Garner Widow: This Is Not a Black and White Thing

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the widow of Eric Garner, Esaw Garner, said his death at the hands of law enforcement was “not a black or white thing.”

Mrs. Garner said,  “I feel that he was murdered unjustly. I feel like , I  don’t even feel like it’s a black and white thing, honestly. You know, in my opinion. I really don’t feel like it’s a black and white thing. I feel like it’s just something that he continues to do and the police knew, you know, they knew. It wasn’t like it was a shock. They knew, you know, they knew him by name, they harassed us.” 

“They said things to us,” she continued. “We would go shopping. you know, they — hi, cigarette man. Hey, cigarette man wife. I would say, keep walking, don’t say anything, don’t respond, don’t give them a reason to do anything to you. And he just felt like, but they keep harassing me. And I say, just ignore them, Eric. He said, how much can I ignore them?”
