What’s going on in New York

Eric Garner

I had heard very little about this event before coming into English class today. However, after talking to my classmates about it and watching the video that my English professor had played, I was much more informed. After the Michael Brown incident with the Ferguson case and now this with Eric Garner and the grand jury, this is getting out of hand and this is simply unfair to particularly the black population. Eric Garner had a wife, a child, and a role as Santa for his grandchildren. Now a family is destroyed while all the cop can do is apologize while he is still living and providing for his family while Garner’s family remains unstable and emotionally stricken. All I can say that this is not just for Garner and other people and their families.┬áSomething has to be done although I do not know the solution.
