Eric Garner and the Threat of (Big) Black Male Bodies

The determination of police culpability in the #EricGarner case may rest on the fear of his big, Black body. |

I feel like I was just here, in this melancholy space, contemplating the needless death of another Black male. The next one always comes “too soon” and the last one always seems like yesterday. Last week saw the violent death of 43-year-old Eric Garner, allegedly at the hands of the Staten Island police. Another one.

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.
 






This man had 6 kids bruh. 6. Plus grandchildren. The world is truly fucked.

This is heart breaking
