Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Readers sound off on Eric Garner, New York City parks and flag burning”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Manhattan: Leonard Greene’s column “Stop telling us we didn’t see what we saw” (July 16) repeats the lie that Eric Garner uttered the words “I can’t breathe” while being choked by Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo. The video clearly shows that neither Pantaleo nor any other police officer is touching Mr. Garner’s neck as he speaks those words. Nor does the apparent contact with Mr. Garner’s neck at an earlier point in the video provide evidence of a chokehold. The physical evidence from Mr. Garner’s autopsy clearly demonstrates that he did not die from asphyxiation or strangulation. And the very fact that Mr. Garner could speak those words is proof that he was able to breathe. But clearly none of that matters to Mr. Greene — he is the one telling New Yorkers “we didn’t see what we saw.” Patrick J. Lynch, president, Police Benevolent Association

Brooklyn: I happen to have watched the news the day of the incident and the Daily News video showed very clear that Eric was being choked. Anyone who says otherwise is either blind or lying. It was very upsetting to watch and I strongly feel that Pantaleo should be fired. Gloria Barone

Manhattan: Was it really necessary to headline the front cover with the incendiary “His black life didn’t matter” (July 17)? Who is The News to question the decision of the Justice Department? Why not give straight objective newspaper reporting a shot, without all the spins and innuendos? Benny Coluccio

Fishkill, N.Y.: It’s a real travesty. Justice is not blind for there is no justice when a human being can lose his life for just selling loose cigarettes. Benny Rosario

Fairfield, Conn.: Dear Donald: Love your country? Don’t hang out with Putin. Love your country? Don’t love dictators. Love your country? Pay your taxes. Love your country? Realize this: People are not criticizing the country when they criticize you. Love your country? Stop the lies and corruption. Bob Bodo
