"In the schools, they kindle patriotism in the children by means of histories describing their own people as the best of all peoples and always in the right. Among adults they kindle it by spectacles, jubilees, monuments, and by a lying patriotic press. Above all, they inflame patriotism in this way: perpetrating every kind of harshness and injustice against other nations, they provoke in them enmity towards their own people, and then in turn exploit that enmity to embitter their people against the foreigner."-Leo Tolstoy

Activists demand resignation of NYPD commissioner after death of Eric Garner

MANHATTAN, N.Y. — A small group of activists gathered near City Hall on Monday to call for the resignation of Police Commissioner William Bratton and a federal investigation into what they called the Police Department’s “culture of brutality.”

The rally featured calls for Bratton’s ouster, in the wake of the death of Eric Garner, a Port Richmond man who died while being arrested by plain-clothed NYPD officers on Thursday.

"He is a poison to communities of color in New York City," said Josmar Trujillo, one of the activists, said of the city’s top cop. "We need a New York City that has justice for everyone."

Protestors Call For Bratton’s Resignation In Wake Of Staten Island Man’s Death In Police Custody

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

A group of demonstrators is calling for the resignation of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after a Staten Island man died in police custody last week.

The group, known as “New Yorkers Against Bratton,” held a small protest Monday outside City Hall. Protesters said Bratton needs to be fired after the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner last Thursday.

“Commissioners need to pay the political price. If that were to happen, if Commissioner Bratton were to resign, if Mayor de Blasio were to ask for his resignation, it would send a signal to all future commissioners that brutality is unacceptable, that their jobs are on the line,” New Yorkers Against Bratton Spokesperson Josmar Trujillo told WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb.

Staten Island man dies after NYPD cop puts him in chokehold — SEE THE VIDEO

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.

and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.
 






fucking shit; pigs get more and more repugnant with each passing day
