died of asphyxiation. A video of Garner’s attempted arrest sparked outrage across social media.
Comment: This is a senseless tragedy. This poor man made it clear he was not able to breathe, and yet the thugs in blue continued the brutality that has become commonplace in the force.
And the most heartbreaking thing of all will come a few weeks from now, when the officers are completely cleared of any wrongdoing. It’s time for citizens to realize that the police are the real crooks, and should be treated as the enemies they are.
