I've agreed to serve on a panel at the annual "Martin Luther King Jr. Remembrance Ceremony 2015" (also known as the "Martin Luther King Jr. Prayer Breakfast") which will be held this coming Saturday at 9 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Dodge. In other words, we will be addressing an audience at this event. The event is open to the public, and includes a light breakfast. I've been informed that the panel is going to be focusing on issues such as the following: The state of race relations in America today, the police shooting of Michael Brown and its aftermath in Ferguson, the police shooting of Eric Garner and the Grand Jury verdict in New York City, the recent killing of two NYPD police officers, and what our country needs to do to move in the right direction when it comes to race and racism. I've not had much time to think about what I will say at this event, due to my busy schedule this past week. But I will be writing down some thoughts tonight and tomorrow evening. If any of my frie ...
New York City first lady Chirline McCray, in an essay published in Essence magazine, said she mourned Eric Garner's death last July in Staten Island as a "step backward" for the community.
Sources in the mainstream media expressed outrage after a Grand Jury declined to indict a New York City Policeman in the death of Eric Garner, but there are 11 significant facts that many of them have chosen to overlook.
So once again New York City Police officers by the thousands turned their backs on Mayor Bill DeBlasio after being directed not to do such a thing by their boss Commissioner Bill Bratton. It was a disrespect to the widow of officer Liu and shows you just how out of control NYPD is at this time.. A few things to keep in mind.. First and foremost the rationale for them turning their backs is that a criminal who shot his girlfriend decided to ambush two NYPD officers and said it was in revenge for the non indictments of officers who killed Eric Garner and Mike Brown.. As journalist and as police officers who do investigation, one is charged with the duty of finding out what sort of direct connection the assailant had with protests. We are charged with finding out if the assailant listened to a speech or read something by Mayor Bill deBlasio and decided to act upon it in such an egregious manner... and even if he did, should the person who voiced a concern or opinion about the behavior of public servants b .. ...
It's a sad day in New York City today, where mourners are gathering for the funeral of officer Wenjian Liu. But the tragic killings of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu has led some NYPD cops to turn their backs – literally – on NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio. Police are reportedly in a work stoppage over what one NYPD leader called a “hostile antipolice environment” after months of Eric Garner and Michael Brown protests. At AJ+, we penned an open letter asking: Is there a better way forward?
The funeral of P.O., now Detective Ramos was today. The Police turned their backs on the Mayor. This is despicable. The "talking head" around this political nightmare is Former Mayor Giuliani. Giuliani ran for mayor as the Law and Order Mayor. He created the monster that is now the NYPD. With all due respect to our murdered Detective Ramos. Giuliani reshaped the NYPD and was influential in their training. He hired a criminal to be the Police Commissioner and wreaked havoc on the lower classes of this city. As a matter of fact he said that the people protesting the Eric Garner murder were breaking the law. I watched a video where a police officer murdered a suspect and the "city" Grand Jury decided no crime was committed. It is a crime however to demonstrate in the street according to Giuliani. So the police took necessary steps to arrest and remove people from the street. The former Mayor talks about New York City as if it were a post card on a refrigerator in Holland. This city Mr. Former Law and Order . ...
Source: ktla.com - Sunday, December 21, 2014The man who shot and killed two New York City Police officers as they sat in their patrol car had posted angry messages on social media, ranting against the government and police, New York Police Department’s Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Sunday. Ismaaiyl Brinsley is seen in a 2009 booking photo after an arrest on a felony robbery charge. (Credit: Springfield, Ohio, Police Department) Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, also posted messages of self-loathing and despair and made reference online to Michael Brown and Eric Garner, African-American men who were killed by police. “I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours, Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” an Instagram post read, authorities said. Brinsley had a lengthy criminal record. He was arrested 15 times in Georgia for assorted crimes and arrested four times in Ohio, Boyce told reporters Sunday. He was in prison in Georgia between August 2011 and July 2013 for criminal possession of a weapon, Boyce said ...

A.M. Links: Eric Garner Protests Close NYC Bridges and Thoroughfares, AG Nominee Loretta Lynch to Oversee Federal Inquiry into Garner’s Death, Satanists Join Florida Capitol’s Holiday Display : Source: Reason.com – Friday, December 05, 2014 Thousands of protesters occupied the streets of New York City again last night in response to a Grand Jury’s failure on Wednesday to indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner. At times protesters clashed with police and temporarily succeeded in shutting down traffic on both the West Side Highway and the Brooklyn Bridge. "The federal civil rights investigation into the chokehold death of Eric Garner could present a new complication for Loretta E. Lynch's nomination as attorney general, because she will be heading the inquiry as the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York even as she undergoes scrutiny in the new Republican-controlled Senate."

Pantaleo in the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner. Pantaleo is white; Garner is black. That one fact meant that the President of the United States and the Mayor of New York City took to the microphones to denounce American racism. President Obama talked about the “concern on the part of too many minority communities that law enforcement is not working with them and dealing with them in a fair way.” De Blasio went further, of course, calling for “action” and suggesting that the incident represented the culmination of “centuries of racism.” Unlike the Michael Brown killing in Ferguson, Missouri, there is excellent cause for concern here. But that concern does not mean that facts of the case ought to become irrelevant. The Case. The incident was caught on tape by a friend of Garner’s, and shows Garner, who weighed some 400 lbs., being confronted by police over distributing unlicensed cigarettes (colloquially called “loosies”). The video shows Garner resisting arrest, although not violently s ...
New York (Reuters) - A New York City Grand Jury on Wednesday returned no indictment against a white police officer who used a choke hold on Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, while arresting him for illegally selling cigarettes, local media reported.

