For selling cigarettes “illegally” …

STATEN ISLAND, NY — A man died following a brutal arrest in which NYPD choked him and slammed his head against the sidewalk. Police say they suspected him of selling cigarettes without government permission.

The violence occurred on July 17th, when NYPD officers approached Eric Garner, 43. Late that afternoon, witnesses said that Garner, described as a “gentle giant,” was standing on the sidewalk and had played peacekeeper by breaking up a scuffle between two parties.

But police weren’t interested in taking a report about the fight.

NYPD was evidently investigating one of New York’s most egregious crimes — face-to-face cigarette sales on the sidewalk. With New York City’s oppressive “sin taxes,” packs of smokes cost as much as $12 to $14 each. Mr. Garner had in the past been arrested for selling cigarettes for 50 cents apiece. NYPD believed that he was doing it again.

“Every time you see me you want to mess with me,” Garner told NYPD. “I’m tired of it. It stops today!”

“Why you touching me? I didn’t sell anything!” Garner insisted. “I was breaking up a fight,” he added. Witnesses corroborated the account.

“[Garner] tried to break up the fight — the two guys fighting, they saw the cops coming and walked away,” said Valencia Griffin, who saw the confrontation. Mr. Garner was the only one still on the sidewalk moments later when the police walked up.

Garner’s objections were not taken kindly. Five officers abruptly rushed him and commenced their assault. One cop proceeded to wrap his arm around Garner’s neck in a choke hold, causing the large man physical distress and obstructed breathing. Garner’s head was slammed against the sidewalk, a cell phone video indicates.

“All I kept hearing from him was, ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe,’” recalled Ms. Griffin. “He never fought back — he didn’t know why they were arresting him.”

“The cops slammed him to the ground and threw the handcuff on him,” said Taisha Allen, who saw the confrontation. “I saw saliva and blood coming out the side of his mouth. It was awful that something like this had to happen.”

“When he was on the ground, they kept holding him by the neck,” witness Gordon Benson recalled. “He just gasped and then stopped moving.”

Upset onlookers gathered around after witnessing the choking. One officer shooed them back, ironically telling the crowd, “Please try to give him some air.” Garner was then carted away on a gurney and pronounced dead.

Later that evening, NYPD’s press office released the following statement:

“On Thursday, July 17, 2014 at approximately 1648 hours, police observed a 43-year-old male selling untaxed cigarettes in front of 202 Bay Street within the confines of the 120 Precinct. Upon attempting to arrest the suspect for the violation, the suspect went into cardiac arrest and was transported by EMS to Richmond University Medical Center where he was pronounced DOA. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death. The investigation is ongoing.”

  2. Natural Authority – everyone is free to test its truth for themselves:

    Archimedes of Syracuse’s principle indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. Archimedes’ principle is a law of physics fundamental to fluid mechanics.

    Abnormal Violent Chimpanzee (False) Authority

    Rules are decreed from violent men with means to kill any who disobey. No rational basis to confirm such rules exists.

    Seven stages of life in God’s Creation – Believe or Else!

    God demands the submission to his Will. God’s law spans creation from the beginning to the end. Those who embrace submission will be rewarded by God.

    The word of God is Peace. The traditional greeting of God’s devotees is peace be unto you. Who is God? God is The One and The Only God who created the worlds, Angels (created by light), Jinn (created by Fire), Satan (devil) is an outcast Jinn, man (created from sounding clay), animals, and contents of the universes.

    God is One, there is no God other than Him, without any partners, He is eternal without a beginning and enduring without end, Absolute, Self-Sufficient, Self-Existing, never dies, not borne nor gives birth, has no companion and nothing is comparable to Him.

    He never sleeps nor slumbers. All-Knowing, All-Hearing, All-Seeing. Nothing happens except what He wills. He gives life and death. He is The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful. He is intensively and continuously merciful to his creatures even to those who do not believe in him.

    He is far above from any created being. He is The Creator of everything in the universe, heaven and earth and its content. He will never perish or come to an end. When God wants anything to happen he says “Be” and it is.

    God is high above all the creations. Creation of Mankind The first Man’s (Adam ) body was created from sounding clay. His companion woman “Eve” was created from Adam’s rib.

    All his descendant’s bodies are created by sperm of man and ovum of women. Jesus son of Mariam (Mary) was created by God’s word (Be and it is) like Adam but in Mariam’s womb.

