Top Cop On Scene During Eric Garner's Choking Death was a Black Woman

A friend points me to this item:

I read over two dozen major media reports detailing the circumstances of Eric Garner's death yesterday, after the grand jury declined to issue an indictment against Officer Daniel Pantaleo, and angry demonstrators flooded the streets of New York.  Every single one of those reports, like all previous reporting on the case, went out of its way to mention that Garner was black and Pantaleo is white.

Some of those reports mentioned that several other officers were present on the scene.  A few of those reports noted, in passing, that a superior officer was watching over Garner's arrest.  A very few of those reports said that the superior officer was a woman.  Absolutely none of them - not one - mentioned that she was black.  But such is the case, according to a blog post at Gateway Pundit:
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.
That's a highly relevant detail, given that the protesters believe Garner's death was an act of racial discrimination, and Attorney General Eric Holder is grandstanding by claiming that the Justice Department will conduct a civil-rights investigation of Pantaleo.


  1. People need to realize that the bigger issue is that its the state vs you

    1. Ding ding ding! Now that I've "woken up", it really is amazing listening to the conventional mainstream news hearing how they always are trying to pit people against each other vs. seeing it's the state vs. the rest of us. I love this bumper sticker:

    2. Absolutely correct. White vs. Black is the false dichotomy that's shoveled at us by the state, which does not want us to undertstand that it's really state vs. individual.
