The Government's Hold on America

Police Brutality at its Finest

Eric Garner

Eric Garner, a 20 year old black male, was murdered by a police officer named Daniel Pantaleo in Staten Island, New York. The officer used excessive force while putting him in a choke hold and stepping on his head and chest. Despite this all being caught on video tape, the grand jury decided not to indict him. He will receive no consequences for committing murder.

Mike Brown

Michael Brown, an unarmed, 18 year old black male, was shot to death by police officer Darren Wilson. Multiple eyewitnesses stated that Brown had his hands up in surrender when he was killed. However, the grand jury did not indict Wilson. He will never face any repercussions for his actions. Brown's death attracted the most attention from the media resulting in hundreds of protests and riots throughout the country.

Tamir Rice

Not even two weeks ago, Tamir Rice, a black 12 year old boy, was murdered by police man Timothy Loehmann in Cleveland. A neighbor called 911 to report Rice had a gun that was probably fake but she wanted to make sure. However, Loehmann shot rice within 2 seconds of being on the scene. Hopefully, Loehmann will face the proper consequences for his actions.
