This morning as soon as I woke up I wrote this status on Facebook:
"I actually watched Eric Garner die last night. I read about it and saw the video circulating but I couldn't bare to watch it. I finally did last night and I had the worst sleep. I barely slept. It was as horrible as everyone described. I couldn't believe he died like that. He said "I can't breathe" about 3 times and those NYPD officers kept choking him till he was lifeless. At one point an officer joined in to rest his knee on his head or neck. Those words "I can't breathe" were in my head throughout my slumber and I kept jumping out of my sleep, but at least I get to wake up. R.I.P. Eric Garner. A black husband and father is lost senselessly."
