See The Role that Obama’s Runaway Bureaucracy Played in the Death of Eric Garner at PJ Media.  

One sentence from the essay:
Since 2010, that’s a crime, sayeth the unaccountable bureaucrats at the Food and Drug Administration.

  1. Race baiters, take notice of this: Black Female Sergeant supervised deadly arrest of Eric Garner. Why didn't she put a stop to what was going on? If she was present at the scene, of course.

    1. The video that has been released does not include her picture, but according to Breibart, she is in it, and no doubt the Grand Jury saw it. How does Eric Holder claim a Civil Rights violation when she supervised it. She could have called it off at any point.

    2. Yes, and we all know how we can trust the of of 'Breibart,' lol!

    3. This One,
      You are an idiotic troll who doesn't even know how to use Google search.

      See this article in Salon, a source that I'm sure you accept.

      Plenty of other sources also confirm that Kizzy Adoni was the commanding officer at the scene.

  2. The very real concern for me is if we see *a steady and incremental increase in disrespect for uniformed officers and the service they provide, and more importantly *a decreased willingness by officers to perform their duties for fear of reprisals.

    Last time I checked we were not a country with a Jury-by-video process. In other words, if I was not present prior to and during the arrest of Eric Garner I am not a reliable witness, and neither is a short video clip an entirely reliable witness.

    Although against choke holds because of how they affect the carotid arteries and blood flow it seems that the ample girth of Mr. Garner made it impossible to take him to the ground any other way.

    A sidewinder here, from my writing.

    My greatest concern is a growing sense of "intelligence" and entitlement which a digital age affords us. We view a short video. We imagine ourselves Hesiod or Astraea. We protest like we are Zeus.

      That's an important point, IMO.

    1. This thread is about the death of Eric Garner -- not about the death of Michael Brown.

  4. I understand the 'broken window' theory of community policing, but is this really a good use of the police force?

    What do you think they make? 30 bucks an hour, times how many of them were swarming around.

    If Mr Garner had complied with police commands, he would still be alive. Having said that, the cop who thinks he was in a WWF match was out of line.

    He went from zero to 60 on a clearly unarmed man who jerked away from cops trying to cuff him. Even worse, the cop executed his technique poorly. Had he done that on a smaller man, he probably would have killed him much quicker than Mr. Garner.

    1. SF,
      It seems to me that Garner was more frustrated than actually resisting arrest.

      If I'm not mistaken, the officer said, "Get off of my step." He owns the sidewalk?

    2. I don't even mind the attitude so much. They've gotta be tough guys, I guess.

      Being a former martial arts fighter, I zoomed in on the technique, which I've already said he executed poorly. Jujitsu offers dozens of easier and more humane techniques.

      Garner was resisting arrest. When a cop goes to cuff you and you resist, well, that's resisting arrest, although Mr. Garner did not attack anyone; he flinched away.

      Unfortunately, once the cops give an order like that, you comply or face the consequences. In this case multiple factors conspired to kill the man.

      It's sad.

  5. I have a few questions:

    1..Why wasn't the police sergeant (Kizzy Adoni?) brought up on charges? Could it be that she wasn't brought up on charges because she is black?

    2. What about the higher ups at the NYPD? A sting operation is supposed to be ordered from a higher level than sergeant, isn't it?

    3. Did Eric Garner have any job other than selling loosies?

    4. Why aren't people marching in the streets demanding a change in the law about selling loosies?

  6. And here's something else....Could the Obama administration be edging toward federalization of local police forces? I fail to see how that would be a good thing!

    1. Our feral government, with way too much GOP cooperation is federalizing everything else, why would they want to leave policing untouched?

      I think its a very real possibility.

  7. Leave it to wingnuts to find a way to blame this on Obama, lol!

    The right got away with the contradictory testimony in the Brown case, but many believe he too was murdered. Including me.

    How some can spin actual footage into something other than Police brutality and murder proves they are either racist or full of crap.The video clearly shows Garner did not need to be taken down. He was killed pure and simple.

    1. No, dingdong,

      The liars who said they saw the officer murder Michael Brown changed their stories when put under oath or refused to testify.

    1. If certain laws (i.e., the law prohibiting the sale of loosies) are objectionable to the point that they shouldn't be enforced, protesters should be stating so instead of protesting against the people who enforce the law.

      Last night, the protesters in NYC disrupted commerce at Macy's during Christmas-shopping season by staging a die-in. Just how does Macy's have any culpability in the death of Eric Garner?
