Beck Says His Position on the Garner Verdict Will Likely Surprise Some: ‘It’s Obscene’
By Erica Ritz
Glenn Beck on Thursday said he “strongly” disagrees with the decision of the grand jury in New York not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the videotaped chokehold death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man.
“While I disagree with the protests and what they’re doing in New York, I strongly disagree with the decision,” Beck said on his radio program. “Here’s a guy who was not resisting arrest, was not being a jerk. The video is very, very clear. The police put him in a chokehold, threw him down. He has a heart attack and dies.”
