Source - RIP Eric Gardner

It’s been more than a month since this happened, but please don’t forget Eric Gardner or his story. He can no longer tell it.

Moral of the story is actually don’t get in trouble with the law.

no

Yes

What did he do to get in trouble with the law?
He sold a pack of cigarettes. A pack of cigarettes, legal to sell if you own a business and pay up to the government for a piece of paper that states that you have someone else’s permission to sell something.
That’s what they killed him for.

 He died because he resisted arrest, no cop is going to go up and just put someone in a choke hold for selling cigarettes. They will do that if and ONLY if he doesn’t cooperate initially. Simple. Do what the cops tell you to do.

Is that what you saw? He repeatedly yelled "I CANNOT BREATHE" and was ignored. Placing him in a choke hold, then tackling him and piling on top of him (which you can see for yourself in the video, unless you are denying the actual events as they took place) in which he isn’t resisting arrest, they’ve clearly got him. They also clearly ignored his cries for help. He was not selling cigarettes at the time, he was explaining before they forcefully took him down that a fight had broken out on the street and he was simply trying to break it up. You can clearly hear the others on the street corroborate up his story. The police acted excessively, and now a man is dead over almost NOTHING. So show some damn respect, for if you were being choked to death on the street and yelled out for help, I think you’d want TO BREATHE too. What does "I cannot breathe, I cannot breathe" mean other than the obvious? Mr. Garner was an asthmatic man, and the excessive force to bring him down, placing him in a choke hold and literally crushing all the air out of him while he screamed for his life, that is fucking horrible. Unimaginable, except Mr. Garner’s family not only must imagine this, they must somehow come to terms with it. How does one exactly come to terms with something like this? I have ashtma, and I cannot even begin to imagine the horrible final moments Mr. Garner was experiencing. When you’re having an asthma attack, you need air, not force applied to your neck. Not pressure on your entire body, thus your lungs. Show some fucking respect. Don’t comment on my post and continue to excuse the unexcusable. I can’t think of a simpler way to put it than this: what the police did in this video is unforgivable. It is outrageous that a father in Staten Island could be suffocated to death, have his head slammed into the sidewalk, and left to lie there just dying. The moment those cops chose to approach him, Mr. Garner’s fate had already been decided. There’s no excuse for the unexcusable.
Update and important to note: the chokehold has been BANNED by police departments for years. “Chokeholds are dangerous. In Los Angeles alone, between 1977 and 1982, 16 people died in police custody after being placed in chokeholds. The LAPD banned the practice in 1983, and the NYPD followed suit 10 years later. Since then, however, many New York cops appear to have ignored that ban. From 2009 to 2013, the city’s Civilian Complaint Review Board received more than 1,000 complaints regarding NYPD chokeholds. The CCRB substantiated just nine of those complaints, and only one officer was disciplined — by being docked some vacation days.” (Source)

An advertising campaign for a Kazakhstan gay bar has taken out a bronze award at a regional advertising competition despite causing outrage by showing Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and Kazakh composer Kurmangazy Sagyrbayuly kissing


A controversial advertising campaign for a gay bar in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan is causing controversy despite winning a regional advertising award.
Posters for Almaty gay bar Studio 69 show Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and Kazakh composer Kurmangazy Sagyrbayuly kissing passionately and have been the subject of official complaints – though homosexuality has not been illegal in the country since 1998.
The poster campaign was designed by advertising firm Havas Worldwide Kazakhstan and is a play on the club’s location – on the corner of Kurmangazy and Pushkin streets in Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan’s Regional Department of Internal Affairs has accepted complaints about the advertising campaign despite it winning a bronze award at the Red Jolbors Fest advertising competition for the Central Asian region in the Outdoor Advertising category.
However one of the campaign’s creators took to social media to defend the campaign.
‘It is strange that advertisers believe that there are forbidden topics,’ copywriter Valery Volodin posted to Facebook, according to TengriNews.
'This work can make one proud. First of all because it works - people get the message and remember the address. Secondly, it is a bold work, and in the case of the gay movement, traditionally living on the edge, it is more than accurate and justified.
'The jury of Red Jolbors fest gave it only a bronze award, and who are we to judge the judges. Bigotry, get out!’
The advertising campaign would have been illegal in neighboring Russia and there have been calls for Kazakhstan to introduce its own laws banning so-called public ‘homosexual propaganda.’

Glendale, Missouri police officer removed from duty for Ferguson comments.
This makes four officers that I know of who were removed from duty due to actions and comments. You think it isn’t about race? That these officers are fair, not overly violent, and police evenly? When you have criminal justice scholars, professors, textbooks, and research telling you that the system is racist, you won’t believe it. People like you are the problem. Facts do not mean anything, when it forces you to re-examine your own prejudices. Cognitive dissonance is a bitch.


Look at that. 4 for 4. But people wanna believe Wilson was a special snowflake
