He said these words eleven times before he fell unconscious while being subject to brutal acts of excessive police force. While Mr. Eric Garner was being subjected to an illegal chokehold, he also had his face crushed into the sidewalk by the knees of a Police Officer.

It is important for you to know some facts surrounding that incident.

Compounding Injustice in Ferguson

You should know that in the wake of the November 24, 2014 Grand Jury ruling that Police Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted for killing Michael Brown, demonstrations have erupted all over this nation - especially in Ferguson, Missouri.

People are frustrated and hurt and disappointed, and I agree that they have reason to be frustrated, hurt and extremely disappointed. What I cannot agree with is the way people are expressing their frustration.
