Incendiary tweets, march on police precinct mark anniversary of Ramarley Graham shooting

Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Ramarley Graham, who was shot by New York City police in the bathroom of his grandmother’s house following what police say was a drug sale. Graham’s family has filed suit against the city.

Occupy and other citizens groups marked the anniversary today by marching from the home where Graham was killed to the city’s 47th Precinct. Others posted tweets with the #RamarleyGraham hashtag, and few had kind words for the police.

Ostensibly about justice for Graham, the protest also included talk of revolution.

    Where is this kind of outrage when a police officer is shot in the line of duty?

      Exactly! This is really about the usual ‘Occupy’ whining, as shown by this tweet:
      “This is what this country spreads around the world. It is suffering, and oppression, and death.”

      Right. The most generous nation in the world, but according to doofus we spread nothing but misery. You can’t fix Stupid, and you can’t change a Marxist.

      Here we mourn a fallen officer. I mourn for the places that don’t.

    Spoiled rotten children. Nothing more…Nothing less.

    Maybe you should read up on the unjustified, unlawful, unnecessary killing.

    If only they were so upset about how many African-American children are killed by abortion.

        I suppose I’m the wrong color to have an opinion about it. I guess I should leave it up to these protesters to be upset in my stead.

          I didn’t say that. Stop trying to be deceptive.

    Anyone else find it funny that a lot of these people would also support laws making it legal for only police to own firearms?
