… not really over … I’m a activist … My Dad’s name was Eric Garner. No one gets to see their parent’s last moments and I was able to see my Dad die on national TV … They don’t know what they took from us … he was loved daily … Elissa misses my dad. She tells me, “Are you OK mom, do you Miss PopPop?” She wishes he was there so her mom wouldn’t be sad any more.

I’m just trying to get the truth out there to tell his side of the story … For a whole year, I’ve protested every Tuesday and Thursday … I’m speaking out, me being his daughter … I don’t want the world to forget what happened to my dad …

I’m behind anyone who’s going to listen and speak up for us and I think we need to believe in a leader like Bernie Sanders…

Good report on this video endorsement ad by US Uncut.
