    The left likes to spin the death of Eric Garner as an example of racism and police abuse in America. But the fact is this, liberal policies created the conditions in which Garner died.

    New York is run by liberals. Liberals have raised taxes on cigarettes so astronomically high that they unwittingly created a black market for them. Eric Garner was selling cigarettes via the black market and New York wasn't getting their cut via the taxes that were supposed to be paid. Liberal politicians want the New York police to arrest those illicitly trafficking in non-taxed (non-stamped) cigarettes. Hence, the police caught Garner and, in the struggle to subdue him, Garner died.

    Liberals want more government, more taxation and more police to enforce their will. Then, when something goes south, liberals blame the police, racism or whitey. Got it?

    ...agreed. If I remember correctly, the commanding officer on the scene of the arrest of Garner, was a black woman. She instructed the officers to arrest him.

    Maybe others here can confirm or deny this.

    Sorry to say this, but your argument is mute until liberals stop using liberal thinking...I think I just heard an even larger sucking sound as their head goes farther up.

    If that be true then why have red states raised taxes on cigarettes also?

    Racist whites at all levels of government wrote unconstitutional laws that guaranteed state-sponsored racial discrimination against all Americans born without a pale complexion.

    "From the first segregated public housing projects of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, to the 1949 Housing Act that encouraged white movement to the suburbs, to unconstitutional racial zoning ordinances enacted by city governments...the American city is the direct result of unconstitutional, state-sanctioned racial discrimination.

    Poverty killed Eric Garner, and much of the inter generational neglect Garner was born into is baked into the US economic system.

    I think an argument can be made to justify additional taxes on cigarettes due to the numbers of people requiring government-paid medical care related to smoking. I think an argument can also be made that there IS such thing as too much taxation.

    Could you please post proof that taxes on cigs in red states are as high as the taxes imposed by leftists in NYC?

    Also please inform us of a black market on cigs in red states, similar to that of NYC.

    Must you always post stupidity?

    That tax is nothing more than the last tax we had on healthcare just a different name..And if cigarettes are that damaging why are public employees allowed to smoke?
