The message is painfully clear: “This Ends Today.” In the ongoing aftermath of a confrontation with NYPD that resulted in the choking and death of Eric Garner, the Staten Island man’s brother and daughter have expressed their grief in an unlikely way: through song. Above: Garner’s daughter, Erica, leading a protest in Staten Island after the Grand Jury’s decision not to indict the police officer involved in the chokehold death of her father. Getty Images / Andrew Burton Entitled “This Ends Today”, the emotionally gripping song features a rap verse and vocals from Garner’s daughter Erica and his brother, Steven Flagg. The song opens with a muffled voice recording of Garner’s final words (“I can’t breathe”) before Erica sings the chorus: “Who is the man with the strength to choose? / When the rest refuse / And I say, ‘This ends today.'” Flagg then cuts in with a growly rap verse: “It ...
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.

SEE IT: MTA cops make first arrests related to Eric Garner protests after Grand Central attacks MTA police are now laying down the law with die-ins, making their first protest-related arrests on Tuesday afternoon, officials said. Officers were lenient on arrests during protests in Grand Central after a Staten Island Grand Jury decided against indicting an NYPD cop for the death of Eric Garner, MTA sources said. But the protesters crossed a line when they physically engaged two MTA police commanders during a protest at Grand Central, said MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan. YouTube Activists protesting against police brutality hold placards with the names of some 150 people who they said were ‘killed or brutalized’ by the police, during a demonstration in Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday. "We cannot and we will not tolerate attacks on our police," he said. Now, MTA cops will be actively enforcing against the protests, including rules that prevent people from sitting or lying on the ground. View Gallery Prote ...

On Saturday, December 20 at 4 PM, Rev. Kate Lore and the Albina Ministerial Alliance for Justice and Police Reform will lead a Prayer Vigil and March through Northeast Portland in memory of Michael Brown, killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner, killed by a police chokehold in Staten Island, New York.

The Prayer Vigil and Rally will also honor Trayvon Martin and Tamir Rice, a 12 year old shot by police in Cleveland, as well as Portland victims of police shootings and deadly force, including Kendra James, James Jahar Perez, James Chasse, Aaron Campbell, Keaton Otis, Jose Mejia Poot and others. The theme of the Vigil and March is a Cry for Justice.

Stan Savran is a commentator in Pittsburgh and between periods of the Penguins-Blue Jackets game on Monday night the veteran broadcaster dropped an incredibly insensitive remark. Speaking with Jay Caufield, Savran made light of the Eric Garner situation: "I thought, Jay, the Penguins would have to put on those 'I Cant' Breathe' t-shirts for a while because Columbus was suffocating," said Savran. That's pretty obtuse when it comes to understanding the levity of the situation in Staten Island and the continued unrest brought on not just by Garner's death but the deaths of Michael Brown and Tamir Rice.
A Staten Island Grand Jury indicted the man who filmed Eric Garner, but not the man who killed him
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 " . ...

Eric Garner's daughter is staging a "die-In" this afternoon Staten Island
"I can't breathe" Earlier Tonight NYC Protesting the death of Eric Garner,~ Ab unarmed Black Man who died during police chokehold- Location Broadway and w116th Street. Garner's death has harrowing digital footprints. His attempted arrest and struggle for air were captured on a widely-disseminated video. His final words were “I can’t breathe.” Besides the banned chokehold used by Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who brought Mr. Garner down, throwing a beefy arm around his neck, there was lethal danger in the way Mr. Garner was subdued — on his stomach, with a pile of cops on his back. “positional asphyxia” quoted the New York Police Department’s guidelines on preventing deaths in custody. “As soon as the subject is handcuffed, get him off his stomach. Turn him on his side or place him in a seated position.” The New York Medical Examiner’s office ruled Mr. Garner’s death a homicide, it cited “compression of neck (choke hold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restrai ...
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 ...

Outsiders see Staten Island as 'divided' following Eric Garner incident
Call me racist, call me crazy, call me what you will. But I am having an increasingly difficult time with all these protests and demonstrations in cities far away from Ferguson, Mo. and Staten Island, NY- some as far away as London England. Solidarity is one thing, and maybe these two killings have struck a resonant chord (prejudice against African Americans still exists here and elsewhere ( But England?! What are they called in England? African Brits?). Why am I troubled? In part because these two killings and failures of Grand Juries to indict police offices involved are very different. Michael Brown's case was not clearcut, was he the victim or aggressor originally, while Eric Garner's case was clearly police bothering someone for a petty crime and then using a banned chokehold that lead to his death. What has me especially torqued this morning, was a crowd shot from U.C.

