Eric Garner, a peaceful and productive citizen, had suffered years of pointless and unnecessary harassment by the costumed predators employed by the NYPD. He told one of them to leave him alone. Such impudence by a mere Mundane cannot be tolerated, so Garner was murdered in the street in full public view.
Several plainclothes officers were prowling Garner's Staten Island neighborhood on the afternoon of July 17 seeking to harvest revenue by catching harmless people in the act of committing petty infractions. Police Commissioner William Bratton describes this as "stamping out petty offenses as a way of heading off larger ones." in practice, this means authorizing police to commit actual crimes in their efforts to turn harmless people into "offenders."
