6 years after ‘I can’t breathe’
Nydaily News “Gwen Carr plans to spend the sixth anniversary of her son’s Staten Island chokehold death alone with her thoughts.”
“She will reflect on the unnecessarily violent NYPD arrest of Eric Garner, killed on July 17, 2014. The mother of three will contemplate the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 — and all the other Black souls lost needlessly to law enforcement in the years between the two deaths.” Nydaily News
“The more things change, it seems, the more they stay the same.”
“It’s like a boomerang,” Carr told the Daily News a few days before the Friday anniversary.
“George Floyd used the same words my son said six years ago. And now the cry is ‘I can’t breathe’ again.”