    God breathed into the body of man part of His spirit called the Soul . When the soul enters the body it becomes alive. When this soul is withdrawn from the body it dies and the body decays, putrefies and is eaten by microorganisms.

    Every day man experience temporary death at night when he sleeps and resurrects when he wakes up. God keeps his soul in a safe place during his sleep. God has appointed angels as guardians to the right and left side and allowed satan to disturb humans.

    All these facts are described in God Holy Scripture.

    Stage 1. Life in Heaven. God created all the souls of the descendants of Adam and Eve who were predestined to come to this earth. Everything about the universes and our soul before and after creations are documented and recorded in the tablet board in heaven.

    God once asked all of his created souls, “who is your Lord?”. All the souls said “You are our Creator our Lord”. But souls forget the covenant when they descend to the earth.

    Some have faint or vague memory of God in the inner core of the heart. At times of peril, man will automatically shout “Oh God !”.

    But who is that God? If no one tells him he will not know. At that time they usually do not address false gods. They usually point up to the heaven and say Almighty God. If they say that many times they will forget false gods. That is the inner instinct of Humans.

    Stage 2. Life in the mother’s womb. The soul is sent down to this earth into the body of fetus developed in the mother’s womb and the fetus becomes alive. The fetus was swimming in the amniotic fluid inside the uterus like a fish. It does not breathe air.

    The fetus was fed by the blood through the placenta of the mother and supplied to the body of the fetus by means of umbilical cord. In pregnant women there is no menstruation until the baby is born. Do we remember how we lived 9 months inside the mother’s womb?

    Stage 3. Life in this world. At the fetal age of 36 to 40 weeks pregnancy the baby is born. The baby breathes for the first time and cries. Whereas the nurses, friends, parents and relatives laugh, are happy and praise the baby.

    When the same baby become old and dies, the relatives and friends cry. Some practice infanticide (kill babies) if the baby is female. God does not allow infanticide and abortion. The newly born baby is clean, innocent , free from sins, grows, develops , learns and is brought up in loving families.

    The soul in the baby forgot God and the promise (covenant) given in the heaven that God is his Creator and Lord. The babies brought up in religious families will be taught to worship only The One God.

    To avoid worshiping false gods. False gods are either made by man from wood or stone or are some aspect of the creation of God (such as sun , moon, tree, fire, water, animals , spirits, the content of the universe).

    God commands us to only worship one creator but not the creations. Nothing is to be associated with God. God has sent 124,000 Prophets from the time of Adam to the time of the last Prophet, to remind all mankind to worship one God.

    There were divine revelations (books) sent down through Prophets including Abraham, David , Solomon, Moses, Jesus, and for some – also Muhammad.

    Those who believe in one God, his prophets, his books, his angels, the last day of judgment, the next life, good or bad come from predestined decree of God, the existence of hell and heaven, reward for good people and punishment of bad people are eligible to be saved.

    All souls are provided with limited free will to choose. All souls have to taste death. When the soul leaves the body, relatives and friends cry. The soul of man will be extracted by the angel of death either gently or roughly when the time is ripe.

    When a soul is pulled out from the body man must remember his faith in God (that he is his Creator) otherwise he will be sent to hell.

    Satan, the devil is proud and cast out by God because he is jealous of Adam, disobeyed God, and became an avowed enemy of Mankind.

    He has the power to disturb man from the front, behind, by the sides and can enter the body, whisper evil in Man’s heart as approved by God.

    Satan, the devil’s job is to mislead man to hell. It is easy for Satan to mislead men to worship false Gods or their own creations.

    Satan will destroy men by using many tactics but especially by 1. Jealousy and 2. Greediness . Satan was punished because of jealousy and Adam was punished because of greed. Satan certainly will try to persuade you at the time of your death when you are in a semi-conscious state to say that there are other gods than God.

    If Satan succeeds the soul will go out from the body at the time of death without faith and that soul will enter hell.

    The antidote is to declare there is no God except God. This must be said by mouth and believed in the heart all the time and practiced all the time to make it habitual during sleep or while awake or in shock or distress.

    God has provided a way for mankind to drive away Satan by uttering this divine revelation. Whenever a man starts to do anything: eat, drink, sleep, travel, switch on the computer, open the book to read or write, enter bath room , twilight , travel, enter into vehicle, sleep with his wife, get up from sleep, you need only recites this revelation to drive away Satan.

    We must understand that we are tourists traveling and not permanent in this world. We must love God more than our life. Family and other worldly things come next. God says “Man and is created for nothing except to worship and serve.”

