Internal Pentagon “investigation” determined it was an “error.” No one was punished, much less allowed to say a U.S. warship had no business being there.

Rally/Speak Out: Come out and stand in solidarity with the Garner family, friends and community to continue to create a voice that is loud and precise that it could not be ignored.
On July 17, 2014 Eric Garner was approach by plain clothes officers from the 120th precinct. In the video that was taken by Ramzey you could see that Eric Garner was upset because he was targeted by these plain clothes officers before. He begs the officers to leave him alone and one of the officers waited for the opportunity to sneak behind Gardner and jumped up and place Garner in an illegal chokehold and Gardner slowly fell down to the grown while the officer still had the chokehold on him, then the same officer released Garner and put his knee on Gardner neck while he was screaming that he could not breath. Police continue to stay on top of Garner until he became motionless and died.
Eric Garner was murdered by Daniel Pantaleo, a plain clothes officer that put Gardner in an illegal chokehold.
Police Patrol Guide: 203-11 states, “Members of the NYC Police Department will NOT use chokeholds”.
Brothers/Sisters in that community are tired of the abuse and they are tired of the police brutality they are facing in a daily basis.
On Dec. 22, 1994 Anthony Baez was put in a chokehold by NYPD officer Francis Livoti from the 46 precinct and it ended with the death of Anthony Baez. Bill Bratton was the NYPD commissioner and when he was confronted by the Baez family in a town hall meeting, Bratton called the Baez family a bunch of fools.
July 17, 2014 Eric Garner is put in an illegal chokehold by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo from the 120 Precinct and it ended with the death of Eric Garner. Bill Bratton is the NYPD commissioner and he said that people should not jump to conclusion until all the facts are out.
Ran into some good friends at the sox game!

Looking good looking good… I’m satisfied with the transfers this summer.
We shall be good as long as we don’t loan out too much of our young talent on the bench.
Can’t wait. Countdown begins. 1 month away from today…

Slave gravesite in New York City
“SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU:
The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.
The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan.
Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.”
Literally, and daily.
Fucking terrible and heartless.
My heart just played dead
Tons of respect for Germany on their victory today….
But it was extremely Sad to see Brazil go out like this. Even tougher to see Brazilians heartbroken & some of my fav players walk off the pitch crying…
"I just wanted to make our people smile. Everyone knows that I just wanted to make the brazilian people happy, even if it’s just about football"
Keep your head up @davidluiz_4 !!
