Eric Garner Chokehold Arrest

Why we’re not pontificating on Eric Garner tonight

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2014

To follow the facts, first you have to know the facts.

It’s very tempting to jump to conclusions in either direction about the Eric Garner Grand Jury non-indictment of one of the arresting police officers.

Yesterday, the Washington Post published a story about Donny Ray Williams, Jr. Williams is a convicted serial sexual abuser and former Democratic Senate aide.
