NEW YORK, December 3, 2014– On Wednesday, a grand jury declined to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo, the NYPD officer who was caught on video placing Eric Garner in a choke hold in July following accusations against Garner over alleged sales of loose cigarettes. U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R- Ky.), the leading 2016 White House GOP contender, delivered a statement that transcends party politics and cuts straight to the meat of why Eric Garner died. Paul is blaming his colleagues (rightfully so), and he’s the only one bold enough to do it.
Not even liberals at Huffington Post can resist the conservatarian Paul right now. Many of them are even saying they’d vote for the Tea Party-centric Senator over Hillary Clinton.