    So our first priority is to serve Him and to please Him with good intention. God will not accept the worship or service if performed without good intention.

    To Pay charity or pray to show off will not be accepted. The intention behind the doing of any good must be to please God. You are the representative of God.

    There are five pillars of conduct to follow.

    1. Faith “there is no God except God” This must be believed in the heart and said by mouth repeatedly to become habitual and to not forget at the time of accident or sleep or distress or death. This is the most important faith. This is the visa to enter paradise. Without faith one may not enter paradise. The biggest tug of war inside our soul is faith. You must never bow your head to anything living or non living to worship except God.

    2. Pray five times a day (dawn, afternoon, evening, sunset and night).

    3. Give alms to the poor.

    4. Observe fasting and religious holidays.

    5. Attend church and holy places the minimum of times commanded.

    God has kept open His door of forgiveness and mercy until before a man’s death. You shouldn’t cannot point to non-believers and say they are going to hell because you yourself are not sure about your destination being either hell or paradise. Therefore this stage 3 is very important testing ground for you. It is your duty to remind each other about God, death, the next life (resurrection), reward and punishment, hell and paradise.

    Our Earthly life is like living in a jail in this temporary world. You must obey the laws written in the holy scriptures, avoid adultery, alcohol, gambling, cheating, keep kosher, and not practice usury, etc.

    You must undergo many tests and practice your faith. You must be patient constantly, must bear and accept that good and bad are preordained and decreed by God and say thanks be to God all the time in order to enjoy reward in the Hereafter, which is everlasting.

    You must work hard in this third stage temporary world with fear, repentance. Asking forgiveness for wrong doings, and mistakes, with hope and mercy from God to prevent from hell fire and enjoy reward in the next life.

    God created evil but He does not like it. God created good and He does like it. He encourages us and guides us to do good. He will guide and protect his obedient servants.

    But those who refuse to accept God’s revelation sent to his prophets, and follow Satan, God will not guide them any more. They will go astray. God will forgive all kinds of sins except Polytheism.

    Stage 4. Death. After the soul is drawn from the body God keeps it in a place between this world and the next. Good people’s souls are kept in a good place and bad people’s souls are kept in a bad place until Judgment day arrives, when everything is destroyed except God. At this time there will be resurrection of all Mankind

    Stage 5. Resurrection on Judgment day. All souls will get up from their graves. Obedient souls will go to paradise for ever. Disobedient souls will go to hell for punishment. Hell is for those who ignore or reject or refuse to believe in God.

    Any who worshiped false gods rather than God, The Creator , in this world , will go to Hell forever in the next world. There will be no reincarnation (being reborn again) from this world.

    Stage 6. The end stage for a disobedient soul is to enter Hell fire.

    http://www.islamicity.com/articles/Articles.asp?ref=kk1012-4379#sthash.9R0zZJ4r.dpbs

    Stage 7. The end stage for an obedient soul is to peacefully enter paradise in the form of new creation with different forms. God said that it is easy for Him to do so. In paradise you will be free from sickness, illness and will at all times will be healthy, clean, peaceful and satisfied with provisions. You will have beautiful young companions and never age, it is here you will dwell forever.

    This is because God is satisfied with the soul who is obedient to His Divine laws and the soul is also satisfied with God.

    – The first authority is healthy. It exists whether you acknowledge it or not.

    – The second authority is unhealthy. The beliefs it espouses may or may not be true. May or may not be of some use to some people. But because of the way they are presented. They should be completely rejected and disregarded.

    – You should always conduct yourself with dignity and respect, even within your own mind. If you want to retain these kinds of teachings and remain NAP adherent, you’ll make the effort to restate them and re-imagine them as aphorisms. Aphorisms one is free to accept or reject, according to his own will.

    – Should God himself appear before you, and demand you violate the NAP, you should say “No.” Though everything that exists be his creation, the mind he has created within you has become enlightened to understand that initiating force against your fellow man is never the right thing to do. Ever.

  3. More evidence, as if any was needed, that

    limited government+time=totalitarian dictatorship

    The monopolistic nature of government ensures that it can never be limited.

    As long as people believe they must obey “authority,” such abuses will increase in both frequency and severity until no freedom whatsoever remains.

  4. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

    Shall I guess: CD — Cop Death or DBT — Death by Thug

    This and other similar incidents do not give me (and I suspect others) a good feeling for law enforcement. It erodes any respect I may have had for them as a whole. It also makes me wish to minimize my contact with them. Rarely does anything positive happen during interactions with the LEOs.

