Barack Obama poured gasoline on the flames today after a New York City grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who killed cigarette smuggler Eric Garner.
Obama made it sound as if the grand jury made the wrong decision.
“It is incumbant on all of us as Americans regardless of race, region, faith, that we recognize that this is an American problem and not just a black problem or a brown problem or a Native American problem. When anybody in this country is not being treated equally under the law, that’s a problem. And it’s my job as president to help solve it.”

Obama: “This is an issue that we’ve been dealing with for too long….I’m not interested in talk, I’m interested in action.” #EricGarner
And Eric Holder is also going to make a statement shortly.
Did you ever in a hundred years think we’d have someone so radical in the White House?
