    I applaud Mayor De Blasio .He knows the cop was wrong and the way NYPD handled the whole situation from trying to cover up a murder caught on video where there are multiple police and ems workers the conspire to cover up the killing of eric garner and made themselves accessory to the homicide.Shit if I was the mayor I wouldn’t back they ass either.How do they expect the mayor to back them when its caught on video and the whole world is watching.they are putting that man career in the drain with their stupid,racist,and criminal power abusive behavior…We applaud the mayor for his stance.The union leaders are ridiculous and bold face liars…PLS FBI hurry up and take it over.justice for eric garner.

    Black people are human beings and so are Police Officers. I wish black people would ask themselves: Could they live up to the standards they demand from Police people? It would really help if they would respect and obey police.

    Also, Reverend Al Sharpton could make a nice living teaching people how to lose weight and maintain the slimness. It is really needed, and he obviously knows how to do it.
