Eric Garner

There is something painfully and tragically wrong with this picture. I am reminded of an old friend who once confided in me that she feared for her Black sons each and every time they left the house. That conversation happened about twenty-five years ago. Nothing has changed.

Perhaps there are cases that require brutality - this was clearly not one of them. No indictment, even with clear images in real time? What now?

Rest in Peace, Eric Garner.
