Bernie Sanders just released an ad featuring Eric Garner’s daughter

Eric Garner is a man who infamously died at the hands of New York City cops — all for selling loose cigarettes.

His last words, “I can’t breathe,” became a rallying cry for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Now, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has released an ad clearly detailing the injustice of that horrific incident.

The ad, featuring the slain Garner’s daughter, looks to show how much change is needed when it comes to America’s policing.

“My dad’s name is Eric Garner,” she says as quiet piano music plays in the background. “No one gets to see their parent’s last moments. I was able to see my dad die on national TV.”

    An important change, long overdue, is for the American police to stop acting like a force of occupation, and instead start acting like what they should be – servants of the people. Citizens may get the government they deserve, but they certainly deserve better than the police they have got.

    Hillary Clinton already has an ad with the families of Trayvon Martin and others. Someone else is speaking out, and it’s Hillary.

    Wenona and zapya are more time wasters – nothing to say, and their motivation is unclear, except maybe zapya is commercial spam.
