Dear Kremlin - they may be unintended consequences but you’ve still got blood on your hands. How’s about being real brave strong men & standing up & apologising to Holland, to Malaysia, to the AIDS community, to the Australians, the Ukrainians and everybody else…
A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.

Rory Stewart, the Conservative MP for Penrith and the Border, plans to create a Stonehenge-style stone monument at Gretna with the help of the British public. The foundations for a 50ft-wide cairn are being laid, and a stone-laying ceremony will be held on July 20. People will be invited to add stones and slates, hopefully even bearing messages of love for Scotland as part of Britain, to create a permanent symbol of the Union that will resemble a lampshade.
Tory Rory Stewart (Penrith and the Border) wants 100,000 Britons to form a coast-to-coast human chain along the Roman wall that used to divide the UK this summer in a gesture of love and respect to Scotland (now updated to forming a new stone circle by normal people all leaving a rock each). He told the Commons : “It cannot be simply economics. If a relationship is going wrong, if a marriage is going wrong, the answer cannot simply be to say ‘you can’t afford to break up because you are going to lose the house’. “The answer has to be only one thing, which is ‘I love you’. “And the nature of that love that we express for Scotland, we in this House are struggling to express. We are not very good as politicians in talking about emotions. We have become very bad at it. “But we need to learn to do it because otherwise a party which is trying to reduce, that is trying to shrink, that is trying to vanish, will win.
