Comics Strip Of The Day used my cartoon and several others to talk about how cartoonists covered the State Island Grand Jury’s inability to see justice. As usual the written commentary by the host is most excellent. Check it out.

Caught On Camera

Seriously? No indictment from the Staten Island grand jury on the cop killing Eric Garner? It’s on camera. The police say the choke hold was illegal. Forensics said it’s a homicide. Cops really do luck out with grand juries.

We’ve been yelling for body cameras but after this it’s pretty clear no amount of evidence indicts cops, especially when they kill an African-American.

I’ve actually heard some conservatives who sided with Darren Wilson say the killing of Garner was wrong and the NYC cop should be indicted. That just makes me believe that if there wasn’t any video of Garner being strangled then those same conservatives would be siding with the cop and calling Garner a thug.
