Following in the highly controversial case of Ferguson, Missouri, where Michael Brown was shot by a police officer, and, sadly, died, is the more recent case in New York City, to where an “unarmed” man, Eric Garner, died via a choke-hold by a New York City Police Officer.
In The Michael Brown case, it is pretty certain, via surveillance camera, that he did commit a robbery, and apparently had an altercation with the Police Officer, which led to this tragic ending. In the case with Eric Garner, the “crime” was so monstrous that words can barely describe it! Eric Garner was caught selling loose cigarettes. Yes, that’s right! The man was committing the heinous act of selling loose cigarettes! It is almost too incomprehensible to be true, but, Eric Garner’s “crime” was engaging in commerce, to where he, “the seller,” was selling cigarettes to “willing buyers.”
