Re: NYPD officer in Eric Garner chokehold death not indicted by Staten Island grand j

I also know that grand juries almost never decline to indict. It's not a system where evidence is challenged; it's almost always a mere formality. It certainly doesn't match the level of scrutiny of a full file.
But hey, why talk about police brutality and injustices of the courts, when we can bitch about taxes?
Stand down, laddybuck. Conservative resistance to tyranny will always be implied, low-key, case-by-case, lest powers they relish be removed from government. If you want a full-out armed rebellion against tyranny, you need liberals.
You will be involved but I can count on you being on the wrong side.
