USA: Watch Eric Garner protesters ‘die’ in NYC streets

Hundreds of protesters fanned out across New York City on Wednesday after a grand jury decided not to indict New York Police Department (NYPD) officer Daniel Pantaleo in the July 17 death of African-American Eric Garner.
Several dozen demonstrators protested by lying down in the street. Others carried placards reading “Black lives matter” and “Racism kills” while chanting slogans including “Whose streets? Our streets!”
Eric Garner died July 17 after Pantaleo put him in a chokehold as multiple NYPD officers tried to detain him on charges of selling loose cigarettes. Garner was unarmed at the time of his death.
The New York grand jury decision comes a little more than a week after a grand jury in Missouri decided not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown.

Can anyone breathe freely in a police state? Legalized murder is still murder. Anyone who doesn’t understand that has sold their mind into virtual slavery. How fitting.

I certainly hope it will not lead to a 2nd Civil War. The US may have a 2nd Civil War but hopefully not for racial reasons.
I agree, Lo. May the next Civil War be about rejecting violent means in resolving any kind of problems, as “violence leads to more violence.” A “civil war” of civil disobedience to the black magicians who’ve taken over this country and most of the world’s governments in their insatiable desire for more money (that they could ever spend) and the power over others and the exploitation of the general public, pitting one against the other as a distraction while they implement their nefarious schemes for self and crony self-aggrandizement.
Good to see black Americans standing up for their human and civil rights again as they did in the 60’s.
As for these “grand juries” investigating crimes against humanity and coming up with very peculiar decisions, it may be time again for citizens review boards, which are public, in examining police violence and the murder of unarmed people.
But then we are in the Kali Yuga…..?
Great points, Frank.
Those in the 1% would love to keep us divided and conquered. We must resist this. And like you said, non-violently.

the time has ended when they can just keep doing this then have a blue-ribbon panel to smooth things over….
I so agree. The protests are continuing, that’s a good sign.
