On Wednesday, a New York Grand Jury made the decision to not indict white police officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner. Pantaleo’s use of an NYPD prohibited choke-hold resulted in the death of the unarmed African-American Garner in July.
On the same day, NYPD Police Chief Joanne Jaffe tweeted #Wehearyou, a new hashtag aimed at strengthening community and police relations.
They are clearly having difficulty with hearing the words “I can’t breathe.”
Since the shooting death of unarmed 18 year-old black male Michael Brown by a white police officer on August 09, the local police wasted no time in turning a small Missouri town into a scene worthy of a Hollywood filming crew.
