On Wednesday, a grand jury made the decision to?not indict David Pantaleo, the NYPD police officer who was filmed killing unarmed Eric Garner with an illegal chokehold. Shortly after the announcement,?Fox News bubblehead?Gretchen Carlson expressed her concern about the outcome. Oh she’s not one bit concerned that a man who was committing no crime was killed in broad daylight on a New York street and the killer won’t be indicted. She’s annoyed by the protesters and she was worried that it would affect the?Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
Watch this insanity:
After Gretchen showed her stupidity, legal commentator Arthur Aidala showed his by suggesting that Eric Garner wasn’t choked to death. Dang that pesky medical examiner’s report that showed that he was.
Sorry, Gretchen. We hope this didn’t ruin your day — or your Christmas — but?New York Times? Mike Grynbaum reported?this:
The mayor’s appearance tonight at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting has been canceled.
