For selling individual (single) cigarettes !!!! It’s the SMALLEST of smaller offenses. This is TRULY a sad day for New York – a sad day for America – 5 days after a Grand Jury in Missouri did NOT indict officer Darren Wilson !
And, with THAT amount of evidence, how can you NOT indict?
Sad. Everyone loses. But Eric Garner lost his LIFE!!!
The US attorney general, Eric Holder, has announced a federal investigation into “potential civil rights violations” around the death of Eric Garner after a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the New York police officer who placed the unarmed black man in a chokehold.
Thousands of demonstrators disrupted New York City traffic into the early hours of Thursday after the grand jury verdict. Mostly peaceful protests had sprung up on Wednesday evening at locations throughout Manhattan, including Grand Central Terminal, Times Square and near Rockefeller Center, after the panel returned no indictment.
The New York protests were civil, with about 30 arrests by mid-evening. Police were showing restraint and allowing demonstrators to block traffic briefly before coaxing them to move on.
ESTAMOS VIVENDO O INICIO DE UM NOVO MOVIMENTO DE DIREITOS CIVIS NASCENDO NOS EUA – por causa da terrivel morte de Eric Garner e o ridiculo veredito do Grand Jury de Staten Island (NY)
We are witnessing the beginning of a NEW Civil Rights movement in the USA –