    • The medical examiner will probably come up with some bullshit story that it was a heart attack, after all the ME’s are part of the thugocracy establishment. All those witnesses who saw this poor guy choked to death don’t count, being mundanes like the rest of us. I hope I live to see the day when a crowd surrounds the cops after an incident like this and beats the fuckers to death.

      • Me too, Mike.

        It is getting depressingly out of hand.

        And this guy’s “crime”?

        Selling cigarettes.

        I assume he owned the cigarettes, so the actual “crime” is tax evasion.

        Sentence? Summary execution.

        The NKVD at least had the decency to just shoot you.

      • This guy clearly posed no threat to “officer safety.” No aggressive move was made… by the victim. And given the context – a non-violent/statutory and very small potatoes “offense” – it is beyond egregious that a violent takedown was involved.

        These thug cops were clearly just looking for a pretext – an excuse – to rain blows and do harm.

        The fuckers enjoy their “work.”

        • Dear Eric,

          We all know the joke about the difference between the mafia and the government being a flag.

          We’ve all talked about how a thin veneer of civilization conceals government’s kinship with organized crime.

          Well that veneer that never fooled the perceptive, is currently being stripped away entirely.

          The mob boss wanted his “cut” from cigarette sales. In his eyes, the street hawker was “cheating him.” So he sent his goons to “teach him a lesson.” So the schmuck croaked. Big fucking deal. Dump his body in the East River.

          How is this in any way different from The Sopranos? Except for the flag of course.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQYTAogtYAg

          • It’s worse than the Sopranos!

            At least Tony isn’t going to tell you he’s “keeping you safe” – nor has he the effrontery to suggest you “consented” to be “governed.”

            He just wants the fucking money. Or else.

            I respect that.

            Or at least, I respect it more than the mewlings of such as Clover.

          • Here’s yet another incident.

            From Zero to Murder in Minutes: The Latent Lethality of Every Police Encounter
            William Norman Grigg
            http://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/from-zero-to-murder-in-minutes-the-latent-lethality-of-every-police-encounter/

            Whitehall, Pennsylvania resident Kevin McCullers may be crippled for life after being shot repeatedly in the back by a Pennsylvania State Constable trying to serve a warrant for unpaid parking tickets. At the time of the assault McCullers was backing out of his driveway on his way to Dunkin’ Donuts. The officer insisted — let’s all say it together — that he acted out of fear for his life, a condition that is diligently cultivated within the state’s enforcement caste.

            “They never knocked on the door! No nothing! I just heard the gunshots!” exclaimed Hafeezah Muhammad, a neighbor who witnessed the attempted homicide.

            It’s no illusion. They are getting to be more and more frequent. They are becoming “normalized.”

            Text: “I’m from the government. I’m here to help.”
            Subtext: “Where’s my fucking money?”

          • Dear Eric,

            Another citizen, served and protected by the courageous heroes of the Thin Blue Line, the only thing standing between us and “anarchy.”

            How many incidents like this is it going to take before the schaffenmenschen wake up?

            Hopefully we are moving toward critical mass at least. A majority of fully awaken individuals is probably too much to hope for.

        • eric, these guys live in their own weird world. Last time I had an encounter was with a deputy sheriff who pulled up in front of my KW while I was blowing the horn to alert a couple guys on a construction site to some caliche that had been dropped on the highway. He pulls up in his SUV with lights going and parks as if to block me. It was funny in a way, as if I couldn’t have shoved that thing with him in it into next year. I was obviously trying to get someone’s attention but he still got out with his hand on his gun. I got out and just told him he needed to go speak to “those guys right there”. He ended up saying he was allergic before our conversation was over. Allergic to what? I asked. Pain, he replied. Such a strange thing to say. Oh hell occifer, I love pain myself and that’s the reason I drive that rig. I don’t know if he ever did contact “those guys” since I just got back in the truck, backed up and went around him and left. I was probably lucky but there’s not much glory in shooting an old man I thought at that time. I have reconsidered that since but don’t know I’d do any different. I can get pissed too. Blocking me with a puny car, Jeezus.

          • Dear 8sm,

            “these guys live in their own weird world.”

            “Blocking me with a puny car, Jeezus.”

            Exactly right. These ass clowns are legends in their own minds. To him he could block you with his cruiser because he had the “weight of authoritay” behind him. That plus the weight of his swelled head, he probably figured his “gross vehicle weight” had you way outmatched!
