Eric Garner & New York

Eric Garner, aged 43, was an American man from Staten Island, New York, who died after a New York City Police Department officer, Daniel Pantaleo, put him in a chokehold which may have contributed to Garner's fatal heart attack. New York (locally ) is a state in the Northeastern region of the United States. New York is the 27th-most extensive, the 3rd-most populous, and the 7th-most densely populated of the 50 United States. 5.0/5

"We may have different takes on the events of Ferguson and New York,” Obama says on cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner
In a Democracy Now! web exclusive, we speak with retired New York City Police Department detective Graham Weatherspoon about the Grand Jury decision not to charge a white New York police officer for causing the death of Eric Garner by placing him in a chokehold.
Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland and two of the city's former top cops - C.O. Bradford, a current City Council member, and Lee Brown, a former Houston mayor - were panelists for "After Ferguson: Where Do We Go from Here - Part II." They joined more than a dozen other panelists at The Community of Faith Church, including Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, to continue a community conversation that started in December to address police brutality issues sparked by the deaths of black men killed by police, namely Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in New York. Attendees also were galvanized by Grand Jury decisions that cleared the officers of criminal wrongdoing in those incidents. The December town hall, which drew several hundred people, allowed residents to interact directly with Anderson and Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia. More than 200 people on Thursday night heard how McClelland would resolve challenges in citizen and police interaction. The Houston Police Departmen ...
I have not rant in awhile but I will unleash my venom tongue about few things. Respect to all the wonderful police officers out there. It is a tough job to put your life in danger every single minute of the day you work. Nothing we can do to stop the ones who abuse their authority. It is up to them to self examine themselves and make the right choice because every grown individual responsible for whatever choice they made. Now I am still sad and outraged about the senseless death of Eric Garner as equally as Officer Lui and Ramos. We are living in a greedy world where I don't believe in foundation because everyone who starts a FOUNDATION usually does it to make money for themselves and their family by profiting off of someone who is death or something like that. Now everyone setting up fund for Officer Lui and Ramos and claims all proceeds will go directly to them, it's a lie and a scam. Daily News have a fund, a bar in Staten Island and God knows who else.

Hitting the nail on the head. From today's Patriot Post: NYPD Officers Pay With Their Lives By Mark Alexander Two weeks ago in my column "Blame Racist Cops?" I published a detailed analysis of how Barack Obama, his Attorney General Eric Holder and their senior adviser on "race relations," that raging racist Al Sharpton, launched the 21st Century Policing Task Force, a $265 million charade based on the assertion that most white cops hold racist views on "people of color." To distract attention from his cascading domestic and foreign policy failures, as affirmed by the resounding defeat of Democrats in the 2014 midterm elections, Obama and his race antagonizers seized upon a duo of emotive diversions -- the deaths of two black men, Michael Brown in Missouri and Eric Garner in New York, as fodder for a national crusade against a political straw man: endemic racism in the ranks of law enforcement. The underlying assumption of this folly is because "people of color" are arrested more often than white people, . ...
This was a post by a Chicago activist on one of the pages I read regularly. I was moved by his take on the police shootings and his thoughtful response. It is long, but well worth the read. "There's a lot to think about with respect to yesterday's assassination of two New York City cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. First, lets take time out to reflect, pray, offer condolences and not be dismissive about the loss of life. Keep our humanity in tact even as we are angry, upset and disturbed about the wrong doings that routinely impact our community. Dancing on the graves of those deceased is never a good thing.. So with that in mind, what do we know? The narrative we've been given via corporate news outlets is the following; 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot his girlfriend in Baltimore then made his way up to New York, City posted on his instagram account that he intended to 'put wings on pigs' in revenge for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown... He then saw two officers in a patrol car in Brookly ...

A political solution to keep racist police in check By Patrick Maitland Another African American has been dumped into the pool of injustice and racial discrimination, as last week a New York Grand Jury refused to indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner, an African American resident of Staten Island. The decision came as a shock to us, especially because the incident was caught on video. The world watch as Pantaleo, along with three other officers, physically grab Garner. As the 350-pound Garner falls to the ground, Officer Pantaleo is seen hanging on his back with his arm around his neck in a chokehold. The video shows Garner shouting, “I can’t breathe” several times as an officer holds him in the chokehold. Garner, who was being arrested for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, died a few minutes later. The autopsy from the Medical Examiner attributed Garner’s death to homicide -- meaning death at the hands of another party. According to the coroner’s report, G ...
Washington march: Civil rights protest over US police killings Thousands of people have marched through the US capital, Washington DC, to protest against the recent killings of unarmed black people by police. Relatives of Michael Brown, shot dead in the Missouri town of Ferguson, and Eric Garner, who died being restrained in New York, were among them. Both died after encountering police, but grand juries decided not to bring charges, sparking anger and unrest. A demonstration in New York also drew thousands despite chilly weather. Speakers at the Capitol called for changes to US legislation. Lesley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown, told the crowd: "What a sea of people. If they don't see this and make a change, then I don't know what we got to do. Thank you for having my back." The mood in the US capital was described as calm but defiant, with a large number of police on standby. Earlier in the day, a small group of protesters from Missouri disrupted the schedule by taking to the stage at the starting-p ...
New York (AFP) - Thousands of protesters paralyzed parts of New York and Washington on Saturday, stepping up demonstrations across the United States demanding justice for black men killed by white police. The rallies in the US capital, New York, Boston and in several Californian cities were among the largest in a growing protest movement sparked by the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9. Grand Jury decisions not to prosecute the white officers responsible for 18-year-old Brown's death and a fatal chokehold on New York father of six Eric Garner in July, have triggered weeks of protests. Demonstrators shut down parts of Manhattan and Washington's Pennsylvania Avenue that leads to the Capitol with cries of "No justice, no peace!" "Justice Now!" and "The whole *** system is guilty as *** " The mixed crowds of black and white, mobilized many young people but also young families, parents and the elderly. They held up banners proclaiming "Stop racist police" and " . ...

