Have you ever been choked? If it's done right you don't say a Goddamn word. All you make is some squeaking noises. Your eyes will pop out of your head, the veins in the neck will break, you will turn bright red or, in Garners case Barney purple. NONE of that happened.

Pantaleo didn't get behind him and wrap his arms around Garner's neck and back of head and apply pressure that would cause death. Pantaleo did not continue to choke Garner until his body was lifeless in his arms.

You people that insist on claiming that Garner was murdered by being choked to death are dummies. You sound stupid and you are all ignorant.

The fact that we have NEVER seen the full ME report and the fact that Pantello was never indicted, and the fact that the justice department led by Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and now Jeff Sessions have not moved forward with the case just proves that this entire situation was politically motivated by deBlasio and Sharpton to divide the city, the nation and move forward some piece of crap progressive agenda that does nothing but line the pocket of the liberal elite. What does the community like to say? Get "woke"? Another stupid ignorant phrase. How about wake the **** up dummies.
Nice story.

But guess what? He died in a chokehold.

5.9 million reasons say so.

Will the cop hating criminal apologists admit that the world is better off with Eric Garner dead?

Actually no, that's not what it says. I believe the official settlement stance by the NYC was that Garner died in police custody and the city or NYPD doesn't admit guilt.

If we are going to label something "white privilege", then this silence is a case of "black privilege".

Um, no, there is no such thing as Black privilege. Try again. Sure, minorities have things like affirmative action so that they would have equal opportunities as whites, not more. But there aren't any advantages to being born Black in this country, society (as a whole) doesn't intrinsically treat you better just for having dark skin. Have you ever heard of such a thing???

The Straight White Male is the height of privilege in America. Just look at your president. Do you think literally anyone else would have gotten away with the trash he's tweeted, or the things he's said or done???? Denying White privilege doesn't make it less real.

No one's saying you have to be ashamed to be White. Accepting your privilege doesn't mean you're succumbing to guilt or whatever. Just be mindful of it and respect others. That's all you have to do.


I regards to Erica Garner's family, good for them! In their shoes, I'd want the same thing.

Nonsense. Apply for a municipal position in black-run Baltimore. You'd better be black if you want the job. Your blanket statements are just more of the same victimization that comes from indoctrination.

Another example of black privilege is the limits they are allowed when it comes to hate speech. Turn on black talk radio and listen to the hate spewed against whites and Hispanics. If any radio station allowed the same "discourse" about blacks, it would be shut down by the FEC. No joke.

Another example is the exorbitant settlements paid to the families of people like Freddie Gray and Eric Garner. Has anyone ever heard of a white person's family getting such a huge settlement when their loved one was killed due to police misconduct? No, because it has never happened. Such is the price of riot insurance.

Dont be dishonest. Lets turn it around. Would "only white journalists" get a pass? It should be condemned and that you admit you would succumb to racism if you were in their shoes is appalling.

I love how the cop haters ignore the fact that the guy was in terrible shape(morbidly obese), with a heart condition. On top of that, he should of known the routine, but no, lets defy, resist, fight back. It's a badge of honor in the thug world. Well he showed them all didn't he. How is that working out for him now?

On the other hand, if she is White and said only Whites will comment. Trump will be on it right away! He's got her back.

No trump is not like Obama who would do as you suggest.


Trump is not a racist like Obama who tried to divide the country along racial lines.

And if that straight white male is also a short, poor, ugly, disabled immigrant, he is at the "height of privilege"? Its stupid to generalize like you do.

Everyone has advantages and disadvantages in various situations. Thats not the same as "privilege".
