A New York City grand jury found “no reasonable cause to vote an indictment” in the Eric Garner case. Garner was an unarmed Black man (& father of 6 children) jumped by four cops & held in a chokehold by a white cop for suspicion of selling cigarettes illegally. Either the US has the world’s dumbest prosecutors or the system is bunkering down for outright war on Black civil rights.
Civil rights activists in NYC are out in force near Rockefeller Center where the Christmas tree lighting ceremony is scheduled later tonight. The colossal political blunder of Ferguson is now compounded. The counterforce of justice will be mighty.