Protestors in New York flooded the streets last week, toting signs that blazed with images and phrases about cruel injustice. Just a week after similar events in Ferguson, a Grand Jury ruled that Daniel Pantaleo — the NYPD officer who put Eric Garner, a 44-year-old, black, Staten Island man, in a
Nearly 30,000 people swarmed the streets of Manhattan Saturday afternoon as part of a day of national protests against police brutality. The turnout in New York appeared to be bigger than at a demonstration in Washington D.C. led by the Rev. Al Sharpton, which drew approximately 10,000. Protesters called for justice in the wake of the deaths of Eric Garner on Staten Island and teen Michael Brown in Missouri. Thousands gathered in Washington Square Park in the afternoon before heading uptown, the crowd stretching back for nearly a mile, according to some estimates. Mostly peaceful, the throngs carried signs reading “Black Lives Matter” and “Not one more,” as they headed north, near Broadway and 32nd Street. Yoni Bronstein, 23, of Westchester, joined the event, dubbed Millions March NYC, to show “solidarity.” “I think New York is more important than D.C., culturally,” he said. “If we take a stand here, it impacts things around the world.” Modal Trigger Protesters in the Millions March wa ...
New York has become one of the epicenters for the ongoing protests for equal justice and police accountability sparked by a Staten Island Grand Jury’s decision to not indict a police officer for the death of Eric Garner. Jay Zand Russell Simmons met with Gov. Cuomo on Wednesday.
2014'S MOST NOTABLE QUOTE IS “I CAN'T BREATHE” "I can't breathe!"—the exclamation made by Eric Garner while in a police chokehold—was chosen as the most notable quote of the year in an annual list released by a Yale University librarian. It was one of several quotes chosen for the list that reflect tumult over race in America in 2014. Fred Shapiro, an associate director at Yale Law School's library, says he had already completed the list without Garner's quote but revised it as protests grew following a Grand Jury's decision last week to not indict a white officer in his death. "These are not necessarily quotes I agree with or quotes I think are eloquent or admirable," Shapiro says, but rather those that reflect the spirit of the times. HERE’S THE ENTIRE LIST 1.

Today, December 6, marks the date in 1961 that the psychiatrist and Pan-Africanist writer and revolutionary Frantz Fanon passed away. Fanon published Wretched of the Earth, a book on decolonization that has remained a classic and influenced revolutionaries the world over, including Malcolm X, the Black Panthers, Che Guevara, and the South African Steve Biko, founder of the Black Consciousness Movement (as noted today by the Zinn Education Project). This quote from him made during a period of anti-colonial struggles around the world, seems to invoke the death of Eric Garner , the man murdered in New York by the police on Staten Island whose last words were: “I can’t breath”, words that have fueled the recent uprisings around the country against police violence. Fanon said: "When we revolt it’s not for a particular culture. We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe.” Frantz Fanon would, no doubt, be writing today about how

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 ...
I hope we all realize after this week that the catalyst of the situation in Ferguson was tragic and brutal, but it was not an isolated event. Any one of us could be Mike Brown (rest his soul), but we cannot let ourselves remain silent and bummed out every time we see it happen in our own home towns too. The people of Ferguson have been living this *** all week and they need their homes back; their children need to go to school. These atrocities are happening in New York (Eric Garner, RIP), Florida (Trayvon Martin, RIP), Cincinnati (Timothy Thomas, RIP) and everywhere else in between. Remember that Ferguson is just different in the sense that we are not able to ignore the evidence that Mike was unlawfully murdered due to the constant surge of information and proof incriminating the Ferguson Police. Bring the protest to your own home towns and keep informed. Bring your phones out and record how you're being treated so no one else can ignore the evidence. As a people, we are strong. Do NOT just sit at home . ...

UPDATE - Weds. July 23, 2014: New Video of NYPD Using Chokehold Surfaces in the Days Following Eric Garner's Death Watch: Watch Here (Uploaded by Animal New York): died after officers placed him in chokehold. UPDATE: Officer Stripped of Badge, EMS Workers Placed on Modified Duty Our earlier post that was up on July 18 (4 p.m.) claiming that Eric Garner was apprehended by NYPD because Mr. Garner was breaking up a fight is incorrect and it is a statement out of context. Mr. Garner was being investigated over whether he was selling "loosies" or untaxed single cigarettes according to the NY Dailynews. "I can't breathe, I can't breathe", Eric Garner, 43, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
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 ...
...well, another police force has endeared us again with the murder of a father of 6 children... a 43 year old New York man who was doing nothing more - reportedly - than selling cigarette's... how about that... selling cigarette's. I wonder if they were 'prescription cigarette's'... and were they being used as a dangerous weapon?. the late Mr. Eric Garner, of Staten Island was terrorizing the neighborhood with a 'deck of butts'... the streets are now "safe", however and the impending danger has been "mitigated"... mitigated to death - with a choke hold by a thug member of a street gang disguised as police officer's... I do know that there are genuine police officer's out there and I am thankful that there are... but the video evidence of what we all used to accept as "died in police custody" is shocking, appalling and undermining the trust that the average person has in the 'police force' of today... the attitude of police, even at traffic stops, is dramatically different than it used to be, even to sobe ...
