Of course this won't be a popular blog today. Have not written for several months. Call it writer's block or growing disgust with the political and social climate in the world today but just did not feel any pressing desire to write. But this recent event of the death of the asthmatic Eric Gardner struck a nerve.
Eric Gardner should not have died for selling illegal cigarettes but if he had just cooperated with cops he'd in all likelihood be alive today.

In Cleveland, 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot by Cleveland police when brandishing a BB gun that was mistaken by police as being a real gun. In Ferguson Missouri, thugs took to the streets burning the town after the police officer was not charged in the death of the not so saintly Michael Brown.
