This doesn’t surprise me; the easiest way, it seems, for the police to deflect attention from their shortcomings, is to attack the supposed shortcomings of their critics. Case in point: by arresting both the individual who filmed the events surrounding the murder of Eric Garner – yes, I said murder there; I’m simply going by the decision of the NYCME concerning Garner’s death – and his wife, the NYPD are hoping to poison anything either person says should either go before a trial jury in the future.
The outspoken wife of the man who took the amateur video of Eric Garner’s fatal confrontation with police was arrested Tuesday night in connection with an assault on a woman in Staten Island, according to police.
Ronald Jackson’s blog is on blogspot which does not have an option for reblogging to Word Press blogs. His article is good and you might want to visit to read the full article he has posted. It includes a video that reports on the arrests of Ramsey Orta and now his wife, Chrissy.
Ramsey Orta is the man who videoed the police putting Eric Gardner in a choke hold. The medical examiner has ruled that Gardner’s death was a homicide.
Is there anyway that the public cannot see this as retaliation by the Staten Island police?
