In the wake of the grand jury decision not to indict the NYPD officer who killed illegal cigarette salesman Eric Garner, race-baiters have come out of the woodwork to call for changes to the American justice system. Enter Shawn “JAY Z” Carter. The rapper met with New York Governor Cuomo on Wednesday.
According to the Gateway Pundit, Beyonce’s hubby wants Cuomo “to do a top-to-bottom review of the criminal justice system.” It’s important to note that the American justice system is widely regarded as the most fair and balanced in the world. But that’s not good enough, apparently.
“Gov. Cuomo and Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter had a productive conversation about doing a top-to-bottom review of the criminal-justice system and how we can all work together to pass a reform package that ensures equality in the eyes of the law,” Cuomo Communications Director Melissa DeRosa said in a statement.
One day before the meeting with Cuomo, players for the Brooklyn Nets sported shirts given to them by Jay-Z, which read, “I Can’t Breath” – the statement repeatedly uttered by Garner as he was placed in a chokehold by the NYPD. The procedure is protocol for handling suspects who are uncooperative and/or resisting arrest. Garner had a history of violence, which was well documented by law enforcement, so the officers who apprehended him had every right to presume that their safety was in danger.
