Overview
There is a reason behind this bold letter book which you will have to indulge on the inside of. If law enforcement can boldly, continuously kill unarmed black men and teens then why shouldn't these racist deaths be typed in the bold center fold of these crimes. Being a plus size woman as Eric was a plus size man gave the cops an excuse that his size killed him. Do you mean to imply that if I as a black over weight woman, was to be arrested, would my weight be a reason to kill me as well? This tragic story has the world wondering about the reasons to kill a black unarmed teen, father, son, husband and grandfather. As you look at the video and in the eyes of several law enforcement men and women, what did you see? Did anyone see love, concern, safety, gentleness to Garner's head that just was left to hang low. I Can't Breathe was stated to be common, popular words from many that are arrested. I Can't Breathe was ignored 11 times. I Can't Breathe became words that no one cared to hear. The last words, I Can't Breathe took away a husband, friend, father, son, giver, care giver, grandfather. If Garner was so unhealthy, then how come he didn't demise when he had just previously broken up a fight? How come Eric didn't catch an asthma attack after what he did? Many people enjoy watching a good fight which can lead to death. Before he was killed Eric Garner stopped a fight and remained alive. Being big, tall and black with no knife, gun or any type of weapon caused the NYPD to walk away with another black crime. The daughter of Garner that spoke on CNN and millions of children and young adults all over the world does not practice racism or even look at this crime in that way. Children today are being taught how to not like other races, cultures and food. No one is born stating that they want to be a racist, this cruel word is being shown by law enforcement. This well known word has been around since the beginning of time. How can we put an end to the hatred and excuses to kill? We need a permanent solution for our babies, youth and young adults. One day our children will want to become a NYPD police officer. What kind of example is being set? It is not a very good one. This is a terrible mess to clean up but no way un-doable. The NYPD needs a major clean up, a major tune up and a mind free and clear of bias. Taking the law into your own hands because a culture is different, unemployed, hustling or homeless gives not one cop the right to keep killing. When you kill a family man there is a huge effect that you bring on to the children in that family. What bothers and hurts me is the fact that no one cared that Eric had a family. NYPD does whatever to stay alive so they can return home to their families. If you are facing a fear of blacks, Hispanics, big, tall, small men, then why did you choose a profession that is suppose to make the world a safer, crime free place. How can this society ever become crime free when the police are guilty of many themselves? As an asthmatic I can relate and know what it feels like to be able to talk and struggle to breathe. On several occasions I was all alone calling 911 barely breathing to help me. Many times I would think would this be the attack that takes me out. I can imagine and know how Garner felt because I was almost incubated and admitted for my asthma through the years. It's a lonely feeling when so many are surrounding Eric and not one face of concern on their faces. I can't Breathe which was loudly heard 11 times was ignored as a common word, for people that have to be arrested. Question? Has there been any other black male saying I Can't Breathe 11 times other than Eric Garner?
