Why yes, the Clinton campaign is sleazy

Leaked emails released by WikiLeaks show how depraved Team Clinton is

Via Fox News

The Hillary Clinton campaign came under fire from Erica Garner on Thursday, the daughter of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer in New York City, after the latest batch of emails released by WikiLeaks revealed how the Democratic presidential nominee talked about her father’s death.

In a series of tweets, Garner expressed anger at the information that poured out from the email release.

“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” she said. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.

Garner also tweeted out links to hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that show staffers trying to figure out how to word an editorial on gun violence that would later run in the New York Daily News.

The emails reveal how Team Corruption was trying to use Eric Garner’s death to push for gun control. They prove how little his actual death means to hacks like Podesta and the rest of Hillary’s cabal. The only thing that matters is whether or not these deplorables can use his death to push their agenda

Mark Levin: Black Female Police Sergeant Supervised Eric Garner’s Deadly Arrest – Gateway Pundit

Conservative radio host and author Mark Levin discussed Kristinn Taylor’s previous post at The Gateway Pundit on the Black female police sergeant who supervised Eric Garner’s deadly arrest.

From Thursday’s Mark Levin show:

Lost in the racial outcry over the decision to not indict white police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Black petty criminal Eric Garner is the key fact that the attempt to arrest Garner was overseen by a Black female police sergeant.

The Black female police sergeant is not shown in the countless replays in the media of cellphone footage that showed white male police officers confronting and taking down Garner but she is said to be seen in the video.

From a police report reported by PIX11 in July, the sergeant’s name appears to be Kizzy Adoni.

“Another female sergeant, Kizzy Adoni, made a similar statement in the report. She “believed she heard” Garner say he was having difficulty breathing. Adoni also said “The perpetrator’s condition did not seem serious and he did not appear to get worse.””

There is no mention of Adoni in a Google News search of the latest reports on the Garner decision.

There are very few mentions at all that a Black female sergeant oversaw the attempted arrest of Garner.

What almost no one is saying about Eric Garners needless death

While everyone is busy arguing the role of race in the death of Eric Garner, they are missing the bigger issue, and that is the “crime” Garner was accused of, the “crime” that was, apparently worthy of arresting him for was what? He was accused of selling “loose” cigarettes. Yes, for that crime he was not issued a ticket. Why? Why can’t a citation/ticket be issued, with the amount of the fine, or the info to set up a court date for this? Should police really be physically arresting anyone for this? THAT was what spurred the choke hold, and the death of Mr. Garner. Sorry, but that is an insane manner in which to enforce such a law. Can you say over the top? There are instances where police need to use force, this was not one of them.

There is another thought here too. Many of those who are so outraged over this are on the Left. And, typically, they are calling for governmental solutions. But where does more empowering of government always lead? To more laws. To more power for the government. To more incidents where government over steps common sense. And yes, ultimately, to more incidents like this. We already have mechanisms in place to punish bad cops, use those. Good cops, as the vast majority are, are a blessing, but a bad cop is curse. We need to stop making good cops enforce useless laws, or, at the very least, change the way in which we dictate they deal with those crimes.

Eric Garner is not alive today because of a law that either should be stricken, or at least should be enforced in a better way.
