Why Bill Bratton, Who Never Should Have Been Appointed, Must Go
Embattled NYPD Commissioner Bratton -- from "broken window" to chokehold death
The death of our Brother Eric Garner must be put at the doorsteps of New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Bill Bratton.
Bratton's "broken windows" theory on crime is stupid and racist -- arrest people, especially Black and Brown people, for minor crimes now then you will prevent them from committing major crimes later.
This practice is causing more unnecessary violent confrontations with police and our people. An elderly man was beaten by police for jaywalking and now Brother Garner was choked to death for allegedly selling loose cigarettes.
He told them the he wasn't selling any cigarettes and after they attacked him he told them eight times that he couldn't breath. These killer cops should be tried, convicted, sentenced and thrown under the jail for the rest of their lives.
Most importantly Bratton must go! He should have never been appointed.
