NYPD supporters wear 'I can breathe' hoodies at City Hall, sparking war with opposing demonstrators

After going back and forth at each other, the anti-police brutality protestors jammed onto the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges to take their message to Brooklyn, causing massive traffic delays, according to the city’s Office of Emergency Management.

NYPD supporters wearing black hoodies with the words “I can breathe” demonstrated outside City Hall Friday evening, sparking a war of words with opposing protesters picketing at the same location.

Outnumbered 2 to 1, about 100 police supporters proudly sported the hoodies — a sick twist on Staten Island father of six Eric Garner’s final words as he died from a police chokehold on July 17.

1. Shockingly insensitive yet par-for-the-course for LEO defenders...

 

A "sick twist" indeed!

2. There's a term for that....it's called TONE DEAF, at a minimum, and DELIBERATELY GOADING at worst.

Of course those assholes can breathe--they're "in" with the "in crowd."

3. Of course they can breath. No one has them on the ground in a choke hold.

They might as well hold signs saying 'I am white and entitled.'

5. I doubt they'd wear those shirts

if they were the ones forced to the ground by 5-6 cops, who then sat on them while putting them in a choke hold. Jesus, talk about being tone deaf!

6. They don't understand that simply obeying the law won't protect you.
