Eric Garner was assaulted and killed because he was suspected of selling loose cigarettes.

Even though only 100 cigarettes were found on his body (a misdemeanor charge), a police officer falsely accused him of selling 10,000, a felony, in the arrest report.
The Staten Island DA's Office had the fucking audacity to charge Garner with two misdemeanors after his arrest.

They. Charged. A. Dead. Man.
To be clear: even if Eric Garner was the loosie kingpin of the Greater NYC Area, HE DID NOT DESERVE TO BE SUMMARILY EXECUTED BY A COP ON THE STREET!
He possessed cigarettes with out-of-state tax stamps which was evidence he was evading NY's tobacco tax laws.
