"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



Last night on tv  the mother of   Eric Garner   43

choked to death by police  for selling loosies*   spoke

eloquently: Protest calmly  Have dignity   My boy

had none   Big black man   asthma  6 cops   Use your

imagination  Father of 5  married 27 yrs.   Don’t they

give tickets in New York City?


Esaw Garner  widow  did not accept the officer’s apology

Hell no, the time for remorse was when my husband was

yelling I can’t breathe  He’s still feeding his kids  and my

husband is 6 ft. under



*loosies – single cigarettes
