On July 18th we watched the death of an unarmed black man put in a chokehold by NYPD, only to have the NYPD Police Union hold a press conference today, to say that he was not put in a chokehold.
Eric Garner’s death ruled as homicide: http://bit.ly/1oWIkCS

Pissed off? Want to do something? You can join me in mailing a pic, or pictures, of Eric Garner in a chokehold. As a bonus, you can add other pictures of chokeholds in comparison since the Police Union President doesn’t seem to know what a chokehold looks like. Or if you’re in NYC, show up at their office:
