Lives Matter

While small-minded tools like former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, former New York governor George Pataki, and President of the NYC Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, Pat Lynch, mouth conservative talking points laying blame for the murder of two NYPD officers on everyone…but the actual shooter, the plain facts remain:

Eric Garner: Murdered by a NYPD police officer who used an illegal chokehold…IS STILL DEAD!

John Crawford: Murdered in an Ohio Walmart by police officers who shot him for holding a legal pellet gun (an item for sale in that very store)…IS STILL DEAD!

Tamir Rice: Murdered by a rookie Cleveland police officer only two seconds after the officer arrived on the scene in his cruiser…IS STILL DEAD!

Michael Brown: Murdered by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer…IS STILL DEAD!

We know, in this country, who receives justice and who does not.
