*In the equivalent of a verbal lashing, the Rev. Al Sharpton had choice words for the witnesses that stood around and watched or recorded the recent police attack on – and subsequent death of – Eric Garner.
He was angry that people just stood around as a man screamed that he couldn’t breathe, and then did nothing as the officer continued to choke hold him.
On Sunday, Sharpton demanded justice for Garner, who he said was choked to death by New York City police, and said citizens who attack police officers should also be held accountable.
