I can’t breathe

“I can’t breathe.”

“I can’t breathe.”

“I can’t breathe.”

The last words gasped by Eric Garner as New York policemen put a strangle-hold on his neck and then pile onto his body, crushing his face into the concrete sidewalk.  The coroner says that his death is a homicide.  The grand jury says that cops don’t kill people.  So I guess that means black folks aren’t people.  But that comes as no surprise to anyone in the Village.

I can’t stop wondering: what will be your last words?
