Needs to quit

United States

Hundreds of friends, family members and advocates gathered in Brooklyn to mourn 43-year-old Eric Garner, the man who died last week after the NYPD allegedly put him in a chokehold while making an arrest.
The Rev. Al Sharpton spoke at the funeral at a church on Bergen Street following an afternoon wake amid intensifying outrage and growing debate over police protocol. Garner will be laid to rest Thursday after his family says their private goodbyes at the funeral home.
"Let's not play games with this," Sharpton said Wednesday night. "You don't need no training to stop choking a man saying 'I can't breathe.' You don't need no cultural orientation to stop choking a man saying 'I can't breathe.' You need to be prosecuted and you need to be put away."

Al Sharpton is 100% correct - the police officers who choked Eric Garner to death need to be tried for murder in the 1st degree - and put away for life!

If these police officers got the punishment they DESERVE - perhaps cops would think twice before chocking a BLACK PERSON to death for a minor misdomeanor crime the next time...
If you watch the video of the police attacking Garner you can clearly see there was absolutely no need for the brute force they used on him. What they did to him goes way beyond what was called for. I counted 4 police officers holding him down...

What was the terrible crime that Eric Garner had committed that caused the police to murder him??? It's been reported the man was selling cigarettes out of a pack on the street.
Yes, I suppose selling cigarettes is a crime - but is it a crime punishable by death???

If you want to know the real reason the police murdered Eric Garner - it was because HE WAS BLACK!

This was not the first time the police had unnecessarily stopped him because, everytime Garner appeared in public - the police UNNECESSARILY stopped him for something...

This is also not the first time we've seen recent incidents of an office of the law - unnecessarily beat a black person for absolutely no reason - other than being BLACK.
Just a few weeks ago a mentally ill BLACK woman was shown on the ground being beat horribly by a highway patrolman or police officer (don't know which). The film showed him using his fist to pound her to a pulp right in the face & head and all over her upper body. The beating continued on & on & on & on. I'm surprised the woman came out alive...

I truly believe - because of the intense hatred many people have for President Obama - some police officers are actually taking out their hatred on BLACK PEOPLE...

As I've said many times before on this forum - the time we're living through (Obama's time as President) will go down in history as ONE OF THE MOST SHAMEFUL TIMES IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION...

No, this time will not be SHAMEFUL because of President Obama - or his governing of this country - but for the horrible way many Americans treated him...

No, President is destined to go down in history as one of the BEST PRESIDENTS this country has ever had...

However, the Americans who refused to accept Obama is president - will also go down in history as some of the most racist, ignorant mean-spirited idiots the world has ever known!

Now, I'd like to ask some of your brain-washed ditto heads (who are constantly trashing Obama)- are you really going to tell your grandchildren that you were one of the racist, ignorant mean-spirited, ignorant idiots who tried to bring Obama down....

What do you think your grandchildren are going to think when you tell them that you were that full of HATE...

What kind of example do you think this will set for your grandchildren...?

I suggest DON'T BE A REPEAT OFFENDER. AND IF YOU CHOOSE TO CONTINUE ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES AFTER REPEATED WARNINGS, AT LEAST BE SMART ENOUGH TO FOLLOW POLICE INSTRUCTIONS WHEN BEING 'RE-ARRESTED.

Remember, the democratic party needs those tax dollars you are cheating the government out of with your bootleg cigarette sales. They've got kids to feed, clothe, birth, abort, get glasses, fix teeth and educate.

So, all you socialists pay those taxes and quit stealing money from the kids! You may end up in a choke hold and die if you do.

I don't care if the man was a repeat offender- his "big crime" of selling cigarettes out of a pack - did not justify 4 "so-called officers-of the law" - THUGS to choke him to death!!!

These violent "so-called" THUG - officers of the law need to be tried & thrown into jail for the rest of their life - ALL FOUR OF THEM...

Maybe this would send a message to all "offcers of the law" that you do not murder a NON-THREATING law breaker in your attempt to apprehend him/her...

Watch the video - and you will see that the murdered man was not being a threat to the police officers. Yes, he was slightly resisting arrest - BUT HE WAS NOT THREATENING - IN ANY WAY!

Resisting Arrest!!!as you say is not Threatening to A police officer?? what are they supposed to do if They Perpetrator refuses to Arrested? are they supposed to plead with the criminal? are they supposed to wait him out while another crime is being conducted? They guy only had to turn around and put his hands behind his back!! but no!! he decided to play victim!! if your not guilty you have nothing to hide just cooperate and before you know it your on your merry way! Ive been there this happened at MardiGras and I knew to turn around shut my mouth and put my hands behind me!! I was let go within 15 minutes!!!!! Why He had to resist is beyond me!!!WHY did he?????

Now we learn the DOJ is getting involved in the choke hold case. But, they refuse to come to the rescue of the marine rotting in a Mexican jail for the crime of making a wrong turn at the border.
Why???
Because Eric Holder is a racist. The bootleg cigarette seller was black the marine is white. One was a blatant repeat offending law breaker and one was a confused driver at night.
Eric Holder has been a racist from day one. He overlooked the black panthers intimidating voters in Philadelphia during both Obama elections. He's a white hater who is unable to distribute justice fairly.
America deserves better.

Jerry,
Your stupid post deserves an equally stupid answer...

I guess (according to you) the cops should just knock their brains out till their dead -or- chock them to death...

What's with you, Jerry - just a few posts back - you were wanting to throw these cops (who killed Eric Garner) into a prison where they would be immediately be killed - by inmates...
