NY Father Dies After Being Choked By Police

A Staten Island man died as police tried to take him into custody Thursday afternoon, and the incident was caught on video by a bystander. 43-year-old Eric Garner, known as “Big E” to many in the neighborhood, went into cardiac arrest as police attempted to handcuff him around 4:45 p.m. outside 202 Bay Street in Tompkinsville. The NYPD says they were arresting him for selling untaxed cigarettes, but witnesses say he had just broken up a fight and was wrongly targeted by police.

In the video, which was obtained by the Daily News, Garner is seen telling officers, “I was just minding my own business. Every time you see me you want to mess with me. I’m tired of it. It stops today!” The Staten Island Advance reports that Garner was out on bail with three pending criminal cases against him, all involving charges of possession and sale of untaxed cigarettes.

Another witness tells the Advance that Garner “tried to break up the fight—the two guys fighting, they saw the cops coming and walked away.”

When more officers arrived at the scene and attempted to handcuff Garner, who weighed 350 pounds, he’s seen swatting their hands away and saying, “Don’t touch me, please.” One officer puts him in a chokehold as the others struggle to pull him to the ground and get his arms behind his back. Garner, an asthmatic, can be heard repeatedly saying, “I can’t breathe.”

"They jumped him and they were choking him," says Ramsey Orta, who knew Garner and took the video. "He was foaming at the mouth,” Orta told The News. “And that’s it, he was done. The cops were saying, ‘No, he’s OK, he’s OK.” He wasn’t OK.” Another friend of Garner says, "He’s a very big man, very intimidating, but he’s just a big teddy bear. He’s the nicest guy. I can’t believe what I saw. That’s no way to do an arrest."

One police source tells the Advance, “He absolutely resisted arrest. He took a fighting stance.” The official NYPD statement asserts that Garner was selling untaxed cigarettes. “Upon attempting to arrest the suspect for the violation, the suspect went into cardiac arrest and was transported by EMS to Richmond University Medical Center where he was pronounced DOA. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.”

Garner leaves behind 6 children including a 3-month-old daughter, Legacy Garner, and a wife, Esaw Garner, who tells the News her husband was unable to work because he suffered from chronic asthma, diabetes and sleep apnea. “When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner says.

The Advance reports that within an hour after Garner’s death, handwritten signs hung near the incident declared, “no justice, no peace” and “Another innocent black man has been killed by police brutality. The NYPD must be stopped!” One police source tells the News, “A guy is dead in our custody. That is always a potential problem.”

Losing you

Hero

My flag is American, but I love some Queen
I’m young enough to vote, and toke the trees
I’ll be playing concerts in the mud, until the sequel
I’ll be finding subjects to paint in the buff, behind the easel
Tryna fuck, I’m a bad boy
I’m a punk, I’m a black man, I could dunk


And I’m hanging low, and swinging for
Home, home


What you say
You need a Hero
Heard ‘em say
You need say


How high, tell me how high shall we jump
How far, really how far have we come
I’ve been wondering if we’d be better off without it
I was wondering were we better off before


Who needs you, who needs you
Who loves you, who doesn’t
What you say
You need say

The 5th year struggle…

It’s quite obvious that only I would take to tumblr to rant about such a touchy subject. The subject in question has brought me to my knees- not too many things can. Day to day I am faced with the constant stubble of submitting to failure by becoming just another statistic. Informally one could accuse me of being lazy or downright hypercritical to the cause of graduating. The fact of the matter is there’s a certain boiling in my soul that startles my inner peace every now and then. Beyond a reasonable doubt with the existence of my being at the university for which I attend I have held high prestige and have done things that have irrefutably impacted the community. Why must my persistence be tested daily? Is it not bad enough that I was denied from the beginning. The fight for education of the black community has not ceased to exist; it has been masked with a new veil called Upper Middle Class. Please take the time to enlighten my senses as to what this exactly. Objectively one can not toss the race card around without caring to explain but as far as the economic realm is concerned there is no explanation needed. The fact of the matter is that as much as many individuals would care to characterize one specific ethnic group along the lines of economics… there are no lines for economics. Economics is as uneasy as one can only imagine. As Lupe said it best, “Greed is colorblind, so I’m colorblind. They ton’ fuck with yours soon as they done with mine.” This rant is something more… constructive. It is coming to a sincere agreement that the Middle Class is declining immensely in the educational system without a doubt do to the senseless politics that were created for the secondary education system. But, don’t mind me I’m just a 5th year college student undermined by the poor selection of career goals. The only question that I do ask of each of you to consider, how in fact will a nation grow after it no longer has anything to thrive on?
