Eric Garner didn’t have the luxury of quitting? He could have desisted from selling loosies after then n-1th arrest.

This means forgoing (illegal) income, but if you’re going to say (correctly) that the cops have the option of forgoing (legal) income, then surely civilians have the same kind of option when it comes to illegal income.

So, impoverished black people shouldn’t sell loose cigarettes if they care that much about not being police murdered in the street?

Seriously - are you trolling?

See, this is how stupid motherfuckers be. The article essentially says, “if cops don’t like the risks of the job and being ridiculed for their profession’s reputation for getting away with bullshit, they can quit.” Then Lostlakehiker comes in all ‘tarded and equates that with “If people accused of selling loose cigarettes don’t like being fucking choked to death by cops, they can quit.”

So in your moral calculus a loose cig is worth more than a man’s life?

Please, do NOT have a happy new year.

Nice little false comparison, combined with a total lack of morality and compassion, you’ve got going there.

Get bent.