Waaayy back in July of this year, when the Eric Garner case first broke nationwide, we published the following opinion piece about the incident. Now, the fact that a New York City Grand Jury (of all grand juries!) has just cleared officer Daniel Pantaleo of any probable crime really tells you someth…
NYTIMES EDITORIAL: The Staten Island Grand Jury must have seen the same video everyone else did: the one showing a group of New York City Police officers swarming and killing an unarmed black man, Eric Garner. Yet they have declined to bring charges against the plainclothes officer, Daniel Pantaleo, who is seen on the video girdling Mr. Garner’s neck in a chokehold, which the department bans, throwing him to the ground and pushing his head into the pavement. The imbalance between Mr. Garner’s fate, on a Staten Island sidewalk in July, and his supposed infraction, selling loose cigarettes, is grotesque and outrageous. Though Mr. Garner’s death was officially ruled a homicide, it is not possible to pierce the secrecy of the Grand Jury, and thus to know why the jurors did not believe that criminal charges were appropriate. What is clear is this was vicious policing and an innocent man is dead. Another conclusion is also obvious. Officer Pantaleo was stripped of his gun and badge; he needs to be strippe ...
Taxed To Death, The Case Against Eric Garner My Friends and Fellow Loved Ones, I have something share. On this day I have a take on that of One Son, Father, Uncle, Cousin, Brother, Grandson, and Friend, Eric Garner, who died at the hands of New York City Police Officers on July 17th, 2014. Coming out of the Grand Jury this day was a non-indictment. A No-True Bill by it's Judicial Sealing. But what is not being called "what it is", is that Eric Garner was Protesting Taxation by selling "Single Cigarettes" on the streets of New York City - A Protest against Taxation on that of which he had already paid taxes on - a pack of cigarettes. Which by the way we don't even know if he had any cigarettes because in New York the Grand Jury Procedure is Non-Public Disclosure. He was accused of selling cigarettes. Previous Arrests of Eric Garner give suggestion that he may have been selling cigarettes because he was known for it. That and a phone call to NYPD suggesting he was back on the street selling cigarettes. Eric ...
Eric Garner's family suing New York City over his death
September 3, 2014 Hon. Jonathan Lippman Chief Judge New York Court of Appeals 20 Eagle Street Albany, NY 12207 Re: Ramsey Orta Dear Chief Judge Lippman: The video-taping of police misconduct in New York is illegal. If Ramsey Orta had not been a brave soul, the nation would have been unaware that chokeholds with fatal consequences were still in vogue in New York. Nonetheless, Orta had to pay a price for exercising a First Amendment right. With financial assistance from some of my supporters in the United African Movement, I placed a full-page ad in the Amsterdam News in December 2013 opposing the appointment of William Bratton as Police Commissioner of the New York Police Department. I foresaw the use of chokeholds and "stop, question and frisk" in New York. On August 1, 2014, the chief Medical Examiner of New York City classified the death of Eric Garner as a "homicide." The video-tape showed that P.O. Daniel Pantaleo applied the fatal chokehold. This evidence would have constituted probable cause ...

Police confront protestors in Ferguson AP Ferguson, Missouri, has been consumed with protests since Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, was shot to death by police on Saturday. Brown was not the only African-American man killed by police in recent weeks under disputed circumstances. Consider these three other recent incidents: Eric Garner, Staten Island, New York / July 17: Eric Garner, a 43-year-old asthmatic father of six, was confronted by New York City Police officers for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes. When he resisted being cuffed, an officer appeared to put him in a chokehold—a tactic banned by the department since 1993. A video of the arrest, first obtained by the New York Daily News, shows Garner gasping,"I can't breathe!" while officers relentlessly smother him: The city Medical Examiner later ruled Garner's death a homicide, saying neck compression from the chokehold killed him. But the officers involved in the arrest may not face charges if the homicide is found to be ...
President Obama makes statement, he says heartbreaking what happened to this young teenager. The Mother of Michael Brown, demands that the name of the police officer be released now. Protest, peaceful and calm marches continues, protestors shouting "Hands Up Don't Shoot" Just when we were relieved to hear that Theodore Wafer was found guilty for shooting and killing Renisha McBride, right on the heals of the verdict comes another African American, murdered. Prayers go up for the family and the community in St. Louis. Police in Ferguson say they will not release the officer's name responsible for the killing of Michael Brown, because of death threats. The officer shot this unarmed teen eight times and left him for dead in the streets, never called for any kind of medical assistance. Familiar, as Eric Garner who was killed in New York City by an officer's choke hold, no medical assistance for him either they just looked over his body, did not try to help, pronounced him dead.
Dear friend, Last week, the video of Eric Garner dying on the ground after an NYPD officer put him in an illegal chokehold – supposedly over selling cigarettes without a license – outraged New York and the world. New York City officials like Mayor Bill De Blasio are responding by promising to investigate and discipline the officers involved. But right now Governor Andrew Cuomo is considering signing a bill that could all but eliminate the ability of government officials across New York State to discipline police officers engaged in misconduct or abuse. Tell Governor Cuomo that if police can arrest, jail and use force against New Yorkers, they can’t be allowed to bargain their way out of being held responsible to New Yorkers. Under this bill, disciplinary policies for police officers across New York would be subject to union contract negotiations. Police union rules are designed to protect police officers – at all costs. How would victims like Eric Garner get justice? Take action: Don’t let polic ...
