43-year-old Staten Island resident ERIC GARNER, as a New York City police officer wrapped his arm around his neck and other officers knocked him to the sidewalk, one pushing his head violently into the concrete.
Garner died at the scene; seconds before, he complained as the officers tried to arrest him for “breaking up a fight,” according to eyewitnesses.
God damn it.

I was trying to explain to a friend/coworker the other day how women are always collateral damage to US imperialism (ie sexual assault by soldiers at military bases in foreign countries) And she was like “but the army bosses aren’t explicitly tell them to rape!” And I was like they don’t have to, they just have turn a blind eye to it. And she was like “not our fine men and women in the service.”
If you look at the world and say “Yes, there are enough homes for people, yes, there is enough food for people, but if we give it away for free they won’t have earned it and the economy will collapse.” Then you have chosen money (a constructed medium of exchange) over living beings who only want to continue living in peace and safety.
And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system.