Following the lack of indictments in the case of Ferguson and Staten Island, it is ever more pertinent that we make a stand. This Die-In is to raise awareness of the unjust and unnecessary killing of black men, lie in solidarity with them, and declare that police brutality is unacceptable. We will lie on the ground for 4.5 minutes (representation of hours Mike Brown laid on the ground after his death), and have signs about the harmful effects of structural racism within our society. Lie with us for justice! Lie in solidarity for Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, And the many more men who have lost their lives from police brutality.

On my way to Staten Island to the scene of the chokehold of Eric Garner.
Pantaleo who applied the lethal chokehold on Eric Garner was supervised by an African-American female NYPD sergeant. Having that black sergeant in charge of that crime scene takes race out of the equation. As awful as Pantaleo’s actions appear on that video, at no time does that black sergeant order Pantaleo to stop choking Garner. With a population that is 70% white and 10% African-American, when a Staten Island Grand Jury is presented with a white cop supervised by a black sergeant applying a lethal chokehold, it eliminates the racial component. . .

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
AP report describes Staten Island as NYC's 'outsider borough' in the wake of Eric Garner decision via
I wear a hoodie every day to the gym. So does my husband. A friend recently told me he would never wear a hoodie. Not coincidentally, he is a tall African American. Those who never think about the danger of wearing a hoodie are likely not tall African Americans. They don't think that what happened to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Eric Garner of Staten Island, 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, and to too many other African American men would ever happen to them. In each case, the individual details are combed through by grand juries --and police are exonerated as having done what seemed warranted at the time. The point is, these cases started because each assumed a large African American--with or without hoodie-- was potentially dangerous, was potentially carrying a gun, and would need to be dealt with brute force if any action or verbal response was deemed dangerous. This is a larger problem, and every time police are exonerated, it continues to obscure the larger problem of perception and action.

Racism is embedded in the very foundation of America. And it’s that racism — stark, in-your-face, never-ending, frequently murderous — that has so many African-Americans so angry and frustrated, so furious, so enraged. Black people all across America, not just in Ferguson, are angry about the killing of Michael Brown. And they remain angry over the killing of Trayvon Martin. And many are seething over the fatal chokehold clamped on the throat of Eric Garner by a cop on Staten Island in New York — a cop who refused to relent even as Garner gasped, “I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.” Now, because of the persistence of racism and a relaxation of the fight against it, we are moving backwards. Ferguson is just the latest illustration. They are angry about all those things, but they are also angry and frustrated about so much more. Here are just a few of the complaints. Black people are angry about voter suppression — the relentless, organized, years-long effort to prevent African-Americans fr ...

Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, is at least the fifth unarmed black man to be killed by a white police officer in the past month (along with Eric Garner of Staten Island, John Crawford of Ohio, Ezell Ford of Los Angeles, and Dante Parker of Victoville California). Most of the residents of Ferguson are black; almost all its police officers are white. Yet a new Pew poll shows Americans sharply divided over whether the shooting of Michael Brown raises an important issue of race. While 62% of white Democrats think it does, 61% or Republicans think it doesn’t, and that the issue of race has got too much attention in the shooting. On what planet are those who don’t believe race is at issue here living?

...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 ...

Eric Garner, Staten Island dad: Left to die while looked on.
The police officer who placed Eric Garner in an apparent chokehold has been sued for civil rights violations twice within the last two years, according to multiple reports. Three men have sued Officer Daniel Pantaleo in federal court since 2013 for what they argued were unlawful, racially motivated arrests, the Associated Press reported. In the first lawsuit, two black men claim they were arrested without cause and subjected to a "humiliating and unlawful strip search" on a Staten Island street that involved ordering them to "pull their pants and underwear down, squat and cough," according to the report. A plaintiff in the case, Tommy Rice, 41, said several police officers -- including Pantaleo -- pulled him and some friends over for a broken taillight before strip-searching them on the side of the road, the New York Times reported. Rice said they were arrested on charges of using a vehicle to purchase narcotics, the report said. The men said they were held overnight on charges that were ultimately dismis ...

Chokeholds were banned by the NYPD more than 20 years ago. Why in the *** was one used to kill Eric Garner?
I want to send special prayers to the family of Eric Garner. A life lost that can't be replaced. My God! Today, I joined clergy members and the Staten Island community with my colleague Debi Rose in the midst of such an unspeakable tragedy. I can't begin to describe my feelings but share all of the concerns expressed. I thank our Mayor Bill deBlasio and Commissioner Bill Bratton for immediately calling an investigation into this. Mr. Garner easily could have been my own relative and constituent and I'm truly saddened by this and full of emotions. No one should have to bury a loved one whose life is cut short in this way. Thank You to all the city officials for your presence and support. I pray that God will provide all the answers needed and bring comfort to the Garner family. 🙏🙏.
