Waiting to exhale...I can't breathe!

What should have been a happy day on December 3 had a damper on it because the No Indictment in the Eric Garner case was announced! That is my son's birthday and I was looking at him praying to NEVER have to go through what the families of these tragedies are going through. This is the second time in 2 weeks that we have had to hear the words NO Indictment. It was almost too much! I watched the video over and over just to make sure that I did not miss anything and what I saw was a man who was clearly frustrated and tired. That day was just not the day but what happened next still hurts to watch. I say him choked to the ground where the other officers piled on top of him. I saw his head pushed into the concrete all the while saying "I can't breathe". These would be his last words. I feel like I am suffocating as these police related shootings keep happening. Since then Tamir Rice the 12 yr old in Cleveland as has been laid to rest but the cop who shot him wasn't even fit for duty! So you ask yourself why was even a policeman? Today an unarmed African American man in Phoenix was shot to death after a pill bottle was mistaken for I guess a weapon. I just want to be able to exhale! I cannot remeber the last time I did. Tonight I will discuss the times when I felt this feeling over and over!
