In truly disrespectful news, over 100 police supporters wore “I can breathe” t-shirts in a protest last night in New York City.
The t-shirts, mocking the final words of Eric Garner, are truly a sign of disrespect. The NYPD supporters flooded Manhattan streets while chanting “I can breathe.”. The main protest took place outside of NYC’s City Hall where supporters confronted anti-cop protestors. The supporters began chanting “Don’t resist arrest” towards the Eric Garner and anti-cop protestors.
This news comes, just days after an Indiana police officer started selling t-shirts with the words, “Breathe Easy: DOn’t break the law.”
According to the Dailymail,
The t-shirts were produced by Corporal Jason Barthel of the City of Mishawaka Police in Indiana who owns and operates the South Bend Uniform Company.
The t-shirts, which cost from $7.95 are seen as a play on the final words of Eric Garner who died after being restrained by the New York Police Department.
